Peach Almond Ice Cream

Peaches are in high season here in Colorado and we are making the most of it.  This week I made a gluten free (of course), fruit sweetened, dairy free, vegan Peach Almond Ice Cream.

To increase the peach factor, I diced up more fresh peaches and mooshed them into the ice cream after it came out of the ice cream maker.

This is another recipe that is a bit more complicated than most, however, I found it to be well worth the effort.  As I ate this Peach Almond Ice Cream, I was pleasantly surprised that so few (and such healthy) ingredients, could taste so good.

  1. Place soaked almonds and water in vitamix
  2. Blend on highest setting until smooth, about 1 minute, add a bit more water if blending is a challenge
  3. Remove almond mixture from Vitamix and strain through a strainer bag, discarding solids
  4. Place almond mixture in rinsed out Vitamix container, blend in peaches and dates on highest setting until smooth
  5. Blend in stevia, vanilla and lemon juice
  6. Place mixture in ice cream maker and process according to instructions

I hope you all enjoy this quick and easy, healthy frozen dessert recipe. I love that it meets the needs of of people on gluten-free and dairy-free diets. If you’re wondering how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker, see my quick and easy 2-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream recipe.

I decided to pair peaches with almonds since agriculturally speaking they are close cousins and have somewhat similar as well as complementary flavors.

I am busy having a lot of fun doing interviews and planning signings for my book, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, which is now out!

I just finished up a radio interview with the lovely Niki Guluchi of Page 2 Pantry, you can listen to the program below:

  1. I just made peach ice cream tonight and thought you would like to hear the recipe, I just made it on a whim and it turned out amazing!
    1 bag frozen peaches
    1 avacado
    4 Tbs agave
    2 Tbs lime juice

    I just blended everything in my cuisinart food processor. I want to try your recipe too :)

  2. Love your site!

    Ordered your book immediately!

    Made this ice cream today (my first time making almond milk too!)

    It came out quite a bit runny, wouldn’t set up.

    So I will try to freeze it as well.

    Thanks so much for your blog and info!!! Can’t wait to get the book!

  3. We’re following the GAPS diet but I was able to adapt your inspiration and tonight made a GAPS-friendly version of this ice-cream with honey instead of stevia and it was divine! Thanks :)

  4. Another delectable dish! Looks scrumptious truly. I listened to the interview and I thought you did an incredible job, Elana. :-)

    Congrats to Kandy! I have not gotten your book yet, but I have BD gifts I haven’t picked up from friends and family yet due to our motorcycle trip so I’m hoping there will be Amazon and Border’s gift cards in that group–there usually are. :-)

    Thanks to Amy for reminding us that the food processor can help us out in lieu of a Vitamix. I know my poor overworked blender has reached its max potential just in doing green smoothies.


  5. I’ve been on a peach kick lately so I’m looking forward to trying this. I wanted to say again “Thank you” for sharing your wonderful recipes. I shared your site with my Homeopathic physician who instantly became a fan! I still can’t believe food can taste this good and still be healthy! Cooking and baking has taken on a whole new meaning! By the way, your cook book is wonderful! It just came today!

  6. Hi. Found this recipe by Googling and have now permanently bookmarked your fantastic site. I don’t have any dietary restrictions but have lots of friends who do, so your site is a wealth of information.

    I will be trying this recipe and was wondering what would be a suitable substitute for the paint strainer bag. Would a chinois be fine enough? How about cheese cloth?
