How to Make Homemade Frozen Yogurt

The weather here in Oregon has been so strange. The summer got a late start, being cool and wet into July. And now, just days after school has started around here, it is 98 degree out!
I know most bloggers would have posted a frozen yogurt recipe in June, but I’m feeling as unpredictable as the weather.

My frozen yogurt recipe couldn't be simpler. It only has three ingredients: plain yogurt, cream and homemade freezer jam. I have an overabundance of freezer-jam and I didn't even make any this year. Last year, when faced with all the lovely berries that grow here in such abundance, I... well, I just went overboard. If you do not have the same problem, I'll give instructions for using fresh or frozen fruit.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups plain yogurt, not low-fat (I use my homemade yogurt)
  • ¾ cup cream (heavy, whipping or my favorite: skimmed from the top of raw milk)
  • 1 cup of jam (I used strawberry) or 1 cup of chopped fruit and your preferred sweetener to taste (I'd go with ¼ cup of honey)
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon of vanilla
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  2. Run until desired consistency (chunky or smooth).
  3. Place in ice-cream maker and wait until frozen.

That’ s it.  You now have a frozen yogurt not to be rivaled: sweet, tangy, rich.  (My mouth is watering just thinking about it!)
Eat with abandon, knowing in your heart that this treat is healthy enough for breakfast, but decadent enough for a wonderful dessert.
Hmm… healthy enough for breakfast… I wonder how this would be topped with my homemade granola?
I think I’ll find out tomorrow morning.
Enjoy!

  3. Soliloquy! You have no idea how big my smile is right now. I’ve missed you. Great to hear from you, even if it is only to be taunted.

  4. Just wondering — since I don’t own an ice cream maker — if I could use these ingredients and make like the recipe from Eagle Brand Milk….You whip the cream until stiff, then fold it into the other ingredients, put into a plastic container, and freeze until solid. Anyone have an opinion? Thank you for the recipe! :-)

    • It’s worth a try. It might work best if you give it a stir a few times as it freezes. Let me know how it goes.
