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!

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

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