Recently, I got samples of Yoplait's new blended Greek yogurt, in the blueberry flavor. I thought it was pretty good, but what was really surprising was that Bob liked it. Not, hmmm, well, if I was starving in a desert somewhere, I'd eat it, but he actually ate some as snacks.
Instead of having a super-sweet blueberry flavor, like jam was mixed in, this had more of a fresh blueberry flavor. I thought it was pretty darned good, too.
And then, this happened.
Blueberry Yogurt Ice Cream
2 5.3-ounce containers Yoplait Blended Blueberry Greek Yogurt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup creme fraiche*
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons Pinnacle Whipped Vodka
1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine all ingredients in a bowl - or better yet, in a large measuring cup (for easier pouring). If your ice cream maker requires it, chill the mixture for a few hours. I've been using a Breville Smart Scoop, and since it has its own compressor, I can get away with churning before the ice cream base is totally cold.
Churn according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to a storage container and freeze until firm.
*If you don't happen to have creme fraiche, just use an extra 1/2 cup of heavy cream.
I received samples of the Greek yogurt from Yoplait. I was not required to write about the product.
