  • peaches (I used fresh)
  • heavy cream
  • sweetened condensed milk
  • peach brandy (optional)
  • pure vanilla extract
  • pecans, chopped (optional)

Kitchen tools and equipment needed:

Will canned peaches work for this recipe?

Yes!

Just make sure to drain the peaches well first before adding them into the ice cream mixture.

Can the nuts be omitted from this recipe?

Sure!

If you’re not a fan of nuts (for any reason), or if you’d like to substitute another nut for the pecans, please feel free to adjust this recipe however you like.

Tips for making the best creamy no-churn ice cream:

  • Make sure to freeze the beaters and bowl before whipping the cream.
  • Keep the sweetened condensed milk in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before whipping.
  • A splash of alcohol (in this case it’s peach brandy) will keep ice crystals from forming and will help to keep the no-churn ice cream creamier.
  • When adding fruit or nuts, gently fold the ingredients into the beaten whipped cream making sure the volume of the whipped cream stays at its fullest.

Can the alcohol be left out of this recipe?

Yes, for sure!

If you’re feeding this to children or anyone else where alcohol isn’t welcome, by all means, leave it out!

It really won’t effect the flavor all that much by leaving the alcohol out, but the texture may be a little less creamy.

Should the peaches be peeled before making this ice cream?

It’s totally your call. I did not remove the skins.

However, if you’d like to do so, that’s completely your call.

What is the best way to store peaches?

How long to freeze peach and pecan ice cream:

Cover with plastic wrap and freeze at least 4 hours.

For the best serving texture, allow the ice cream to sit at room temperature at least 10-15 minutes before serving.

How to make no-churn peach and pecan ice cream:

  • Stone and roughly chop 4-5 ripe peaches (peeling is optional). Set aside.
  • Whip 2 cups of heavy cream in a chilled bowl with chilled beaters until soft peaks form.
  • Beat in the chilled sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and peach brandy (optional).
  • Gently fold in the chopped peaches.
  • Layer the ice cream mixture into mason jars along with chopped pecans (optional), or pour the ice cream mixture into a loaf pan and top with chopped pecans (optional).
  • Cover with plastic wrap and freeze at least 4 hours.
  • Allow the ice cream to sit for 10-15 minutes at room temperature before serving.
  • Enjoy!
