just peachy. [giveaway]

if you know me even a tiny bit, you know that vanilla bean ice cream is my favorite food and peaches are my favorite fruit.  when the two are paired together, it’s like heaven on earth.

i love this combo so much, in fact, that i chose to serve vanilla bean ice cream with diced peaches as the dessert at my wedding.  sure, there was wedding cake, but to me.. it’s all about the ice cream!

Wedding Photography In Utah


after our wedding (it’s almost been a year!) we had a whole bunch of ice cream and peaches left over.. and hardly any cake. i guess some people don’t have their priorities straight and don’t realize that it is all about the ice cream. psh.

we divvied out the 3 gallon drums of vanilla bean ice cream to various family members.. but after all was said and done, marshall and i ended up with quite a bit of ice cream and a few bags of diced peaches.

what do you think we did? what any rational couple would do. we made peach milkshakes each and every night until the ice cream was gone.

here it is.. almost peach season. (oh, and for the record, it is always ice cream season).  marshall and i were talking about our peach milkshake addiction the other night. he told me, “babe.. i don’t think we can drink peach milkshakes every night this summer. we have been working too hard.”

he’s right. we have both been working really hard at eating healthy and working out regularly. i suppose a peach milkshake every single night would be a tad detrimental to our progress.  but i just LOVE peaches so much. i had to find a healthy alternative to get my peachy frozen fix.

and then.. in the night.. it came to me. yes, i dream about dessert. don’t you?

yogurt! chobani! ice cream maker! peaches!

before i knew it, my new summer addiction was born.


peachy keen vanilla bean fro CHO.

makes four servings



  • 2 (6 oz) containers of peach chobani greek yogurt
  • 1 cup (8 oz) plain 0% chobani greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) fat free half & half (or other milk of choice)
  • 1 T agave (or other sweetener of choice)
  • 1 t vanilla bean paste (can sub 1 vanilla bean or 1 t pure vanilla extract)
  • 1 fresh peach, diced (for garnish)


in a small bowl, combine peach and plain yogurts.


add half & half, agave and vanilla bean paste.

mix well.


pour mixture into an ice cream maker.


turn the ice cream maker on and let run for about 20 minutes or until frozen yogurt is firm.


divide into four equal servings and garnish with a quarter of the fresh peach slices.


vanilla bean specks get me every time.


freeze any leftover fro CHO you may have.  word on the street is if you add a splash of vodka to homemade ice cream and frozen yogurt, it freezes better. i personally would not know.

nutrition information per serving (one fourth of recipe):


love the protein content! you can thank chobani for that one.

pie chart break down.. it’s fat free and fabulous:


this is a summer treat that i could get used to.



now for the fun! you all know i adore chobani.


i talk about them more than a teenage girl talks about her high school crush. what can i say? it’s good yogurt. not only that, it’s a solid company with awesome folks (or should i say CHOlks?) behind it.

their slogan is “nothing but good” and i can honestly say they live by these words. NOTHING. BUT. GOOD.


i was so happy to finally meet emily over the weekend—one of the lovely ladies behind chobani.


we go through a lot of chobani at our house. not only is it delicious, but marshall swears chobani has helped with his tum troubles. that’s why i buy 43 containers at a time..


chobani is all natural, packed with protein and comes in sixteen different flavors! it’s hard to pick a favorite. i can’t. i won’t.

but you may have to.

TWO lucky winners will receive a custom case of chobani.  yep, you pick your flavors. lucky.

the reason for this special giveaway? well, this week, i have been picked to be chobani’s featured blogger! i feel like the most popular kid in class. check out chobani’s site for great recipes using their yogurt, past featured bloggers and other snippets about the many adventures of chobani. you will also find useful information like this handy conversion chart:

Last time I had some was in a blueberry, raspberry, strawberry smoothie before I went on vacation.

Adrienne Harth July 1, 2011 at 7:43 am

I eat Chobani everyday for lunch at work. I’m trying to get into wedding dress shape and have lost 4 pounds already with Chobani for lunch and hitting the gym after work. The best part is that I don’t feel like i’m dieting, I’m just choosing better, and tasty, options!

Karen July 1, 2011 at 7:55 am

Oh goodness, I love it! I actually used Chobani to make a loaf of banana bread, which I’ve been eating for breakfast all week. YUM!

monica July 1, 2011 at 9:07 am

I like chobani! I eat plain straight up, nothing else added….but its like a side dish with main meal. But my fave way of eating this chobani, I add diced really fine cucumbers, black pepper, and teeny bit salt……yummmmm!!! :)

the last time I had yogurt, it was Chobani, just a few days ago! I crush up a crunchy granola bar (Nature Valley or the like), pour it on, and mix it up! I love having a little crunch in there. :)

Bria @ West of Persia July 3, 2011 at 2:16 pm

I ate yogurt last week at a Yoga weekend. They were sampling out different flavors. I preferred the plain with some blueberries on the bottom. Yum! Sadly, it wasn’t Chobani being sampled, but I dig Chobani a lot. Good stuff.

Laura July 3, 2011 at 5:34 pm

I just ate some for breakfast with a little granola on top!! mmm..yummy!

Israel July 3, 2011 at 8:30 pm

I’m a huge fan of yogurt and granola together, especially mixed with some fresh summer fruit! Yum! :)

Becky July 4, 2011 at 7:56 pm

This yogurt is GREAT! I especially like to use the plain as sour cream on potatoes or any mexican dish.

Amy July 4, 2011 at 11:28 pm

Last time I had yogurt? Greek, frozen berries, and a ton of cereal..

Amy July 4, 2011 at 11:29 pm

Whitney July 5, 2011 at 6:40 am

I had yogurt for breakfast with cheerios and blueberries. :)

Nicky July 5, 2011 at 11:27 am

Hey! The Chobani was supposed to be mine. But,since my 6 kids discovered the stash in the back of the fridge I can’t keep it stocked. if it’s in there it’s gone. At least I can take comfort knowing it’s good for them.

jessica marinaccio July 5, 2011 at 1:24 pm

i just had some yogurt about 5 min ago – Chobani is my fav but i try to leave it for my Visually impaired daughter – she wont eat anything but chobani or pureed something – i figure the chobani has everything she needs in it and she loves it and we just can’t keep it in the house. I wish i could keep it in the house – between me and her – she eats 4 a day ( big expenses )

jessica marinaccio July 5, 2011 at 1:24 pm

followed on twitter

jessica marinaccio July 5, 2011 at 1:26 pm

like chobani on FB

Christina July 5, 2011 at 1:37 pm

I love CHO! I actually just used some to make bluberry banana bread on Sunday! Love the way it came out, it was dense and divine.

Christina July 5, 2011 at 1:38 pm
Holly July 5, 2011 at 6:48 pm

I LOVE this recipe & cannot wait to try it in my new ice cream maker!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 (I have the same one as you :) )
& OMG- that is SO funny about Marshall & the Chobani– it’s the SAME with me. It’s the only yogurt that I can eat because of the Crohn’s disease. I think it’s because of how it’s strained.
SO good. We always have about 20 containers in the house at all times. :) chobani is a tummy saver ;)
