Well hello. As you can see from my recent lack of posts, things have not slowed down much at my house. I am going through serious crafting withdrawals. It’s been ages since I’ve had time to work on a project. All my free time has been spent in the kitchen trying to find ways to use up our abundance of produce. I’ve bottled salsa, frozen berries, and made all kinds of stuff with zucchini. And peaches. And green peppers. My kitchen is in a constant state of disarray. Fun times.

My latest peach creation was homemade peach ice cream. I made it the first time last week, but wasn’t quite satisfied with the results. I tweaked the recipe and came up with this version. One of the changes I made was to add more peaches, and a bit of lemon juice. We all agreed it was some of the best peach ice cream we’ve ever tasted. The almond extract is a perfect compliment to the peaches, but if you don’t have it I suppose you can use vanilla. 😉

Is there anything better on a hot summer day than homemade ice cream? I don’t think so.

Peach Ice Cream

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups cream
1 cup milk
2 1/2 cups chopped or mashed peaches
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp almond extract

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cover and chill for several hours. Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Enjoy.
Note: This made two batches in my Cuisinart.


  1. I have a 1 and a half gal freezer. How many qts does this make? I need to know so I can make to adjust to my freezer.

  2. What kind of cream? Most recipes call for heavy whipping cream.

    • I’ve used both heavy cream (36% or more fat) and whipping cream (30% fat) with good results. For ice cream, it’s a matter of preference.

    Is this recipe for an electric ice cream maker?? The old fashion kind?

  4. Found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot this afternoon since I had ripe peaches on hand. AMAZING!!! The flavor was perfect- not overwhelming, not too sweet, just perfect. This is definitely a keeper recipe and rivals our local Peachy Paterno from the Penn State Creamery. Thanks for sharing!

    What if you added some pie crust chucks to it? It sounds SSOOO good and refreshing!

  6. That sounds delish! I just bought one of those Cuisinart ice cream makers and I can’t wait to try your recipes in it! Thanks!

  7. Funny you should post this, we are going to be making ice cream with the kids at camp. My sister bought me this “ice cream ball thingy” where you put the ingredients in and throw it back and forth and that mixes the ingredients.

    I’ve had it for a couple years and keep forgetting to bring it to Girl Scout camp like I planned, so I’ll bring it to our camp instead. The grandkiddies will like it.

  8. And I was just trying to decide what kind of ice cream to make! I imagine that the almond extract makes this especially delicious!

  9. You would add sweetened condensed milk 🙂 I bet it is delish!

  10. OK, you MUST share this for tasty tuesdays. I’d love it.
