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 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 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.
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.
