How to make homemade peach ice cream?
Start the night before you want to make your ice cream by putting your ice cream maker bowl in the freezer. You’ll want to freeze it for 12 hours or more.
When you’re ready to make your ice cream mixture, peel your peaches, remove the pit, and dice them up into small pieces. Mix the peaches with 1/2 cup of your sugar in a medium sized bowl to let the peaches release their juices and help sweeten them up.
Blend the peaches up in a blender or food processor till they are smooth. If you need more liquid for your blender, add in part of your whole milk.
Pour the blended peaches, heavy cream, milk, and vanilla extract in a large bowl and stir them all together till creamy. Pour the ice cream mixture into your prepared ice cream maker and allow to run according to manufactures instructions.
Serve immediately for super soft ice cream (kind of like a shake) or scoop the ice cream into a 9×5 pan and cover with plastic wrap. Place the ice cream in the freezer for 6 hours, up to overnight.
