Seriously Delicious Peach Melba Frozen Yogurt

Sharing is caring!

I feel like the famous dish, peach Melba, is not as commonly known here in the U.S. as it is in other parts of the world. But it totally should be! The colors and flavors are impeccable. And while this recipe is not the classic dish, it was inspired by it. And it is the perfect recipe to make if you want a frozen yogurt recipe without and ice cream maker. So please do yourself a favor and try this Seriously Delicious Peach Melba Frozen Yogurt today.

This recipe was inspired by a fellow food blogger named Gemma. Her recipe can be found on her website Gemma’s Bigger Bolder Baking.

A Brief History of Peach Melba

Peach Melba is a classic and popular dessert in Australia. Although according to accounts, it did not originate in Australia. It actually originated back in the late 1800’s in London at the Savoy Hotel.

The peach and raspberry dessert was created by French chef Auguste Escoffier who worked at the Savoy Hotel. He named it after a famous opera singer at the time named Nellie Melba, who frequented Escoffier’s restaurant often.

The original, iconic peach Melba recipe consists of quick-poached peaches in a sugar syrup, drizzled with a raspberry sauce over vanilla ice cream. See, simple, right? There’s more to the history which you can read on the Nosey Chef’s webpage and check out a recipe for classic Peach Melba while you’re there.

Now let’s make this easy frozen yogurt recipe!

Nutritional Benefits

There are only a few ingredients in this peach Melba frozen yogurt recipe, but they pack a mighty nutritional punch. I’ll quickly break down the two key nutritional benefits for you.

Fruit Consumption and Health

Fruit of course! We all know that eating fruit is good for you. And for the most part, it’s fairly easy to incorporate into most diets because fruit is naturally sweet, as it contains natural sugar, called fructose.

The recommended daily intake of fruit for most adults is 1.5 to 2 cups per day (1). This can be achieved using fresh, canned, or frozen fruits.

When buying frozen fruit, remember to avoid ones with added sugars. Too much added sugars in your diet are associated with an increased risk of heart disease (2). Plus most of us already consume more than is recommended.

Fish Oil for Heart Health

Fish oil and the omega-3 fatty acids that they contain (DHA and EPA) have been the subject of many research articles over the years. And the science has concluded that fish has many health benefits including reduction in cardiovascular disease by lowering triglyceride levels and overall mortality.

Additionally, fish oil helps in the maintenance of brain and neurological function, reducing inflammation, and has antiarrhythmic and anti-platelet properties (3).

Most global health organizations agree that consuming 250-500 mg of combine DHA and EPA daily is adequate for obtaining these health benefits (4).

Ingredients Needed

Frozen Peaches– since we are going to be freezing this recipe once we put it through the food processor, it make sense to use already frozen peaches. However, if peaches are in season and you are looking for a good peach recipe to use some up, I’d recommend washing, slicing, and freezing your peaches ahead of time.

Frozen Raspberries– again using frozen raspberries is more efficient and will cut off some of the time needed for your frozen yogurt to completely set in the freezer. Less time waiting means the quicker you can enjoy your froyo!

Barlean’s Seriously Delicious Mango Peach Smoothie Fish Oil + Vitamin D3– while classic peach Melba does not contain any fish oil, this frozen yogurt version does. My aim was to create a recipe that I could incorporate this supplement into without a beat.

Keep in mind, I would not recommend adding any other fish oil to this recipe. The Barlean’s company has a line of “Seriously Delicious” omega-3 products that are made with a special emulsification process. And other natural ingredients are added to make them taste oh so creamy and delicious. They come in a variety of fruity flavors including key lime pie, mango peach, passion pineapple, lemon creme, and pina colada.

And they are IFOS third-party certified, which means their products meet strict quality, safety, and purity standards (2).

Lemon Juice– the lemon juice adds flavor and brightness to the frozen yogurt, along with some added vitamin C!

