With fragrant, Georgia peaches piled high in my fruit bowl, it’s no surprise Lea Ann’s recipe for Fresh Peach Ice Cream beckoned me. Chopped and macerated peaches were mixed into a vanilla custard then frozen into creamy deliciousness.

The Blogger Clue team was on the hunt for recipes to beat the heat. Each of us was assigned another blog, and I was the lucky recipient of Cooking on the Ranch. Lea Ann hails from just south of Denver at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, and lives on what was formerly a working cattle ranch. She adores food and wine and takes awesome photos and cooks up some marvelous recipes. I had an inkling that I’d like to feature an ice cream, and I zeroed in on both her fresh peach version and her balsamic roasted strawberry ice cream. Since I had an ample supply of Georgia peaches ripening on my counter, the deal was done.

Peaches and Cream

Cream, half and half, sugar and peaches—destined to be sublime. I loved that there was no overnight chilling, just mix and pour into the ice cream maker. It took a few hours in the freezer to become firmer than soft serve, but I was on cloud nine sampling what was left on my machine’s paddle.

As larger piece of fruit can get icy when frozen, I’d recommend a good mashing of the diced fruit. Nick and I doubled up our peach intake by having our scoops of fresh peach ice cream over Peach Crisp. Fruit is healthy, right??? Thanks, Lea Ann, for the terrific recipe. With my dad now living in Denver, I’m hoping we can meet in person on one of my future visits! I’ve also had my eye on this dreamy Peach Sherbet. So make sure to stock up on peaches!

    • Half and half is sometimes known as coffee cream—less fat than heavy cream. You can simulate it by mixing together half milk and half heavy cream. Hope this helps 🙂
