Summertime Gingery Peach Float

Ginger Peach Float in a blue rimmed glass with a straw.

Got peaches? Got ginger? Whip up a batch of Ginger Peach Frozen Yogurt, then top it off with peach juice and sparkling water for a delicious summertime treat~a Gingery Peach Float!

Inspired by these…

and this…

I decided to do a twist on a summertime favorite, the ice cream float for this month’s Recipe ReDux, “Beverages”.

To “healthify” it a little, I swapped out the ice cream for homemade frozen yogurt {complete with good buggies for your GI tract}, and subbed in sparkling water and juice for the usual soda.

The result?

A  seriously delicious and refreshing treat for a hot summertime day!

Here’s my concoction…

Ingredients

GINGER PEACH FROZEN YOGURT

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup whole milk yogurt , unsweetened use low fat yogurt if desired
  • 1/2 cup fresh ginger thinly sliced
  • 4 whole fresh peaches pitted, skinned and cut into chunks
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • Pinch salt

GINGER PEACH FLOAT

  • 2 scoops Ginger Peach Frozen Yogurt {above}
  • 1/2 cup peach juice
  • 1/2 cup sparkling water i.e. Ayala Ginger Lemon Peel Sparkling Water

Instructions

  • To make the frozen yogurt: Combine the milk and sliced ginger in a saucepan and heat until almost boiling, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes. Pour milk and ginger over strainer in to a blender.
  • Add the yogurt, chopped peaches, sugar, and pinch of salt to the blender and combine until smooth.
  • Place mixture in refrigerator until cool.
  • Follow manual per ice cream maker instructions. I used a Cuisinart Ice -20 and after 20 minutes, my frozen yogurt was soft serve consistency. I transferred it to the freezer for 2hours for a firmer consistency for the float.
  • To make the float: Scoop ice cream in to glass and top with peach juice and sparkling water.
