Peaches are my all time favorite flavor of fruit. I love peaches. I love peach flavored candy. I like peach scented candles and perfumes. It’s save to say I love it in all forms. So this summer in America with temperatures soaring over 100 this week we needed something to cool us down. I have wanted to create the creamiest and smoothest peach ice cream recipe for so long. Well, here it is folks. It’s super fast and easy too, like all my family recipes on this blog.
It seems to be the hot thing to cook and bake with peaches this year. I am seeing a variety of hundreds of peach recipes all over pinterest. The kids are always fond of a peach smoothie for an after school snack too.
The Key To Creamy Homemade Ice Cream
This recipe came out better than I expected. Normally, I would use milk or half and half with heavy cream but this time I was going for full flavor, creamy, and smooth textures so I used all heavy cream instead. If you use milk it makes it a little harder when it comes out of the freezer. I used fresh peaches for the puree and can peaches for the chunks added at the end. It gives it more peach flavor I think using the canned peaches. But it’s just as good with fresh peaches too.

Try Different Flavoured Homemade Ice Creams
It really was the easiest ice cream recipe to make. You can adapt it to any flavor of ice cream you want really just substitute the puree peaches with an alternative fruit puree. I think huckleberry will be next. What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
I have some more delicious recipes for ice cream that you might want to try. Jammy dodger marshmallow is always popular, or blackcurrant cheesecake ice cream if you like to stick with the fruit theme. Alternatively, my jam and yoghurt ice lollies are a quick option for the kids. Whatever flavour you choose – don’t forget to drizzle a little homemade salted caramel sauce on the top.
Don’t Like Chunky Ice Cream?
You can easily make this no chunks too. Just don’t add any at the end. It still is packed full of peach flavor and comes out of the ice cream maker smooth and creamy. Making it for your kids why not add some sprinkles too it before freezing?
