Peach Ice Cream Recipe

Adding peaches to a mouthwatering vanilla ice cream recipe I got from my mother-in-law resulted in this fabulous flavor. My boys say it's the greatest and think it tastes best served outdoors under a shade tree!—Lisa Tenbarge, Haubstadt, Indiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Process: 20 min. + freezing YIELD:5 servings


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3-1/3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped fresh or frozen peaches, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, milk and egg. Cook over low heat until mixture is just thick enough to coat a metal spoon and a thermometer reads at least 160°, stirring constantly. Do not allow to boil. Remove from heat immediately.
  • 2. Quickly transfer to a large bowl; place bowl in a pan of ice water. Stir gently and occasionally for 2 minutes. Press plastic wrap onto surface of custard. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  • 3. Stir in cream, pudding mix, peaches and vanilla into custard. Fill cylinder of an ice cream freezer two-thirds full. Freeze according to manufacturer's directions. (Refrigerate any remaining mixture until ready to freeze.) Transfer ice cream to freezer containers, allowing headspace for expansion. Freeze 2-4 hours or until firm. Repeat with any remaining ice cream mixture. Yield: 1-1/4 quarts.

"Delicious peach ice cream! I used fat free half and half in place of most of the whipping cream. Also made it with 1/3 cup chocolate syrup in place of the peaches, Very good!"
