Since I had peaches, I decided to try the peach version of this ice cream recipe from Simply in Season. Best of all, there is no ice cream maker needed! Read on to learn how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker.

The Verdict: I accidentally put too much almond extract in, so that was a wee bit overpowering, but it was very creamy and sweet; just like ice cream should be! The texture was awesome. Who needs an ice cream maker? I can totally see using this with a wide variety of fruit.
