Creamy Greek-style yogurt and canned peaches, blended together with sugar, fresh lemon juice and a touch of bourbon make a wonderful frozen treat everyone will enjoy! Especially my mother.
My mom is on my subscribers list so she gets every new post by email. (Hi, Mom!) She doesn’t comment here on the blog much but she sends me her thoughts by return email and those often include the request that I make the recipe for her next time we are together. Or some additional family history is that is pertinent to my story. I love that this space is a place we can connect, even when I live so far away. And, because she is subscribed to the feed from other blogs as well, sometimes she shares those posts with me, which brings to mind a quote from Nobel laureate, François Mauriac:
“’Tell me what you read and I'll tell you who you are’ is true enough, but I'd know you better if you told me what you reread.”
In this new day and age, I’d change that to say, “I'd know you better if you told me what you share.”
I’ve gotten to know my mother better from what she shares. And she has made it amply clear that peach is her favorite fruit. Also, she adores thick Greek yogurt. So, for Sunday Supper’s Mother’s Day event, I decided to create a frozen peach yogurt in her honor. It’s creamy, it’s peachy and I know she’d love it. And I’ll be making it again next month when we are together again! (You don’t even need to ask, Mom. Happy Mother’s Day! I love you!)
Note: The bourbon flavor is extremely subtle but the alcohol does help the frozen yogurt stay creamy.
1 large can (29 oz or 825g, drained weight 16.9 oz or 480g) peach halves in light syrup
2 1/2 cups or 625g plain whole milk Greek yogurt
1/2 cup or 100g sugar
1/4 cup or 60ml fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons bourbon
Drain the peaches well and discard the light syrup. (Or use it to sweeten iced tea!)
Put the chopped peaches, yogurt, sugar, lemon juice and bourbon in a food processor or blender and purée till the peaches are in tiny, tiny pieces.
Slice the reserved peaches.
Pour the creamy mixture into a bowl or plastic container and chill it in the refrigerator or freezer until very cold but still pourable.
Scrape it into your ice cream maker and follow manufacturer’s instructions.
Put the frozen yogurt in a freezer friendly sealable container and stir in a little more than half of the sliced peaches.
Top the mixture with the rest of the sliced peaches and put the container in the freezer.
Remove from the freezer about 10 minutes before you are ready to serve.
Once it has thawed slightly, scoop into bowls or pretty glasses to serve.
