The recent outbreak of self serve frozen yogurt shops makes me ecstatic! They are so much fun… choose your own cup size, flavor (s), toppings and spoon color. Not only are they really fun but you get to chose how much, or little you want and then pay by the oz. I think this is a great way to pay! It just makes sense that the more you eat, the more you pay.
Now the only bad part is that I’m craving frozen yogurt more often. But I decided that since I’ve got a great ice cream maker and some creative foodie-ness…why not make my own.
This recipe is easy, adaptable, healthy, inexpensive and goes a long way.
Blueberry Pomegranate Frozen Yogurt
You will need:
•An ice cream machine
•2 cups plain greek yogurt
•2 cups plain regular yogurt
•1 cup Blueberry POM juice
•2 TBS splenda
I just wanted to briefly talk about my CuisinArt ice cream maker.
It comes in 4 pieces:
Stirrer/scraper and lid.
And of course the frozen ice bucket.
All you have to do is put the ice bucket in the freezer (I always do it overnight to make sure it is nice and frozen solid) and then put the bucket on the base, the stirrer in the bucket, followed by the lid. It is that easy and the results are always great.
1.) Begin by mixing the yogurt in a bowl.
2.) Next, add the juice and stir.
3.) All that is left to do is pour the mixture in the ice cream maker and let it do its thing! I had it on for a half hour. Depending on what kind of consistency you like you can freeze before eating or just eat right rom the maker!
This was a sneak peak in the mixer.
I served my yogurt with fresh strawberries. I can’t wait for strawberry season (late May!) so we can pick our own sweet berries.
So now that you’re craving some POM frozen yogurt, you need a nice bottle of POM juice, right? Well, you’re in luck because I’m giving away 3 coupons for a bottle of POM juice! All you have to do is leave a comment saying what your favorite POM juice flavor is (original, cranberry, blueberry, kiwi, nectarine, cherry, mango) or what kind you’d like to try or what you’d do with the juice!
I will pick the 3 winners using random.org on Monday night at 11:59 EST and then email you asking for your address. Good luck!
