Blueberry Frozen Yogurt

After baby showers and being laid up with a serious allergic reaction to posion ivy, I got on the scale this weekend. The results were not what I had hoped.

This is why we weigh ourselves regularly I guess...To depress ourselves

Either way we've got to bring a few things in line. And it couldn't be a better time. The warm weather naturally brings me to a lighter fare in my diet.

So this week I'm going to be concentrating on some lighter options on the menu because a working girl doesn' t necessarily need to change everything. She just needs to sprinkle in some healthier options and maybe smaller portions.

This recipe I created because I love greek yogurt, I love blueberries and I love cold things when its hot. Its really not rocket science. Now, if you need me I'll be at the gym torturing myself in Step Class.

Blueberry Frozen Yogurt
2 cups 0% Greek Yogurt
1 cup frozen blueberries thawed (if in season use fresh)
1/4 cup sugar or Honey
Juice of 1/2 a lemon

Blend the blueberries, honey/sugar and lemon juice in a blender/food processor then in a bowl mix the puree and the yogurt together and pour into your ice cream maker.

Enjoy after a hard workout or as a snack...Look forward to looser clothes.

  4. The ingredients are some of my very favorite things, and it seems so simple. Yet I never once thought to do this with them!

    Might be time to invest in a better ice cream maker before summer because I have a feeling this is going to be a staple of my diet for the next 7 months (Florida's lonnng summer). Or for forever.

  7. Sounds really good. Do you drain the frozen blueberries after you thaw them or do you incorporate the juice into the yogurt-honey-lemon mixture?
