My peach tree had SO many peaches this year and I was able to share a bunch with friends and family and I still had plenty left to use for some sweet treats. Last weekend, I made two different kinds of peach ice cream. I made this sherbet recipe, which only has three-ingredients and then I made another recipe that had a lot of ingredients and required cooking, chilling and freezing in an ice cream maker.
AND, this three-ingredient, no-churn, recipe was better than that labor-intensive recipe that had no peach flavor. Can you believe that?
This sherbet is my current obsession. It has so much peach flavor and it's the easiest recipe to make. All you need is ripe, delicious, peaches and a can of sweetened condensed milk. I also like to add a little vanilla for added flavor, but that's optional. Anyway, peel and slice the peaches, freeze until firm, then throw them in a powerful blender or food processor and blend with the sweetened condensed milk until smooth and creamy. You can either eat it right away and it will be like soft-serve or you can freeze until firm. I made another batch of this last night, because I love it so much.
