Peach Ice Cream

One of the ice cream recipes I’ve been wanting to try from my “ice cream bible” The Perfect Scoop is peach ice cream.  We’ve got a couple of peach trees that actually have peaches on them this year so I’ve been eagerly anticipating their ripening.  Well I lucked up because my mom called and asked me to bring my ice cream maker to their house when I visited because they had a ton of peaches and wanted to make ice cream.  Score!

Peach ice cream is just classic, there’s not much else to say about it.  This is a great and easy recipe that everyone enjoyed!

Peach Ice Cream
Recipe from:  The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz

1.5 lbs ripe peaches
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
a few drops of fresh squeezed lemon juice


Peel your peaches.  Mine were very ripe so they were easy to peel, otherwise you could make an X in the bottom of them and put them in boiling water for twenty seconds.  Discard the pits.  Cook the peaches with the water in a small nonreactive saucepan about ten minutes, stirring once in a while.

Remove from heat, mix in the sugar and let it cool off to room temperature. 

Add the heavy cream, vanilla, sour cream and lemon juice and puree with a blender or immersion mixer until it’s somewhat smooth, some small chunks are ok.  Cover and refrigerate until well-chilled.

Once chilled, freeze per your ice cream maker’s instructions.
