Creamy Blackberry Frozen Yogurt

I'm trying desperately to hold on to any remainders of this wonderful season. I've already frozen tons of slices of peaches for a cold winter afternoon when I need a juicy peach cobbler. I'm now making my way through all the blackberries we have close to our house. Jam will be made, don't you worry. For now, because we've been enduring the craziest heat wave, the blackberries are turned into smoothies and other cold treats. Creamy Blackberry Frozen Yogurt(printable version) 3 cups fresh blackberries3 cups yogurt cheese (or Greek yogurt)1 can sweetened condensed milk ( 14 ounce can, it's fine if it's a bit more or a bit less)In a blender, puree the blackberries with the sweetened condensed milk.In a medium bowl mix the puree with the yogurt cheese.Pour the mixture in to your ice-cream maker and follow the manufacturer's directions.

Simply line a tin with paper liners, then drop a marble in between the tin and liner. (Balls of aluminum foil will also work.) Carefully fill the liners to a little over 1/2 full (overfilling will cover the heart shape effect). Bake, remove from pan, remove marbles, cool, and frost. Nom nom nom / Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes.
