Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Puree blueberries in a food processor. To remove skins, force the puree through a fine strainer into a bowl.

  • Add bananas to the food processor and puree. Add the strained blueberry puree, yogurt, sugar, orange-juice concentrate and creme de cassis or black currant syrup and process just until mixed in. If necessary, chill until cold.

  • Pour into the canister of an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. (Alternatively, freeze the mixture in a shallow metal cake pan until solid, about 6 hours. Break into chunks and process in a food processor until smooth.)
