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!

  • The other week @lovinglittlesblog and I were invited to participate in a black box cooking competition put on by @whitespot_restaurants and @eatdrinkbuybc in support of a charity of our choice. We competed against 8 other teams and created a pecan crusted chicken stuffed with goat cheese and fresh local blueberries. You guys.... it was GOOOOOD! But, there were lots of amazing dishes created that afternoon and even though we didn't win we were still able to donate $200 to the charity of our choice, @bcwomens.

Fun fact: White Spot and Triple O's serve more than 49,000 pounds of fresh blueberries in their menu items, all from local farmers across BC. That's a lot of blueberries and a lot of local love! Starting today blueberries have returned to all White Spot and Triple O's locations but are only available for a limited time while Mother Nature allows. We got to try their fresh BC blueberry milkshake and fresh BC blueberry pie this afternoon, still drooling.

  • Hello Buddha•Full friends. Happy weekend 🙌🏻🙌🏻 If you have time you should head over to @shopwillowbrook and the @buddhafullprovisions pop-up bus for a unique foodie experience! They are here today and tomorrow from 11AM-6PM for all your plant-based & vegan food needs. Soooo good! The kids slurped on some smoothies, and I enjoyed their Açai bowl up on the top of the bus as the summer sun radiated down. I guess you could say the whole experience is designed for a Budda-full life 😉  #ad #shopwillowbrook
  • Ok guys. @thebirdspapaya is a freaking babe, in and out. She’s started #SLOWMOBODYFLOW and her post had me like 😳🙊😅😂🥰 all the feels. But mostly left me feeling like, I gotta try this. For me, when I share progress photos like photo one, I always feel weird because even though I look smaller I know that the jiggle is still there, even though YOU cant see it. I’m so proud of where I’ve come this year in being more active and feeling stronger. Yes sometimes I wish I didn’t jiggle, but this post from Sarah got me excited to share that jiggle (swipe left) and not feel weird about it so I’m hopping right into her convo with a little SLOMO tummy jig.
  • I've recently taste tested @Breyers delights NEW flavours including Vanilla Cupcake, Caramel Brownie and Raspberry Fudge and they all taste amazing!
⠀
Each of the three flavours have 4 g of protein, are only 80 - 90 calories per 125 ml serving and contain high quality ingredients like Canadian milk and cream, cocoa, sprinkles, fudge, brownies and sustainably farmed vanilla beans.
⠀
Sounds pretty good right?! Want to try them out for yourself?

  • So I did a thing and tried something new (surprise surprise, right ha!) ⁠

I wanted a new style sunnies for this summer, but I loved the frames so much I also wanted them to be my everyday indoor glasses too. Well, I went for it, splurged a bit and got my first pair of transition lenses. One minute they are perfect for indoors and the next I'm rocking sunnies in the sunshine. Took me a bit to get used to, but easily my frames of choice these days. #ad #irisvisualgroup 📷@juliechristinephotography
