Ingredients

  • FOR THE FROZEN YOGURT:
  • 4 frozen bananas sliced
  • 8 ounce cream cheese {I used Neufchatel Cheese}
  • 3 tbsp raw honey
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • FOR THE BLUEBERRY COMPOTE:
  • 1 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 1/2 tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • Optional Topping or Mix-in: dark chocolate chips {highly recommended}

Instructions

  • Add blueberries, raw honey, and lemon juice to small sauce pan. Cook over medium heat and bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook 5-7 minutes or until blueberries have released juices and sauce begins to thicken. While sauce is simmering, take fork and gently mash blueberries. Once cooked, remove from heat and pour into bowl, add to refrigerator or freezer to cool while you make the frozen yogurt.
  • Meanwhile, add frozen bananas, cream cheese, honey, lemon juice and vanilla extract to food processor. Process on high for 30 seconds, then remove and scrape down sides, before processing for another 30-60 seconds or until smooth consistency has been reached.
  • Pour half frozen yogurt into freezer safe container {I used a pyrex dish with rubber lid}, then drop half cooled blueberry compote in large spoonfuls over ice cream. Top with remaining ice cream, then remaining blueberries. Use a butter knife to swirl blueberry compote into ice cream.
  • Cover container with lid or plastic wrap and put in freezer for 8 hours or until firm enough to scoop.
  • Enjoy!
