Makes 2 quarts

Cool off this summer with a refreshing scoop (or a few) of our homemade peach ice cream. Offering the classic peaches-and-cream combo in every bite, this fruit-based ice cream is the perfect way to showcase bright summer flavors. If you’re able to use fresh Georgia peaches, you’re one of the lucky ones. Make a batch while peaches are in season, and enjoy the silky-smooth treat all summer long. Pair it with a fresh slice of peach pie, a toasted pecan topping, or just a warm evening outdoors. This delightfully creamy dessert is sure to become a summertime favorite.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine peaches and sugar, and let stand 1 hour.

Step 2

Process peach mixture in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides.

Step 3

Stir together evaporated milk and pudding mix in a large bowl; stir in peach puree, condensed milk, and half-and-half.

Step 4

Pour mixture into freezer container of a 4-quart hand-turned or electric freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Spoon into an airtight container, and freeze until firm.

Very tasty, though I would probably cut the sugar in half next time. I had to make another batch sans sugar and mix the two batches in order to make the ice cream less sweet. Easy, tasty, and full of peach flavor. Will try with other fruits in the future!

So easy, and really yummy. I make half of the recipe and freeze it in my Cuisinart ice cream maker. I also make ice cream sandwiches using this and homemade ginger cookies. The only ice cream I will ever make!

New Family Favorite! It was even better the next day after sitting in the freezer for 24 hours. Grandkids loved it. The only thing I will do different in the future is save out enough diced peaches that have not been in the food processor and add them just before churning. We like frozen chunks of peaches in ours.

The BEST peach ice cream I have ever tasted!! Look no further because this recipe is IT! Tastes a lot like Blue Bell's homemade peach/vanilla ice cream. Definitely a keeper. I went exactly by the recipe and wouldn't change a thing. This recipe would also be good with strawberries. Can wait to try that too.
