Blackberry Chip Frozen Yogurt

Blackberry Chip Frozen Yogurt

  • 6 ounces blackberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt (I prefer Fage for flavor, and although I usually eat the non-fat, I used whole for this recipe for a creamier texture)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon vodka
  • 4 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped (or chocolate chips)

In a medium saucepan combine the blackberries, sugar, cinnamon and water.  Simmer over medium low heat until juicy and the berries have softened; mash with a potato masher to release all the juice.  Pour into a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.  Strain through a mesh strainer to remove and discard the seeds.

Whisk the blackberry puree, yogurt, vanilla and vodka together; cover and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight, until well chilled.

Freeze mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions, then fold in the chopped chocolate; transfer to a container and freeze until firm, about 4-6 hours.


Yields about 1 quart.
