Blackberry Honey Frozen Yogurt

After last week's ice cream maker success (see the recipe for Chocolate Ice Cream), we decided to give it another shot.  I'd seen a recipe for Blackberry Frozen Yogurt this week that I wanted to try a variation of.  Blackberries are great, but I decided to add a honey twist to it.  This frozen yogurt is sweet, smooth and tangy...and only has 3 ingredients.



Ingredients
3 cups blackberries
1 14 ounce Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
3 6 ounce Chobani Greek Yogurts (honey flavor)
1 Tablespoon honey (optional)

Directions

Wash the three cups of blackberries.  Puree in a food processor or blender until smooth.







Strain blackberries with a fine strainer to remove all seeds.  Spoon a cup or so into strainer at a time and press liquid through with a spoon into a separate bowl.




Pour smooth blackberry puree into a large bowl.  Throw seeds away.

Mix in Sweetened Condensed Milk and then Honey Greek Yogurt.  Stir til smooth.  If you wish to add the additional tablespoon of honey, do so now.

Refrigerate for 1 hour.  The cold ice cream mixture will freeze better in the ice cream maker.





After mixture has chilled for about an hour, pour into your ice cream maker and let spin for 45 minutes according to manufacture's instructions.



At this point you can either eat it right away or put it in the freezer to harden a little more.  Since it was mid-afternoon, we chose the freezer so we could save the treat for dessert.



Enjoy with a few leftover blackberries!

  1. Uh seriously, I'm not a blackberry fan, but that looks amazing. Especially since you strained out all of the seeds!

    YUM!

  12. It looks so tasty!! Getting the ingredients is easy since it’s only a couple of ingredients. The added honey makes it all better. It’s an unusual recipe for me since I’m not used to eating blackberries, still I’m gonna make one since I already have the rest of the ingredients and I just need the blackberries. Thanks for the recipe!
