Peach yogurt gelato

This recipe is incredibly tasty, and so easy to make! In fact, you don’t have to cook anything!

3 cups sliced peaches
1 cup almond syrup
2 cups yogurt

Slice 3 nice fresh peaches. In an electric blender put the yogurt, 1 cup of orzata or Italian almond syrup, and the sliced peaches. Blend for just a couple of seconds. Then make the yogurt gelato using your ice cream machine! A nice serving idea is to put a dollop over a peach or apricot ciambella or Italian doughnut.

Almonds pair exceptionally well with the flavor of peaches or apricots. The reason is simple. Have you ever seen an almond tree or the fruit from where almonds are extracted? Maybe you’ve seen the nut-like thing that you can find inside the pit of an apricot or peach – or maybe you’ve heard of apricot kernels… Well, almonds, peaches and apricots are extremely closely related because they are all part of the same botanical family. But in the case of almonds we want to eat the nut, which is not really a nut, and in the case of apricots and peaches we want to eat the fruit.

Look for orzata and ciambelle in your local Italian store.
