The quintessential summer flavor combination of peaches and cream has been transformed into cold and creamy scoops of peaches and cream ice cream and it is everything I imagined it would be.

I found myself repeatedly going back to the freezer for “just one more taste, you know, to make sure it’s perfect” the first time I made this ice cream. Spoiler alert, yes, it’s perfect.

This cobbler led me to a dream of creamy vanilla ice cream filled with chunks of peach cobbler. Luckily that dream came true in my kitchen and it turned out to be everything I’d imagined. Peach Cobbler Ice Cream has proven to be irresistible.

There is something almost magical about the way that roasting the peaches brings out additional flavor in this Honey Roasted Peach Frozen Yogurt.

Peach ice creams have proven to be some of my favorite ice creams to make each summer and fall, just as soon as the peaches turn fragrant and sweet.

Homemade Peach Ice Cream

While an ice cream with chunks of peaches may sound delicious, in actuality, frozen chunks of fruit in ice cream turn icy and hard most of the time.

This peaches and cream ice cream works so well because you’re going to make a quick peach sauce and then swirl it into creamy vanilla ice cream. The result is a swirled sweet peach ice cream with tender chunks of frozen peaches that are perfect in every bite.

To make the peach sauce, combine peaches, sugar, and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously while the sugar melts and the mixture comes to a boil.

Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking for about 8-10 minutes, until the peaches are soft. Use a wooden spoon to smash the fruit a bit as it is cooking.

Remove from the heat and cool completely before dividing the sauce in half and placing both portions in the refrigerator to chill until needed.

Peach Ice Cream Recipe

Whisk together the cream, milk, sugar, salt, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Pour into the ice cream machine and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.

Scoop the churned ice cream into a freezer container, adding a spoonful or two of the chilled peach sauce along with each scoop of the ice cream.

Swirl lightly with a knife and place in the freezer until ready to serve. Serve with the remaining peach sauce on top.
