Hold on to summer with these cool and creamy Peach Ice Cream Sandwiches!
Happy Labor Day Weekend! I don’t know about you, but I’m still holding on to summer. The heat is not letting up just yet here in Charlotte, so I’m still in summer mode. Even though I hate to see summer go, I love the end of summer for the produce. Sweet corn, watermelon, peaches, zucchini, tomatoes. It’s all so good!
One thing I can never get enough of are fresh peaches. They’re just so good down here! I do have to say, I can be guilty of leaving them sit on my counter a little too long and then I’m scrambling to do something with them. My favorite way to use them is to make a peach crisp or mix them into oatmeal. Another way you can salvage those peaches that have ripened just a little too much, is to freeze them. You can then blend them up into smoothies or use them for ice cream or sorbet.
In lieu of keeping things short and sweet for this holiday weekend, we’ll cut to the chase. You all know I love ice cream! It’s seriously my favorite food group! For this recipe, I blended up this peach ice cream super quickly without an ice cream machine. It’s definitely more of a light, whipped ice cream, rather than your typical dense and creamy ice cream. You could totally skip the ice cream sandwich part and just crush up some graham crackers into the peach mixture, spread it into a loaf pan, freeze, scoop, and enjoy. I think the ice cream sandwich part is fun! It makes for a kid-friendly dessert and is perfect for your end of summer get-togethers.
What’s your favorite end of summer food to enjoy?
Peach Ice Cream Sandwiches
Notes: Use cold beaters & bowl for whipping the whipped cream. Since the graham crackers won’t fill the entire bottom of the pan, use crumpled up tin foil as a spacer around the edges of the pan to hold the ice cream sandwiches together. This will make it easier to keep the sandwiches uniform sizes and to slice.
