Summertime is peach season and there is nothing quite as delicious as fresh peaches made into homemade peach ice cream. I like to make this recipe at home, BUT also when picnicking and when we go camping with an ice cream ball. I’ll share with you three ways to make this ice cream recipe; ice cream maker, ice cream ball, and two bag method. That you can make and enjoy this easy peach ice cream anywhere too!
Homemade Peach Ice Cream
You can’t beat a bowl of ice cream on a hot summer day. This recipe tastes a little like peach cobbler with the addition of vanilla extract and maple syrup. Instead of sugar, the maple syrup adds sweetness and a great flavor you normally find in peach cobbler. There is no crust in this recipe, but you can add crumbled vanilla cookies if you like. We love this peach ice cream just the way it is.
There is no cobbler crust in this homemade ice cream recipe, but you can easily add in a few crumbled vanilla wafers, graham crackers, baked pie crust, in the ice cream base during mixing or sprinkled on top after fully frozen.
How to Make Homemade Peach Ice Cream
This homemade ice cream recipe is an easy one. You simply combine the ingredients and freeze. There is no cooking involved.
Ice Cream Maker Ball Method
This is our ice cream maker ball. This hard plastic ball has a metal insert that makes a pint of ice cream at a time. You pour your ice cream base in one side, then add ice cubes and rock salt to the other. It requires no electricity, so it is perfect to use outside in the backyard, on a picnic, or when camping.
To churn the ice cream, you shake, roll, and/or pass the ice cream ball around. My kids have a blast making ice cream this way. You can find this ice cream ball at Walmart.
Two Bag Ice Cream Method
As cool as my ice cream ball is, you don’t need an ice cream maker for this or any other ice cream recipe. You can use two plastic freezer bags to get the same effect. To make ice cream this way, fill one-quart sized freezer bag with the ice cream base. Seal the bag and place it into a gallon-sized freezer bag. Add ice cubes and rock salt to the gallon-sized bag. Seal the bag and shake until the ice cream mixture is firm and ready to eat.
Ice Cream Maker Method
If you have an ice cream maker, simply follow the manufacturer instructions for your model. I recently upgraded my older 4 quart ice cream maker to this Cuisinart 2 Quart Ice Cream Maker that doesn’t need ice or rock salt. This recipe makes 1 pint, so if you are using this method to make ice cream, you may want to double the recipe for 1 quart or quadruple for 2 quarts.
