Blueberry and Strawberry Yogurt Ice Cream
Posted on July 30, 2012
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 strawberry and blueberry combination is 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.
