Low-Sugar Fresh Peach Frozen Yogurt
Fresh Peach Frozen Yogurt is a treat everyone will enjoy and I use sugar-free peach jam and an approved sweetener to make it lower in carbs! Use full-fat or fat-free Greek yogurt, whichever you prefer.
Food blogging is different from ordinary cooking in an important way, because if you cook something amazing but you don’t have photos that make it look good, you can’t share that recipe on your blog. When I set out to record the deliciousness of this Low-Sugar Fresh Peach Frozen Yogurt, the first time I overestimated the recipe and the ice cream freezer overflowed, and the second time I accidentally deleted the process photos before I saved them on my computer.
The third time was the charm though, and now I have a bunch of little containers of this frozen yogurt in the freezer, in a size that guarantees portion control! I got my peaches from the fabulous Trina whose cranberry salsa recipe has been so popular, and I heard over the weekend from a reliable source that fresh peaches are still abundant, so I hope you’ll try this before they’re gone for the year.
And even though fresh peaches do have some carbs of course, with the sweetener I used and sugar-free peach ham, I was pleasantly surprised to find this was lower in carbs than I had thought it would be. And if you have lots of fresh peaches, see tips below for making this peach frozen yogurt without using the sugar-free peach preserves.
What ingredients do you need for this recipe?
(This is only a list of ingredients; please scroll down for complete printable recipe. Or if you use the JUMP TO RECIPE link at the top of the page, it will take you directly to the complete recipe.)
- peeled and diced fresh peaches
- sugar-free peach jam
- Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link)
- Greek Yogurt
What sugar-free preserves did I use for the Peach Frozen yogurt?
I used Smuckers Sugar-Free Peach Preserves (affiliate link) to bump up the flavor in the frozen yogurt. Use any sugar-free peach jam (or apricot jam) you can find, but try to get one with some fiber, which will reduce the net carbs.
What sweetener did I use for the Peach Frozen Yogurt?
Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) or Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) would be my first choice for this recipe. But use any no-calorie granulated sweetener you prefer if you don’t have Monkfruit.
What Ice Cream Freezer Did I Use?
I used a Cuisinart 1-1/2-Quart Ice Cream Maker (affiliate link) to make this peach frozen yogurt. You may need to adapt the recipe if you’re using a different size or make of ice cream freezer.
Tips for making Low-Sugar Fresh Peach Frozen Yogurt:
(This is only a summary of the steps for the recipe; please scroll down for complete printable recipe. Or if you use the JUMP TO RECIPE link at the top of the page, it will take you directly to the complete recipe.)
- I used two cups of peeled and diced peaches and 1/2 cup Smuckers Sugar-Free Peach Preserves (affiliate link)
- If you don’t want to use the sugar-free peach or apricot preserves, or have a lot of peaches but no jam, chop up one more cup of peaches, puree them with 1/4 cup sweetener, then put them in a small pan and simmer until the mixture is reduced to 1/2 cup. Let this cool well before you add it to the rest of the ingredients.
- Puree the peaches in the food processor until they’re quite smooth. (I made a chunky version one time, but I liked the smooth yogurt best.)
- After you’ve pureed the 2 cups of peaches, add Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) or sweetener of your choice, sugar-free peach preserves or the mixture you cooked down from above, and Greek Yogurt.
- Puree until it’s well combined.
- Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. I used the Cuisinart 1-1/2-Quart Ice Cream Maker (affiliate link), and you need an ice cream freezer that’s at least 1 1/2 quarts for the quantities in this recipe.

- Low Sugar Strawberry Frozen Yogurt from Kalyn’s Kitchen
- 2 cups of peeled and diced fresh peaches
- 1/2 cup sugar-free peach (or apricot preserves)
- 1/2 cup Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (see notes)
- 2 cups Greek Yogurt (see notes)
- For the ice cream maker I have, the container must be well-frozen before you mix the ice cream. Follow instructions for the model you have.
- Peel the peaches, remove pits, and cut into smallish chunks. (If your peaches are hard to peel, you can dip them into a pan of boiling water for a few seconds, but the peels came right off on the peaches I had.)
- Put peaches into food processor fitted with a steel blade and process until they are pureed.
- Add sugar-free peach or apricot preserves, Golden Monkfruit Sweetener or sweetener of your choice, and Greek Yogurt and process just until the mixture is fully combined. (See below if you want to replace the apricot preserves with more peaches)
- Put the container into the ice cream maker and sit the scraper blade in place.
- Put lid on and pour the peach-yogurt mixture in with the motor running.
- Let the yogurt freeze with the blade running for 25-35 minutes. (I left it freezing for 35 minutes this time.)
- If you don’t eat all the frozen yogurt right away it can be frozen to eat later, but allow about 20-30 minutes at room temperature for the yogurt to soften after it comes out of the freezer, or you can also microwave it for about a minute or two on medium-low.
I used a Cuisinart 1-1/2-Quart Ice Cream Maker (affiliate link) to make this frozen yogurt. You may need to adapt the recipe if you’re using a different size or make of ice cream freezer.
I'd definitely use Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) for this recipe, but use any sweetener of your choice. I originally made this with sugar-free apricot preserves, but now you can find many brands of low-sugar peach or apricot preserves (affiliate link). Use fat-free or full-fat yogurt, whichever you prefer.
If you don’t want to use the sugar-free preserves, or you just have a lot of peaches to use you can make your own peach preserve mixture. Peel and dice one cup of peaches; then puree it with 1/4 cup Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) or sweetener of your choice. Put the mixture in a small pan and simmer on very low heat, stirring often, until the mixture thickens and reduces to 1/2 cup. Let this cool very well before you add it to the other ingredients.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Peach frozen yogurt could never be completely sugar-free due to the natural sugar in the peaches. However, when you use an approved sweetener and sugar-free preserves, I would eat this Low-Sugar Fresh Peach Frozen Yogurt in small amounts for Phase 2 or 3 of the original South Beach Diet. It’s definitely much lower in carbs than traditional peach frozen yogurt, but peaches don’t have as much fiber as strawberries, so my Low-Sugar Strawberry Frozen Yogurt is lower in carbs .
