I was very excited to try making homemade frozen yogurt for the first time. Using fresh quality ingredients is always important to me and my family. One of the things I love about Stonyfield, is that it is made just minutes from my house! I know that I’m getting a really fresh local product. Stonyfield uses only all-natural ingredients in their yogurts, so I know that I’m giving my family the good stuff!
Stonyfield provided me with a Yay Labs SoftShell Ice Cream Ball to try out. First, Olivia and I went raspberry picking with a friend. We picked two pints of delicious raspberries. I’m not sure how many the kids ate but it had to have been at least another half a pint! Raspberry picking isn’t quite as easy as blueberry picking because of the thorns, but the kids did great. Here’s a quick tip for you – don’t wash the raspberries until just before using them or they’ll get soggy and go bad quicker.
Next you’ll need just a couple of other ingredients, and a little bit of time. Here’s how to make the raspberry frozen yogurt:
- 1 pint Stonyfield vanilla yogurt
- 1 pint fresh raspberries
- 1/3 cup sugar
- Toss the sugar and raspberries together and let macerate for 10 minutes.
- Gently stir the raspberry mixture into the yogurt.
- Pour the mixture into the metal cylinder - be sure to leave 1 inch at the top because the mixture will expand as it freezes.
- Fill the outside chamber of the ice cream ball with 1 cup of ice cream salt and as much ice as you can fit.
- Secure the cover.
- Pass the ball back and forth in a rolling motion for 10 minutes.
- Open and scrape down the sides.
- For a harder consistency, continue rolling for another 10-15 minutes.
- Scoop the frozen yogurt out with a wooden spoon and serve immediately, or store in an ice cream tub for later.
- NOTE: Do not throw, toss, kick, or bounce. It is extremely heavy and someone could get hurt, or the ball could break.
