Peaches are in season – FINALLY!! That means lots of juice dripping down fingers as you bite into a sweet ripe peach. It means slices of peaches for cobbler or tarts. It also means Peach Ice Cream.


    2 cups 1/2 and 1/2
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cups nonfat dry milk
    3 cups peeled, pitted sliced peaches, or 1 16oz frozen sliced peaches, defrosted
    3 Tbs lemon juice
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    dash salt

Combine 1/2 and 1/2, sugar, and dry milk in a blender or food processor and process unti smooth.
Add peaches with remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
Chill in the fridge until ready to freeze. Blend mixture for a few seconds before pouring into the ice cream maker.
Follow the manufacturere’s instructions for freezing.

If you like lots of peach flavor in your ice cream then this ice cream is perfect for you. I even added in a few chunks of peach to the mix just before it was finished churning. Perfect!!
