Frozen Peaches and Cream is an easy, healthy, and novel dessert to keep you cool this summer. Freezing and grating frozen fruits is one of the best viral hacks I’ve seen lately. (Thanks to Frankie Gaw, @littlefatboyfrankie, who started the “shaved ice” trend online this summer.) Fruit-based shaved ice has been a cultural staple of many countries, including Japan, Mexico, and the Philippines, to name a few.

My version is a fun twist on the classic “peaches and cream” dessert combo: mix your favorite yogurt with a bit of vanilla bean paste and honey for a lightly-sweetened, creamy base. You can also add a bit of protein powder, if you like. Freeze a fresh, clean peach, and use a sharp zester grater to shave the peach. The result is the freshest peach “shaved ice” you’ve ever tasted. Enjoy as is or top with seeds, nuts, fresh mint, or any topping you like.

If you make a version of a shaved ice fruit dessert in your culture, please share in the comments!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients 

  • 1 whole fresh peach
  • 1 cup plain yogurt, any you like
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon honey, plus more for drizzling

Instructions 

  • Place the peach in a sandwich bag and freeze it for at least a few hours or overnight, until solidly frozen.
  • Note: Let the peach thaw for a few minutes before grating it and assembling the recipe.
  • Add the yogurt to a bowl and mix in the vanilla and honey.
  • Using a zester or microplane grater, grate the frozen peach on top of the yogurt. This will take a few minutes and your hands may get cold. Have patience!
  • Drizzle on some extra honey and enjoy! You can also add nuts/seeds/granola or any other toppings of choice.

Notes

Use any plain yogurt of choice. You can also add a bit of protein powder (I recommend vanilla), and stir it into the yogurt. 
Most fruit will work here, such as peaches, strawberries, pineapple, and mango! With pineapple, trim off the peel and cut the fruit into large chunks, then freeze, and grate. 
Additional toppings, such as granola, nuts, seeds, and nut butters, are all optional. 
This dessert is meant to be enjoyed right away as the frozen peaches will melt into the yogurt.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
