Blueberry Frozen Yogurt

       I've given up on it ever getting hot here. I have a whole long list of things to cook and bake based on the warmer weather and if I keep putting them off because it isn't warm enough, I'll never have a chance to enjoy them!

So here's me kicking this cooler weather where the sun doesn't shine and putting the ice cream maker lower on the shelf so that it can get used more often! My family and I are currently in love with this frozen yogurt and I may never go back to making ice cream again. There is something so perfect about frozen yogurt..the fresh flavor,the creamy texture of the greek yogurt, it's perfection in a bowl! When you make your own frozen yogurt it doesn't taste anything like the stuff you buy in the shops and stores..this tastes a thousand times better. The ingredients list is small, you can pronounce everything that goes into making it and the super fresh taste of it will make your taste buds stand up and take notice.

So go make some. It's not hard and do NOT skip the part about pushing the mixture through a strainer to remove the seeds. I was seriously amazed how many seeds are in blueberries!
