Happy Memorial Day
We finally have some summery warm weather here, which is perfect for this long weekend! I decided to make some fruity ice cream stars for my sisters and I to enjoy outdoors at our Memorial Day picnic. Of course, my food crazed cat bro Bert just had to photo bomb my photo. He was determined to get into the yogurt! Bad cat!
The ingredients are simple – blueberries, strawberries and plain fat free or low fat yogurt. I also am using a star mold, but you can use any shape you like. I start by blending the blueberries with some of the yogurt. Of course, that pesty cat was still trying to get into my ingredients! I find it best to just ignore his antics.
The third layer is then the strawberries blended with some yogurt. I smooth that mixture on top of the plain yogurt. You need to be careful not to use much pressure or you might blend the layers. As you can see by my smile, I am pretty proud of my work so far.
Once they are frozen, about an hour in the freezer, pop them out of the star mold and serve on a festive platter. They are supposed to be red, white, and blue, but they look more purple, white, and pink.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day today! If you would like your own PDF copy of my recipe, complete with photos, click here to download it.
