Have extra peaches and tired of rich dessert? Try this easy peach nice cream. Coconut cream gives this dairy free ice cream amazing flavor and texture.
Have you tried our maple grilled peaches yet? If you haven’t…you’re missing out. They’re delicious!! Many times we turn to grilled pineapple when we are wanting an easy summer dessert, but when peaches are in season, grilled peaches are where it’s at.
One classic summer dessert is peaches and cream. I can eat a bowl of peaches with a little heavy cream drizzle on top any time of the day. But what happens when you want something like ice cream but can’t have the dairy?
You make Nice Cream!
Nice cream is a healthier alternative to ice cream. It is usually dairy free and many times has bananas as a base. You can really use any type of fruit you want. Just freeze it and blend away.
What happens when you want nice cream with just a little extra creaminess? Add full fat coconut cream! We feature this recipe with peaches, but you can really switch out the peaches for just about any other fruit you’d like.
There are two different steps you have to do in advance to make an easy homemade nice cream:
Once you’ve done these two initial steps, it’s time to make the peach nice cream!
Open the can of coconut milk and use a spoon to scoop out just the solid white cream. Save the milk for another use (we like to add it to smoothies).
Place the frozen peaches (or other fruit) in a high powered blender. (This will not work with a weak blender….you need lots of power!) You’ll need about 2 cups of fruit.
We love our Ninja blender for making smoothies, milkshakes and nice cream. Get it here.
**Pro Tip: If you’d like, you can add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup. This is totally optional but just adds a little sweetness and flavor.**
Blend on high speed for about 1 minute or until the mixture is completely smooth.
That’s it! It’s ready to eat!
It is important to note that this nice cream is best enjoyed right after being made. It does not have the same consistency or flavor if you make ahead and freeze it to serve later. You can plan ahead by having the ingredients ready and then just be spontaneous in when you choose to make and enjoy!
We like to add a drizzling of maple syrup and some grilled peaches to our nice cream. It’s like a healthy peaches and cream!
You can also add any other fruit you’d like for topping…or add a sprinkling of coconut or pecans.
This peach nice cream recipe sounds simple & delicious. Thank you for sharing it.
Do you leave skin on (or off) when freezing the fresh peaches beforehand?
This sounds wonderful. I am picking up a bushel (or 2) for canning tomorrow. I always like to make something to enjoy fresh with whatever I am canning and I think this will be it.
