Here is a recipe that I made the other day. I had been making different treats for friends who have different food allergies. The one I am describing today is Blueberry Frozen yogurt. If I gave you a bowl of this you would have no idea how simple and how healthy it actually is, because it is delicious. I used blueberries that we had picked and frozen fresh, so there was no sugar added. I also made this multiple times with different types of yogurt. Once with ginger lemon yogurt and another time with, plain Greek yogurt. It was delicious both times. But if you like ginger you might consider adding a little, it gave it such a pop of flavor really bringing out the blueberries. It is so easy and quick, I was delighted. Served it right from the container, no freezing or anything. It would definitely be something you could do as a dessert for those unexpected guests, and look like you have all your ducks in a row at any point in time. Which if you are me does not always happen.
Blueberry Frozen Yogurt/Ice Cream
- 2 cups of frozen blueberries
- a heaping tablespoon or two of the yogurt of your choice
- fresh squeezed lemon juice
Put everything in a food processor and blend till smooth and creamy.
If you are like me, you wouldn’t bother with this recipe unless you were on some crazy diet and in search of dessert, or on a health kick. I am serious it was delicious and I plan to make it again and again and again. I have yet to try it with other frozen berries but I bet it would work just as well.
I hope you enjoy!
The other night our parish young adult group ventured out to one of the several wonders of the ville. Where you ask? We went to a magical place that will give anyone’s inner sweet tooth complete satisfaction and a fix like none other. Two words:
You want soft serve? You got it. Milkshake? You got it. A Chocolate milkshake with a vanilla sundae on top?! You got it! Well actually I did and it was glorious let me tell you.
I could go on and on about their sweets collections, but I’ll spare you the mouth water details. You can thank me later. Did I mention they have chili dogs or tacos-in-a-bag? I tried to capture the whole taco-in-a-bag experience for you but those cards where not in my favor. So I’ll give you this. Can’t blame me for trying. *Taco-in-a-bag is Fritos, taco meat, cheese, salsa, and sour cream.
Enough about food Clare, lets move on.
I hear ya, I hear ya. Check it out though trust me.
After the ice cream social, we visited a fairly large grotto devoted to Our Lady of Lourdes and prayed one of my favorite prayers, the rosary. God’s presence was truly felt and the comfort from Mary’s veil engulfing us in her love and care was like a feeling I can’t fairly put into words. There may have been a ton of distractions, (UofL has some campus apartments near by and someone’s phone started blaring towards the end-that may or may not have been mine, you’ll never know) but its awesome to think of the example we were setting for everyone walking past. It’s okay to be Catholic, its okay to pray, it’s actually pretty cool..
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20
