Key ingredients & substitutions for easy Peach Ice Cream recipe

  • Peaches — I’m a huge proponent of fresh, but of course, using frozen peaches will work as well. Just make sure to thaw and drain beforehand.
  • Sweetened condensed milk — Did you grab evaporated milk by mistake? No worries. Evaporated milk works too and is a good one-to-one alternative, only not as sweet. If you like that sweetness, you’ll need to add a little extra sugar for that extra kick. 
  • Honey — A tablespoon of honey is a perfect compliment to fresh peaches. 
  • Sugar — Need to lessen the sugar content? Stevia is a good alternative. Use 1 tsp Stevia for 1 cup sugar.  
  • Vanilla extract — Maple syrup is close to this flavor and is a perfect swap or try your hand at vanilla bean paste. 
  • Whipping cream — Other substitutes are available, but there’s nothing like the real thing! If you need to though, evaporated milk can also sub for whipping cream as well as Greek yogurt with a little whole milk for texture.

How to make Peach Ice Cream without a machine

For best results, place your mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for a few minutes before you start whipping the heavy cream.

STEP 1 | Combine wet ingredients

Start with the sweetened condensed milk and pour it into a large bowl. The vanilla and honey go in next. Stir it until it’s blended well and set it aside for the moment.

STEP 2 | Prepare peaches

You want to peel and dice your peaches next. Place them in a blender with the sugar and pulse until the peaches are in bits. Not completely smooth, just bits. Reserve ½ cup of the mixture for later.

tips

  • This recipe works with or without the peaches. If you’re not a fan of peach flavor or you’re a vanilla gal/guy, just leave out the peaches or exchange it and include other flavors like chocolate or butterscotch if that’s your sweet tooth.

STEP 3 | Whip the heavy cream

Then in a separate bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream with the whisk attachment of your electric mixer or stand mixer. Beat for about 3-4 minutes until those stiff peaks form. (Don’t forget the “for best results” I added above.)

STEP 4 | Combine the creams

Now take a large spoonful of the whipped cream and add to the bowl with the peach cream. Gently fold it together with a rubber spatula. Then fold in the remaining whipped cream.

STEP 5 | Layer and freeze

Now it is time to begin assembling the peachy good ice cream. Start by pouring half the mixture into a loaf pan as your bottom layer. Next, sprinkle with half of the remaining sweet peach puree.

Repeat these layers, and then use the tip of a knife to gently swirl the mixture.

Cover the top of the ice cream with a layer of waxed paper or parchment paper. Go ahead and push it down directly onto the ice cream and freeze until it’s firm — about 6 hours.

  • I love cute and functionality! These Reusable Ice Cream Containers are perfect for this old-fashioned ice cream recipe, and they even come with cute labels. And best of all, they’re reusable! 
  • Remove the ice cream from the freezer a few minutes before serving to make it easier to scoop.

Behind the recipe: Peach Ice Cream

Which country consumes the most ice cream? You guessed it. USA is the winner! 

It’s because old-fashioned ice cream, whether or not made from an ice cream maker, is always a summertime favorite. 

You may have some sweet memories growing up of making homemade ice cream with a churn on 4th of July (which is ice cream month by the way).
