8 Verry Berry Frozen Yogurt

I am new to ice cream making. I hope you can learn from my mistakes and give me any tips that you may have!

This recipe came from my Cuisinart ice cream maker. I made it because I happened to have all the ingredients on hand.

As the title suggests, it is VERY berry. Almost like a sorbet.


Warning: Frozen yogurt does NOT taste like the kind you eat at a frozen yogurt shop. You will get the 'tang' of the yogurt in this recipe.


I found this bag of berries in the bottom of my freezer.


You can use any mix of berries that you want.






The recipe calls for 12 oz. of frozen berries.


It looks like a lot.






After putting the frozen berries in my food processor, it was very thick. There is NO way I'm going to be able to strain this...

Mistake #1 Thaw out berries next time.

It needed some liquid.

Mistake #2. Use water next time.






Berry/milk mixture looks pretty thick...










I got myself a good workout, pushing the puree through a fine strainer...








2 c. of low fat vanilla yogurt.

Dannon Light and Fit is the best one that I've found so far.







I decided to use Splenda granular to lighten the yogurt.








I put the strained puree into the processor.


It looks very full.

Whew.





Now comes the fun part.


Turn on the ice cream machine.


Wait 25-30 min.






At 25 minutes, the mixture increased in volume and thickened.






I put the frozen yogurt into a freezer safe container.

Mistake #3. Eat this right away.

Low fat yogurts and ice cream become ROCK hard.

I had to thaw this out for 20-30 minutes on the counter.


Is it my favorite? No. Would I make this again? Yes. My husband likes it and it is a good alternative to the heavy, rich, and calorie laden ice creams.
