Alton Brown Peach Ice Cream Recipe

We are in full peach season here in Georgia and they are delicious in this easy peach ice cream recipe! I have been buying them every week at the local farmers market and the kids are eating several a day. When you need a summer dessert, fresh fruit is delicious. However, turn it into homemade ice cream and it tastes even better!

We made this Alton Brown Peach Ice Cream Recipe in our ice cream maker and it was delicious (If you love Alton Brown’s recipes, try my Alton Brown copycat cheese grits recipe!). Use it on top of pound cake with fresh peaches and whipped cream for a delicious summer dessert recipe.

Easy Peach Icecream Recipe


My husband (wonderful man that he is!) decided to try making Peach Ice cream with the ice cream maker that hasn’t seen the light of day since I found it at a garage sale 15 years ago! Ours looks exactly like the one pictured here.

You freeze the inner bowl, then dump in the chilled cream mixture (see recipe below) and then hand crank occasionally for 20 minutes.

Voila! Instant homemade ice cream which has nothing in it that you can’t pronounce! If you are looking for more icecream recipes, try my homemade vanilla icecream.

The ice cream recipe we used came from the Alton Brown Good Eats cookbook which we absolutely LOVE. You should watch his Good Eats show on the food channel…you will lean all about the science behind cooking!

He is a big proponent of weighing all your ingredients so you will need a kitchen scale to do this but the mixture can be made ahead of time and then added to the frozen inner bowl right before you want to eat it.

I’m sure any kind of ice cream maker would do, just follow the manufacturer’s instructions! We modified the recipe slightly but here is what we did:
