Blackberry Frozen Yogurt – a healthy way to enjoy a frozen dessert, sweetened with blackberries and honey
Juicy, plump, summer blackberries are the star of this delicious dessert!
You won’t believe how much flavor is in a scoop of this healthy ‘nice-cream’. With just 4 ingredients, the blackberries really shine. Be sure you use good quality ingredients as they will make all the difference in this recipe. Juicy berries, flavorful honey and smooth creamy yogurt are a must! However, feel free to substitute blueberries, raspberries or even strawberries if you prefer, but this gorgeous blackberry color is part of the fun!
Blackberries are a good source of Vitamin E, C, K and dietary fiber, plain Greek yogurt is packed with protein, and honey is a great all-natural sweetener.

PRINT THE RECIPE!
- 32 ounces plain Greek yogurt
- 12 ounces fresh blackberries, rinsed
- 1 cup honey, more or less to taste
- a drop or two of pure vanilla extract, if desired
- Place the blackberries in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Strain the blackberries through a fine mesh sieve set over a large mixing bowl. Using the back of a spoon, press the mixture against the sieve to extract all the juice. Discard the seeds and any pulp.
- Add the yogurt to the blackberry juice and stir to combine. Add about 3/4 cup of honey and taste for sweetness. You may need more honey depending on how sweet the blackberries are. I used just under 1 cup. Add vanilla if desired and blend until smooth.
- Process in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer instructions. Serve immediately if you prefer a soft serve consistency or freeze until firm. If frozen remove from the freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
