Blueberry Frozen Yogurt

seeing as i am a bit crazy about ice cream, i'm not quite sure why it took me so long to buy and ice cream maker. maybe it was a subliminal restraint for myself. if i always have the capability to make ice cream, i very well may always have ice cream in the house now ready for me to eat. however, i decided if i am going to eat ice cream (occasionally, i hope), i would like to know what is going into it.

i have been buying haagen-dazs five because it has just five, pure ingredients. but, let's just say haaden-dazs gets a little hard on the wallet. a long-time client gave me a williams-sonoma gift card for christmas, so i finally got around to using it this week. now, i am finally the proud owner of a cuisinart ice cream maker. it came with a bonus extra bowl so my first test was actually 2 different types and two different flavors.
enter blueberry frozen yogurt and vanilla bean ice cream.

dad gave be 2 pints of fresh blueberries and i used some of them in the frozen yogurt. it had wonderful flavor from the sweetness of the blueberries and the tang of the greek yogurt. it was so refreshing on a hot summer night. i topped it with a couple of blueberries and it was perfection.
