These interesting times call for creative date ideas . Social distancing has “the Mr.” and I on our toes trying to find new, fun ways to be intentional about quality time.
This past weekend I treated him to an outdoor froyo picnic on our balcony and made this yummy No Churn Peach Frozen Yoghurt.
What is the best yogurt to use?
Any yogurt can be used. I prefer whole milk yogurt for the fat content; this will help avoid that pesky ice crystallization. Giving you a nice creamy, scoopable treat.
Can you just freeze yogurt to make frozen yogurt?
Technically you can, but you won’t get the texture you’re looking for. It’ll just be a frozen cube, not creamy, and who wants that?
Fresh Peaches vs. Frozen Peaches?
Nothing beats fresh fruit. However, when making frozen yogurt, you’ll need to use at least lightly frozen fruit. You can freeze your fresh Peaches for an hour or two before you start this recipe to achieve the same results while using your favorite sweet fresh fruit.
How to make no church frozen yogurt?
The trick with no churn frozen desserts is you need heavy fat content to avoid ice crystallization. Staring with ingredients like heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk and rich and creamy yogurt all help to avoid that problem.
Since peaches are in season I used peach yogurt and made a peach puree to to flavor the froyo but you can use any fruit you like. I started by cooking down my frozen peaches with vanilla, cinnamon and salt and then blitzing the mix into a chunky puree.
In a separate chilled bowl I stirred the yogurt and sweetened condensed milk. . In a third bowl I beat the heavy cream with a hand mixer until I reached stiff peaks. Then I added the whip an and yogurt mixture together.
The final task is layering the puree and the creamy base on top of each other in a loaf pan until you run out. I then wrapped the pan with plastic wrap and stuck it in the freezer overnight.
And when you wake up you will have perfect froyo waiting on you. While this is not an endorsement for frozen yogurt for breakfast, I can’t say that I’m opposed to the idea. However, for us, it served as the perfect quarantine date treat.
