Roasted Cherry Chocolate Chip Bourbon Frozen Yogurt

INGREDIENTS:

2 cup pitted & halved cherries
1 + 2 tablespoon honey (adjust honey to your desired sweetness. I ended up adding a bit more than 2T)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
3 cup plain full fat greek yogurt
2T bourbon (or more if you’re feeling adventurous)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Toss cherries with 1 tablespoon honey and olive oil in a small bowl. Spread out on lined or very well greased baking sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven, set aside.

Whisk together yogurt, bourbon and remaining  honey in a medium bowl. Freeze mixture for about 30 minutes.

Remove the bowl from the freezer and whisk vigorously breaking up any chunks that started to freeze. Add roasted cherries and chocolate chips and transfer to a shallow baking dish (a 8×8 or something similar).

Return to freezer and freeze for about 2 hours, removing every 20-30 minutes to stir and break up mixture with a spatula. After 1.5 hours you should have an almost “soft serve” like consistency.

Transfer frozen yogurt to a medium bowl and blend with a hand held mixer on medium speed until creamy. (*I don’t have a hand mixer so I used a blender and that’s why it drastically changed colors)

Return to freezer (in the medium bowl) for another 30 minutes and you’ll have a “soft” frozen yogurt like consistency. Finish with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Note: If eating after being frozen overnight or many hours later, remove from freezer 10-15 minutes before serving.
