Homemade Blueberry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt with a Cookie Butter Swirl. Go big or go home, right?
Summer is winding down and soon enough it will be time for warm apple pie and cozy slippers. While that sounds really good, I’m also determined to make the most of the nice weather while it’s still here. And believe me, this is the way to do it.
This frozen yogurt is perfect for the last lazy days of summer.
It’s lusciously creamy with the perfect balance of tart yogurt and juicy summer berries. And then there’s that Biscoff swirl, which takes things completely over the top.
It’s basically like having pieces of cheesecake crust right there in each scoop. And – if you ask me – the crust is one of the best parts of cheesecake.
Without that swirl, this is still a solidly good frozen yogurt.
But with it? Mind blowing.
Just a few spoons full of the spicy cookie spread transform the frozen yogurt into an indulgent treat that you’ll want to linger over for as long as possible.

Ingredients You’ll Need
Greek Yogurt. I use plain yogurt and add vanilla extract, but you could use vanilla yogurt.
Blueberries. I love the flavor of fresh blueberries in the summer! You can swap in any other berry though if you prefer.
Lemon Zest. This helps brighten the flavor of the berries.
Sugar and Honey. For the perfect touch of sweetness.
Cream Cheese. This helps stablize the frozen yogurt and make it super rich and creamy. It also gives it a prefect cheesecake-like tang!
Evaporated Milk. To round out the frozen yogurt base.
Cornstarch. To thicken the ice cream base.
Cookie Butter spread. For that mouthwatering swirl!
