This Peach Ice Cream seriously rivals any peach ice cream I’ve ever tasted. Like, evvvvv-er.

Creamy, rich, luscious, and perfectly peachy, this is definitely my family’s favorite recipe for homemade peach ice cream. I think it has to do with just a few little tricks I’ve found that make it juuuuust right in my book.

Roast the peaches.

Oh yes,  it makes a difference. At least I think it does.

The peaches take on a deeper, richer flavor and become even sweeter, in my opinion. By roasting them, it also makes the pieces of peach easier to eat in the ice cream.

You’ll want to roast them a while before you plan to make your ice cream so that they’ve had time to cool completely before you add to the ice cream mixture.

Maple Syrup.

Yep, I add maple syrup to my peach ice cream. I think it deepens the flavor even more of the ice cream without tasting like you’ve added maple syrup to your peach ice cream.

Confused yet?

What I mean is, I add just enough maple syrup to enhance the flavor of the peaches without adding so much that you really taste maple syrup.

Those two little tricks make all the difference for my peach ice cream recipe, I think.

Since fresh peaches are in season at the moment, it is the perfect time to make a batch.

      1. I some peach slices that I froze during peach season this year. Could those be roasted for the ice cream. Also, I love your old fashioned vanilla ice cream (custard base). Any reason why I couldn’t use that base to make the peach ice cream? Thanks!

      2. LuAnne, let the peaches thaw before roasting but they should be fine in this ice cream. You could use the old fashioned ice cream base to make the peach ice cream if you want. Hope you enjoy!

  1. I’ve been lurking on your site for awhile now and I’m REALLY enjoying reading your recipes and stories. I just gotta tell ya that this recipe has me drooling! I gotta try this ASAP! I noticed you didn’t mention using an ice cream maker. Can I just use a plastic container? Thanx for your response.

  2. LOL! NOW, I see where it reads ice cream maker. Your recipe’s making me go blind. I better read the instructions a few times BEFORE making this ice cream.

  3. Hi! Do the peaches need to be real ripe? I want to try it but my peaches are a few days away from just biting into.

    1. Hi Emma,
      Since you’ll be roasting your peaches, they’ll be more forgiving if they aren’t really ripe yet. Of course, the riper the better! Hope that helps!

  4. Very tastey but not as peachy as I’d like. Smooth ice cream no crystals but I felt it was more maple ice cream with peaches. Maybe a hint of almond extract since that works well with stone fruit trying to date recipe and it only will take 4 stars I honestly give 4 stars for the ice cream but 2 stars for it being called peach ice cream

  5. Without eggs, is it really creamy enough? How to avoid crystallizing otherwise? Would love your thoughts – friend gave me lots of peaches yesterday – want to make it today! Thanks

    1. Hi Barbara,
      This ice cream is really creamy without the eggs. If you are looking for a custard type ice cream, try my Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream recipe and add the roasted peaches to it. To prevent crystallization, place plastic tightly on top of the ice cream and store in an airtight container. Hope this helps and you enjoy your ice cream!

    1. As I state in the instructions of the recipe under the section For the roasted peaches, you will peel the peaches after they have been roasted and cooled. I hope you enjoy the ice cream, Abbey.

  6. The roasted peaches are a great addition to this delicious ice cream. If you’re using an indoor electric ice cream freezer, adjust the quantities to suit your machine.
