Blueberry Maple Frozen Greek Yogurt

I’m getting good use out of my new ice cream maker.

Like I told you guys last time, my next experiment would be frozen Greek yogurt and here it is! I’ve been so excited to share this recipe with you guys because it combines the very best of summer flavors, in my opinion. I’ve been loving Shauna’s blueberry crisp this summer — probably have made it about a dozen times now — and it’s introduced me to the delicious combination of blueberries and maple syrup. Yum. It worked so well in a crisp that I just knew it would work as a delicious frozen yogurt flavor….and I was right!

You’ll never believe how simple it is to make this delicious frozen treat! Unlike my peanut butter cup ice cream recipe, there’s no need to wait for a custard to chill in the fridge before churning — here, you just combine all ingredients and then let your ice cream maker do the work. Within half an hour, you’ll have amazing blueberry maple frozen Greek yogurt!

The ingredients in this one are simple. Perfect for hot summer days. Just fresh blueberries {lots of ‘em!}, Greek yogurt, sugar, pure maple syrup and a touch of sea salt. Be sure to use whole fat Greek yogurt, preferably organic, in this recipe for optimal frozen yogurt creaminess.

This frozen yogurt is delicious on it’s own, but I have a hunch it would be even BETTER sandwiched between two gingersnap cookies. Oh my. I still have some left in my freezer so I think I’ll be giving that a try soon.

This frozen yogurt is best enjoyed the day you make it! Just churn and then let chill in the freezer for about an hour before serving. Or, you can eat it straight from the ice cream maker bowl if you prefer more of a soft serve texture. Homemade frozen yogurt tends to get a bit hard as it sits in the freezer overnight so if you can avoid that, I recommend it.

This is a super busy week for me as I prepare to leave for Ethiopia on Friday! I can’t wait to share my trip with y’all. Check back tomorrow for an awesome giveaway that you don’t want to miss!!

I will have to try making frozen yogurt with whole milk greek yogurt. I tried making a different kind of frozen yogurt and it didn’t come out as good as I wanted.

What a summer treat. Love it! Maple and blueberry sure sounds like a delicious combination. Good reason to get my ice cream maker out again.

Love this recipe since I’m ice cream intolerant. I’m just missing the ice cream maker though!

This is so gorgeous! I love that you used maple syrup as a sweetener too. I’ve been trying to use it instead of agave but it’s been a hard switch to make!

I love making homemade froyo! Although, I should admit I’ve been lazy, so I’ve just been buying pre-made flavored greek yogurt and dumping it right into the ice cream maker. But this one sounds way better!

I have a giveaway, too–I’m giving away LOTS of prayers for you on your Ethiopia trip ;)

Ok, you’ve got me convinced that my next kitchen gadget needs to be an ice cream maker! This sounds heavenly! (And now I’m clicking over to Amazon to check them out! Do you have a model that you’d recommend?)

I can’t wait to give this a try! Blueberry treats are the best. I discovered this blueberry lemon zest bread recipe earlier this summer and have been loving it. Thanks for sharing your frozen Greek yogurt recipe!: http://curiouser-and-curiouser.com/2013/05/29/beach-trip-prep-blueberry-bread/

Jenna this is gorgeous! Love the colors! So vibrant with all those berries! I bet it tastes heavenly and it’s nice that it’s a little lighter than ice cream. Can’t go wrong with Greek yog!

Tara August 5, 2013 at 2:15 pm

I am making this at the moment…. it’s been in the ice cream maker for 30+ minutes and it is still liquidy….. should I just go ahead and stick it in the freezer? Or need to wait longer for it to harden? First time using this ice cream maker!

jenna August 5, 2013 at 2:28 pm

Was your ice cream maker bowl frozen? It needs to be frozen for any ice cream to develop in it!

Tara August 5, 2013 at 3:44 pm

oh…..my….gosh.
and this is my biggest blonde moment yet.
(was it being my first time using it your hint?? haha! wow!)

Kim August 5, 2013 at 2:41 pm

Ooh, yum! I just packed up my ice cream maker for my upcoming (this weekend) move, but once I get settled into my new home, I will dig it out and make this recipe! My mouth is already watering to try it!

Ooh like blueberry pancakes but better. This is exactly why I am not allowed o have an ice cream maker….

This looks outrageously good. I like the idea of a soft serve texture with frozen yoghurt, actually. All the sooner to eat it, too ;) I cannot wait to get stuck into my icecream maker when I get home from travelling. Have a great trip & thanks for the recipe.
