Ginger Peach Frozen Yogurt

Where does the time go- it’s already mid August!  It hasn’t felt like August here in Atlanta.  We’ve had, what feels like, rain for a month and temperatures have barely skirted 90. (Yes, I’m grateful!!)  So it may not be sweltering, but it’s still the perfect time of the year for Ginger Peach Frozen Yogurt.  This was my first attempt at frozen yogurt so I went to my go-to ice cream book – The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz, to get an idea of quantities to use.  Lo and behold, he had a peach frozen yogurt recipe.  All I had to do was add the ginger – and what an addition!  Love that ginger and peach zing!!
