Happy Monday! Today, June 17th is National Peach Ice Cream day! Now I must share something you probably don’t know about me: I despise peaches. Canned, fresh, frozen, blech. I will drink them in a smoothie and eat them in some ice cream. I know, I know, i’m weird. The real reason I don’t like peach is because I may have overdone it on those gummy peach rings and a certain cocktail about the beach that has peach schnapps in it. Im sure you all have something you don’t like to eat that seems normal to others!
Today, I have worked on a recipe for a fresh peach ice cream you are sure to love, even if i don’t!
4 cups peeled, diced fresh peaches (about 8 small ripe peaches)
1 cup sugar
1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
1 (3.75-ounce) package vanilla instant pudding mix
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
4 cups half-and-half
How to Make It
Combine peaches and sugar, and let stand 1 hour.
Process peach mixture in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides.
Stir together evaporated milk and pudding mix in a large bowl; stir in peach puree, condensed milk, and half-and-half.
Pour mixture into freezer container of a 4-quart hand-turned or electric freezer; freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Spoon into an airtight container, and freeze until firm.
