Homemade Blueberry FroYo

If you follow my Instagram you know last night I was on a nicecream roll with my favorite Christmas present ever, my Ninja. Sweet tooth was more like sweet teeth, and I couldn’t get enough! In all my experimenting, this afternoon I made blueberry froyo with my vanilla nice cream. OMG. It’s a MUST TRY. You can totally sub the blueberries for any other kind of fruit, too, I just had a freshly frozen bag of organic blueberries in my freezer I wanted to dabble with.

It’s a wild and crazy Sunday evening here at 10pm, so I’ll cut right to the chase…the recipe! Enjoy!

DAY BEFORE PREP:

  1. Mix milk [2 cups], vanilla, sugar & salt in Ninja/Vitamix/blender and blend until sugar dissolves completely.
  2. Pour mixture into ice cube trays and freeze overnight or until frozen solid

WHEN READY TO EAT:

  1. Add “ice” cubes into Ninja/Vitamix/blender
  2. Add 1/4 cup almond milk
  3. Add frozen banana and frozen fruit of choice
  4. Add Greek yogurt [if dairy free, leave out and add more milk]
  5. Add avocado
  6. Blend everything until perfect fro-yo constancy is reached. If you’re using a regular blender and have to add more liquid to get everything smooth, add more milk. You can pour everything into a bowl and add to freezer for a bit if you need to harden it longer. When using a Ninja or Vitamix you should be able to achieve perfect FroYo consistency without adding additional liquid.
  7. Scoop out mixture, place into bowl, and serve! Top with fresh fruit and sprinkles, and enjoy immediately.
