Homemade Perfect Peach Yogurt for Kids! Flavored yogurt- Homemade style!

Remember me bragging about how we’ll get through a whole box of peaches before they had a chance to go bad? They haven’t spoiled yet, but we’re getting awfully close.  They are super soft, and my poor 7th grader tried to bring a peach to school yesterday.  Poor kid ended up with a  backpack full of peach guts!  I didn’t know he took one, or I would have warned him.

So, this morning, we made some peach yogurt.  If you want to make your own plain yogurt, great. I actually have two huge cartons of yogurt right now. One, Greek Style plain yogurt (Chobani), and another plain store brand regular yogurt.  Here is how we made it:

  • 4 peaches, pitted and peeled (we didn’t even need a knife to do this because they are so soft.)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon water

In a saucepan, put all peaches, minus the pits and peels.  Add the lemon juice and honey.  Stir over medium heat until peaches begin to break down.  After about 5 minutes, pour peaches in a blender and puree.  Return to warm sauce pan.  In separate tiny bowl, combine the corn starch and water.  Add the corn starch/water to the pureed peaches, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let sit for a few minutes, until slightly cooled, but not solidified.

At this point you can add the peach puree to yogurt. Because of the corn starch, you can make fun decorations on your yogurt.  If you are going to mix it all together right away, skip the corn starch and just mix in the yogurt after the peaches have cooled.

For the patterns on top, I used a cookie cutter and placed it on top of the yogurt.  I then spooned out some peach puree into the cookie cutter and let it set up.  For a person who has very little artistic talent (like me) this is super easy!

Another reason this works for kids, is we like to use plain yogurt and add fruit to it, but not all kids like yogurt with fruity chunks.  This is a great compromise.

Chop them up and freeze them for smoothies! Otherwise too-ripe fruit is perfect for smoothies. I freeze a lot of cantaloupe.

Delish! We froze 3 boxes (!) of Colorado peaches a few weeks ago. So great in smoothies, sauces, and desserts – especially in the middle of winter when we’re craving some of that freshness. I’m definitely going to give this sauce a try. Maybe my kids will go for my homemade yogurt a bit more if I add it.

Thank you for this and especially for the link to homemade yogurt. I am going to try this tonight. My daughter constantly wants yogurt and I do not like all the added junk in the store bought ones she tends to pick out. I think if I let her help make this and put some of her favorite fruits in it she will love it!! Thanks again!

How long will the peach puree last in the fridge? or can you mix it into a big batch of homemade yogurt all at once? And how long would that last? My son and picky husband love peach yogurt and I hate all the additives in the store bought junk, so this would be great!

Hey Amy,

This looks divine. My son loves flavored yogurt. Do you think I could try the same with strawberries and raspberries?
