Key ingredients & substitutions for easy Peach Ice Cream recipe
- Peaches — I’m a huge proponent of fresh, but of course, using frozen peaches will work as well. Just make sure to thaw and drain beforehand.
- Sweetened condensed milk — Did you grab evaporated milk by mistake? No worries. Evaporated milk works too and is a good one-to-one alternative, only not as sweet. If you like that sweetness, you’ll need to add a little extra sugar for that extra kick.
- Honey — A tablespoon of honey is a perfect compliment to fresh peaches.
- Sugar — Need to lessen the sugar content? Stevia is a good alternative. Use 1 tsp Stevia for 1 cup sugar.
- Vanilla extract — Maple syrup is close to this flavor and is a perfect swap or try your hand at vanilla bean paste.
- Whipping cream — Other substitutes are available, but there’s nothing like the real thing! If you need to though, evaporated milk can also sub for whipping cream as well as Greek yogurt with a little whole milk for texture.
How to make Peach Ice Cream without a machine
For best results, place your mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for a few minutes before you start whipping the heavy cream.
STEP 1 | Combine wet ingredients
Start with the sweetened condensed milk and pour it into a large bowl. The vanilla and honey go in next. Stir it until it’s blended well and set it aside for the moment.
STEP 2 | Prepare peaches
You want to peel and dice your peaches next. Place them in a blender with the sugar and pulse until the peaches are in bits. Not completely smooth, just bits. Reserve ½ cup of the mixture for later.
Pour the remainder of the mixture from the blender into the bowl with the sweetened condensed milk.
STEP 3 | Whip the heavy cream
Then in a separate bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream with the whisk attachment of your electric mixer or stand mixer. Beat for about 3-4 minutes until those stiff peaks form. (Don’t forget the “for best results” I added above.)
STEP 4 | Combine the creams
Now take a large spoonful of the whipped cream and add to the bowl with the peach cream. Gently fold it together with a rubber spatula. Then fold in the remaining whipped cream.
STEP 5 | Layer and freeze
Now it is time to begin assembling the peachy good ice cream. Start by pouring half the mixture into a loaf pan as your bottom layer. Next, sprinkle with half of the remaining sweet peach puree.
Repeat these layers, and then use the tip of a knife to gently swirl the mixture.
Cover the top of the ice cream with a layer of waxed paper or parchment paper. Go ahead and push it down directly onto the ice cream and freeze until it’s firm — about 6 hours.
