Homemade Peach Ice Cream

It’s summer, so it’s time to get out the ice cream maker. I have to admit, we haven’t used ours much. But after I realized how easy it was, we will definitely be making homemade ice cream more often. Here is a delicious recipe for peach ice cream.

2 1/2 pounds fresh peaches, peeled and chopped
1/2 c. sugar
1 pint (2 cups) half-and-half cream
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
2 cups whole milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

The recipe calls for whole milk, but I used 2% milk instead, and the ice cream still turned out great. This recipe makes about 1 gallon of peach ice cream.

Place the peaches, sugar, and half-and-half in a blender, and puree until smooth. In a large bowl, mix together the peach puree, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, whole milk, and vanilla.

Pour mixture into your ice cream freezer container and freeze according to manufacturer’s directions.

The ice cream will be soft when it is done. If you move it to the freezer it will harden completely. I found these great 32 oz. freezer containers at Amazon that are perfect for storing ice cream. This recipe will fill 3 of these freezer containers.

  1. This was delicious. However, I couldn’t put the entire “batter” into my ice cream machine in one batch to freeze entirely. My machine isn’t big enough. So I made half and put the other half in the refrigerator to freeze the next day. It would not freeze. It stayed liquid the whole time. The first fresh made batch froze into ice cream beautifully. Do you have any idea what would cause this to happen? I hated wasting a whole half of this. It is very flavorful and great texture. We loved it other than having to waste half. Thanks!


    1. Hi! That is really strange. I’m not quite sure why that would happen. I just tried to find some info on it and some recipes actually recommend you refrigerate the ice cream overnight before you put it in the ice cream machine. So maybe you will just have to cut the recipe in half? Sorry about that!
