We’ve been weaving in and out of scorching hot spells, those three digit temperatures making it feel like a cozy oven each time you step outside. I’ve been enjoying it, after the cold, damp winter we had, which still haunts me from time to time.

On one of these spells, I drove up to Sonoma with my friends Jane and Lisa, and we got to Sonoma Square in what felt like record time. Jane had arranged for us and a few other friends to a cooking demo/class and lunch at Edge, the culinary home of Stone Edge Farm Winery. Chef John McReynolds and the culinary team at Edge had an incredible day in store for us, and as we sat in the kitchen, there was an excitement that I found bubbling inside me that I know was mutual with everyone at the table.

Each course prepared celebrated seasonal finds, from the sublime asparagus tempura served with a Meyer lemon aioli, to seared scallops that were in a Peruvian ceviche with stone fruit. My first taste of figs this season (!) were roasted and served along perfectly seared duck breast, and the simple herb salad was refreshingly delicious. But it was perhaps the easiest recipe of the day that I knew I had to share with you.

Inspired by David Lebovitz, they made a simple blueberry frozen yogurt, and as I scooped up the creamy, tangy yogurt, it was the perfect ending to a perfect meal, on a very hot, summer, Sonoma day.

This week, as the temperatures rose to the triple digits once again, I realized it was the perfect time to make some frozen yogurt to share with you. I added some açaí to the mix — you know how much I love my açaí bowls, right? I loved how it added a little extra berry zing to each cool, refreshing scoop.

I must confess, this was the first time I made frozen yogurt at home, and it puzzles me, actually. I’m no stranger to homemade ice cream or sorbets, but why has it taken me so long to make homemade frozen yogurt?

The reason, I suppose, doesn’t matter. What does matter is I know this certainly won’t be the last.

Keyword açaí, blueberry, frozen yogurt
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Chilling Time 1 hour
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 8 servings
Calories 137 kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups 360g plain whole-milk Greek yogurt (I used Strauss Organic Greek Yogurt)
  • 3/4 cups 150g granulated sugar
  • 2 cups 240g blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 8 oz 200g açaí (I use 2 Sambazon Açaí Berry packets, 4 oz each)
  • 2 teaspoons limoncello liqueur see notes below
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  1. In the jar or bowl of a blender or food processor, add the Greek yogurt, sugar, blueberries and acai, in that order, and blend until smooth.
  2. Pass the mixture through a fine sieve or chinois strainer to remove the seeds and grit. Definitely take the time to sieve, or the frozen yogurt will have a gritty texture.
  3. Whisk in the limoncello and lemon juice.
  4. Chill the frozen yogurt base for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  5. Put mixture into an ice cream maker and churn for 20 to 30 minutes.
  6. Transfer to and store in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes

If you do not have limoncello liqueur, you can substitute your favorite liqueur.

Recipe inspired by a cooking class at Edge at Stone Edge Farm, Sonoma, which was adapted from David Lebovitz.

Makes 1 quart.

    Yep! I I’m fairly certain that one batch if this beautiful fruity treat would make me never want to go out and buy it again! I definitely need to experiment more with Acai!

      Funny how that works, Laura! For so long, I never bothered, and now I can’t imagine buying frozen yogurt again! You’ll love playing with acai!

    Your adventure in Sonoma sounds unforgettable — Edge sounds wonderful! I’ve only made frozen yogurt once and have no idea why? I need to get out the ice cream maker for this one — the blueberries and acai sound too good to pass up!
