Apricot-Pecan and Peach Melba Frozen Yogurt

Several years ago I wrote a post about making your own homemade apricot syrup. I’ve updated it a few times since, but it remains my most popular post ever. I guess there are lots of us who love the tangy flavor of apricots poured over our pancakes. And homemade syrup has a true fruit taste, unlike the “apricot-flavored” corn syrup concoction available on grocery store shelves.

Sometimes though, we get a little carried away making apricot and other fruit syrups, I know I certainly do. If you have jars of syrup from last year (or the year before!) gathering dust in the pantry, it’s time to turn it into frozen yogurt.

Apricot Syrup Frozen Yogurt
Easy frozen yogurt is a great way to use up last year's homemade fruit syrups.
Serves: 6-12
  • 2 cups chopped ripe apricots
  • 2 cups plain yogurt (not non-fat)
  • ½ - 1½ cups apricot or other fruit syrup (to taste)
  • ½ cup chopped nuts or candied ginger (optional)
  1. Puree apricots, yogurt, and fruit syrup in a blender or food processor, using as much syrup as you like. Less syrup will give you a tart and tangy yogurt, more syrup will result in a sweeter yogurt.
  2. Refrigerate mixture until completely cold.
  3. Spoon mixture into ice-cream maker following manufacturers directions. Or, spoon mixture into individual paper cups. Partially freeze, then insert a wooden stick in each. Continue until mixture has frozen. Remove paper cups for frozen yogurt pops/

Frozen yogurt is super easy to make, especially if you have an ice-cream maker.

This recipe is fun to do with the kids as it has so few steps. It’s also a great way to be creative. As you can see in the photo above, I added chopped pecans to the apricot yogurt, but candied ginger would be great too. I also made a batch of Peach Melba Frozen Yogurt using fresh peaches and raspberry-peach syrup.
