Gluten Free Peaches and Cream Ice Cream Recipe<

Ice Cream Ingredients:

  • 4 large very ripe peaches, peeled, cut into chunks (about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup peach juice (or 3 tbsp juice and 1 tbsp peach schnapps)
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream (35% fat)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (full fat)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp lemon juice

Ice Cream Directions:

  1. Place the peaches, water, juice and schnapps in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cover and cook until the peaches are soft, stirring a few times.
  2. Transfer peaches, along with the liquid, into a non-reactive bowl. Stir in the sugar and let the peach mixture cool, uncovered, to room temperature.
  3. When the peaches have cooled, add the cream, sour cream, vanilla and lemon juice. Puree with an immersion blender until blended but bits of peaches remain.
  4. Cover and chill the mixture thoroughly in the fridge. (You can put in the freezer towards the end to make it extra cold.)
  5. Churn in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.

    I wonder if I could make this with coconut milk instead of cream? I love peach ice cream but I don’t like the belly ache it causes. This recipe sounds super simple and I think I will experiment to get it dairy free. Can’t wait!!
