Sour cherry frozen yogurt

Sour Cherry Frozen Yogurt

There’s a little roadside stand just outside of town where you can buy sweet and sour cherries every summer.  We were driving past a couple weeks ago and decided to stop for some.  I was originally drawn to Lottie + Doof‘s sour cherry coffee cake, but then I got a look at their recipe for sour cherry frozen yogurt and I changed my mind.  I’m sure the coffee cake is delicious, but something cold was just too enticing to pass up.

This is really good stuff and it makes great milkshakes too.  We blended up the frozen yogurt with chocolate soy milk, then topped it with some whipped cream and chocolate drizzle.  Mmm.  Mmm.

Recipe:  Sour Cherry Frozen Yogurt

(adapted from Lottie + Doof)

1 pound fresh sour cherries, stemmed and pitted

3/4 cup sugar

1 cup vanilla yogurt

2 drops almond extract

Put cherries in a medium saucepan with the sugar. Cover, bring to boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Cook until cherries are cooked through. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

Puree the cherries and their liquid in a blender with yogurt and almond extract until smooth. Chill for at least 2 hours or place in an ice bath to chill faster, then freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions.

    Hi–this looks DELICIOUS. This is perhaps a naive question, but do you need an ice cream maker to make this?

    Marie – It’s a good question, actually. Here’s a link to some chocolate frozen yogurt I made before I had an ice cream maker. Take a look and see if it helps. http://tinyurl.com/253orhs
