Peach frozen yogurt


This hot summer evening I made a light and easy dessert - peach frozen yogurt. 


Ingredients 
Frozen peaches - about 16 oz. cut up
3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tsp lemon juice
Sweetener to taste. 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup sugar 


Directions 

The night before peel and cut up fresh peaches. They are in season here so I got some local ones. I used 4 large peaches to get approximately 16 ounces. Freeze them on a tray or plate. Lay them out on parchment paper so they don't stick. I regret missing this step since I had to pry mine off the plates.

Once they are frozen (or start here if you bought pre frozen peaches from the grocery store) place about a third of them in your food processor. Add all the Greek yogurt, lemon juice and sugar. I used stevia but you could subsitute honey, sugar or any sweetener here. Blend for a few minutes until soft. This may take up to ten minutes. Stir intermittently as needed to break up the chunks. It will blend soft eventually. Add the remaining peaches slowly until all blended. You may taste it and include more sweetener if you'd like. 

You may eat it now but will probably be the consistency of thick soupy froyo. I recommend packing in ice cream tubs or Tupperware and freezing for a few hours to overnight. 

Enjoy!




(Here's where I thought putting all the frozen peaches in the food processor at once would be a good idea! I have a 7 or 8 cup machine I believe, and that was a bad idea. I recommend starting with just a few and adding more slowly)




Used Jenis containers optional. Freeze and eat yum! 

Makes approximately 1.5 pints.

  1. I think this is such a clever and awesome idea! Although considering we've had an ice cream make for 2 years that we've yet to use, who knows if I'd ever actually take the time to make frozen yogurt!
