I found some fresh apricots in the grocery store and snatched them up. After leaving the grocery store, I realized that I forgot the ice cream and in this heat we are all screaming for ice cream. I pretty much always have vanilla yogurt in the fridge so I thought I would attempt to make frozen yogurt with my apricots. The natural tang from the apricots mixed with the yogurt made for a pretty tangy dessert, but my kids LOVED it. Any fruit would be great in this recipe with the sugar adjusted to the sweetness of the fruit. I can’t wait to try strawberries and if only I had some blackberries. A refreshing treat to cool you down, it doesn’t get any easier than this!
