Purple Cow Frozen Yogurt

8 06 2011

So I am sure I have stated this before but my husband is obsessed with ice cream or almost any variation of it. Ever since we got our ice cream maker he has been making ice cream at least once a week and then topping it with all kinds of goodies. Now I am a bit jealous because he can eat all the ice cream he wants and not even gain a pound and maybe even lose a pound. Me however can gain a pound just by looking at the ice cream much less eating it. But when you make it at home and you can control the ingredients you can get a healthier version of ice cream. For example this recipe is frozen yogurt and uses Greek yogurt which is not bad for you in moderation. On top of that using fresh blackberries gives it so much flavor and you even get a bit of chocolate in this recipe. Enjoy!

Purple Cow Frozen Yogurt

~ 3 cups Greek yogurt

~ 1 tsp. vanilla extract

~ 2/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp. sugar, separated

~ 2 cups blackberries

~ 3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped

~ 1 oz. white chocolate, chopped

1. Combine yogurt, 2/3 cup sugar and vanilla in a large bowl, preferably one with a pour spout. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Meanwhile, puree blackberries in a blender or a food processor. Strain the blackberries using a fine mesh strainer, then stir in the remaining tablespoon of sugar. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

2. Add blackberry puree to the yogurt mixture and stir until combined. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s directions. To add the chocolate you can add it once the yogurt is about half way done freezing so that they don’t all fall to the bottom or you can mix in after the frozen yogurt is done freezing. Place in an airtight container and freeze until firm.
