Blueberry and Strawberry Yogurt Ice Cream

Blueberry and Strawberry Yogurt Ice Cream

I definitely love ice cream. Who doesn't? It is hard to resist ice cream. A while ago I decided to make homemade ice cream as much as I can as it is a healthier alternative to the store ones especially since I have children. 

 
Recently I discovered frozen yogurt and I like it so much that I am determined to try as many variations as possible this summer. Fruits and yogurt, frozen and smooth, served into waffle cones.. what ice cream can be healthier than that?  I love when my little daughter is calling for my pink ice cream in a cone and not feel guilty for giving her.
 
The blueberry and  strawberry yogurt ice cream is just great. We loved it so much that I could hardly keep some for a photo session. I consider it a very easy recipe and the best part is  that you don't need an ice cream maker for that.

Hi Ella! Thank you for sharing this recipe. I am dying to try it out! I just have a couple of questions: 1. Can I use Greek yogurt for this recipe? 2. Why does the yogurt needs to be drained before using it? And does it have to be for that long? 3. When you say stir every half an hour once the mixture is in the freezer, with what exactly do you stir it? A spoon? A mixer? My fear is that the mixture would be too frozen and that it won't work... I have never done ice cream in my life before, so please bear with me :) Thank you in advance! Gretel
