If you have extra peaches (or somewhat disappointing peaches, or even store-bought frozen peaches), and if you love sorbet, then this is the recipe for you.

 

Peach Lassi Sorbet
From Bon Appetit

Yield: 4 servings

  • 4 cups peaches, peeled, chopped, and frozen (about 4 medium peaches)
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons vodka
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup honey

 

  1. Process all the ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth.  (I recommend using a food processor unless you have a powerful blender.)
  2. Pour peach mixture into a loaf pan or plastic container and press a sheet of parchment paper on top, pressing directly onto surface.
  3. Freeze until sorbet is firm, about 6 hours.
  4. Scoop into bowls to serve.
  5. Sorbet can be made 3 days ahead and stored in freezer.  If necessary, thaw in refrigerator for up to 30 minutes before serving.

These are tasty and lemony, simple to make, and somewhat reminiscent of creme brulee.  Also, they require no modifications to be gluten free!
