Homemade Peach Ice Cream

Peach Ice Cream Recipe - glorioustreats.com

I’m not sure if there is any food more closely associated with summer than ice cream.  It’s cool, refreshing, and there’s a flavor for everyone!

This delicious homemade peach ice cream combines two summer favorites… peaches and ice cream!  Fresh, ripe peaches are delicious on their own, but when you combine them with creamy homemade ice cream, you have a really special treat!

If you’ve never made homemade ice cream before, this would be a perfect recipe to start with.  This peach ice cream recipe is very simple, but produces such delicious results!

We haven’t had an ice cream maker for several years and I’d been missing homemade ice cream badly!  I recently discovered that KitchenAid has an Ice Cream Maker attachment that I can use with my Kitchen Aid stand mixer, so that was a perfect fit!  I keep my Kitchen Aid (stand mixer) out all the time, so it’s super simple to just grab the Ice Cream Maker bowl from the freezer and make ice cream any time I want!  I have a feeling this is going to be an extra delicious summer!  =)

Homemade Peach Ice Cream

This simple recipe produces a delicious summer treat!


2 cups heavy cream
2 cups milk (whole)
1/4 cup honey, warmed slightly
6 Tablespoons (1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons) sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large (or 3 medium) fresh peaches


1. Prepare peaches by peeling, and removing the pit. Puree ONE of the peaches (in a blender or food processor) until smooth. Dice the other peach into small pieces (about the size of a pea). Set peaches aside.
2. In a large bowl add the cream, milk, honey, and sugar. Whisk a minute or so, until the sugar has dissolved.
3. Add vanilla.
4. Add peach puree and diced peaches and whisk or stir until well combined.
5. Taste for sweetness and if desired, add additional sugar (1-2 tablespoons), then whisk until dissolved.
6. Pour ice cream mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the freezing directions.

I like using honey in this recipe, but if desired, feel free to replace the honey with sugar (in equal amounts).

The simple list of ingredients in this style of homemade ice cream causes the ice cream to freeze quite hard. I recommend setting the ice cream out at room temperature about 10 minutes before serving.

Do you make homemade ice cream in the summer?  What is your favorite flavor?  I have a long list of flavors I plan to try in our KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker!

Shopping note – I noticed that currently all KitchenAid attachments (including the ice cream maker) are 20% off (using the discount code on the site).


  1. I love the KitchenAid ice cream attachment! 🙂 This ice cream looks sooo good!

  2. I need to get that attachment ASAP!! I be this ice cream was delicious I love peaches and ice cream!!

  3. Oh this looks amazing. I wanted to make peach ice cream this weekend, bought all the ingredients and never got around to it. I am pretty inexperience when it comes to ice cream but I bought the ice cream maker and everything! I want to try this ASAP.

  4. Oh my! ! ! This looks perfectly perfect! My two favorite summer things combined! Peaches and ice cream! I’m definitely going to have to check out that ice cream maker attachment! Who knew? ? ?

  5. I just bought and ice cream maker this summer- SO so so amazing!

  6. Glory, Peach was the very memorable first flavor of homemade ice cream I had as a child, using a crank type maker, & taking a turn trying that crank! So much easier these days, and I own a Krups brand. Glad to know Kitchen Aid makes one that I can add on to the machine I love! I will totally try your recipe, as I have not made peach on my own! Thank you! Nancy

  7. Glory, that looks SO good! I have been debating getting the KA ice cream attachment … I think you might have convinced me!

  8. No need to make a custard first?? All other recipes I have tried require that you make a custard first, cool overnight and then put in the ice cream maker. This sounds much easier! Has anyone tested it out yet?

    • I’ve made this recipe several times now, and it’s super delicious! Often ice cream recipes call for eggs, which need to be heated to a safe temperature, then cooled (as you mentioned). Since this recipe does not call for eggs, the extra steps are not needed.

  9. I bought a KA ice cream maker a couple of years ago, on our trip to the States (I’m from the Netherknds) and I love to make ice cream! I’ll put it in the freezer right away, to make the peach ice cream tomorrow. Thanks for this recipe!

  10. Oh, my mouth is watering and I’m not even an ice cream fan!

  11. My Mom always made this every summer by hand and put it into our old metal ice cube tray to freeze as we didn’t have an ice cream maker . It was so yummy!

  12. This looks really good!!! Love your little bowls, plates and spoons too!!! Can I ask where to get those? 🙂

    • Thanks Teri! The little bowls are from Antropologie and the spoons are from Crate and Barrel (both purchased in the last 6 months).

  13. YUM! i have to try this recipe!

  15. ahhh glory..
    as i’m writing this, i hear the sound of my kitchenaid churning this icecream.. I am so curious how it turns out… i imagine it tastes wonderful. I always try to have my bowl in the freezer, so i can pop it out to make ice cream (or frozen yoghurt). thanks a lot for this recipe!

