Eggless & Easy Peach Ice Cream
I’ve had a lot of folks ask for ice cream recipes lately so today I wanted to bring you one of the easiest ones around, with only three ingredients! The great thing about this ice cream is how incredibly low maintenance and customizable it is. Add in your favorite flavored carbonated drink and fruit of your choice (or leave the fruit out entirely), mix it all up with the other ingredient and you’re off to the races!
Do you have a favorite ice cream recipe? I’d love for you to share it in the comments section below! Don’t have a recipe to share? Chat with us anyway, you’re part of the family!
I’m cooking up a storm in the kitchen today. Next week I plan on bringing you an entire menu for the 4th of July that doesn’t require an oven OR a grill. Until then though, I sure am looking forward to your ice cream recipes so be sure and post them below and I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
Now y’all bear with me as I venture into unchartered territory for myself. I am going to try to say the word “soda”. I never say that word. I’ve never used that word. I have always said “coke” to refer to any carbonated beverage. But today, I am going to do my bestest best to say “Soda” just for you. ~takes a deep breath~ Soda. There.
You’ll need: sweetened condensed milk, canned or fresh fruit (your choice and optional), and a two liter of some type of flavored Soda (such as peach, strawberry, orange, lemon lime, grape, etc).
Check out the generic sweetened condensed milk, that’s Dollar General’s store brand. Saved me over fifty cents per can, too! Ain’t no shame in my game!
If you are going to be adding fruit, drain it if it is in a can and place in blender.
Chop it up a bit. Okay so this looks more like Puree but you get my point. Just do something so folks who eat your ice cream don’t find half a peach hanging out of their mouth. Then pour that in a bowl.
Now we’re gonna mix up our sweetened condensed milk and soda (I am cringing every time I type that, just so ya know. It sounds so very foreign to me). Notice that I didn’t clean the blender out after I chopped up my fruit. No sense in it since we’re just about to mix it all up again anyway.
Just pulse that a bit until it is mixed well.
Here is your warning: Make sure to leave plenty of head room when doing this in your blender. That peach coke (sorry, couldn’t bring myself to keep saying soda) is gonna put a lot of pressure on things with the carbonation and if you have your blender too full the pressure will build AS SOON AS you hit that button and you will have QUITE a mess. A very STICKY mess that will take you ten forevers to clean up.
Don’t ask me how I know this…
Pour your mixture into the tank thingiemabobber of your ice cream machine. Stir in your fruit.
Add just enough of the leftover coke to bring it to the fill line.
Depending on how much fruit you add you may not be able to add a lot of coke or you may end up adding the remainder of it. I added all but about four ounces.
Make sure you don’t fill ABOVE the fill line marked on your whoosiewhatsit.
This is a picture of the fill line marking on my whosiewhatsit
Place your paddle stirrer thingiemabobber into the whosiewhatsit.
Put your lid on it and then fill the sides of your ice cream maker with alternate layers of ice and a sprinkling of rock salt.
See your maker’s instructions on exactly how much to add.
Put the top on and plug that sucker up!
I put mine in a big old dishpan and just put it out in the sunroom because it was too hot outside and I didn’t want to melt my one remaining brain cell.
You’ll need to keep adding ice as it melts down and let it run for about an hour or so. once it gets to looking like this, you can go ahead and take it out or let it run a little longer.
I’m gonna go ahead and take it out because I have the patience of a gnat.
It’s still gonna be soft but you can eat it right away if you like!
Take whatever you are not going to eat right now and put it in freezer safe containers.
Freeze overnight to get it good and hardened (like what you’re used to from stores). YUM!!!
Crown pleasin’ and easy peasy!
