Although summer has officially come to a close and fall has began, living in the South offers me the opportunity to continue to indulge in my favorite cold treats. In recent years I have slowly migrated away from ice cream (although I will always adore it’s creamy texture) and began embracing the lighter, healthier frozen Greek yogurt. I prefer it over regular frozen yogurt because it has a thicker texture, not so watered down and lifeless. By adding your favorite treats and fruits of the season, you can revamp an ordinary Greek yogurt to one that is tasty, luscious, and frozen. I came across this recipe for a peach frozen yogurt on the “Week of Menus” blog (they have some other wonderful ideas with peaches if you are a fan!)
Honey Peach Frozen Yogurt
Makes about 1 quart
3 ripe peaches, peeled and cut into chunks. (about 3 cups of cut fruit and you can use a mix of white and yellow)
¼ cup honey
2 ½ cups Fage Greek yogurt
With a blender or a hand blender, puree peaches. Add, honey and yogurt and puree more.. Pour contents into ice cream maker and turn on for 25 to 30 minutes, until mixture is stiff and bunching into the blades.
Remove all frozen yogurt from ice cream maker and store it in another container. Freeze for an additional 2 hours. Serve.
