When it comes to wedding registries, there’s no doubt in my mind the bride gets the better deal. I was able to outfit my kitchen with new Wusthof knives, Staub coquettes, a Tiffany blue KitchenAid mixer, copper beverage tub, marble pastry board, fancy espresso maker, the list goes on. The hubs, on the other hand, got a camping lantern, a Washington Redskins apron and a 1-year National Parks Pass. Womp womp.
I can see Rob not being delighted about a 20-pound cast iron pot but I was a little disappointed he didn’t share my excitement about the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment when it arrived. Space is definitely an issue now that we’re living in a city apartment so I get that the massive bowl occupying prime real estate in the freezer probably seemed a bit ridiculous. But it makes ice cream for Pete’s sake!
I knew there were only so many weeks the bowl could sit in the freezer before Rob yanked it out and stuck it in the unreachable cabinet next to the juicer we rarely use these days, so last weekend I pressed it into action. Ladies, let me just tell you the hubs is now completely gone on the ice cream maker. And I have this Peach Frozen Yogurt to thank.
Two peaches, a bit of sugar, lemon juice and Greek yogurt – that’s all. It’s basically summertime in a bowl and completely guilt-free.
Oh, and in case you haven’t looked at your food holiday calendar yet today, it’s Peach Ice Cream Day (!!!) so grab some fresh peaches and bust out those ice cream makers tonight. You can thank me tomorrow.
DIY ice cream makers – what favorite flavors do you whip up at home?
Add peaches, lemon juice and sugar to food processor or blender and process until liquefied. Stir peach mixture into Greek yogurt and add to ice cream maker per machine instructions. Tip: make sure it’s churning when you add the yogurt mixture. Yogurt should be frozen after 15 minutes or so. Enjoy immediately or freeze for 1 hour if you prefer a slightly harder frozen yogurt.
I love this post! Would you link up with us sometime at Motivation Monday?
LOVE It!!! There is something about homemade ice cream, it’s amazing.
This is awesome! I’m going to try strawberry flavour tomorrow, perfect timing as I live in Scotland and we’re actually getting a bit of sunshine right now for once! A x
We’re definitely coming out for the peach & yogurt ice
Oh my gosh this is beautiful! We got an ice cream maker for wedding too and I’ve not had many successes thus far so I’m excited to try this!!
I’m going home and putting my ice cream bowl in the freezer! I got an ice cream maker a few Christmases ago and only used it once, but this recipe sounds so delicious, it must come out of hiding!
Yeah, you could pretty much wear wellies all year round here haha. We have a heat wave this week however, making workouts twice as exhausting :p Not used to it. Have a lovely weekend when the time comes!
Hi, from a new follower :) I love your blog! Great info and recipes. This ice cream looks delicious and so simple (my kind of food!) Think I’ll try this out at the weekend if the sun stays out here in Scotland. Yummy!
Welcome, and thanks! Love Scotland, especially getting to wear Wellies everywhere! San Francisco is notoriously foggy and cool in the summer too – hoping we both get a sunny weekend!
SO making this!
I was in the same boat when we were registering for our wedding. I basically did all of the choosing online instead of going to the store and I didn’t consult M much. Lets just say we returned quite a few things because we ran out of space and simply didn’t need them. I think its all of the stuff you imagine making (which you never really will) when you are making that magic list that gets bought without your own money!
Yum! This makes me want to buy an ice cream maker
I’m beyond excited to register for our wedding. My fiance on the otherhand…he asked if my mom could go with me instead!!! On the other hand, he reaps the benefits of all the meals you’ll make with these cool gadgets, so it’s a win win….or so I tell him!
This sounds way too easy for as delicious and fancy it looks. I have a Kitchen Aid, but no ice cream attachment………
That needs to change. Immediately.
this looks so delicious! My bf and I would love to make ice cream one day, we just need to find a machine. It’s on our food bucket list. Yes, we have one!
Every good foodie has a food bucket list, whether they know it or not. Sourdough bread baking is on mine!
summer peaches are like candy right now! do you think this would work with coconut milk yogurt?
I’ve never tried coconut milk yogurt – is it thick like Greek or more like regular? If it’s similar to regular yogurt, you could always add a plant-based thickener like pectin to give it a thicker, creamier consistency.
How does it hold up in the freezer? I find a lot of lower fat bases get icy in the freezer and aren’t as appetizing if not finished in one sitting.
It doesn’t get icy but it definitely freezes completely solid if left for more than 1-2 hours in the freezer. I’ve heard adding a splash of vodka prevents this from happening (thank you David Lebovitz) but I found letting it defrost on the counter for 15-20 minutes (say, while you eat dinner) also does the trick!
My boyfriend makes ice cream regularly with the ice cream maker I got him for his birthday a few years ago. He comes up with lots of great stuff, but I really like his cinnamon flavor. I’ve also made a delicious kiwi sorbet with it. Mmm.
Yum, cinnamon! Do you know what flavor base he uses – vanilla maybe?
Yeah, I think so. He usually starts with a very simple ice cream base recipe (one without eggs since that is common allergy in his family) and goes from there. I’m sure a vanilla base would work well. I especially love that since cinnamon is a nice strong flavor you feel really satisfied with just a little scoop.
I asked last night, he does use a vanilla base. Enjoy.
Amazing! Favorite fruit and yogurt combo! This is happening this weekend!
that is summer bliss right there!
