Fresh peaches can be found overflowing at farmers markets and fruit stands. This delicious summer fruit is hitting its peak right now. We recently hit up a local place selling fresh veggies and fruit like blackberries, blueberries, and peaches from their orchard. I left just brimming with ideas and a bucket of peaches and blueberries. The first recipe I decided to try was peach ice cream. It is super simple recipe similar to my pumpkin spice ice cream from these pumpkin spice pecan ice cream sandwiches. Like I said no eggs or heating needed. Churning is not necessary either unless you are impatient like me and use the ice cream maker to get it done faster.
Make the Peach Puree
You will need about 5-6 peaches. Slice them and peel them. Throw the sliced peaches in the blender with a half cup or more of sugar and process them until they are smooth. If your peaches aren’t too tart then use less sugar. This is up to you. Omit it all together if you like. Ours were still a little tart. It should make about 1 and 1/2 cups of peach puree. Separate 1/2 a cup and set it aside. This reserved peach puree will be added when the ice cream is almost fully frozen to create a ribbon throughout. The other cup of puree will be mixed with the cream base.
Make the Peach Ice Cream
Now for the cream base. Whip 1 cup of heavy cream to stiff peaks and set aside. Stir together 1 cup of the peach puree, 1 cup of milk and a 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk. Then fold in the whipped cream.
If using an ice cream maker, pour the peach ice cream mixture into a shallow dish and chill in the fridge for an hour. Then churn according to your ice-cream maker instructions. About 2 minutes before it was ready, I slowly poured the reserve peach puree into the ice cream maker. This created a lovely ribbon of pure peach throughout the ice cream. If you don’t want to use an ice cream maker, pour the half the peach ice cream mixture into a shallow freezer-safe container. Then drizzle half of the reserved peach puree, pour the rest of the mixture over, then drizzle with the rest of the peach puree. Carefully transfer the container to the freezer.
I have this awesome counter top Cuisinart ice cream maker that we love. Not only do we use it for ice cream, but it makes quick slushies out of fruit juice and soda. My kids love when we do that.
With my Cuisinart, it only takes about 20 minutes to turn this mixture into ice cream. If you like a sturdier ice cream, transfer to a freezer-safe container and pop it into the freezer to set up. And if you are wondering…no, we didn’t wait!
