"MY DAD was the ice cream maker at our house. We had an old-fashioned freezer that had to be cranked by hand, and he took great delight in turning the handle until the ice cream was just right! With the addition of fresh fruit that he picked in a nearby orchard, this was a very special treat."
"Since moving to an area where fresh peaches are plentiful, I've made this frosty treat frequently," writes Mary Dixson of Decatur, Alabama. "It's the perfect light dessert. Calorie-conscious guests always say 'yes' to this when they might decline a slice of cake or pie."
THIS pretty dessert is an impressive end to any meal. Refreshing and light, it's just the right touch for every sweet tooth.
I saw it pictured in a magazine many years ago and decided to try it. It's always been a hit at my house.

I get "oohs" and "aahs" when setting out this cool, fruity dessert. It combines my three all-time favorites-peaches, strawberries and ice cream. It's so simple I can assemble it for company after we all finish the main course.
This recipe makes a cool, refreshing end to any meal. The tang of orange and lemon juice blends nicely with the honey. It's great for anyone who is on a restricted diet, and those who aren't won't know the difference.—Dorothy Smith, El Dorado, Arkansas
South Carolina is one of the leading producers of peaches. Luckily, we live only 3 miles from a large peach orchard. This ice cream is one of my most popular uses for the luscious fruit. We can hardly wait for the harvest so we can enjoy it.
When peaches are in season, this recipe is at the top of my list to make. The pureed fruit lends a fresh flavor to the silky-smooth ice cream. You'll have to make it more than once, though, because the first batch never lasts long!
"When peaches are in season, we order them by the bushel," says Stephanie Nohr of Cornell, Wisconsin. "This quick and creamy frozen treat has wonderful fresh fruit flavor. It's a big hit with everyone in my family."
