Peach Blackberry Ice Cream {Dairy-Free}

Peach Blackberry Ice Cream 2

The following is a guest post by one of my favorite fellow Austinites — Lindsey Gremont of Homemade Mommy. Lindsey works full time in a corporate job, yet still makes time to not only blog, but prepare amazing meals made from locally-sourced, traditionally-prepared foods. If you don’t already know Lindsey’s blog, go check it out! It’s the perfect inspiration for busy parents who are on the Real Food bandwagon.

We have a ton of peaches this week and I knew just how to use them. This ice cream is dairy-free but you would never know it. The coconut milk and pastured egg yolks make it rich and creamy. I also add gelatin to my base for a smooth and easily scoop-able finish!

The Players

The How-To

Heat the coconut milk, maple sugar and gelatin in a medium sauce pan on medium low heat, until steaming, but not quite boiling. Turn heat down to low.

Bring a pot of water to boil. Blanch the whole peaches in the boiling water briefly and then remove the skins and pits.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks.

Once the coconut milk is steaming, add one small ladle of it to the egg yolks, and stir to combine. Slowly add two more small ladles full. This will temper the egg yolks, so they won’t scramble when you add them to the hot coconut milk.

Slowly pour the egg yolk mixture back into the pan with the coconut milk, and whisk until slightly thickened, which will take several minutes. Make sure the mixture doesn’t boil, as this will scramble your eggs.

When the mixture has thickened to the consistency of a thin custard, remove from heat and add the vanilla extract.

Add the peeled and pitted peaches, the blackberries and coconut milk mixture to a high speed blender and blend until smooth.

Transfer to a jar and refrigerate until very cold, overnight is best.

Once the mixture is cold, freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

    The link to the BPA-free, guar gum-free coconut milk is broken and I’m DYING to see what brand you recommend.

      Thanks for the heads up! It’s fixed now.

    Could you use coconut sugar instead of maple sugar? I don’t have any maple sugar and would love to keep the cost down by using items I already have.

    Is there a way to make this egg free too?

    I get that brand and I absolutely love it! It’s far better than anything in a can. It’s like eating fresh coconut, thick and creamy, coconutty, wonderful. I purchase it at a local international grocery store.

    Try the coconut sugar and let us know how it tastes. I haven’t tried that. As for ditching the eggs – again haven’t tried that. I would assume the recipe would not taste the same as you are leaving out a main ingredient.

    I use the Native Forest canned coconut for yogurt and ice cream. It’s BPA free, but has organic guar gum in it. It’s rich and creamy, I love it. Thanks for the recipe! Looks wonderful.

    Is there a substitute for the maple syrup? The maple syrup is already costly in our budget I can imagine using 1/3 cup for ice cream :/

      I’m confused. There is no maple syrup in this recipe.

    This looks really good! My blackberry plants are giving me about 1 lb. of blackberries a day right now, so I was looking for something summery to make with them :) Thanks!

    I’ve never been a fan of peaches but you make this ice cream look irresistible! I’ve been seeing a lot of them at the farmer’s market but always walk by them. I need to give this a try in my vitamix.

    This looks divine! Is there a way to finish it out without an ice cream maker?
