So maybe the kids have been bugging you all day for a sweetie treat or your taste buds have been screaming out for something a little bit special after your midday lunch or evening meal? Obviously you have used the “eat some fruit” option that your mother always told you to do when the matter of a sweet snack arose when you were little. But ofttimes a piece of fruit just doesn’t satisfy – either moaning children or your greedy stomach. Enter this amazing recipe – delicious homemade one minute blueberry frozen yoghurt (or any other frozen fruit for that matter)!
This is actually inspired by a Jamie Oliver recipe. When I first saw it I couldn’t believe that such a delicious dish could be made in such a short space of time. But I assure you that it is one of the simplest and yummiest treats you can make – not mention healthy! Jamie Oliver used frozen mango, which I think is absolutely delicious (yoghurt and mango, after all, are the ingredients in a mango lassie which are a classic falvour combination). But for this recipe I use blueberries and a little mint, which is a wonderful medley of flavours.
You could pretty much use any frozen fruit you like – berries, banana, kiwifruit, pineapple etc. But the problem with other berries in particular, is the seeds, which in my view ruin the texture. So I like blueberries the best. But feel free to experiment and definitely give the frozen mango Jamie Oliver flavour combo a go! But in my view, this one minute blueberry frozen yoghurt definitely takes the cake! You can also turn this recipe into a smoothie if you add some extra liquid (water or milk). And if you want a vegan version – you can use coconut yoghurt.
Ingredients (serves 1):
- 100g yoghurt plain
- 100g frozen blueberries (or any frozen fruit)
- 1-2 tbsp coconut sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
- 1 sprig mint + garnish
Throw all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and whizz until smooth. Don’t overwork the ingredients or they will start melting and you will have more of a slush than a blueberry frozen yoghurt. You can put it into the freezer for 10 minutes before serving if you want. But it will turn icy if you leave it too long.
You can also turn this into a blueberry yoghurt smoothie if you want to add 1/2 cup of water/milk/milk substitute (i.e. nut milk or rice milk).
