good things come

Had I waited – instead of consuming all of yesterdays beautiful peaches in two particularly juicy and gluttonous sittings – I could have taken advantage of this simple yet ever so clever ice box recipe that arrived in my email today, courtesy of the kitchn:  last minute ice cream.  It sounds like an ideal way to use the last of the season’s fruit to whip up – quite literally – a cool treat to beat the summer heat.  I’ve got peaches on the brain right now but consider strawberries, blueberries or raspberries – all of which are now at their peak.

Last Minute Ice Cream – makes 3 cups, about 6 servings

Combine 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt, 1 cup ripe peaches, 1 tablespoon heavy cream, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla in a food processor, or by hand.  Spoon into serving cups and place in the freezer for up to 30 minutes. Serve with garnish of your choice.
