Never have I had so many blueberries! In my search for more recipes I found several that called for an ice cream maker. Since I didn’t have one I started shopping. I wanted one that day so I was limited to stores; no Internet shopping. The only one I could find was a Rival that didn’t require ice or salt. Instead you freeze the bowl and an ice ring in the freezer. I’m very happy with the ice cream maker. It’s convenient if you keep the bowl and rings frozen when not in use.

I had egg whites left from the Blueberry Cream Pie.

Also in the refrigerator I had lots of Greek yogurt, along with the rest of the ingredients. So I picked this recipe.

Claudia Fleming’s Almond Meringues with Lemon-Ginger Frozen Yogurt and Blueberry Compote

The meringue cookies added a nice crunch to the dessert. It would still be delicious without them.

You pour the mixture in the ice cream maker while it’s turning. I could see why since it started freezing immediately. It took about forty minutes to freeze to the right consistency.

The blueberry sauce was a cinch to make. I think I’ll use it in some other recipes. This dessert was a big hit with my company.

It wasn’t long before there were lots of blueberries again. This one didn’t require an ice cream maker. It was quite refreshing, and composed of healthy ingredients.

Blueberry-Lemon Sorbet

All the ingredients are added to a blender. It was so easy.

After blending, I put it in a glass loaf pan to freeze. An hour of freezing was all it took. And it used lots of blueberries!
