Fresh Peach Greek Frozen Yogurt {Recipe}

I have been soaking up peach season and stocking up on fresh South Carolina peaches weekly.

My favorite way to eat peaches is peel, slice and enjoy them plain (I’m not a peach fuzz lover…I need that off my peach before eating it!) But I also love to get creative with them…grilled peaches with ice cream, peach cobbler, peach crisp, peach cake, peach carrot bread, peach sauce for chicken or pork…there’s so much to do with them!

One thing I haven’t done with my peaches yet is make ice cream. I have the ice cream maker attachment for my KitchenAid Mixer but haven’t used it in years. I decided it was time to change that and used some peaches that were on their last leg to make fresh peach frozen yogurt with Greek yogurt.

The recipe features just four ingredients…peaches, plain Greek yogurt, cane sugar and lemon juice. You can also add a shot of vodka to the mix if you want your frozen yogurt to stay a little softer in the freezer.

The first step is to puree all the ingredients together in a blender or food processor. I used my Vitamix. I would like to take a second to encourage you to use fresh peaches if possible for this recipe and 2% or full-fat yogurt. You really need that creaminess for the frozen yogurt and you don’t get it from the fat free stuff.

And then freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker. Since it had been so long since I broke out my ice cream attachment, I totally forgot that the bowl had to freeze for 15 hours. I was a little heartbroken to have to wait another day once I had my mind set that I was going to have fresh frozen yogurt!

The result is creamy, tangy peach frozen yogurt that you can store in your freezer in an airtight container to enjoy on these hot summer days. It’s softest right out of the ice cream maker so after it’s frozen give it some time to soften a bit before serving.

    Oh I love this recipe! We have an ice cream maker and leave the part that needs to be frozen in the freezer always JUST so we can have ice cream when we get a craving (though I always need half and half and heavy cream-which I never have~) I love the creaminess of the texture and just knowing that it’s homemade adds a little something special! Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    Jen thanks for the tip of vodka in the mix. I made frozen yogurt when I was on vacation a few weeks ago and had to pull it out of the freezer because of ice crystals!
    Nothing tastes as good as homemade! Thanks for sharing!

    You had me at “peach” – I’ve never tried making frozen yogurt or ice cream but this looks divine. I could use a bowl right now :)

    That sounds delicious. Do you think you can do this with lime? I have a lime tree in my yard and would like to make a Lime Frozen Yogurt.
