FroYo Cooper style

What's better than licking the beaters from cookie dough you ask?   Licking the big beater dripping with FroYo goodness! 
Well after 24 hrs the ice cream maker tub froze and we were able to create our vanilla frozen yogurt/ bourbon cherry froyo. It was extremely tasty and worth the wait! I don't think its the last time I'll be conjuring up this recipe.
Our dessert was topped off with a dose of a few good fireworks via our view through the trees. We heard the booming and walked out front and down the street till we had the bright bursts in view. Ahhhh summer!

The recipe I used for the base of the vanilla frozen yogurt can be found here at
The Cherry-Bourbon flavoring came from BHG's June 2011 issue.
Stir in 1/2 cup drained and coarsely chopped canned, pitted cherries in heavy syrup. ( Or do as I did and use 3/4 cup frozen pitted cherries and 2 Tbsp of honey.)  Add 3Tbsp of bourbon, I used Makers Mark for it's sweetness. 
In the last two minutes of freezing your FroYo or IceCream add the Bourbon Cherry mixture.  Taste and enjoy!!!!!!


  1. Yummo!!! That sounds great! When making mine, I just folded some fresh blueberries into some softened peach frozen yogurt from the grocery store. I guess that's the semi-homemade way out! I also made a huge batch of fruit salad with strawberries, blueberries, and peaches. I tossed it all in a honey and lime juice sauce to sweeten it and keep the peaches from turning brown. It is super good! I'll plate some up and photograph this evening! I'll have to share the recepie!
