While we're on a political roll, I'm celebrating the premiere of Veep with an early episode that I will always associate with the show's antics, plus it's even CALLED Frozen Yogurt. Selina was set to have a froyo tasting at a local DC shop where they even named a flavor after her. Selina gets a taste of the presidency in this episode, and between the staff and her dismissal of her VP tasks once she's briefly called to be president, this episode is always one I like to revisit. Although she went thinking she was going to try the flavor named after her, Selina Strawberry, she only got melty vanilla. I wanted to go the fruit route though since I already made vanilla ice cream, and I had frozen blueberries on hand. If you want to make vanilla, I considered using this recipe (via Greatist) before settling on blueberry. I guess we can call this...Biden Blueberry?
Blueberry Frozen Yogurt
inspired by Veep season 1, episode 2
makes 2-4 servings
- 16oz frozen blueberries (I just froze fresh ones but you can buy them frozen)
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt, any fat (the more % fat the creamier the yogurt)
- 1/4 cup honey (if you don't LOVE honey, sub in another sweetener because the flavor comes through a lot)
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Put all ingredients in a blender (or in my case, Nutribullet) and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a freezable container and freeze for four hours until overnight, until set. Serve and enjoy alone, with toppings or as a dessert side. If you can't wait for it to freeze, eat it as a smoothie bowl!
