Picture of Edible zombie eyeballs!!!
Here's how to make a tasty fruit treat that looks like zombie eyeballs, and is actually good for you!

Step 1: You will need:

Longan - This is an asian fruit similar to lychee. It should be available in the asian section of any big grocery store. It has the taste and texture sort of like a pear.
Fat-free plain yogurt
Blueberries (frozen or fresh)
Zip-top plastic quart bag (the freezer kind, they are thicker and more sturdy)
Frozen fruit juice - Apple/Cherry or any other red kind
Strainer

(optional)
Fat-free sweetened condensed milk

Alternatives:
Lychee instead of longan (a little sweeter, but a little harder to work with)
Cream cheese instead of yogurt
Raspberries instead of blueberries

OMG! These look horrible... but great at the same time!

If you make yogurt and cheese as often as we do, you'll have a lot of whey on your hands. You can also use it in place of milk or water in any baking you do. We make a pot of beans only once in a while, but bake something every day of the week...so never throw that whey away!

Add the whey to a pot of beans; you'll end up with a complete protein. (Thank you, Alton Brown)

You can stir in a couple tablespoons of very fine confectioners (berry) sugar when it's done... just don't stir it hard or the yogurt cheese will turn a bit runny. Tastes great, and has a thicker consistency than with the condensed milk. Excellent idea! It's a brilliant idea, thanks for sharing!

Oh, this is too much fun! For the record, if you live in an ethnically diverse area, you can perhaps buy Labnan or Greek yogurt which is already a soft cheese consistency, thereby cutting down in the straining time.

Check here for recipes using whey or do a google search for "whey recipes." Healthy :)

And thanx for the eyeballs - saving them for SIL's med. school graduation.

Do you think whipped and softened cream cheese might work in place of the yogurt?

Awesome! Love the way the juice runs into the fruit to give a veiny texture. I presume lychees would be a fine substitue?
