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! =)
How to Make Homemade Peach Ice Cream
Homemade Peach Ice Cream
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 cups milk whole
- 1/4 cup honey warmed slightly
- 6 tablespoons sugar 1/4 cup
- 2 tablespoons sugar additional
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2-3 peaches
- 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.
- In a large bowl add the cream, milk, honey, and sugar. Whisk a minute or so, until the sugar has dissolved.
- Add vanilla.
- Add peach puree and diced peaches and whisk or stir until well combined.
- Taste for sweetness and if desired, add additional sugar (1-2 tablespoons), then whisk until dissolved.
- Pour ice cream mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the freezing directions.
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).
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!
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.

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

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