From EatingWell.com -- Use chopped frozen peaches, or you can substitute frozen berries or whatever frozen fruit you have on hand in this ultra-quick frozen yogurt that is made without an ice cream maker.
- 16 ounces frozen peaches (about 3 1/2 cups)
- 1⁄2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1⁄2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
- 2 -3 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt (OPTIONAL ~ if frozen fruit mixture needs thinning during processing, or sub 2-3 tblsp. juice)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Combine peaches and sugar in a food processor; pulse until coarsely chopped.
- Combine yogurt and lemon juice in a measuring cup; with the machine on, gradually pour the mixture through the feed tube.
- Process until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides once or twice. Add 2-3 tablespoons additional yogurt, fruit juice, or water if your frozen fruit mixture needs thinning during processing!
- Serve immediately, or place in serving dishes and store in the freezer for 30-45 minutes, for a firmer texture!
Amazing flavor. I made just one serving as I'm the only one here enjoys yogurt and used one large ripe, juicy, glorious red peach. I did need to about triple the amount of yogurt ask for yogurt for it to blend. I used vanilla yogurt. I have some strawberries in the fridge that are going into the freezer as soon as I finish this post. They are destined for the same elegant fate as the peach. Most certainly a keeper recipe!
We don't get frozen peaches so I bought a 1K jar of peaches which I drained well and froze on a baking paper lined tray in a single layer and as I got 21 ounces of frozen peaches I upped the ingredients according accept the confectioners sugar which I decreased to 1/4 cup as I think the fruit is quite sweet enough and I also used a vanilla yoghurt and the result was 4 cups of luscious tasting dessert and 3 of us polished of half of it in one sitting and for a guilt free dessert I served it with Diet Chocolate Sauce, thank you Kerfuffle-Upon-Winkle for such a lovely dessert, make for Rookies tag game.
You cannot go wrong with this. I used dried honey instead of sugar and rather less of it. Also I threw in a couple of frozen boysenberries which added a pretty purple-pink hue to the whole thing. Instead of yogurt, I used kefir that had stood for a few days and was quite thick. I also put in a couple of shakes of turmeric prior to processing - you cannot taste it, but it does add some antioxidant value. Very enjoyable.
