For ice cream! Warning, this recipe is GOOD! Last week my husband abruptly told me that he was cutting chocolate from his diet. After the initial panic set in (does this mean I have to be the supportive spouse and do the same?!) I decided that it's probably for the best for both of us to forgo snack bite sizes here and there and opt for a healthy sweet treat. I also assumed life would return to normal in a couple days... here we are, a week later and he hasn't had any chocolate. The same cannot be said for me.
All of this leads me to this week's Tasty Tuesday recipe, Peach Frozen yogurt. Fortunately this was the perfect recipe to try out this week as I recently bought some peaches that were turning bad pretty quick. The hardest thing about this recipe was waiting for it to freeze, which wouldn't be a problem if you used frozen peaches instead of fresh.
I'm excited to try this recipe using a variation of fruit, think I'll do strawberries next as I also bought a lot of those during my last trip to the store. Does anyone else tend to overbuy fruit and veggies this time of year? Everything is SO fresh it's hard to pass up.
1 (16 ounce) bag frozen solid peaches or 4 cups fresh peaches
3 tablespoons agave nectar or honey (I used honey)
1/2 cup plain yogurt (non-fat or whole)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Add the peaches, agave nectar (or honey), yogurt and lemon juice to the bowl of a food processor. Process until creamy, about 5 minutes, or less if using fresh peaches.
Serve the frozen yogurt immediately or transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the freezer for up to one month. Kudos to you if you're able to not eat this all in one serving. I had to freeze the yogurt for a couple hours since I used fresh peaches. If you prefer a more sweet frozen yogurt add additional agave nectar or honey.
