Frozen Peach Yogurt

So refreshing and so simple to make you can let the youngsters help. Be sure that the prepared peaches are frozen solid and the yogurt mixture is well chilled. It can be eaten as soon as it's made, but flavour will develop if placed in a freezer for an hour or more. Best served within 24 hours.
