If you have some peaches in your kitchen slightly past their prime, try this Fresh Peach Frozen Yogurt.  If you don’t have any Amaretto in the house, no worries. It will still be completely delicious if you substitute almond extract!

Have you ever tried making your own frozen yogurt?

It tastes so good at the frozen yogurt shop. How do they make it taste so good? I’m suspicious.

Ever since I’ve been making Greek yogurt at home, I’ve been on the hunt for a good yogurt ice cream recipe. Up to now, most of them were a disappointment–as in a weird texture.  After several experiments, I’ve found a combination I like.

Why you should try Homemade Peach Frozen Yogurt with Amaretto:

#1

The peaches are fresh–never cooked.

While cooked-down peaches may have a more intense flavor, freshness is more important in ice cream. At least that’s the way I see taste it.

#2

Make homemade Greek yogurt or buy it.

You can also strain regular yogurt until you have Greek yogurt which is thicker.

Amaretto prevents rock-hard ice cream

If you want to know more about this, David Lebovitz writes a good article entitled Tips For Making Homemade Ice Cream Softer.

If your frozen yogurt is too hard to dip the next day, a few seconds in the microwave or a few minutes on the counter will remedy the problem.

Do I need an ice cream freezer?

My favorite ice cream freezer is a Donvier hand-crank freezer.  It’s easy, doesn’t take up much freezer space, and is portable (non-electric).  It is small, but perfect for a smaller family without too many leftovers.

Nevertheless, this recipe will work in any 2-quart ice cream freezer. If you need more recipes, be sure to try my Coffee Ice Cream, Fresh Blackberry Ice Cream with Chocolate Shards, or Creme Fraiche Ice Cream Recip with Nutella Chunks.

  1. Just wonderful….
    Super tempting

  2. TheKitchenWitch says:

    To my complete shame, I haven’t used my ice cream maker once this summer. This recipe looks like the perfect excuse to dust it off. Amaretto and peaches are such a great combination!

  3. This looks so good! Love that there is Amaretto in it and you know, you can never have too much of that 🙂

  4. The Café Sucré Farine says:

    Yum, yum, yum,Paula! You’ve outdone yourself once again! This looks simply incredible!

  5. What would be a good substitute for the Amaretto if you can’t have alcohol?

    1. Taz, Great question. Add a little more almond extract if you want more almond flavor. However, the primary purpose of the Amaretto is to keep the frozen yogurt from getting rock hard the next day. Leave it out if you don’t have it or prefer not to use it. I completely understand.

  6. Looks tasty, frozen yogurt is always tasty and homemade makes it even better especially since I know you used your own homemade yogurt. Have a great weekend Paula 🙂

  7. mushroom recipes says:

    Recipe easy steps easier than many articles under the prescription experience and thank you for the post

  8. I’d like to make a special request to try some this coming holiday weekend, please! 🙂

  9. Amish Stories says:

    I had peach ice cream one time at a dairy thats very close to me, i liked it. Even though fall is around the bend does not mean you can not eat ice cream, ill even have some during the winter. Richard from the Amish community of Lebanon,pa.

  10. Betty @ scrambled hen fruit says:

    I have a new ice cream maker that I’ve neglected this summer. I still haven’t tried making my own yogurt, but I have plenty in my refrigerator- all I need are some juicy ripe peaches and I’ll be set. This looks so good! 🙂