  16. Such a great summer treat! I love that there aren’t any eggs!

  17. I did NOT know about the KitchenAid attachment! How did I not know this?? I think some shopping is in order… and peach ice cream is in my future. ; )

    Thanks Glory!

  18. I attempted this ice cream on Sunday. The final product I’m afraid did not turn out as anticipated. When put in my kitchen aid ice cream maker (and yes it was entirely frozen as it had been in the freezer for a week) it never firmed up. After 25 mins I put the “ice cream” in the freezer and left it overnight. The final product is more ice than cream. Any suggestions on what I may have done wrong? Taste wise it is lovely but the texture is terrible!

    • Hi Verena, Very sorry you were a bit disappointed with this. You did everything right, but I’m guessing you’ve never made homemade ice cream before? Generally homemade ice cream freezes more solid than store-bought ice cream. The easy solution to this is before trying to scoop it, let the ice cream sit out at room temperature about 10 minutes (or as necessary). Once it thaws just a bit, the ice cream should be quite creamy, although it will still have a bit more texture (from tiny ice crystals) than some store bought ice cream.

  19. Oh yum! I wish I lived closer to you so I could buy fruit from Lacey and have ice cream making parties with you! Love you!

  22. I just made this tonight. Its just delicious! I love that it has no eggs. The homemade ice cream I had growing up left us all sick the next day.

  23. Very good however it froze up very hard. I think 1/4 of sugar is a bit light in the base. But not icy and very peachy

    • Yes, as mentioned in the recipe, the ice cream does freeze quite hard. I usually let it set out at room temperature about 10 minutes before serving. The recipe lists 1/4 cup honey, plus 1/4 cup sugar, feel free to adjust these amounts to your tastes. Enjoy!

  25. I know this is a year later, but I definitely want to try this ice cream. We make so much homemade ice cream during the summer and actually almost all year! We don’t buy ice cream any more…we always make our own. So many different and unusual flavors to try and with all the fresh fruit in the summer…..! Our family just loves homemade ice cream and our maker gets quite a work out! I’m anxious to try this recipe and see how the family likes it. We grow our own peaches, so this is a good way to use them. I have a peach recipe that calls for the custard, so am hoping this is one that the family will like as well as it seems to be so much easier and quicker. Thanks for sharing!

  26. I understand that this recipe freezes hard, but there are a couple of things you might try to change the texture. Add a table spoon of vodka to the mix. Alcohol has a lower freezing point and this helps keep the ice cream from freezing rock solid. The other is to replace two table spoons of the sugar with 2 tablespoons of light corn syrup. The sugar crystals in the corn syrup also keep the ice cream from freezing as hard. One last trick to improve the texture is to stir the ice cream every three hours or so as it freezes. This incorporates more air into the mixture so it does not freeze as solidly.

  27. Clove Chewing Gum.
    There is another interesting, flavorful ice-cream (clove) made using almost this exact same recipe, but with some differences. Heat the two cups whole milk and two cups heavy cream (I use half and half with great results) to hot but not boiling. Add 50 cloves and let steep for at least 30 minutes or up to an hour. Really fresh cloves would take less time, older cloves — like from last thanksgiving — might take longer. The trick it to taste every so often. If left too long the flavor becomes very medicinal in a bad way. You’ll know when it tastes right. Strain the cloves out and return the cream mixture to a large pan, and add the sugar. I use one cup of sugar but you can use up to two cups though that will be very sweet. Bring to a boil and stir constantly for exactly 4 minutes let cool. Add a T spoon of vanilla if desired. Let cool in the lost part of the refrigerator over night. When you are ready to make the ice cream, add an eight cup of vodka, and freeze according to manufacturer directions. This tastes just like the old fashion Adam’s clove chewing gum.

  28. Sorry. “lost” = “lowest”. : ]

  36. How many servings does this recipe make?

  37. I just made this tonight. Its just delicious! I love that it has no eggs. The homemade ice cream I had growing up left us all sick the next day.

  38. So I tried this recipe last night in me kitchen aid ice cream attachment and I had difficulty getting the ice cream to solidify. I ended up having to put the mix in the freezer before I could serve it. I have had this problem with other recipes too. Any tips on using the ice cream attachment? 

    • Hi Abby,
      I used the Kitchen Aid Ice Cream maker/bowl and that does require freezing after mixing. I’m not sure if you have a different kind of attachment, but the instructions on mine require freezing after mixing if you want firm ice cream. The attachment generally produces a soft serve (or thick milk shake) type consistency on it’s own, and requires additional freeze time for true ice cream.
