The texture of this yummy peach gelato should be between a soft-serve ice cream and dense gelato. The fresh peach flavor is outstanding!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut peaches into very small pieces.
  2. Arrange peach pieces in a single layer on a rimmed cookie sheet and freeze solid, about 2 hours.
  3. Put frozen peach pieces in a food processor with the sugar and grind briefly.
  4. Add mascarpone or yogurt and pulse until mixture is smooth.
  5. Empty processor into a small container and freeze again, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  6. If gelato freezes solid, process it briefly again before serving.
  7. Note: Depending on the sweetness of the peaches, you may want to add more sugar.

I really wanted this to be delicious- it was so easy. However, the flavor was just so-so and the texture was blah- it was cool and fruity, but nothing like gelato.

I have been looking for a healthy alternative to bought icecream for the family, and this is it. With homemade yoghurt and local produce...from mangoes to pines to bananas...this will be a regular in our freezer! Thanks!
