I saved the best for last!

I am actually totally and completely in back to school mode, but when my husband brought home a bushel of peaches from our favorite stone fruit farmer last week…well I just had to celebrate a little more summer!

There isn’t quite anything like peaches that have had a chance to ripen right on the tree.

They are so sweet and juicy, my older girls can down 2 or 3 of them without so much as a thought. And how could I say no to that knowing we won’t see fresh peaches again until next summer?! I have been able to snag enough to make some peach popsicles and smoothies, as well as peach coffee cake and blueberry peach crisp for a weekend treat.

Dairy Free Peaches and Cream Sherbet
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 1 - 1½ cups coconut cream (I used my coconut milk and set it in the fridge to separate the cream. You can use the leftover coconut milk liquid in a smoothie or popsicle. Whole yogurt would work well if you want more of a frozen yogurt taste!)
  • 8 small/medium peaches, halved and pitted
  • 2-4 TB raw honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
Instructions
  1. Everything into your high powered blender and blend until smooth. I used the ice cream blend function on my Blendtec.
  2. Pour the sherbet mixture into a container or a loaf pan and freeze over night. Alternatively, if you have an ice cream maker, you can churn it to freeze it faster - after churning in my ice cream maker for 30 minutes it was a bit like soft serve, and then it just needed a couple hours in the freezer. The sherbet does get hard when frozen completely. Simply set it out on the counter for about 30 minutes or so to soften it before serving.

    Oh yum, Renee! This looks gorgeous! So you don’t freeze this in an ice cream maker? You just blend it, pour into loaf pan, freeze, then set on counter for 30 minutes to make it scoopable? Thank you! xx

      Hi Megan! Yes! There is more fruit than coconut cream so it really doesn’t need to “churn” like a milk based ice cream needs to be – it is a sherbet!
