Blueberry Frozen Yogurt
I'm counting on blueberries to save my brains and help me live longer and here is why: according to the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center, not only are they higher than most other fruits with antioxidants, but they contain anthocyanin, which gives them their unique color and also slows age-related loss of mental capacity for motor behavioral learning and memory as well as retention of signal-transmitting neurons. Blueberries are great for the urinary tract. have anti-inflammatory properties and help prevent aging diseases and dysfunctions caused by free radicals.
What's not to love about these little blue berries?
2 cups of fresh blueberries (frozen will work too)
2 cups of plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar (to taste)
1 tsp vanilla
Mix this all together in a bowl and freeze according to ice cream maker instructions. My family likes the blueberries whole, but if you would rather have them blended, puree the blueberries before adding them to the mixture.
