Homemade Peach Ice Cream

There’s nothing like making your own Homemade Peach Ice Cream. This recipe is filled with fresh peaches, real cream, and no eggs!

I’ve been making Homemade Peach Ice Cream for a while now because there’s nothing like watching an ice cream maker churn up a delicious treat you make yourself. It’s foolproof, sweet, and creamy. Actually, I’d even say it’s peachy keen!

As soon as summer begins, I start talking about dusting off the ice cream machine. I found this recipe in Southern Living Magazine years ago and have been using it ever since.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

This homemade peach ice cream recipe is consistently good every time you make it. You don’t have to worry about whether or not it will turn out.

The ingredients are easy to find and quick to put together. Everything you need can easily be found at your local grocery store.

There are no egg yolks involved. It’s an egg free ice cream!

Ingredient List

The only thing I changed from the original recipe is the amount of sugar added. It called for 1 cup, but I only add 1/2 cup to the mix and it still tastes sweet since there’s sweetened condensed milk included.

  • fresh peaches
  • sugar
  • sweetened condensed milk
  • vanilla instant pudding
  • evaporated milk
  • half & half

Step by Step Instructions

Peel and dice the peaches, then place them in a bowl with sugar. Mash with a fork and leave some pulp so there will be peaches in the finished product. Stir well, then place in the fridge for about an hour.

In the freezer bowl container of your ice cream maker, add the sweetened condensed milk, instant pudding and evaporated milk. Whisk until smooth. Add the peaches from the refrigerator and half & half, then whisk again.

Place the container in the ice cream maker and put the lid on. Pack the outside with rock salt and ice in layers until it reaches the top. Follow the directions included with your ice cream maker for best results.

Turn the ice cream maker on and let it work it’s magic. When the churning stops, remove the container.

If the ice cream is solid enough, it can be eaten right away. If it needs to freeze longer, put it in a plastic container and process in the freezer for a few hours until solid.

What are Freestone Peaches?

Every summer, I’m chomping at the bit until the freestone peaches make their way up the mountain from South Carolina to our farmer’s market. In my opinion, there’s nothing like a freestone peach. They’re sweeter, juicier, and just plain yummier.

Freestone peaches are easy to eat and slice because they break away from the pit without any fuss. In contrast, a clingstone peach hangs on to the pit which makes it harder to work with if you’re peeling a lot of peaches.

Although you can find freestone peaches throughout the states, they are most popular in South Carolina and Georgia. In fact, you’ll often see some produce marketed as ‘Georgia Peaches’ in the grocery stores. Always ask before you buy if you are looking specifically for freestones.
