I love peaches and am always a little sad when peach season comes to an end. Really to me that and the kids going back to school are the true signs of summer ending.
Peach Frozen Yogurt (adapted from Tales From a Kitchen Misfit)
- 1-1/2 lbs ripe peaches
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 cups plain whole milk yogurt
- a few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2 cup of sugar
Peel peaches, slice them in half, and remove the pits. Cut the peaches into chunks and cook them with the water in a medium saucepan over medium heat, covered, stirring occasionally, until soft and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in the sugar, then chill in the refrigerator.
When the peach mixture is cool, puree in a food processor with the yogurt until almost smooth but slightly chunky. Mix in a few drops of lemon juice.
Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacture’s instruction. Eat immediately or chill for a few hours if you want it to be harder.
