4 Ingredient Vegan Peach Ice Cream
If you’re looking for a healthy and delicious dairy-free frozen dessert, you’ll love this Vegan Peach Ice Cream recipe. You only need four ingredients. Make this recipe even if you don’t have an ice cream maker!
One of the best moments of summer is when all of the stone fruits come into season. There is just something so wonderful about having peaches, plums, melons, and berries all so readily available.
Now, of course, we are so lucky that we can buy frozen fruit all year round, so we don’t have to wait just for summer for these wonderful fruits. But, again, there is just something special about a fresh, ripe stone fruit that literally drips down your arm as you eat it.
If you are looking to make this recipe when peaches aren’t in season, though, you can use frozen peaches.
Making dairy-free ice cream is actually much easier than you might think. There are lots of foods that can replace dairy, including:
- coconut milk,
- soy milk,
- and more!
My preferred base when making homemade vegan ice cream is full-fat coconut milk. I think it provides the ideal mouthfeel and richness that is so reminiscent of regular ice cream. See my reasons for going dairy-free.
So, for this easy 4 ingredients recipe, I used: coconut milk as the base, with the addition of fresh peaches, maple syrup (or dates), and vanilla extract. And, you can use either white peaches or yellow peaches for this recipe.
White peaches tend to be naturally sweeter, but yellow peaches offer a nice bit of acidity that works well for this recipe. You can use either type, though.
Choosing your coconut milk can be a little tricky. One brand I recommend is Native Forest because it’s free of guar gum.
Getting back to this recipe, you can make homemade peach ice cream in just a few steps (be sure to check out my post on how to make homemade ice cream without a machine if that applies to you).
Gather your ingredients.
Blend the peaches, coconut milk, maple syrup, and vanilla. You can use a cup of pitted dates if you prefer them over maple syrup.
Churn the peach ice cream mixture in an ice cream maker (or use the freezer method if you don’t have an ice cream maker).
Freeze the mixture until the ice cream reaches the desired consistency.
Serve and enjoy!
I could tell by the color that this recipe was going to be great. And you won’t believe how delightful the peach smell is too! This is one of my favorite ice cream recipes so far, it turned out so creamy and bursting with peach flavor.
What brand of ice cream maker do you use?
I got a Cuisinart ice cream maker at my bridal shower years and years ago and it has served me well.
Can I use frozen peaches in this recipe?
Yes, you can. I suggest measuring out 2 cups of frozen peach slices. Also, I wouldn’t chill the coconut milk if you are going to use frozen peaches.
