Fresh local peaches are something my family loves to eat in any form. Whether it’s in a cobbler, grilled, in a jam, or simply peeled and sliced, they’re always a favorite here.

Sometimes we’re able to find good peaches at the grocery store, but the best ones around here are usually at the farmer’s market or a roadside stand. The most recent place I’ve bought them from is The Peach Truck. Have you ever heard of them? They’re based out of Nashville and have the most beautiful and delicious peaches along with jams, salsas, and much more.

They have various booths around Nashville and also make stops around the south and east. You can order your peaches and pick them up at one of their stops our have them delivered directly to you if you’re not in the area, just like Harry & David does for pears.

For this simple peach ice cream recipe, I used my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. We bought it several years ago and really haven’t used it much at all until this year. Not sure why, but I’m so glad we’ve finally started using it. It’s so easy to use!

I made strawberry ice cream a few weeks ago with it using strawberries that my daughter picked. It was all gone before I could photograph it for a recipe post. Update: the recipe can be found here: Cuisinart Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe

Homemade Peach Ice Cream Made

Yield: 10 1/2 cup servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Additional Time: 8 hours
Total Time: 8 hours 35 minutes

This creamy, classic homemade peach ice cream will soon become one of your favorite summer treats. Using a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker means that making it will be a breeze too!


  • 3 cups sliced fresh peaches, peeled (you could also use thawed frozen peaches)
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


    NOTE – Be sure to chill the freezer bowl 8 hours or overnight

  1. In a small bowl, combine the peaches with the lemon juice and 1/2 cup of sugar. Gently stir and allow the peaches to soak in the juices for 2 hours. Strain the peaches, reserving the juices. Mash or puree half of the peach slices.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed to combine the milk and remaining sugar until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 or 2 minutes. Stir in the the heavy cream, reserved peach juices, mashed peach slices, and vanilla.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours or overnight. I recommend this container that has thousands of 5 start reviews: Homemade Ice Cream Freezer Tub
  4. Turn on the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, pour the mixture into the freezer bowl, and let mix until thickened, about 20 to 25 minutes. Five minutes before mixing is completed, add the reserved sliced peaches and let mix incompletely. The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture.


If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in the freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 10 minutes before serving.

  1. I am so excited to try this recipe. I absolutely adore the peach milkshakes at Chik Fil A but this seems so much more healthful (in moderation :). Thank you so much for your recent visit to my blog. I apologize for my slow response. I have been completing a large home improvement project. You have such a lovely blog. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Plan on trying this tomorrow. Have some frozen peaches left over from summer. Glad to see a recipe that doesn't have to be cooked. However, a question: Shouldn't you chop the peaches up a bit? Thank you.

  3. When checking out the ingrediants for tho=is Gergia Peach ice cream. The only fruit listed was strawberries so I'm a little confused. Are we supposed to substitute peaches because they are a very different type of fruit to work with esppecially because of the juiciness. This recipe sounds great, but I wold appreciate some help.
    Thanks, Duane

    1. Hi Duane,

      I'm sorry about that. I updated all of my recipes recently to make them printable and it looks like I made an error! I've corrected it and everything is listed as it should be now. Thanks for letting me know.


  4. I made this Peach Ice Cream recipe
    last night using my 2 qt. Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. It was my first time
    using this machine. The mixture was at least a couple of inches below the rim (machine instructions said to
    leave at least 1/2″ space from the
    rim), it started overflowing about 5
    minutes before the machine was
    done. I turned it off and cleaned up what little bit had overflowed. Once I did that, I poured the rest into a
    container and let everyone have their ice cream. It was very much a soft
    serve consistency. Although the
    peaches were ripe, I couldn’t taste a whole lot of peach flavor. I can taste the peaches better today. Maybe it
    needed to let the flavor seep into ice cream. It was delicious, but I’ll be
    sure to only fill the container no more than halfway next time.

  5. Made the Peach Ice Cream Recipe this morning. Here are a few observations and comments:
    – Peaches are juicy. Their released liquid can change a recipe. I didn’t see any notes regarding the Cuisinart capacity. Two links return the 1.5 qt model. The ingredient volume once it begins to freeze exceeds the machines limit (Note P Knight’s comments above using the 2.0 qt. mode). I was unable to add the reserved sliced peaches to the machine for the last five minutes and had to incorporate them into the frozen mix in a bowl. Recommend rewrite of recipe or freezing in two batches.
    – I lightly mashed the reserved peaches to a chunky size to improve distribution.
    – Two Tablespoons of Brandy was added to improve frozen scoopability.

    P Knight – All ice cream made in the Cuisinart machines is soft at the end. Move the finished product to a container(s), place in freezer for a bit. Also, letting the mixed ingredients ripen in the fridge overnight prior to freezing will improve flavor. Works for all flavors. This recipe makes a well flavored ice cream.
