Fresh Peach Ice Cream (Regular and Diet Versions)

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Dee514

(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.

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.

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.
