I love all things Ice Cream and although I typically love Homemade Ice Cream with Chocolate or cookies or brownies, I’m in love with how refreshing Peach Ice Cream is.  With just a hint of cinnamon in the vanilla based ice cream it’s spectacular.

Serve in a waffle cone or waffle bowl for an added treat that you won’t regret.  And how about on top of a Fresh Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler.  Oh yum!  What a fantastic combination for 2 great recipes. 

Homemade Peach Ice Cream

Let’s gather all the ingredients and I’ll help you with step by step directions so you can make this wonderful recipe. 

Supplies for making Homemade Ice Cream

Let’s get your supplies ready. You will need an ice cream mixer. I have the Cuisinart 2 Qt Automatic Ice Cream, Sorbet, and Frozen Yogurt maker. The inner cylinder needs to be frozen. I suggest 24 hours in the freezer for best results. You will also need a saucepan and either a wooden flat spoon or a silicone spatula.

It’s also helpful to have a digital thermometer. I prefer to use the Thermopen by Thermoworks. Find out more about why I love my Thermopen

Shopping List for Peach Ice Cream

  • Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Whole Milk (or 2% Milk)
  • Sugar
  • Peaches
  • Egg Yolks
  • Cinnamon

Now that you have gathered all the ingredients and supplies to make the BEST Homemade Ice Cream, let’s get started!

How to make Homemade Peach Ice Cream

Begin by separating the egg whites from the egg yolks.  Place egg yolks in a larger bowl.  You can discard the egg whites or save and use for an egg white omelets.  Add 1/3 cup of granulated sugar to the egg yolks and whisk.  They will be bright yellow at first but the more you whisk the more pale yellow they become and the consistency turns from thick to a thin ribbon like mixture.

In a medium size sauce pan add 1/3 cup sugar, whipping cream, and milk and a pinch of cinnamon.  Whisk together over medium/high heat until mixture reaches about 165 degree.  Use a digital read thermometer.  Mixture will be hot and steamy but will not boil.

How to Temper Eggs

Tempering eggs simply means to bring eggs up to the temperature of the rest of the ingredients.  Adding cold eggs to hot ingredients will typically cause the eggs to scramble which is not ideal for this recipe.

Once milk mixture reaches about 165 degrees pour about ½ cup into whisked egg yolks and whisk together.  Then add another ½ cup of milk mixture to egg mixture and whisk.  Once everything is combined, pour egg mixture into remaining milk mixture in sauce pan and whisk everything together.

How to make Peach Ice Cream (continued)

Heat mixture to 175 degrees to cook eggs.  The mixture will be hot and steamy but will not be boiling.  Use a thermometer to monitor temperature.  Eggs help make Ice Cream custard like and very creamy.  It also helps to create nice scoopable scoops of Ice Cream.

Allow mixture to cool in refrigerator for 4 hours OR place sauce pan in an ice water bath and cool mixture to below 50 degrees.  It will take about 30 minutes in an Ice bath to cool completely. 

Pour cooled mixture into Ice Cream Maker and Follow directions for your own individual maker.  Mine takes about 30-40 minutes to churn Ice Cream.  Some will take longer and others will take less time. 

Meanwhile peel and remove pit from 2 peaches and place in food processor with remaining sugar and puree.  You can leave chunks of peaches if you wish. 

Add about half the puree to the Ice Cream maker three quarters way through the churning process.  Example – If your Ice Cream maker takes 30 minutes, then at 22 minutes of churning add about ½ of the Peach puree into the Ice Cream Mixture.  Reserve the remaining puree until the end for nice peach puree swirls in the Ice Cream.

At the end add remaining puree to Ice cream and allow Ice Cream Maker to swirl puree through the Ice Cream.  Remove Ice Cream and place in a sealed containing and freeze in freezer until hard, about 2 hours. 

Serve Peach Ice Cream with Waffle Cones or Bowls, or a simple Nilla Wafer and sliced peaches.  This refreshing dessert will be a favorite all during peach season.

What do Eggs Add to Ice Cream?
