This time around I decided to give frozen yogurt another try (check out my Mango Peach Frozen Yogurt).
I had a few bags of frozen sour cherries on hand and some fresh sweet cherries. I decided to combine them with tangy yogurt for a refreshing, pretty and relatively healthy summer treat.
Since my last frozen yogurt turned out incredibly frozen, I thought why not try one of the suggestions some of you left for me and add light corn syrup in hopes that this frozen concoction would not be as hard as rock.
And I got to use these two cute containers I bought at Crate & Barrel Outlet: do you like them?
Sour Cherry & Sweet Cherry Frozen Yogurt
3 cups plain yogurt
2 cups pitted defrosted sour cherries with juices (or use fresh ones)
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 cup pitted sweet cherries, halved
1. In a blender, puree yogurt, sour cherries and corn syrup.
2. Add the mixture to your ice cream maker and churn for about 30 minutes.
3. Add halved sweet cherries. Churn for 5 more minutes and transfer to a freezer-safe container.
(before and after)
The final result was still really really frozen and I had to let it sit out on my counter and melt a bit before I could scoop it out. The flavor, though, was terrific! If you don't love incredibly sweet desserts, you are going to really like this one.
