Not So Peachy Ice Cream

Unfortunately I am the only one in the house that likes peaches. Jason and Jakob don't really like all things peachy....and I think they are trying to turn Aiden to the dark side! I brought up the subject of this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, Honey Peach Ice Cream, with the boys and both said "no thanks!". So I put on my thinking cap, and then realized I had lots and lots of blueberries in the fridge just waiting to be eaten. Honey Blueberry Ice Cream was approved by all and the process began. I was a little apprehensive to attempt this as I don't own an ice cream maker! But some great friends on Twitter (I love my Twitter friends!) sent me this link to David Lebovitz's website with great instructions on how to do it without one! It went fairly well, a little time consuming and meant that I couldn't go anywhere or nap for a few hours in the afternoon but it was so worth it. I actually said that we may never buy ice cream again. But I really still want an ice cream maker....maybe the ice cream fairy will bring me one.


I switched up the peaches with 2 cups of blueberries....but that is all I changed. I did not save any for the end of the recipe - I boiled them all with the honey and pureed them all.....made for a lovely purple shade of ice cream!


A huge Thank You to Tommi, of Brown Interior, for choosing this recipe - it got me to try to make my own ice cream...something I had been to intimidated to do before now! Be sure to stop by Brown Interior for the recipe and check out the Tuesdays with Dorie Blogroll to see all the other creations.
Oh, and I made a small batch of Lemon Sugar Cookies to go with the ice cream...a perfect match!
Take care,
Tania

Peach/blueberry is my favorite combination! Every morning for breakfast, I have a peach and blueberry smoothie made with almond milk! And it is just that shade of purple! That ice cream looks great! Great job!

What ingeniousness. Perfectly done!

Hmmm, Bud would love this! No one here is that big on peaches either. You should get one of those rolly ball ice cream things and put those boys to work!!

You did a phenomenal job, but I definitely hope that you get that ice cream maker. This one looks so delicious and tempting!! Beautiful.

I don't like blueberries, but I have to agree, that is a gorgeous color. =) I'm glad you were able to make this without an ice cream maker. I'm definitely spoiled by mine.
