Light & Tangy Honey Peach Frozen Yogurt

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

I spent my college years watching Sex & The City with my girlfriends. SATC night was a bonding session that involved food and lots of laughter. Those were memorable times. :-) It shouldn’t be a surprise that I watched it the first night it came out, and I dragged Dan to the show, too! After the movie, I was hankering for a cosmo (haha). Having had margaritas earlier that night, I settled for a non-alcoholic light, sweet and tangy peach frozen yogurt served in a martini glass, of course. This was a perfect night cap. [Yes, I’m a hopeless midnight-snacker.]

Honey Peach Frozen Yogurt

I used 2% Fage greek yogurt for this treat. It was very refreshing and I’m happy to say that it’s another one of my yogurt concoctions that’s approved by Dan. The one-quart batch is almost gone!

What flavor(s) should we try next? Any suggestions?

Here’s the recipe for you to try:

Ingredients to make 1 quart of frozen goodness

  • 15 frozen peach slices (defrosted)
  • 3/4 and 1/8 cup clover honey
  • 2 cups (500 grams) 2% Fage Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk

Preparation:

  1. In a blender [or Magic Bullet if you have one], pulse the peach slices with 3/4 cups honey until the mixture is smooth and homogenous. If your peach slices are not cold, cool this mixture in the fridge before continuing.
  2. Mix the yogurt on low speed for 2 minutes, and then add the milk and honey-peach mixture. Mix until thoroughly blended.
  3. Set up your ice cream maker and turn it on. Pour the yogurt mixture into the bowl, following your equipment’s instructions.
  4. After 10 minutes, slowly pour (almost like a drizzle) the 1/8 cup honey into the spout.
  5. Allow the ice cream to churn for another 10-15 minutes. Transfer to a freezer-safe container with lid and put in the freezer for at least 3 hours. I like ‘resting’ our frozen yogurt for at least 24 hours to get the best flavor. I don’t know why, but after a day of waiting it tastes so much better.

Note: You can also use fresh peach slices, although I wouldn’t know how many cups you would need. I’ll have to measure it in cups next time.

    Mango or raspberry would be good. However, I thinking hazelnut with a dash of Frangelico would be fantastic. Okay a glug of Frangelico!!

    SITC hasn’t opened yet here in Australia and I’m dying to see it. I have only read good reviews about it.

    I am new to your blog but have already saved a bunch of your recipes in my desktop recipe file. This sounds wonderful. I am looking for some lighter things to make in my new ice cream maker. I also reallly LOVE the fact that you make your recipes available in pdf format.

    Thanks,

    Manggy — Wow, really? I end up with semi-soft ice cream with our machine. What did you use? Hahaha…you made me laugh so hard! :p

    Nicole — Great suggestions! I’ll have to look for Manila mangoes if I do use mangoes, as I’m so picky with them. I’ve been meaning to try adding alcohol in ice cream/frozen yogurt, maybe I’ll get over than ‘fear’ soon. [I’m afraid it won’t freeze because alcohol doesn’t freeze.]

    Trish — You are so welcome. I’m glad you’re finding recipes you can use. That’s really nice to hear. :) Thanks for leaving feedback. I was thinking of ditching the PDF versions!

    Tony — Thank you for your wonderful words. Keep coming back. Just get something to eat after. Haha.

    Maxine — Aw, I’m sure you feel like beating me up when I post these ice cream recipes. LOL. It really is worth it to get one. We got ours as a gift. :)

    brilynn — Yay! Since we got this machine, we’ve never paid for store-bought ice cream again. It’s addicting to make stuff.

    My Sweet & Saucy — Thank you!

    Kendra — I’m adding all your suggestions to my list! Thanks!

    Farida — Thanks! Aw, I feel so bad! We’re looking for ways to help out our deprived readers with that. Watch out. :-D

    Lori — Thanks. Passion fruit, guava…I haven’t thought of that. :) I’ll add it to the list. Now I’m getting hungry.
