Peaches are one of the tastiest and most excellent fruits on the planet. Its sweet flavor and soft texture are irresistible. Since August is considered national peach month, there is no better way to observe it than with a creamy sweet scoop of keto peach ice cream. To make the Peach Ice Cream, we combined diced peaches, sugar-free sweetener, and cinnamon and allowed it to sit for 30 minutes until the peaches released their juices, then puréed them until they were smooth and creamy. Next, we combined heavy cream, almond milk, vanilla, salt, sugar-free sweetener, and egg yolks to make the ice cream base. The peach purée is mixed into the ice cream base, then chilled and churned in an ice cream machine.

All in all, this peach ice cream is sweet, creamy, and super delicious. It tastes like a delicious bowl of summer. The peak of peach season is almost over, so grab some fresh peaches before the end of August to make this delicious ice cream. 

Is there peach flavored ice cream?

Who invented peach ice cream?

Peach ice cream is inspired by the tremendous culinary genius Auguste Escoffier. This French chef created a new dessert for a dinner party consisting of a mesmerizing ice sculpture that sat on top of vanilla ice cream and was topped with peaches and sugar. Sometime later, in 1900, Escoffier created a new version of the dessert called Peach Melba, which consists of peaches and raspberry purée. These ingredients serve as the inspiration for peach ice cream, so in a way, Escoffier unofficially created peach ice cream.   

What does peach ice cream taste like?

Peach ice cream is sweet, creamy, and loaded with peach flavor.   

Can I freeze peaches without sugar?

Yes, you can freeze peaches without sugar. Sugar is typically added to peaches to help release their juices, preventing air pockets from forming. However, the peaches will be delicate without the sugar.

To an ice cream machine, add the ice cream base and churn it according to the manufacturer's instructions (it should take about 20-30 minutes to churn the ice cream). Place the ice cream into an airtight container. Press a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the ice cream and freeze it for 2-4 hours until it reaches your desired consistency.