Maple Syrup– you do need something to sweeten your peach Melba frozen yogurt. Without a little sweetener, it would be too tart. So here, I chose to use pure maple syrup. All you’ll need is about 2 tablespoon for the peach mixture and another 2 tablespoons for the raspberry mixture.

Yogurt– you can use whole milk Greek yogurt if you like. Here, I chose a dairy-free coconut milk yogurt. It did not have a strong coconut flavor so the flavors of the peach and raspberry still outshined all the other ingredients.

How To Make Peach Melba Frozen Yogurt

  1. The first thing you want to do is get out your food processor.
  2. Make the two flavors of frozen yogurt separately. It doesn’t matter which one you start with. However when you’re done making the first one, make sure to set it aside in the freezer. This is to prevent it from melting while you’re making the other flavor.
  3. Once both the peach and raspberry frozen yogurt mixtures are made, alternate plopping spoonfuls of each flavor into your freezer safe dish.
  4. Freeze the mixture in your freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  5. Once you’re ready to eat it, let it sit out on the counter for about 15 minutes to allow it to soften slightly.
  6. Scoop into bowl and enjoy your beautiful and delicious frozen treat!

FAQ

Can I omit the fish oil supplement in this recipe?

Yes. I added some Barlean’s Seriously Delicious Fish Oil + Vitamin D3 to add even more health benefitting nutrients. But you can completely omit this ingredient if you wish and it will still taste wonderful.

Where can I buy Barlean’s Seriously Delicious Fish Oil?

To purchase Barlean’s products of your own, visit the Barleans website, the Barleans Amazon store, or try your local health food store.

Can I make frozen yogurt with regular yogurt?

You can, however depending on which type of yogurt you choose, it may change the consistency of the final product. I find that a yogurt with a higher fat content works well, such as full fat Greek yogurts. This is because they are much thicker and contain less water content therefore creating less ice crystals as it freezes.

Can I make frozen yogurt with an ice cream maker?

You certainly can. For this recipe however you would need to make the flavors separately then try combining afterwards. So unless you have two ice cream makers lying around, it’s much quicker to whip up using a food processor.

Equipment

  • 1 Food Processor or Blender
  • 1 freezer safe bowl or dish I used a 7.25'' wide x 5.5'' deep x 1.75'' high glass Pyrex dish

Ingredients
  

For the Peach Frozen Yogurt

  • ½ cup frozen peaches
  • ½ 5.3 oz cup vanilla coconutmilk yogurt So Delicious brand
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp Barlean's Mango Peach Smoothie Seriously Delicious Fish Oil + Vitamin D

For the Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

  • ½ cup frozen raspberries
  • ½ 5.3 oz cup vanilla coconutmilk yogurt So Delicious brand
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup

Instructions
 

  • First make the peach frozen yogurt by adding all the peach frozen yogurt ingredients into your food processor and process until smooth. You may need to stop and scrape down the ingredients a few times. And you can add a little more lemon juice or maple syrup to help thin it out.
  • Transfer peach mixture to a seperate bowl and place in the freezer for now.
  • After quickly rinsing out the food processor, make the raspberry frozen yogurt by adding all the raspberry frozen yogurt ingredients and repeating the process from step 1.
  • Take out peach frozen yogurt from freezer and begin placing alternating globs of peach and raspberry frozen yogurt into your freezer safe bowl of dish. I like to have visible pretty globs of orange and red.
  • Cover and freeze for at least 4 hours.
  • When ready to serve, let thaw slightly for about 15 minutes so it's easy to scoop.

Notes

Additional Suggestions:
  • If you do not want to use or don’t have the Barlean’s fish oil supplement, you can make this recipe without. 
  • The fruit mixture is going to be very thick when mixing in your food processor. Scrape the sides of your processor between mixing to get a smooth consistency.
  • You can also add a small amount or either lemon juice or maple syrup as needed to thin it.
