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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Whisk in the limoncello and lemon juice.
  • Chill the frozen yogurt base for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  • Put mixture into an ice cream maker and churn for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Transfer to and store in an airtight container.

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.
