(For electric Ice Cream Machines) This recipe makes a delicious, soft, custard-type ice cream. If you prefer a firmer ice cream, you can chill it for an extra cycle in your ice cream machine or place it in a bowl in your freezer for an hour before serving. Prep time includes the 1 hour chilling time and the 1/2 hour beat/freezing time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Regular version

  • 1 12-2 cups fresh pureed peaches (about 4-6 peaches)
  • 23 cup sugar
  • 1 12 cups half-and-half cream
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 teaspoon almond flavoring (extract)
  • Diet version

  • 1 12-2 cups fresh pureed peaches (about 4-6 peaches)
  • 8 (1 g) envelopes Equal sugar substitute (sugar substitute)
  • 1 12 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 teaspoon almond flavoring (extract)


  1. In food processor/blender, puree peaches (peeling the peaches is optional).
  2. Blend peach puree and all ingredients until very smooth.
  3. Chill ice cream mix until cold, about 1-2 hours.
  4. Pour mix into your ice cream machine and process according to manufacturer's directions.
  5. It may be necessary to continue the"chill/beat" cycle for 15-30 minutes after the first cycle stops.
  6. Note: Since fresh Peach Ice Cream is very soft, it maybe necessary to let it"ripen" in your ice cream maker for an additional 45 minutes (or place in a bowl in freezer) if you prefer a firmer ice cream.

This recipe is extremely easy to make and is well worth the effort. I made a quart of it and devoured the entire batch in the same day. I will be preparing this often. I made 2 changes in the diet version, I used 1/2&1/2 instead of 1% milk and I used Splenda instead of equal. The taste is so creamy and refreshing, absolutely delicious.

I made this last weekend. It was delicious! I held back one peach that I diced up and added to the machine about 5 minutes before it was done so there would be bits of peach in the ice cream. Also, I added just a pinch of cinnamon. Delicious! Thanks for a great recipe.

Great recipe! Peach Ice Cream is my absolute favorite ice cream and this recipe says it all. Like Sue suggested, I did add some peach chunks at the end of the cycle. When I was pureeing the peaches, I also threw in a banana which gave it a taste to die for! Also at the end, I added some crumbled vanilla wafers that gave a little crunch and the vanilla flavor to the ice cream. The almond flavoring set the ice cream off and put in into my now favorite recipes! My boys (son and grandson) ate the whole container in one sitting!
