It's peach season, it's summer, it's hot. Why not get the best out of the seasonal produce and beat the heat with Grilled Peach Ice Cream! No I didn't grill the ice cream, I grilled the peaches and put them into the ice cream. This dessert is kid friendly and super easy to make. It was creamy and smoky and sweet. 

I guess I should explain the asterisks on the time it takes to make the Grilled Peach Ice Cream. It really doesn't take long, but the freezing time is where it gets you. I don't exactly have a place to put that. But basically you have to wait, impossibly hard because it smells and tastes so good, for the ice cream to set for at least 2 hours in the freezer.

Grilled Peach Ice Cream

Serves: 12       Total Time: 25 Minutes*

Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1¾cups of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla
  • 10 fresh, ripe peaches
  • ¼ cup of butter

Directions

Step 1
Place a large clean glass or metal bowl into your freezer. Wash your peaches, then set a pot of water to boil. Fill your sink or a bowl with cold water and ice. Carefully slice an 'X' into the bottoms of all the peaches, through the skin, but getting as little flesh as you can.
Step 2
When the pot is boiling, drop one to three peaches into the water at a time, and simmer them for about a minute. Then remove them from the boiling water and place them directly into the ice water bath.
Step 3
Peel the peaches and slice in half, discarding the pit.
Step 4
Preheat your grill to high. Melt the butter. Brush the peaches with the melted butter and grill until they have some great grill marks and are starting to get soft.
Step 5
Slice a third of the peaches into bite sized chunks, and blend the remaining peaches into a purée.
Step 6
Remove the bowl from the freezer and measure your whipping cream into it. Using a hand mixer, whip the cream until stiff peaks form.
Step 7
Add in the condensed milk, vanilla, peach purée, and peach chunks, folding them into the whipped cream gently.
Step 8
Line a 9 x 13 inch pan with plastic wrap (optional) and pour the whipped cream - peach mixture into the pan. Freeze for at least 2 hours or until set.
Step 9
You can serve this with whatever you want, but I recommend more hot, freshly grilled peaches.

This turned out great, fed a crowd, impressed people, and even satisfied a craving. It was super easy. I think I mentioned that. AND it is totally kid friendly. Think I mentioned that too... But really. Have them help you make the cream part, stir in the other ingredients, and serve, they will be some happy campers.
