When my parents lived in South Carolina, my mom and I went to a u-pick-it peach orchard and brought home a large basket of warm, golden peaches picked at their peak. It was a day heavy with humidity, with temperatures well into the 90's. My entire body drooped in the heat, and I couldn't imagine what possessed my mom to want to do this. I may have grumbled a bit.
But once I bit into one of those beauties, I got it. Those peaches, freshly picked at their juicy, sweet peak, were the best I've ever had. And no other peach has ever come close since then.
This is a great way to make your next batch of ice cream without first making a custard. Start with a carton of yogurt! Another frozen yogurt I made this was was this plum frozen yogurt with blackberries. Both of these desserts are perfect for any summer BBQ.

🧅 Main Ingredients + Notes
The secret to faster and easier meals often lies in the ingredients. For example, store-bought items and ingredients you make ahead and store in the refrigerator (or freezer) can turn a 60-minute recipe into a 30-minutes meal or less.
For the all of the ingredients, measurements and directions, go to the Recipe Card at the bottom of this post.
- Fresh peaches - since the peaches are pitted, peeled and then roasted, this recipe is easiest with freestone or cling-free peaches. This means that the fruit doesn't adhere to the pit, making it super easy to remove without cutting the peaches up.
- Honey - I prefer to use raw, unfiltered honey, and in this recipe, a darker honey enhances the caramelized flavors of the roasted peaches.
- Non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt - you can also use low-fat or full-fat yogurt if you prefer that.

👩🍳 Preparation Tips
- Cool the peaches before adding them to the yogurt. It's not crucial, but it helps the frozen yogurt to set up faster.
- If you like some chunks of roasted peaches in your frozen yogurt, add only two peaches before pureeing. Once the peaches are well mixed in, cut the third peach into chunks and add to the processor. Whirl only a few times.
- Do not use regular yogurt - it must be Greek yogurt. Regular yogurt is too thin to make a satisfying frozen yogurt with some body.
💡Ideas for Possible Variations
- Eliminate the nutmeg and cinnamon for a cleaner peach flavor, or swap the nutmeg for cardamom.
- Use low-fat or full-fat Greek yogurt in place of the non-fat Greek yogurt.
Non-Fat Peach Frozen Yogurt with Honey
- Turn on the broiler and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Slice the peaches in half, remove their pits, and peel them. Arrange the peach halves cut side up on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle a ½ teaspoon of the honey over each peach half, and sprinkle a little nutmeg and cinnamon on top. Slide the peaches under the broiler until they start to caramelize on top, about 3 minutes. Flip the peaches over and slide them back under the broiler for another minute. The peaches will be very soft and be lightly caramelized.
- Place the entire container of vanilla Greek yogurt into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade or high speed blender. Add the roasted peaches, salt and remaining honey.Blitz the food processor or blender like crazy until the peaches are completely mixed into the yogurt. If you prefer some chunks of peaches in your frozen yogurt, add the third peach after the first two are completely mixed in and just pulse the processor a few times.
- Transfer the peach yogurt mixture to a bowl and place in the freezer for 2 hours to completely chill.
- Remove from the freezer and transfer the mixture to the bowl of an electric ice cream maker. Process according to the directions of your ice cream maker. Return to the freezer until ready to serve.
- Before serving, let the frozen yogurt sit on the counter for 15 minutes to soften, if needed.
