Note from Laurie: My friend Cheryl made this homemade peach ice cream, and it looks divine (and good for you too ~ yum!)
Hand picked peaches in the south (or anywhere) are soooooo good! There is an orchard close to our home so we decided to go and pick some peaches for the first time ever.
I was searching for a healthier recipe for peaches when this one for Peach Ice Cream popped up and I knew we had to try it.
I’m SO … so … so glad we did!
Here’s what you’ll need to get started.
Gather up your ingredients and peel and slice your peaches. The riper the peaches, the easier they are to peel.
Once you have your peaches peeled and sliced, pop them into a food processor or blender until they are finely chopped. My little one loves peaches almost as much as cupcakes and couldn’t wait to help.
Mix the remaining ingredients into a large bowl.
Pour all that into your ice cream maker (this was a splurge Christmas present from last year and we have really enjoyed using it!)
Once it’s done you can eat it right out of the ice cream maker and store any remaining in the freezer for up to two weeks. Enjoy!!
