My mom asked me to make her some peach melba ice cream. I used the base of this recipe to work from. I ended up adding about another cup and a half of peach puree and I only used about 2.5 cups of the half and half. After churning in my ice cream maker I folded in additionl chunks of diced peaches and added a ribbon of raspberry sauce. Mom is what I call a peach ice cream snob - this being my first attempt, I was a bit nervous. It was a huge success! She said it's to die for! Thank you for this super simple recipe!! Will definitely make this again.
I gave this recipe a try since it did not require any eggs, cooking or heavy cream. This is the first time I've made peach ice cream but the amount of sugar & sweetened condensed milk seemed excessive so I only used 1/2 cup sugar to sprinkle on the peaches and used 1/2 can of the sweetened condensed milk. Even with those sweetener reductions I still think it's on the sweet side so next time I don't plan to use any sugar to sprinkle on the peaches and will still use only 1/2 can of the sweetened condensed milk. I used frozen unsweetened peach slices since peaches are not in season yet so that could be why the peach flavor was not strong enough. Next time if I use frozen peaches I'll increase the amount of peaches to get a stronger peach flavor. The recipe as is only deserves 3 stars but I'm rating it 4 stars for how easy it is to prepare and for the lower fat content.
Very good and so easy to make. I followed other suggestions and cut the sugar in half and also added diced peaches to the mix. Now I am looking for other fruits, etc. to add to this easy base - I am thinking of trying one with cherries and chocolate - kind of like Cherry Garcia!!!
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.
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!
