  • 3 cups fresh or frozen peaches sliced
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar divided
  • 1-1/4 cups whole milk
  • 2-3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


  • In a small bowl, combine the peaches with the lemon juice and 1/2 cup of the sugar. Stir until combined and set aside for at least two hours.
  • Strain the peaches through a colander and reserve any juice. If you like big chunks of peaches in your ice cream, set aside half of the peaches and chop into smaller pieces. Puree the rest.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together milk and remaining sugar just until sugar is dissolved.
  • Add the heavy cream, reserved peach juice, pureed peaches and vanilla.
  • Pour mixture into a prepared ice cream maker. Churn according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • About five minutes before mixing is completed, add the remaining chopped peaches.
  • You can eat the ice cream at this point. However, if you would like a firmer consistency, transfer the ice cream to an airtight freezer container and freeze for about two hours.
