Nectarine frozen yogurt ~ who can resist?

Nectarines are the most incredible fruits. Peaches get all the summertime glory but I think nectarines actually have a better texture and more interesting flavor.

One taste of this nectarine frozen yogurt reminds me why I bought my ice cream maker.

You simply can’t, or don’t, get this bright, ‘real’, intense flavor from commercial products, no matter how much you pay. There’s something about the juxtaposition of the creamy ice cream with tart fresh fruit flavor that just floors me every time. I’m hoping to work my way through all the summer fruits by the end of the season, I can’t wait.

This is a super healthy recipe. I didn’t cook the fruit or add any sweetener, so you just get the flavor of fresh summer nectarines in a lowfat frozen Greek yogurt. This way there’s no shame, even if you polish off the whole batch.

If you want it sweeter, add a little honey or sugar to the mix. Just taste the mixture before you put it in the machine.

Nectarine Frozen Yogurt

Author Sue Moran

Ingredients

  • 1 lb sliced nectarines you can peel them if you want to, I left the skins on
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 cup 2% Greek yogurt you can also use full fat for a creamier frozen yogurt

Instructions

  • Puree the nectarines and the lemon juice in a food processor. If you left the skins on, you will need to strain the puree. I used a mesh strainer. You should have 2 cups of puree.
  • Mix the nectarines with the yogurt. Chill the mixture.
  • Process in your ice cream machine according to its directions. In mine this only took 15 minutes.
  • Eat right away while it is soft, or freeze for a firmer consistency.

notes and variations

This frozen yogurt is best eaten eaten within a couple of hours of being made. It will get hard if left longer in the freezer. If you don't have an ice cream machine you can also spoon the yogurt mixture into popsicle molds and freeze them that way.

    VERY TART!
    I had great hope for this recipe but the Plain Greek Yogurt flavor was over-bearing compared to the Frozen Yogurt I am used to. I used the regular fat Greek yogurt option versus 2%. I also used 4 perfectly ripe nectarines but the froyo was too tart, needing sugar or something. The mixture mixed well in my ice cream maker but the flavor was not something anybody in my family chose to eat.

      Sorry this didn’t work for you Jeff, I think different yogurts can vary a lot in their tartness. You could definitely add some sugar or honey next time!

    DELISH! Beautiful natural and simple desert/breakfast/snack. Although the colour of mine was not as stunning, the flavour was lovely, not too sweet but yum. Great way to use leftover nectarines from the garden. I had mine with muesli and some stewed nectarine. Very nice!
