Peachy Keen Ice Cream


I scored some fresh peaches on sale this week and knew I had to try this recipe.  This is only the second time that I have made homemade ice cream with my new ice cream maker and I really liked this recipe.  I used four medium sized peaches to make this and it was very creamy and peachy but not too sweet.   Hope you enjoy!


Makes 16 servings


1-1/4 pounds fresh peaches;  peeled, pitted and chopped
1/4 cup white sugar
1 cup half and half cream
1/2 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole milk


  1. Puree peaches with the sugar and half-and-half in batches in a blender or food processor.
  2. In a gallon ice cream freezer container, mix together the peach mixture, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and vanilla. Pour in enough whole milk to fill the container to the fill line, about 2 cups.
  3. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to freeze the ice cream.
