Last week the food blogging sphere was full of blueberry sour cream ice cream and that got me craving some blueberry ice cream. Luckily the farmers market was still full of blueberries on the weekend I picked some up. Although I wanted to try a sour cream ice cream, frozen yogurt was calling my name. I could not resist pairing the blueberries with maple syrup and I used some to replace a bit of the sugar. Frozen yogurt can be a little tart so you have to use more sweetener than with normal ice cream. It is a good idea to add the sugar a bit at a time and taste test until you get it to the desired sweetness. Since I already had blueberries and maple I decided to add the third part of my current favorite trio of flavours, some toasted pecans. The blueberry, maple and pecan frozen yogurt turned out really well. The blueberry flavour was nice and strong there was a nice hint of maple. I really enjoyed the texture of the frozen yogurt and the toasted pecans added a nice contrast. Of course you have to melt all of the frozen yogurt in your mouth to find all of the pecan bits so you get to enjoy it longer.
Blueberry Maple Pecan Frozen Yogurt
- 2 cups blueberries
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup pecans (toasted and chopped)
- 2 cups plain yogurt
- Heat the blueberries, sugar and maple syrup and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
- Remove from the heat.
- Let cool then mix in the yogurt along with the pecans and test for sweetness.
- Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours.
- Freeze according to the instructions for your ice cream machine.

I have my ice cream maker chilling and love the thought of Frozen yogurt. Good one Kevin, the colors are so vibrant.
The color is out of this world awesome.
I’m soo drooling. I’m totally obsessed with fro yo since we got Pinkberry here in LA. This looks great!
I love your icecream recipes made with yogurt! They’re so much healthier and satisfy that ice cream craving.
Excellent recipe Kevin,sounds easy and great treat too.The colour is amazingly beautiful.
OMG I think I love you!
Yeah….you keep making me think I need to get an ice cream maker. Does anyone have an 8 quart size for jumbo families?
I love blueberry foods, too; summer is such a great time for dessert!
gorgeous, I love frozen yogurt even more than ice cream, heh
I like that you are using maply syrup in this frozen treat. I never had blueberry frozen yogurt before. I usually buy chocolate. If I had an ice cream maker I could try this treat at home.

blueberries, pecans and maple syrup are taking over your kitchen eh kev? 🙂
Kevin, the color on your frozen yogurt is so intense. It’s so eye-catching. What a beautiful dessert!

I really need to get myself an ice cream maker……

Your ice cream looks particularly good! An interesting combo!
The other day I made Maple Walnut Ice Cream (see Epicurious) and it was fantastic…
Amazing color this frozen yogurt has. I also love the addition of maple syrup and pecans. Lovey!
I wanted to make some of this too. The color is so awesome and blueberries are almost gone so I better get on it.
look so gooooodd!!.I like the color..I have ice cream machine but never try it out yet!,Thanks for sharing the idea:))
considering that i can eat pints of blueberries at a time and often pour maple syrup right down my throat, i think it’s pretty safe to say that i would love this. 🙂
Wonderful Kevin! Is there any left?

Oh yummy! I would like to do this with peaches.
This sounds so tasty! I think I’ll be picking up some blueberries at the market. Thanks!

I bought 5 lbs of blueberries over the weekend and am still deciding on what to make…..if I had room in my freezer I would definitely make this:D
This dish of frozen yogurt looks absolutely delicious! Yum!
Having an ice cream machine sounds like such a fun idea and if I had one I could make pretty ice cream and frozen yogurt like you do! The picture of this frozen yogurt is very pretty! I love the deep purple color. But then again, if I HAD an ice cream machine, I’d eat ice cream all the time! haha
That looks freaking wonderful! making my stomach growl!
kevin, yum! i love frozen yogurt and homemade is just that much better. love the flavor combination here.

The color you got on this is stunning and I bet this tastes great. I did a similarly flavored ice cream a while back–I love the blueberry/maple combo. Its like breakfast, but better…if that makes any sense
