Blueberry Frozen Yogurt Recipe for the Blueberry Full Moon

The Blueberry Full Moon is coming up this Saturday August 29th, 2015…and it happens to be a SUPER MOON! A Super moon typically happens 4-6 times per year and it’s when the moon is really close to the Earth. So this full moon should be a BIG ONE! Crossing my fingers that the night sky is clear!

In preparation for this months Blueberry full moon…here is a second recipe! Blueberry Frozen Yogurt inspired by THIS RECIPE!

Blueberry Frozen Yogurt

Ingredients

1 small package of fresh blueberries (washed and then frozen over night)

Yogurt (eye ball it for smooth blending…can be plain or flavored…we tried vanilla)

Honey or Agave Nectar (a squeeze or two for sweetness)

Lemon juice (a squeeze for balance)

Directions

Blend it! haha.

Side note….I roughly went along with the recipe linked above. This was my version. I added some splashes of milk to get the blueberries to blend easily…but it turns out that if you don’t eat it right away then the yogurt gets kind of foamy…I think the milk did that. Also, if you don’t like textured food (bits of fruit) then you probably won’t like this recipe because it has a lot of blueberry bits. My oldest daughter wasn’t a fan of all the blueberries. Next time I’ll plan on using less blueberries and more yogurt per my girls request…and NO milk. Just yogurt, blueberries, agave, and a splash of lemon!

P.S. I have ONE more recipe from my mom that I’ll share ON the Blueberry Full Moon morning! (August 29th!!!)

Blueberry Cobbler Recipe for the Blueberry Full Moon

August’s full moon is called the Blueberry Full Moon or the Sturgeon Full moon…a time when both are in season! In preparation for the upcoming Blueberry Full Moon on August 29th (the day before my birthday!!!) I want to share some blueberry dishes leading up. First up…my Grandma’s Blueberry Cobbler recipe from Alvin and Imogen Duke.

Blueberry Cobbler from Grandma via Alvin and Imogen Duke.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of Fruit (for this recipe we will be using blueberries.) If you want to make an apple cobbler you will need to add 1 tsp of cinnamon to the apples. If you want to use canned fruit use the liquid it comes in!
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 cups of sugar

For the dough:

  • 1 1/2 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/3 cup milk

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

While you are making the dough bring the 3 cups of water and 2 cups of sugar to a boil until the sugar is dissolved for the sugar water. It might look like a lot of sugar water but you will use it all! Also go ahead and melt that stick of butter in a 9×13 dish in the oven.

To make the flour cut the shortening into the flour and then add the milk. Kneed the dough until it is smooth. Roll it into a rectangle.

Put the fruit on top of the dough and then roll it into a log. Cut into small circles about 1-2 inches thick. Place the cut circles flat into the melted buttered 9 x 13 dish and then add ALL OF THE SUGAR WATER. Yes, it looks like too much (might even make the circles float). But trust me…it makes a delicious blueberry goodness…you need all that sugar water.

Bake until brown around 55 minutes. Serve it WARM! That’s the best! Even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Love & Moonlight,
