Easy 2 Ingredient Homemade Peach Ice Cream

Both Peaches and ice cream are summer staples that taste delicious on their own.

Paired together, they become a masterpiece for the tastebuds.

It’s hard to believe this homemade peach ice cream recipe contains only two ingredients … or that something so flavorful could be a healthy dessert you will want to make again and again..

Even though this recipe is both dairy- and sugar-free, the fresh taste of summer shines through. And almost as good as the taste of this frozen treat is the fact that there’s no reason to feel guilty about indulging yourself.

Homemade Peach Ice Cream


Peaches are in the stone fruit family along with nectarines, cherries, and plums. Stone fruits earn that name from their hard, inner seeds, and fruit in this family can’t be stored long before bruising and rotting.

That’s why freezing peaches is a brilliant idea, as it allows you to capture their fresh, juicy, and delicious flavor so you can enjoy them any time.

When it comes to nutrients, peaches are a powerhouse.

They provide an excellent source of beta carotene, which your body converts to vitamin A and is crucial to the health of our eyes and skin.

Peaches also contain a high level of antioxidants, which protect the body from cancer and other chronic diseases. A 2014 study found that the polyphenolics in peaches inhibit tumor growth in breast cancer cells. The authors suggest eating two to three peaches a day to take full advantage of these amazing benefits (1).

Peaches also pack a great deal of vitamin C, which boosts immunity and maintains elasticity of the skin.

That being said, if you want variety, you can switch out the peaches with another fruit. Mangos, strawberries, raspberries, and frozen bananas would make delicious swaps in this recipe.
