This No Churn Peach Ice Cream uses fresh peaches with a handful of other ingredients to make a creamy frozen treat! And it doesn’t require an ice cream maker!
This ice cream has been on repeat this past month. It’s the only way to beat the heat, lol! We have also been enjoying this No Churn Strawberry Ice Cream and No Bake Vanilla Cheesecake. (Are you seeing a no bake theme here!)
When it’s hot outside all I can think about eating is ice cream. And what says summer better than peach ice cream?!?!
I decided to make a no churn version so you don’t have to run and buy an ice cream maker, you’re welcome!
Peaches: use ripe peaches for the best flavor. You can substitute in canned or frozen but I found the flavor to be a little lacking. You can roast your peaches to intensify their flavor even more. Do this causes the water from the peach to evaporate thus creating more flavor. Just allow the peaches to cool after you puree them.
Sweetened condensed milk
Heavy whipping cream
Cinnamon: just a little bit that adds a little extra something
Salt: yes you read that right. Just a pinch is all.
How to make this homemade peach ice cream without a machine:
Peel and puree 1/2 of the peaches. Chop remaining peaches; set these aside while we work on the ice cream base.
Whip the cream, vanilla, and cinnamon at high speed until you have stiff peaks.
Gently fold in the pureed peaches, chopped peaches, and sweetened condensed milk.
Now to choose a container for freezing. There are plenty of options:
- A loaf pan
- A tupperware container
- An old ice cream bucket
- Reusable ice cream tubs
- Paper cups with lids (great for gifting or for taking ice cream on the go)
Time to freeze then serve! Before serving allow the ice cream to sit at room temperature for a few minutes to make it easier to scoop.
How long can you store ice cream?
As long as it is stored properly ice cream can stay in the freezer for up to 2 months. But honestly if you still have ice cream in the freezer that long there is definitely something wrong, lol!
With no churn ice creams with fruit in then I like to place a piece of plastic wrap on the surface of the ice cream to help prevent ice crystals from forming.
This No Churn Peach Ice Cream uses fresh peaches with a handful of other ingredients to make a creamy frozen treat! And it doesn't require an ice cream maker!
- 1½ pounds (695g) fresh ripe peaches
- 2 cups (475ml) heavy whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, optional
- pinch of salt, yes you read that right
- 1 (14oz)(396g) sweetened condensed milk
Peel ½ of the peaches and puree in a food processor or blender. Dice the remaining peaches; set aside.
In a large bowl whip the heavy cream, vanilla, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form.
Fold in the peach puree, and sweetened condensed milk. Spoon into desired freezer safe containers and scatter diced peaches across the top. Using a spoon just barely mix in (too much mixing and the peaches will sink to the bottom). Freeze for at least 12 hours. Let stand at room temperature a few minutes before serving.
- Use a whipping cream with at least 35% fat.
- Do not use low-fat cream or sweetened condensed milk.
- To intensify the peach flavor even more you can roast the peaches. This causes the water to evaporate from the peaches making their flavor stronger. Just allow to cool after pureeing before folding into the cream.
- To help prevent ice crystals from forming I like to place a piece of plastic wrap across the top of the ice cream before placing the lid on.
