It's been really hot here and all I want to eat are frozen things.
One particularly hot day, I was craving sorbet but didn't want to go out to get some, so I made some "desperation sorbet" out of fresh peaches.
And it was good! Really good.
Much better than other things I've made out of desperation, like that spaghetti sandwich I made with leftover garlic bread, spaghetti, and corn when I was in junior high.
This dairy free, vegan-friendly peach nice cream is made with only three simple ingredients. It's so fruity and delicious - you'd never guess it's so healthy.
How to Make Peach Nice Cream
Start by cutting two peaches into chunks and freezing them. Then puree the peaches with ¼ cup of almond milk and a tablespoon of agave syrup (or honey).
The texture is a little bit softer than a sorbet (as you can see), but the taste is exactly like peach sorbet!
- 2 peaches
- ¼ cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp agave syrup or honey
- Cut two peaches into large chunks. Freeze for at least two hours, until peaches are very frozen.
- In a blender, combine the peaches, almond milk, and agave syrup. Blend into nice cream!
Still hungry? Here are the other recipes I cooked up this week:
Peach Sorbet Ice Cream Sandwiches // So then, because I can never leave well enough alone, I decided to use almond thin cookies to make ice cream sandwiches with the sorbet. The sorbet was good, but these were even better. If you're looking for a relatively guilt-free summer treat, make these! Make them now!
Summer Squash and Ricotta Galette // Perfect in every way. If I manage to get some more squash from the garden, I'll be making this again. And the crust was totally doable, even for me--using olive oil is much easier to manage than butter.
Pineapple Jalapeno Granita // Sweet, refreshing, and just a little bit spicy. This is one of my favorite summer desserts.
Grilled Eggplant and Tofu Steaks with Sticky Hoisin Glaze // I would totally eat this sauce with a spoon.
