Peach has long been a favorite ice cream flavor of mine. There is just something about that winning combination of peaches and cream. This ice cream is sweet, creamy, and reminds me of summertime. I’ve made peach ice cream before but decided to try a different recipe this time around. This version comes from David Lebovitz and contains sour cream (just like the best strawberry ice cream), and thanks to both of these facts, it is far superior to the first recipe. The sour cream gives this a wonderfully creamy texture and a very slight tang to balance the sweetness of the peaches. I kept offering Ben other dessert options so I could keep this stuff to myself :) Since peach season is in full swing, this is the perfect time to enjoy some peach ice cream. Next time I might add a tablespoon or two of peach schnapps because really, why not? Yum.
Now, in honor of National Ice Cream Month (AKA the greatest themed month ever), I’m doing a series of giveaways. Check it out!
First up, we have two sets of these adorable ice cream bowls and coordinating spoons from Crate and Barrel. How cute are these?! I have had my eye on them all summer and decided they needed to be shared with you all. I have an obsession with ice cream bowls. Ben likes to joke that even using my wide angle lens I couldn’t fit all the bowls I own in one picture :)
Second, we have two copies of The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz (AKA The Bible of Ice Cream). If you make your own ice cream, this book is an absolute necessity. Enough said.
And finally, one lucky reader will win an ice cream maker! I’ve got to keep spreading the homemade ice cream love. I’m offering the option of either the KitchenAid mixer ice cream attachment OR the Cuisinart stand alone model depending on whether or not you have a KitchenAid mixer base.
So – five opportunities to win! Are you pumped? To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling me a flavor of ice cream you’d like to try making at home. Or, if you are new to ice cream making, what’s the first flavor you would like to try? Also be sure to include in your comment which of these prizes you would like to be eligible for should your entry be chosen (one, two or all three – for example, if you already have an ice cream maker you only want one of the other two options, etc.)
The Rules: One entry per person, U.S. residents only. Commenting will close on Sunday, July 17 at 10:00 pm, EST. Entries that do not follow the entry requirements will not be considered. Five winners will be chosen at random and announced next week. Good luck!
All giveaways brought to you by yours truly :)
