What Goes Into Peach Ice Cream?

Ingredients for Homemade Peach Ice Cream.

What is the Secret Ingredient in Ice Cream?

The four main ingredients in ice cream are milk, cream, sugar, and egg yolk. However, the secret ingredient – the ingredient that makes ice cream the rich treat that we all love – is the butterfat that is in the milk and cream.

Be sure to use whole milk and whipping cream (not half-and-half) to make this peach ice cream taste creamy, smooth, and rich.

To begin, peel and slice your peaches. Then, combine them with a 1/2 cup of sugar and a few squeezes of fresh lemon juice. Let them sit at room temperature for about an hour or until the peaches are soft and have released their juices to create a syrup.

Once the peaches are soft and syrupy, you’ll want to mash them up thoroughly. I like to use a submersion blender and just pulse a few times, but you can also use the back of a fork or even a potato masher. You don’t want large pieces because the large frozen peaches will freeze into hard rocks in the ice cream.

After mashing the peaches, strain through a mesh strainer. Reserve the liquid to add to the ice cream base (this is what gives the ice cream its delicious peach flavor), and put the chopped peaches into the fridge until you’re ready to use them.

While the peaches are doing their thing, you can make the custard ice cream base. Begin by heating the milk, cream, and 1/2 cup of sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. You don’t want to boil the mixture, but you want it to get very hot.

While the milk mixture is heating up, whisk together the egg yolks and remaining 1/4 cup of sugar until they are light in color. While whisking, very slowly drizzle in 1/2 cup of the hot milk mixture to temper the eggs.

Slowly whisk the egg mixture back into the hot cream in the saucepan. Continue to cook over medium-low heat, stirring gently, until the custard is hot and just thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.

To ensure that your Peach Ice Cream is creamy and smooth, pour the custard mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a clean bowl. This will ensure that no bits of egg white or any other lumps make their way into your ice cream.

Stir in the liquid from the mashed peaches, cover with plastic wrap, and then refrigerate for at least 4 hours until the ice cream base is thoroughly chilled.

When the custard is completely chilled, you’ll pour it into your ice cream maker (normally, this has a bowl component that has also been chilled in the freezer before use) and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for churning and freezing. This normally takes about 30 minutes, but you’ll want to add the mashed peaches about halfway through when the ice cream begins to thicken.

Once it’s churned, you can eat it, but I tend to want it a little more frozen than the ice cream maker can usually achieve on its own, so I transfer it to an air-tight container and freeze it for another 4 hours before serving.

Serve it up in ice cream cones or dishes, or just scoop it right out of the ice cream container! You’re going to love this Homemade Fresh Peach Ice Cream, I promise.
