Peach Frozen Yogurt

It is the peak of peach season and if you are close (or even far) to an orchard or farm market I strongly encourage you to load up for the year. They are great for baking, making jams, ice creams, smoothies and of course eating fresh - my daughter eats 4 a day minimum :). You can't have enough of them. I can't believe there was a time when I did not like peach. I realized later that it was the mushy peach. I like them just ripe and still slightly firm.

If you go to an orchard right now they are plentiful and cheap and fresh without any of the waxy stuff you find on fruits in grocery stores. There are white and yellow peaches. The slightly more tart and acidic yellow peaches which become sweet as they ripe and the less acidic and sweet when ripe or not.



Ice creams and frozen yogurts are what you feel like eating on warm and humid days. Peach yogurt is one of the best as they come when made with fresh peaches. Feels like soft serve and is light enough if the sugar is controlled to be even eaten as breakfast ;) While I prefer using plain Greet Yogurt you can also use regular or home made yogurt to make the ice cream.

Wash chop, pit and chop the peaches. Take it in a blender. Add in the lemon juice.
Add in the sugar .
Blend the sugar and the peaches till it is well mixed. Add the yogurt.
Blend the yogurt into the peach so it well mixed.
Pour into the ice cream maker and churn for about 20 minutes. Ready to eat :)
Remove to a container to freeze for another 4 hours or so.


Did I tell that you should all buy an ice cream maker. You can buy one for less than $30 or slightly more. Mine is the most basic kind and it serves the purpose well. Store bought ice creams are heavy and sugary. Making ice cream at home you can control both. The recipe is based off of this recipe in Eating Well.
