Canned Peach Ice Cream, a delicious no-churn ice cream made with condensed milk and cream. Really easy to make with only 3 ingredients, this homemade ice cream can be enjoyed all year round. My kind of treat!
As much as l love fresh fruit, sometimes the canned ones are not just the next best thing, but the best thing. Outside their season, some fruit are tasteless, and quite pricy too, so not worth buying them. Take peaches – if you find some ripe, juicy, sweet ones, they are absolutely amazing.
But the thing is, sometimes even in season perfect peaches are hard to find. So the canned ones are amazing in desserts and sweet treats that can be made all year round, without the need to wait for the right time to come.

I made this Canned Peach Crumble not long away and it was pure heaven. Canned fruit, apart from being easily available all year round, is also really cheap, unlike the fresh ones.
I can’t think of a more delicious ice cream than peach ice cream. It’s flavourful, it’s super easy to make, and if you use cream and condensed milk, there is nothing else that you require. Not even an ice cream maker. How amazing is that!

How to make canned peach ice cream without an ice cream maker
As previously mentioned, we only need 3 INGREDIENTS to make this ice cream: canned peaches, condensed milk and double cream (heavy cream).
- drain the peaches and add them to a bender to mash until smooth – you can reserve a few slices to decorate
- transfer the peach puree to a pan set over a medium heat, and let it simmer until the puree is reduced by a quarter of its volume
NOTE! Simmering the puree helps evaporate some of the water in the puree, otherwise we end up with ice particles in the ice cream.
- leave the puree to cool down completely
- beat the cream until it holds still peaks, then add the condensed milk and peach puree
- mix well to incorporate
- transfer the mixture to a plastic container
- roughly chop the reserved peaches, and scatter them around the ice cream for a nice texture and taste
- freeze for at least 6 hours, ideally overnight
Tips and Tricks
If the peach puree is not watery, there should not be any need to mix the ice cream at regular intervals of time, although you can do it if you want to ensure a perfectly creamy ice cream.
If the ice cream is too solid and cannot be scooped, leave it at room temperature for 30 minutes or so until it gets to the right texture. I find that dipping the ice cream scoop in water before scooping helps massively too.
The chopped peaches add a fantastic touch to the ice cream, not only esthetically, but also texture wise, so I definitely recommend adding them to the ice cream.
A combo of peach and apricots would be amazing too, as well as using fresh and canned peaches at the same time. Just make sure you reduce the puree first, and you are good to go.
