Peach-Bourbon No-Churn Ice Cream is a frozen treat to celebrate peach season! This no-churn peach ice cream is a breeze to make and a perfect dessert for the lazy days of summer!
No ice cream maker required for this recipe, just a mixer and a metal loaf pan that helps the ice cream mixture chill faster and makes scooping easy with the long surface area.
I experimented with this peach ice cream recipe last summer. I took my cue from my Skillet Bourbon, Peach and Blueberry Crumble, and added bourbon for a depth of flavor and a caramel/vanilla note to the peach mixture. There’s only a small amount of bourbon, 2 – 4 tablespoons, depending on your taste. You can omit the bourbon if you prefer, but I highly recommend it.
Ginger Snap cookie crumbs add some texture and crunch, along with a spicy molasses flavor, to pair with the peach and bourbon.
No-Churn Peach-Bourbon-Ginger Snap Ice Cream
Makes about 2 quarts
14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
4 large *peaches, peeled, diced/coarsely chopped
*Optional: 1/3 – 1/2 cup sugar (Freezing tempers the sweetness of your ice cream, so add some sugar to your mixture to bump up the flavor depending on the sweetness of your peaches.)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Bourbon, 2 – 4 tablespoons, to taste, (I used 4T)
Pinch fine salt
2 cups heavy cream, cold
1 cup ginger snap cookie crumbs, plus more for sprinkling on top and ginger snap cookies for serving
Place metal loaf pan in freezer.
Whisk together condensed milk, vanilla, bourbon, salt in a large bowl; stir in peaches, set aside. (Add in 1/2 cup of sugar if needed depending on sweetness of peaches.)
Whip the cream with a mixer on medium-high speed until firm peaks form, about 2 minutes. Fold in whipped cream into the milk/peach mixture with spatula until combined, then swirl in ginger snap crumbs throughout mixture. Pour into a chilled 9-by-5-by-3-inch metal loaf pan, sprinkle top with additional cookie crumbs and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze, 8 hours or overnight until solid and scoopable.
