I can’t believe I’ve gone all summer without sharing a frozen yogurt or ice cream recipe with you! What is wrong with me?! I’ve certainly eaten my share (and probably 10 other people’s shares) of frozen yogurt and ice cream. I actually haven’t even been making it very often on my own. I have a good reason though, we found a cute and delicious little ice cream place called Inside Scoop Creamery. This ice cream shop makes all of their own ice cream right there at the store and they have 24 different flavors! I practically have a panic attack trying to decide which flavor(s) to pick. I love that they have the classic flavors like cookie dough, coffee, and cookies and cream, but then they have more creative ones like strawberry basil, honey lavender, and malted milk ball. Don’t even get me started on how good their waffle cones are! Ugh, just talking about it makes me want to get in my car and go get some. Anyways let’s get back on track. I’ve finally got my act together and am so excited to share this delicious recipe for Honey Peach Frozen Yogurt!
Peaches are the main fruit being eaten around the house these days. They are at the peak of their season here in Colorado and they taste incredible. The Palisade peaches that are grown here in Colorado are better than any peaches I ever ate in Arizona and I am completely in love with them. I find myself making special trips to Whole Foods just so I can buy a few. I’ve been hoarding them from my husband and hiding them in the back of the fruit drawer in hopes that he won’t find them. However, today he went with me to Whole Foods and wanted some, so I suppose I’ll have to share now, dangit! I’m definitely stingy when it comes to sharing good fruit. The only other food I don’t like to share is my ice cream or frozen yogurt. So imagine how I was when I made this Honey Peach Frozen Yogurt, back off everyone, get your own bowl!
Not only does this frozen yogurt have a peach in the base of the yogurt, but I also sautéed some in a frying pan with a little bit of butter, honey, and cinnamon, then mixed them into the base after they had cooled. Adding those sweet little chunks of cinnamon honey buttered peaches into the frozen yogurt made it taste just like peach pie! I can’t even imagine how amazing a scoop or two of this frozen yogurt would be with a slice of peach pie.
Honey is the only sweetener in this frozen yogurt and it pairs perfectly with the peaches. I knew I wanted to use honey after I had paired it with my Grilled Apricots with Almond Whipped Cream and Honey. Honey and stone fruit were made for each other! Something magical happens when you grill, roast, or sauté fruit with a little bit of butter and honey, if you haven’t tried it add it to your list. So, before the most magical time of the year, peach season, is over, get out those ice cream makers and make this Honey Peach Frozen Yogurt!
