This is delicious on a very hot day.  I served it for a ladies lunch with a seafood quiche the first time I made it when it was first published.  Since then I have made it just to have it in the refrig and have served it with "whatever"!!  I too changed to plain yogurt and have since eliminated the honey.  The peach flavor alone is sweet enough.

This is wonderful...a great use for overripe peaches. I left the skins on to preserve the nutrients, and I believe the color and flavor were more intense as a result. After pureeing I couldn't tell they were in there. I also used nonfat plain yogurt, as the soup is plenty sweet on its own; next time I may even omit the honey. I served this alongside Kohlrabi and Greens Pie for a light supper.
