Do I have a treat for you fine folks, today! After the success of the delicious Frozen Yogurt & Almond Butter Bites, I’ve been meaning to try out a new version. With peaches in season here in sunny Southern Ontario, I wanted to take advantage of the juicy stone fruit that tastes so amazing in the late summer time and use them for this new frosty, snack option.
Someone else taking advantage of the late summer sunshine:)
Louis, acting like the royal baby 🙂
Using peaches seemed like a perfect fit to make a popular treat totally different with a fruity element. I also made this version a vegan one by trying out a ‘new-to-me’ product.
Coconut Milk Yogurt!
Coconut and peach seemed like a nice pairing so off I went …
I started by peeling and dicing two large peaches. I tossed them into the food processor with a touch of sugar, sea salt and vanilla. I let this buzz around for a minute or two, scraping the sides once or twice, until a nice puree was formed. Then, I added in the coconut milk yogurt and buzzed again to mix it all together.
Now, if you recall from my earlier post, when I made the almond butter version, I had a small-ish disaster with the piping bag.
Cue the Jaws theme … dundun … dundun … dundun …
Dare I try again? Being adventurous, I did give the old bag one more go … lol …
Not too shabby. I wasn’t attempting the ‘picture perfect’ rosettes, I was simply looking to make uniform, round disks and I think I achieved that goal.
After a half hour in the freezer to set, peel them off the parchment paper (you will have to work rather quickly as they will start to melt a tad) and store them in a re-sealable baggie for easy, peasy snacking.
If I were super corny, and I am, I would even say these were … peachy! groooooaaaannnnn … Sorry, had to do it:)
