Ingredients

  • 3 peaches peeled and chopped (need 2 cups of diced peaches)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream whipped

Instructions

  • Peel the peaches and dice them. In a small bowl, combine the chopped peaches with sugar and water and mash. You can use a fork if the peaches are really soft, or you can do what I did and use a potato masher - it worked great! You don't want to completely mash them, especially if you want some larger pieces of peaches in your ice cream.
  • Once the peaches are mashed, drain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer, reserving the juice. I strained the mixture several times to get most of the moisture out of it. You should have 3/4 cup of juice, but if you have a little bit less than that, add a little bit of water to bring the liquid to 3/4 cup. I usually have a little bit more, so I have to dump the extra juice out!
  • Combine the mashed peaches, the reserved juice and the sweetened condensed milk and mix with a spoon just until combined. Pour into a shallow pan - I use an 8X8 square pan. The shallower the pan, the faster the mixture will freeze. Freeze until firm - at least 3-4 hours.
  • Break the frozen mixture into chunks and place in a bowl for about 10-15 minutes to soften a little bit. Use an electric mixer to beat the mixture for several minutes. Whip a cup of whipping cream and fold it into the peach mixture. Pour back into the pan to freeze until firm before scooping and serving.
