Grilled Peach Ice Cream

Grilled Peach Ice Cream

National Ice Cream Month {July} might be over but the ice cream enjoyment isn’t ; ) It’s still sweltering hot here in the South East and we can’t get enough ice cream. Period. Being originally from Georgia I adore peaches in all forms. When they’re sweet and ripe there is nothing better. For this recipe we’ve drizzled them with extra virgin olive oil, topped them with a tad of turbinado sugar and then grilled them to an even sweeter perfection before pairing them with a homemade ice cream!

What you’ll need:

  • 3 ripe peaches – halved, pits removed
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
  • 3 cups skim milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar

What to do:

1. Drizzle peaches with olive oil. Sprinkle turbinado sugar onto cut side of peaches. Place peaches onto a hot grill pan and grill for approximately 2-3 minutes each side. Set aside to cool.

2. Into a large sauce pan add: milk, heavy whipping cream. Once mixture begins to boil remove from heat. Add vanilla extract. Stir to combine.

3. Into your mixer’s bowl add: egg yolks, sugar. Mix until mixture is light and fluffy.

4. SLOWLY add egg mixture to warm milk mixture. Whisk together to combine as you’re adding egg mixture. Allow to cool slightly. Transfer to refrigerator to cool completely.

5. WHILE ice cream base is cooling, remove skins from peaches and discard. Using a blender, immersion blender or food processor, pulse until mixture is pureed. Place mixture into refrigerator to chill.

6. Add 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of the grilled peach puree to your ice cream base. Stir to combine. Transfer mixture to your ice cream maker and make according to machine directions.
