Notes










Tips

Expert Tips

Try substituting peach ice cream for the frozen yogurt and walnuts for the pecans.

The frozen yogurt needs to be just soft enough so you can scoop and spread it; soften it by placing in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes. If you let it stand at room temperature, it will become too soft on the outside and too firm on the inside.

Enhance the ginger flavor by sprinkling the peaches with chopped crystallized ginger just before serving.
