Lemon Blueberry Delight (recipe for Lemon Frozen Yogurt)

Lemon Blueberry Delight
Sometimes two wrongs do make a right.  The other day I made blueberry muffins and because I love blueberries so much, I thought, "More is better, right?"...not so much.  Too many blueberries and my muffins were a little soggy and sunken in.  Anyway, I wrapped 'em up and put 'em in the freezer to be eaten another day.

Then my friend Shirley Betz told me about a yummy lemon blueberry frozen yogurt she had made and I thought I'd give it a try.  My attempt was not so good.  I did, however, stumble upon a tangy lemon fro-yo that I was quite proud of.

Okay, so on to the "right" part.  Today I was thinking, lemon and blueberry are just a match made in heaven and voila! it occurred to me that the lemon fro-yo would be really good over one of those blueberry muffins.  Oh boy, was I not kidding!  Talk about refreshing!

Since my blueberry muffin track record isn't too good yet, I'm only posting the frozen yogurt recipe.  It couldn't have been easier to make thanks to my new handy-dandy attachment for my KitchenAid mixer but you could use whatever ice cream maker you have (thank you to Shirley who steered me in the right direction with this purchase).  Literally, you freeze the bowl part, set it in the stand, place the swirly thing in there (aka the "dasher"), pour in your mixture and let her rip.  15 minutes later, I had soft serve frozen yogurt to die for.  Scoop the frozen yogurt into a container and store in the freezer.  It will be firm in a few hours.

Here's my recipe for Lemon Frozen Yogurt (adapted from a  Food Network Kitchens recipe):

Serves 2-4

2 cups Greek yogurt (I used Fage Total)
2 large lemons, zested
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup superfine sugar (more or less to your taste)

Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk together until blended.  That's it.  Seriously, that's all there is to making the mixture that you'll put in your ice cream maker.  Just follow the manufacturer's instructions and you're golden.  Yummy, tangy, citrusy golden.
