This hot and sticky summer weather has left me wanting a cold treat on some evenings and this 5-minute peach ice cream fits the bill. In addition to coming together in 5-minutes, it also makes a single serving, so it’s super fresh every time and doesn’t make too much. It’s creamy, dairy-free and divine!
I don’t like to make many treats and baked goods, and generally turn to berries with melted coconut butter when I want something sweet. Sticking to my same fruit and coconut route, I used some frozen peaches (from a friend’s peach tree that I cut and froze myself) and blended them with coconut milk, coconut butter and vanilla to make a cold and slightly sweet indulgence. It’s super easy and delicious, and can be made with pretty much any frozen fruit. Second to the peach, blueberry is my favorite. You can even blend different frozen fruits together to create other flavor varieties as well. There’s many options!
Cheers and enjoy!
5-Minute Peach Ice Cream
- 1 cup frozen unsweetened peaches
- 1/3 – 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk (I like this brand and this brand)
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp melted coconut butter (I like this one and this one)
- Combine the first three ingredients in a blender or food processor (I used my smallest Ninja container). Blend for 20-30 seconds and then remove lid and scrape down the sides. Blend again and add a bit more coconut milk if needed. Then, add the melted coconut butter and blend again, until smooth.
- Top with anything you desire. I like raw sprouted walnut pieces, fresh blackberries or raw unsweetened cacao nibs.
Yields: 1 serving
I just love that you used basil here, even if it was just for garnish 😊
Now you have me thinking up a peach basil salsa of some sort!
Thanks! I always eat my garnishes and found that the ice cream tastes quite nice with the basil — very refreshing. A peach basil salsa sounds awesome, so I hope you make it!
I had a peach and couple of other stone fruits over the weekend, I haven’t eaten any stone fruits for a long time, definitely not since we moved here and proceeded to have the worst stomach pains for 2 days straight and remembered why I stopped eating them! Don’t know what it is but yeh I can’t digest them well! Which makes me sad 🙁 This ice cream sounds delicious though! Should try with different fruits 🙂
That’s odd — is it just stone fruit that gives you problems? Stone fruits like peaches and cherries are lower in sugar, but plums are more sugary. Berries are a great option, and a little lower in sugar too. I love making this with blueberries as well.
Yeh I just remember always having an issue with them which is why I stopped eating them and recently decided to try them out again but no luck! I don’t do a lot of fruit in general anyway and stick to berries usually. So yeh I’ll have to try it with something like blueberries, although the peach looks so pretty! 🙂
Berries are the best fruit in my opinion, so at least you can tolerate those, but I love a good peach or nectarine! I try to moderate my fruit as well, but during the summer when it’s plentiful, I tend to eat a bit more than usual (but I’m still reasonable with it). I know, the peach is pretty, but the blueberry is mighty fine looking too 😉
Peach ice cream sounds perfect!!!!!!! We’re not allowed fruit on our challenge, but we finish this week!!!!
It will be a nice reward for you and not too indulgent either 😉

I love to make and eat nondairy ice cream. This one is just peachy.
Can’t wait to try it.
Me too! Thanks for your kind words — hope you enjoy the peachy-ness!
