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

This Easy Homemade Peach Ice Cream is the epitome of summer desserts! Seasonal peaches frozen with a luscious, creamy custard is a most delicious way to keep cool on a hot, humid day.

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 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, a fresh peach ice cream recipe seemed a must!

Tips for Making an Easy Homemade Peach Ice Cream

Cream, half and half, sugar and peaches—this fresh peach ice cream was destined to be sublime.

  • No overnight chilling was needed, just mix and pour into the ice cream maker.
  • It took a few hours in the freezer to become firmer than soft serve, but it was worth the wait. I was on cloud nine sampling what was left on my machine’s paddle.
  • Note that there are no eggs in this ice cream recipe so no cooking needed either. 
  • 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???
