Their recipe for homemade peach ice cream also included instructions for a wonderful pecan and praline topping. This praline topping is the perfect accompaniment to the ice cream! It is called Southern Praline Sauce and it tastes fantastic, served warm over this homemade peach ice cream!

Preparing The Homemade Peach Ice Cream

The peaches are peeled, pitted, sliced and then chopped, which is about the only “difficult” thing about this recipe… ha ha! After that, cook the peaches with other ingredients, then blend and let it cool. When that is done, freeze the homemade peach ice cream to creamy perfection in an ice cream maker!

Time To Freeze The Ice Cream!

Add the ice cream mixture to an ice cream machine and process, according to manufacturer instructions. The recipe will yield approximately 1.5 quarts, for about 6 servings. Once finished, I put the semi-firm ice cream into a covered container, and place it back into my refrigerator’s freezer. This helps it freeze and firm up a little bit more (1-2 hours), for best texture!

I use a Cuisinart ice cream machine to make homemade peach ice cream.

Time To Eat!

When you are ready to serve, just scoop it right up. The homemade peach ice cream tastes really good, especially when topped with the praline sauce, which is a yummy addition of flavor!

Category: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: peach ice cream
Servings: 6 servings (1.5 qts.)

Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
  • 5 large ripe peaches , peeled, pitted, chopped
  • ¼ cup water
  • 12 ounces peach nectar (I used Kerns brand- found in juice aisle)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  1. Put the chopped peaches into a medium saucepan. Add water and canned peach nectar to the peaches. Stir to combine. Cook on medium heat until peaches have softened and cooked (about 10 minutes). Remove pan from heat. Drain off the peach juice (you can discard the leftover juice). Pour the peaches into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the granulated sugar, then let the peaches sit for awhile, so they cool back down to room temperature.

  2. Once peaches have cooled to room temp., add in sour cream, whipping cream, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Blend well, using an immersion blender, food processor, or a blender (might have to do in batches).

  3. Pour peach mixture into the canister of your ice cream freezer and freeze, according to your particular manufacturer's instructions. When done, put the ice cream in a covered container and freeze for a couple hours to firm it up a bit.
  4. OPTIONAL: If desired, serve with warm Southern Praline Sauce over the top of the ice cream (see link in post for recipe). Serve, and enjoy!

  1. I was guilty of being in a rush & just threw all the ingredients into a bowl, then saw it was supposed to be heated before adding the cream, etc. Oops! Too late! So I just blended everything together, froze it, and hoped for the best. Even with my total mess up on not following directions, it was still delicious!
