Peach & Vanilla Frozen Greek Yogurt with Lemon Zest

This peach frozen greek yogurt has been lightened up while still maintaining that creamy, scoopable consistency we know and love. The flavors from the peaches and dusting of lemon zest are refreshing and tangy. Just throw your ingredients into the blender, then using an ice cream machine, churn some frozen greek yogurt goodness!

  • Method: Freezing
  • Cuisine: American



1/2 cup sugar

1 cup whole milk

1 cup heavy cream

1 - 5.3 oz container of 0% fat vanilla greek yogurt

2 medium whole peaches, pitted and roughly chopped

zest from one medium lemon (about 2 loosely packed teaspoons)

Optional toppings: Fresh peach slices and lemon zest


  1. Prepare your ice cream machine the night before by freezing your bowl according to the instructions.
  2. Place sugar, whole milk, heavy cream, vanilla greek yogurt, roughly chopped peaches, and lemon zest into a blender and blend for 30-45 seconds. Ensure that the sugar has completely dissolved. Place blended peach and yogurt mixture in a covered bowl and chill overnight.
  3. Prepare your ice cream according to the machine instructions. After running the peach greek yogurt mixture through the ice cream machine, transfer your frozen dessert to a freezer safe bowl and let sit in the freezer for 2-3 hours to harden. Enjoy this recipe within 7 days - it is not like store bought ice cream and gets harder and more icy overtime. Thaw out on the counter to soften before serving if needed.
  4. Optional toppings: Peach slices and lemon zest


  • It is recommended you do steps 1 and 2 at the same time the night before.
  • I used Siggi's 0% vanilla greek yogurt for this recipe. If using another type of greek yogurt, note there could be a change in the frozen greek yogurt consistency or texture.
  • If the fresh peaches are really juicy while chopping, pat them dry to eliminate excess juice. The extra juice could increase the ice crystals and slushy texture when freezing.
