As you may have noticed, I’ve been slowly going through many of my older posts on the blog and turning them into cleaner recipes – meaning they contain no refined sugarsOpens in a new tab. or refined flours.  (For more info on how to start eating clean for beginners, click hereOpens in a new tab.!)

While many of my older recipes are super tasty and made from scratch, they just don’t jive with a healthy lifestyleOpens in a new tab. (unless we’re talkin’ about cheat daysOpens in a new tab.…).

One of those older goodies is my fresh peach ice cream recipe.

Since peaches are in season around hereOpens in a new tab. (and so, so very yummy!), I wanted to turn my peach ice cream recipe into a clean ice cream.

But, I also LOVE how delicious my 4 ingredient strawberry frozen yogurtOpens in a new tab. turned out so I really wanted to learn how to make peach frozen yogurt.

Arg…decisions!  Make a clean ice cream or frozen yogurt?

Ultimately, I decided to create a brand new fresh peach frozen yogurt recipe because it was just too dang good once I tested it out for myself. I also started thinking about the nutritional value of frozen yogurt vs. ice cream.

Is Frozen Yogurt Healthy?

Is frozen yogurt better than ice cream? The reality is there are several types of ice creams and frozen yogurts, so if you want to eat more healthy, first pay attention to the actual ingredients and how the ice cream or frozen yogurt is made. When choosing between store-bought ice cream and frozen yogurt, check the labels of what you buy for added sugars and preservatives.

The best is to go for homemade ice cream or frozen yogurt, which can have a much higher nutritional value (like THIS peach frozen yogurt recipe). But, like most things in life, moderation is key. Eating smaller portions and avoiding unhealthy toppings is equally important to remember. Instead, add toppings like fresh peaches, bananas, strawberries, and blueberries to add color and flavor.

What makes this recipe so much healthier than other options is that it uses unsweetened greek yogurt and fresh peaches and just a touch of raw honey.  All the ingredients are unprocessed and full of nutrients, fiber, and/or protein, making this frozen yogurt recipe way better for you than your typical ice cream.

What Are the Ingredients in Frozen Yogurt with Peaches?

This peach frozen yogurt recipe only needs 4 ingredients – yep FOUR!  It’s unreal. If you have the following:

  1. peaches
  2. raw honey
  3. plain Greek yogurt, and
  4. lemon juice

…then, you’re good to GO. It’s that simple.

I also love how I can make this frozen yogurt without an ice cream makerOpens in a new tab. – yes, ice cream makers are awesome…but so are food processorsOpens in a new tab. – plus it’s super quick!

At this point, you may be wondering, “Can you freeze regular yogurt?” or “Can you freeze Greek yogurt?” Well, the answer is yes, both regular and Greek yogurt can safely be frozen.

Doing so will make the yogurt last for up to 3 months. Plus, the health benefits will remain the same. The only thing to consider is freezing yogurt for more than a month may change its texture, giving it a slightly watered down consistency.  I find it best to allow the frozen yogurt to slightly thaw for about 5 minutes and then stirring it up to regain the creamy texture of frozen yogurt.

How to Make Frozen Yogurt

Making your own frozen yogurt is very easy to do and you don’t even need an ice cream maker to do it.  Follow these easy steps for how to make frozen yogurt:

  1. Place the sliced and pitted peaches on a cookie sheetOpens in a new tab. lined with parchment paper. Make sure the peaches are separated and not touching each other or it will make them difficult to work with later. (You can also use pre-frozen peaches if you have them!)
  2. Place the peach slices into the freezer and freeze for at least 2-3 hours.
  3. Add the frozen peaches to the food processorOpens in a new tab. and process until they become evenly crumbly, but not pureed.
  4. Add in the raw honey, plain greek yogurt, and freshly squeezed lemon juice into the food processorOpens in a new tab., and process again until a smooth, creamy consistency appears, about 2-4 minutes. You many need to scrape down the sides once or twice along the way. (If you don’t have a food processorOpens in a new tab., you could use a heavy duty kitchen blender.Opens in a new tab.)
  5. Once everything is smooth, taste for sweetness, and add additional honey as needed.
  6. You can serve immediately or transfer to air-tight container and freeze for a couple hours for a harder consistency.

If you don’t have a food processor, you can blend all the ingredients together in a kitchen blender, then place into the freezer to freeze until mostly solid in an airtight, freezer-safe container.  You could also add the blended mixture to an ice cream maker, if that is preferred.

    This was really easy to make. Has anyone made this into popsicles? The texture after freezing it for a bit changed and it put me in mind of a popsicle.

  4. I dont know if it’s just me. I made this recipe and the result is great but what attracted me to it is that beautiful hue of a peachy color mine just has a chantilly cream color to it .How did you get that peachy color.

  7. hello!! This recipe looks great and i would love to make it asap but i am confused about the cup measurements. How many grams would 2/3 of a cup of yogurt be?? Thank you!!
