This Easy Peach Ice Cream is the perfect dessert for summer. It's cold and refreshing, creamy and delicious, and super easy to make!
For those of you who love peach desserts, this is perfect because it's full of peach flavor! In fact, since there are only three ingredients in this recipe, the peaches really stand out. It's peaches and cream in ice cream form.
One of my favorite things about this easy peach ice cream recipe is that it doubles as an activity for the kids too. Seriously, after you've made it together the first time, it's so easy, they can make it themselves.
In fact, I'll break down the recipe to show you in-process steps to make it even easier for your kids to follow. Just pull up the recipe on a phone or tablet and prop it up on the counter!
How to Make Easy Peach Ice Cream
You won't believe how easy this dessert is to make. Even better, you don't need any special equipment so no need to buy another appliance that will take up space in your cabinets!
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
To make this peach ice cream, you just need three simple ingredients: sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, and peach pie filling. You can also add a dash of vanilla extract if you want, but it's not necessary.
Step 2: Beat the Cream
This is the step my kids enjoy the most. It's fascinating to watch liquid heavy cream transform into whipped cream!
Step 3: Combine the Cream and Sweetened Condensed Milk
After the cream is nice and thick, but still fluffy (don't turn it into butter!), fold a cup of it into a bowl with the sweetened condensed milk. If you want to add a teaspoon of vanilla, you would add it here.
Mix the whipped cream and condensed milk gently until it's well combined and smooth. Don't mix too vigorously or you'll lose some of the fluffiness of the whipped cream.
It should look like this when you're done:
Step 4: Add the Peaches
Now it's time to gently fold in the peach pie filling. Pour the peaches into the cream mixture, then gently fold in to combine.
Step 5: Pour it in Pan to Freeze
All we have to do now is pour it in a pan and pop it in the freezer!
If you're very patient, you can freeze it long enough so that it sets quite firm and cut it into slices. We don't ever seem to last that long though so it's pretty soft and easy to scoop into small bowls.
