Simple Peach Ice Cream

I love when I’m reading a magazine, and I come across a recipe that I have both the time to make as well as all the ingredients, so I can make it pronto! This recipe from Martha’s Living definitely qualified. The simplest ice cream ever, with a lot of fresh fruit. I can’t wait to try it with the cherries in my freezer, too!

Simple Peach Ice Cream

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 quart frozen peaches (made from about 4-6 medium fresh peaches)

I already had frozen peaches on hand, but if you don’t, just boil fresh peaches for 30 seconds (to loosen the skins), remove from pot, and let cool until you can handle them. When ready, skin and slice the peaches, then either flash freeze them on a cookie sheet in a single layer or place in a quart baggie and freeze for at least one day.

When ready to make the ice cream, place the sweetened condensed milk and peaches in a blender (if you have frozen them in a baggie, you may want to microwave them briefly to separate, and smash them a little to help your blender out), and blend for about 1 minute. This makes a beautiful soft-serve consistency ice cream. You can return it to the freezer if you’d like something harder, but we enjoyed this ice cream right away! We thought this was a perfect end to a summer day.
