Homemade Blackberry Frozen Yogurt Ice Cream

Last Christmas my sister got me the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment. I don’t think I need to say how happy I was! I’ve wanted to buy it for years and always kept on procrastinating, but now I finally have it – Thank sis πŸ™‚

Yesterday, since spring is finally here and it’s getting a bit warm in Shanghai, I’ve decided to try it out. I went to the fruit vendor downstairs my house and bought some fresh blackberries, then grabbed some low-fat/low sugar yogurt and head back home.

Homemaking ice cream, once you owe an ice cream machine, is SUPER easy. I love the fact that you get to decide the consistency you like, how sweet you want it, if you want to make it fat-free or or low in sugar.

I can tell you this ice cream maker will be one of the things I will be using the most in the coming month!

For today, enjoy this low-fat/low-sugar frozen yogurt deli.

Happy Sunday!
