I love waffles. I love having them for breakfast, for dessert, and sometimes for #breakfastfordinner. I love the versatility in the recipe. I can add oats, fruit pieces, chocolate chips, etc. in the batter. I can use milk, coconut milk and/or other liquids for mixing in the batter. And of course, I can go crazy with toppings: sprinkling, drizzling, and more. So I got very excited when I set to make this peach yogurt waffle recipe. It’s finally stone fruit season, and peach is, of course, one of my favorite fruits.
What made this waffle recipe even more luxurious is the addition of Alove peach aloe vera yogurt in the waffle batter. I usually either use a waffle mix and just add liquid, or make a basic waffle batter from 1 c plain flour, 1 egg, 2 tbsp oil, 3/4 c + 2 tbsp milk, 2 tsp baking powder, and a pinch of sugar and salt. The former is much easier, and given the variety of ready-made waffle mixes (paleo, whole wheat, various flavors, etc.), it really is a fantastic option of making semi-homemade waffles. This time I used a buttermilk waffle mix, which just calls for 1 c of the mix, 1 c milk or water, and 1 tbsp oil. Instead of using milk, I mixed one 6 oz container of Alove peach aloe vera yogurt, with just enough water to make 1 c of liquid. I also added diced peaches in the batter. The result? A delicious, crunchy on the outside, and fluffy on the inside waffle, packed full of peach flavors. The Alove yogurt gave it extra flavor, texture, as well as creaminess and moisture in the waffle. You can definitely make a big batch of it, as it freezes well, and can be popped in the toaster to warm up when serving.
