Enjoy the sweet and juicy flavors of summer with this Homemade Peach Ice Cream! Perfectly creamy and loaded with fresh peaches, this ice cream is a delightful treat for any occasion.

πŸ“‹ Ingredients:

  • πŸ‘ 2 cups fresh peaches, peeled and chopped (about 4-5 peaches)
  • 🍬 3/4 cup granulated sugar (divided)
  • πŸ₯› 2 cups heavy cream
  • πŸ₯› 1 cup whole milk
  • πŸ₯š 4 large egg yolks
  • 🌿 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • πŸ‹ 1 tablespoon lemon juice

πŸ“ Directions:

1️⃣ Prepare the Peaches:

  • In a medium bowl, combine the chopped peaches with 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and the lemon juice. Stir to combine and let sit for 30 minutes to macerate. After 30 minutes, mash the peaches slightly with a fork or potato masher to release more juices.

2️⃣ Make the Ice Cream Base:

  • In a medium saucepan, heat the heavy cream and whole milk over medium heat until just about to simmer (do not let it boil).
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and the remaining 1/2 cup of granulated sugar until the mixture is pale and thick.
  • Slowly pour the hot cream mixture into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly to temper the eggs.
  • Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon (about 170Β°F or 77Β°C). Do not let it boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.

3️⃣ Combine and Chill:

  • Strain the custard mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl to remove any cooked egg bits.
  • Stir in the macerated peaches and their juices.
  • Cover the mixture with plastic wrap, pressing it directly onto the surface of the custard to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, until completely chilled.

4️⃣ Churn the Ice Cream:

  • Once the mixture is chilled, pour it into your ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

5️⃣ Freeze:

  • Transfer the churned ice cream to an airtight container and freeze for at least 2 hours, or until firm.

6️⃣ Serve:

  • Scoop and enjoy your homemade peach ice cream in bowls or cones.
