I like to go to farmers’ markets and buy all the fresh cherries I can find during the season. My kids are big fans of fresh fruit and, while we eat all we can, I like to show them you can use the produce to make some tasty, healthy recipes, too.
Getting the kids involved in picking out fresh fruits and vegetables and having them help in the kitchen will make them more keen on trying new, healthy recipes! This recipe is a hit during warm summer months.
2 cups cherries
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1-1/2 cups vanilla yogurt
In a blender, combine cherries, sugar and lemon juice. Once blended, fold the fruit mixture in with the yogurt.
Add to your ice cream machine per directions. Spoon into a freezer safe container and freeze until you are ready to serve!
