Peach Frozen Yogurt

Before peach season is over (sadness!) I wanted to share this recipe for peach frozen yogurt with you, but not before I tell you my tale of woe on how it came about.

I wanted to take something special over to my dad's house for Sunday supper last weekend, and I knew if I made a pie, I would still need to make ice cream. (You cannot have pie without ice cream!) In either case, I had the peaches, but needed needed cream.

I adore Homestead Creamery milk and cream. I haven't seen the cream around lately, but the sign is still out on the Kroger shelf, so I hadn't given up hope that one day I'd catch it. Not this time, however. There was no big brand organic cream available either, so I stopped a manager, who thought that the HC cream might have been discontinued. NOOO! (I am planning on calling the HC to see what is up- will let you know what I find out.)

Anyway, I will admit to not being willing to buy regular heavy cream, so I headed to another store. (I never do that, but I was feeling kind of compulsive about my ice cream idea.) Alas, there was no organic cream at Martin's that day either! So, my eye wandered to the yogurt, and I decided to try my hand at frozen yogurt.

So here you go- it went well, though I think that maybe I could have used a tad more Pernod. Swap Pernod with vanilla, or almond- or nothing. Straight up peach- yum!
But oh, lovely grocery stores, please bring back the cream!

Peach Frozen Yogurt

  • 5 peaches, peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped (I used a mix of yellow and white)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 TBS Pernod
Bring to a simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until peaches are soft.
  • 1/2 Cup honey
  • pinch of salt
Let cool.
  • blend with 1 cup of whole milk yogurt
Freeze in ice cream maker.


  1. This sounds so good! My Agriberry CSA share this week includes 24 (!) peaches. Sounds so good, but I will need to hussle to get them stored (or eaten!). Thanks, Erin!

    ps - I saw the Homestead cream at the Willow Lawn Kroger this weekend, maybe some hope!?

  2. Oh, thank goodness! I will stock up on peaches again this weekend- a crisp is in order I think. Maybe peach butter as well?

  3. Hey, A man from Homestead Creamy was at the Kroger near Regency this past Sunday! He had samples of everything and said he was a friend of the family who lives in town. I'd swear he had cream! I should have asked about your ongoing cream issue...
