Blueberry Banana Frozen Yogurt

blueberry soft serve

It may be September, but it’s still so hot in Los Angeles that my mind won’t yet stray from popsicles and ice cream.

Thankfully, I never get board of frozen treats, and believe they have a place on the menu during every season no matter the weather.

So even if you’re in a cooler climate and already onto apple and pumpkin recipes, I think you’ll want to pause for a second to make this easy soft serve recipe. Call it a #tbt to summertime :)

I’m pretty obsessed with making simple soft serve in the food processor (as you may have noticed during July when banana, mango, and three-berry soft serves all appeared on the blog). But what inspired me this time was Stonyfield’s new Petite Creme “fresh cheese” – which is similar to Greek yogurt in texture & protein but without the tartness and tang.

After my first bite of Petite Creme, I knew it would combine perfectly with frozen fruit to make the most fabulous soft serve. And it did.

Next I think I’ll try mixing Vanilla Bean Petite Creme with frozen pumpkin puree and cinnamon for a pumpkin pie-like treat. Stay tuned!

How Much Sugar is Too Much?

At any given time, people are collectively pointing fingers at a particular food or ingredient, saying it’s the thing to blame for our current obesity epidemic. Right now that food is sugar. But is sugar – and all it’s pseudonyms – really to blame for obesity? I say no. Though Americans do eat a lot more sugar […]

10 Easy Ways to Reduce Food Waste
