Well the dog days of summer are almost over and while I will miss the smells of chlorine and fresh cut grass.. I can’t help but admit my love for the Fall season. The crunchy leaves, the crisp morning runs, pumpkin patch adventures and the FOOD. The Fall season will bring some incredible and exciting recipes here at The Guiding Spoon (stay tuned).
For our family this is the last weekend before school starts…before busy days filled with homework, activities, packing lunches, forgetting lunch, driving lunches to school and all things busy. I’d like to take this weekend to not only spend time with my girls but to also take a break with my hubby and reminisce about our Summer adventures as they come to an end.
It only seems fitting to give ice cream one last Hurrah!! before the page closes on everything summer. You scream! I scream! We all scream for Summer to not END (wahhhhhhhh!!!) Don’t be sad about the ice cream part, I have many Holiday recipes for gelato and ice cream up my sleeveless apron.
Vanilla Bourbon Peach Ice cream—(Yes, I said Bourbon). Warm vanilla and bourbon flavors wrapped in fresh peach…Do I even need to explain how DELICIOUS this is? Peaches…peaches…oh how we all love peaches. Whip this treat up in 10 minutes this evening (no ice cream maker needed), let it freeze overnight. Tomorrow go, relax outside and enjoy an adult treat. You deserve it.
I will leave you with this important message from The Presidents of the United States of America:
I’m movin’ to the country, I’m gonna eat a lot of peaches
Peaches come from a can
They were put there by a man
In a factory downtown
Lets make ice cream!
Are you peachy keen?! Enjoy!! Have a great weekend!

Vanilla Bourbon Peach Ice Cream
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
- 2 tbsp bourbon (optional)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 can fresh peaches (drained) ( I use organic canned peaches)
- Drain peaches and set aside.
- In a small bowl, stir milk and vanilla together.
- Whip heavy cream on medium-high speed until peaks form.
- Fold bourbon into the cream mixture and then fold vanilla milk mixture. Fold gently and pour into a glass baking dish lined with parchment paper. (paper should be sticking out and over sides)
- Puree peaches in a blender and add to dish using a knife to swirl the peaches into the mixture- do not stir!
- Cover with plastic wrap and freeze 6-8 hours or overnight for best results.
Recipe notes & tips:
- You puree your favorite fruit!
- You can use vanilla beans instead of extract!
- Bourbon is optional
