This caramel corn frozen yogurt is a delicious way to enjoy the flavor of sweet summer corn throughout the year.
In a small saucepan, combine SPLENDA® Naturals Sugar & Stevia Sweetener Blend and water over medium-high heat. Stir with a fork or small whisk until mixture comes to a boil, about 1 minute.
Reduce heat to low and simmer syrup for 3 minutes, swirling the pot occasionally to ensure even caramelization. Mixture will be very foamy, sticky, and white. Remove from heat.
Slowly add evaporated milk to the pot and whisk immediately.* Return pot to medium-low heat. Whisk in the butter and simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened.** Transfer caramel sauce to a glass bowl or mason jar to cool.
Line a one pound loaf pan with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to chill.
Combine corn kernels, corn cob, and milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. When liquid starts to bubble around the edges reduce heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and steep for 30 minutes.
Transfer milk and corn to large, high-powered blender. Scrape cobs over blender to release remaining pulp and liquid from kernels. Discard cobs and puree milk and corn until smooth.
Strain corn puree over a bowl, pressing down to release as much liquid as possible. Discard solids and transfer liquid back to blender or food processor.
Add yogurt, coconut milk, 1/3 cup of SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener, Table Top Jar, salt, and vanilla to blender and puree.
Pour yogurt mixture into chilled loaf pan and freeze, stirring every 20 minutes for 90 minutes to 2 hours.
Drizzle about 1 tablespoon of prepared caramel sauce over yogurt and use a butter knife to swirl it into the frozen yogurt. Freeze again for another 2 to 3 hours, until firm.
Remove frozen yogurt from the freezer to thaw for 10 to 15 minutes before scooping. Serve drizzled with caramel sauce.
