Georgia Peach Frozen Yogurt

20130418-DSC_0634

It’s hard to believe that peach season is already coming to a close here in Georgia. There’s a reason this state is known for our peaches! A lot of states grow delicious peaches (I admit that South Carolina peaches are amazing), but in my very biased opinion Georgia peaches are the best. They’re so juicy, with just the right balance of sweetness and tartness. I’ve bought a million of them already this summer and have eaten them in many different ways. This happens to be one of them!

I wanted to use the last of the wonderful package that Chobani sent me to make something special. Freezing greek yogurt makes for such a creamy, delicious treat–and when you add fresh fruit it’s even better. Juicy Georgia peaches were just the thing to take this recipe to the next level. I also added a little fat to my mixture in the form of half-and-half because I like my frozen yogurt to be like ice cream, but you can certainly substitute that with milk and still have a great frozen yogurt. The recipe couldn’t be more simple! Just four ingredients.

Ingredients
  • 2 c. 2% greek yogurt
  • ½ c. half and half
  • ⅓ c. sugar
  • ⅔ c. diced fresh peaches
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, stir together the half and half and sugar. Set aside to allow the sugar to dissolve.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the greek yogurt and the dissolved sugar mixture.
  4. Pour the yogurt mixture into your ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers instructions.
  5. When the mixture is fresh out of the ice cream maker, pour the diced and pureed peaches into the frozen yogurt, then use a spatula to fold the peaches into the yogurt. When the peaches are swirled in, smooth the frozen yogurt into a freezer proof container and freeze until firm.

I hope you’ve gotten your share of peaches in this season! I plan to go hoard some more this weekend, perhaps even freeze some and can some for the winter. In the meantime, I have to go take care of another bowl of this stuff.

I am having some challenges redirecting my old RSS feed though, but hopefully I can resolve that today so that those subscribed through Bloglovin’ and Feedly still get my posts. Thanks for your patience! I’m doing all this techy stuff myself so I’m bound to run into snags.

    My family actually got the chance to finally drive through Georgia and pick up some fresh peaches from the roadside stands! They really are some of the best around. So juicy and sweet! This frozen yogurt is the epitome of a great summer treat :)

    This looks beyond fantastic! I love frozen yogurt and fresh summer peaches. I’ve never tried Georgia peaches, but we get really tasty ones in Spain… I’m curious to know if they look anything like ours mmm.
    Great recipe anyway! x

    Love the new blog Lauren! The froyo looks good too. Too bad I can’t find good Georgia peaches at my local grocery stores :(
