Peach Frozen Yogurt...

Ahh-the ever-quest for the satisfying indulgent that is also good for you. Although, if something were good for you, would it even be considered in the indulgent category? It’s a bit of an oxymoron one could argue, a contradiction in fact. I’ll leave that to you, and while nothing should be consumed with abandon, this treat could and should be consumed without thought to “Well….I really shouldn’t…”
You need a special tool for this…yes, yes I know—not another tool! But this tool is so worthy of precious real-estate in one's kitchen. This is what I have, and I love it, zero complaints (tip: buy the second freezer bowl--you will want it to make enough for parties). It has so many uses for frozen yummies—all for healthy alternatives to ones that we buy at the store that are something we need to say "Well….I really shouldn’t…”
This frozen yogurt is creamy and smooth, rich and tangy-with a perfect balance of tart-sweet.

So here it is. Peach Frozen Yogurt. Its truly—yogurt that is frozen! It's really that simple We all know the health components of yogurt, and of peaches. Buttermilk is low fat, has calcium and Vit. D and adds to the ‘richness’ of this yogurt without using cream.
Here is how I do it:
  • 2 cups fresh peaches (large chopped with skins, they go into a blender)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (or use 1/3 cup agave syrup or honey)
Place these two ingredients in a blender, and pulse to puree. Do not puree until smooth, leave it very chunky and rough—it takes just a few pulses. Remove puree to a large bowl.
  • One half of a 32-ounce tub of plain yogurt
  • 1.5 cups of buttermilk
Stir together until combined. Pour into your ice cream freezer tub and place in freezer unit and turn on.
In 20-minutes of magic you have soft serve peach frozen yogurt! You can eat it right away, or transfer to another container and place it in the freezer for about 4-hours and it will become scoopable.

Fun notes:
  • Put it between GF gingersnap cookies for a fantastic ice cream sandwich!
  • Put it into popsicle molds and they make the most fantastic yogurt pops!
