Berry Ginger Frozen Yogurt - The Lemon Bowl


One reason I love living in Michigan is that we are still very much enjoying summer! Berry season is in full force and I am savoring every last bite.

Blueberries from Market - The Lemon Bowl

Right now, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries are growing locally so I have been picking them up at my local farmers market several times a week. Both of my boys love blueberries so I always have them on hand either fresh or frozen.

Raspberries are at their peak sweetness right now so I have been grabbing those each week, too. Asking me to pick my favorite berry would be like asking me to pick my favorite child so for when my good friends at UDIM asked me to create a Berry Dairylicious recipe, I decided to use them all!

Mixed Berry Ginger Frozen Yogurt - The Lemon Bowl

Well, three of them anyway: blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. While I absolutely love real ice cream, I decided to create a guilt-free frozen treat that I could serve to my toddler without worrying about a sugar crash. The whole milk yogurt not only adds a creamy texture but it is protein-rich and packed with health benefits.

Feel free to use whatever berries you have on hand or have stashed in the freezer! This recipe is ideal for any of those overly ripe berries that might be almost ready to toss. The sweeter, the better.

No forks required.

PREP: 30 minutes
COOK: 8 hours
TOTAL: 8 hours 30 minutes
Servings12

Ingredients
 

  • 32 ounce container whole milk plain yogurt (full fat)
  • 3 cups mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
  • cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions
 

  • In a small sauce pan, heat berries, honey and ginger over medium heat. Stirring frequently, bring mixture to a light boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl. Working slowly, gently pour the warm berry mixture through the strainer using the back of a rubber spatula to press out all of the liquid. At the end you should be left with the ginger chunks and berry seeds.
  • Refrigerate the strained berry-honey-ginger mixture so that it is completely cold, a minimum of 8 hours or overnight. This is a good time to place your ice cream maker insert in the freezer if you haven’t already.
  • The next day, whisk together the cold berry mixture and the whole milk yogurt along with lemon zest and a pinch of salt. Stir until fully incorporated.
  • Pour mixture into ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Notes

Store frozen yogurt in an air-tight container in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.

    So basically what you’re saying is that I should make at least five batches of this to preserve the berryliciousness well into fall. On it.

    Although I am not a frozen yogurt lover (would rather have ice cream) I did make this today. The color is beautiful and flavor is great! Everyone loved it, including me. We are no way ready for fall recipes yet at our house!

    How would this taste with low-fat or nonfat Greek yogurt, Liz? I suspect it wouldn’t be as creamy, for one thing. Thanks!

      Hi Marlene – It would taste delicious but the texture/consistency doesn’t turn out correctly unless you use full fat. I tried it and it was more like a thick smoothie. Delicious but not what I was going for. :)

        Thanks for the prompt reply, Liz. That is important to know–and I’ll have to try the combo with nonfat yogurt when I want a smoothie!

    Do you think I could do this without an ice cream maker?

    1. Liz DellaCroce Avatar
      Liz DellaCroce

      You could do it without one but the consistency would be less creamy. It would still taste delicious though!
