Blueberry & Lemon Yoghurt Streusel Muffins are light and fluffy in texture full of fresh summery flavours with a crumbly oat and almond streusel topping. They’re perfect to take on a picnic or as an afternoon treat to share with friends and family with tea or coffee.
As soon as the sunshine hits, I’m all about the refreshing zingy flavours of summer rather than the warming spices of autumn and winter. I try to use citrus fruits as much as possible in my cooking as they can really lift a dish. Not only are citrus flavours great in savoury dishes, but they taste amazing in baked goods as well to help balance any sweetness.
Rather than chilled yogurt like a lot of muffin recipes to create a lighter texture, I’ve used vanilla frozen yogurt. I love how it tastes with the blueberries and lemon and it adds a delicious tangy note to the muffins. I’m collaborating with yoomoo again this year as part of their yootime campaign. I’ll be creating a series of recipes to show how you can use their products in exciting ways to help you enjoy your meals and feel good. I previously blogged my recipe that also uses their vanilla frozen yogurt in case you missed it.
Coincidentally, you may not be aware that June is also Natural Frozen Yogurt Month, a yearly event that’s purely dedicated to all things frozen yogurt. This recipe would be the perfect way to celebrate the nations love of frozen yogurt, not there was ever an excuse needed to eat more of it!
Muffins are really portable, making them a great option to take out on picnics. We go on a lot of picnics when the weather is warm to make the most of the sunshine. It’s so nice to find a beautiful country park to go for a long walk and then settle down with a delicious basket of food as a reward. Even if you were not thinking about going on a picnic soon these would make a fantastic on the go snack or a homemade gift to take to a friends house for that personal touch.
