We’ve been experiencing an unexpected heat wave lately in Montana. It’s been well into the nineties almost every single day, and to be honest, we’re just not used to that kind of heat here!

I feel pretty lucky since we have a nice cool basement to sleep in whenever the upstairs is unbearable. And we’ve been grilling pretty much everything, as well as making ice cream and nice cream on the double.

This peach nice cream has been on repeat lately. It’s so refreshing and pretty much health food. To be technical, it’s actually a sorbet because it’s made almost entirely from fruit. But nice cream is a relatively new term that describes a dairy free frozen treat made mostly from fruit, and I love the way it sounds.

The peachy flavor of this nice cream is enhanced with a touch of cinnamon and lemon juice to brighten the flavors. I also like to add a little maple syrup because we rarely get 100% ripe peaches here. If your peaches are bursting with sweetness, you may not need it at all.

And speaking of peaches, this recipe relies completely on the flavor of your fruit. So they need to be as flavorful as possible, or the nice cream will be bland.

I like to use my food processor for fruit based nice creams. This is mostly because my Vitamix is out of warranty now, and I’m scared to do anything to hurt it. I know lots of people make nice cream in their high powered blender and don’t have any problems. I’m just being a baby and overly cautious.

Either way you go, you’ll have super smooth nice cream, although with the food processor, you need to stop and break up the chunks of fruit a few times during the processing.

After it’s done, it will be the texture of soft serve. You can serve it right away, or place it in a container, and freeze for 3-4 more hours. For the best texture, stir the nice cream every 30 minutes or so.

We’re peach fanatics around here, so we like to top our peach nice cream with more peaches. You can also make my Fresh Peach Topping for the ultimate peach on peach combination!

5 Minute Soft Serve Peach Nice Cream


  • Author: Get Inspired Everyday!
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: about 3 cups

Ingredients

  • 4 cups diced peaches, frozen
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vietnamese cinnamon
  • 2-3 Tablespoons maple syrup, optional to taste

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients into a food processor or high powered blender.
  2. For the food processor, process until the fruit starts to stick into clumps. Then stop to break up the fruit chunks and repeat this process until the nice cream is completely smooth, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. For a blender, start at low speed and use the tamper to keep the mixture moving increasing the speed as you go, and adding water only if necessary. When I have made nice cream in my blender, I start on low and end at about speed 5-6 on a Vitamix.
  4. Serve the nice cream immediately, or you can freeze it for 3-4 hours for a firmer texture.To keep the smoothest texture, stir the nice cream every 30 minutes to prevent it from forming too big of ice crystals as it freezes, which is what will make it icy.

    1. You should be able to do that, I would blend all the ingredients until smooth, (with defrosted or fresh peaches) then add it to the machine and freeze like ice cream. Also depending on what kind of blender you have, if the blended peach mixture isn’t perfectly smooth, you can always pour it through a fine mesh sieve. I sure hope you enjoy it!

  1. Hi Kari- I made this last for a group of 8 in my Vitamix. It was easy and excellent! The cinnamon made a big impression (and I added about 2 tbl of maple syrup which you couldn’t taste – just peachy and cinnamon- Yum). Some folks added coconut cream to the top of theirs and they LOVED it!
    I’ll make this again!

    1. So glad you enjoyed it! I’m freezing a bunch of peaches today, just so I can make this a few times over the next couple weeks!

    1. I think it would work based off their texture, although I’ve never tried it because papaya isn’t readily available for us. You might want to try adding a bit of freshly squeezed lime juice if you try the papaya!

  2. Can’t wait to try this love peaches and ice cream peaches are just coming in in NC

    1. Thanks so much, the color comes from the peach skins being blended right in, which also seems to make for a much peachier flavor!

    1. You’ll never get enough nice cream when you start branching out from banana – it’s like a whole new world where you need nice cream every single day!

  3. That looks so good! Peaches are my favorite fruit. Never thought to make ice cream with them! Can’t wait to try this.

  4. Oh, I’m so excited for peach season to start so I can can a whole bunch of peach jam and sliced peaches and freeze a bunch to make this too! Only a few more weeks here in Colorado!!

    1. I’ve always wanted to visit somewhere you can get peaches ripe from the vine, the times I’ve been in peach country, I haven’t been a the right time!

  5. Our weather is very muggy, leaving us feeling a little bit YUCK when we’re outside – but this nice cream would absolutely keep those feelings at bay! So refreshing!!

    1. It’s been so hot here too, but luckily it’s only been humid on occasion – either way I’ve been eating a lot of nice cream this summer!

  6. What a beautiful, FUN treat for little kids that doesn’t have all the junk ingredients like the kind at the store! We pick up our peaches from our local farmer in a few weeks – can’t wait to make this!
