Comments Off on How to Make Blueberry and Mint Frozen Yogurt

I’m known in our family for looking at a recipe and then deciding to make it my own before even trying out the original. I can’t say that I am an exceptional cook either. So, as you can imagine this doesn’t always work in my favour. However, when it came to adjusting the Blueberry Frozen Yogurt recipe that came with the Cuisinart Icecream, frozen yogurt, gelato and sorbet maker everything went so smooth! Excited to share the steps of how to make blueberry and mint frozen yogurt below!

I can’t give myself that much credit though, because all I really did was add mint. Though mint does change the flavour a whole lot, especially when blended together.

In the recipe it advises you to make the blueberry yogurt blend and let settle in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight. I decided to make mine overnight as it was already late in the evening when I started putting it together. I’d advise doing the same.

Using local berries that are season will also create a much stronger flavour. We used fresh berries from Klaassen Farms, just off the highway in Chilliwack. SO good!

Once it is time to use the Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt Maker it only takes 25 minutes to finish. I’d advise making it close to when you want to eat it. We had some leftover that I put into the freezer but that changes the consistency once frozen.

How to Make Blueberry and Mint Frozen Yogurt

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cooling Time: 2 hours – Overnight | Mixing Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Blueberries
  • 2 cups Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 3 – 5 medium sized mint leaves (depending on how strong you prefer your mint flavour)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Freezer bowl from your Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt make should already be in the freezer ready to go as per appliance directions.
  2. Add all ingredients together into a blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into a large dish and then cover. Cool in fridge for minimum of 2 hours.
  4. Once cooled set up Cuisinart frozen yogurt maker. Take freezer bowl out of the freezer, insert the paddle and cover with the lid. Leave the lid cover off.
  5. Add your pre-mixed blueberry and frozen yogurt ingredients with a spoon through the top hole of the lid. Put lid cover on.
  6. Plug in your machine and select the “Icecream” button on the front of your Cuisinart machine.
  7. Press start
  8. Wait up to 25 minutes for your frozen yogurt to mix, cool and thicken. (I turned mine off at around 22 minutes as the paddle began to slow down almost completely from the thickness of the frozen yogurt)
  9. Enjoy!

Thank you so much to Cuisinart for gifting us the Icecream, Gelato, Frozen Yogurt and Sorbet Machine. I loved how this recipe turned out so much I couldn’t wait to share it! Be on the look out for more recipes to come, I saw some tasty looking icecream sandwiches on their website that I can’t wait to try!

I’m sharing all the details about my recent experience at @irisvisualgroup on the blog. Talking about what it was like going in with the girls, what age you should first bring your kids and what I’m going to start using during soccer games. Can you believe I have been playing half blind? Link in bio ( there's also more images of the three styles if you want to see before you vote). #ad #irisvisualgroup
  • Tomorrow starts the first full week of kindergarten for that confident girl on the right. I didn’t realize how emotional I was about the whole thing, until her first full day and I was basically a big giant mess. Here’s to hoping I can hold it together.
  • Overwhelmed by the number of you that responded to my stories today. Parenting is hard. Some days so much harder than others. The good thing is, we don’t have to do it alone. When we open up and share (like I did this morning to someone I’ve only met a few times) we give ourselves an opportunity to learn and grow. My hope for all of you is that through your journey, you constantly seek, grow and share. It makes a difference.
  • Drove out to @centralcitysurrey tonight with this girl. Lots of laughs as we tried on our five looks for this Friday’s fashion show! Say what!?

There’s going to be six of us walking the runway from 12:00 - 1:30 PM, plus tons of other activities happening right by the food court ($500 mall giveaway draw, selfie station, beauty demos and more) — come on out and cheer us on

  • I made simple syrup for the first time at home and two things:
1. DANG that's good!
2. It's WAYYYY easier then I anticipated
•
After cruising a handful of different simple syrup recipes online I combined a few that I thought would work, reduced the sugar and substituted cream of tartar for lemon juice. For some reason I never like to follow the directions the first time and always like to try out my own... it doesn't always work out, but this time it sure did!! You can see more of the steps in my stories for how to make your own simple syrup and sparkling water using the new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch at home. I always love when things turn out easier than expected! Does anyone want the full recipe on the blog?
