Recipe: Blueberry Graham Frozen Greek Yogurt

By Erica, http://www.ericasweettooth.com

The Greek yogurt lends a tart flavor that’s reminiscent of the cream cheese in a cheesecake, minus most of the fat and a lot of the calories.  I love the combination of sweet blueberries with the tart yogurt and the crunch of the graham crackers mixed in is great for texture.  If you have an excess of blueberries around, you must make this froyo!  Or at least whip up some of the blueberry sauce to top on everything you eat. This easy to do recipe is so healthy.

Ingredients:

32 oz 2% Low Fat Greek Plain Yogurt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp vodka (to keep the froyo from freezing too much in the freezer)
3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
4 tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
5 graham crackers, crushed

Directions:

Make sure your ice cream maker is in the freezer for at least 24 hours before use.

To strain the yogurt beforehand, line a strainer or colander with paper towels, and place the strainer in a medium-sized bowl. Scoop the yogurt into the paper towels, cover with another paper towel, and place in the refrigerator overnight. This will help make the yogurt even creamier

You’ll want to make the blueberry swirl syrup a day early too so the mixture has time to cool. To make the blueberry swirl, combine the blueberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, until thick and syrupy (10 minutes). Refrigerate overnight, or until fully cooled

The next day, fold the sugar, lemon juice, and vodka into the strained yogurt. Transfer mixture to the ice cream maker and let it churn according to manufacturer’s instructions, about 20-30 minutes.

When frozen yogurt is done, gently fold in the blueberry syrup and graham cracker crumbs. Top with extra graham cracker crumbs and enjoy!
