Helpful Tips and FAQs

The fastest way to peel Peaches

in a medium saucepan, bring enough water to a boil to cover the peaches. Once the water is that rapid boil using your slotted spoon, place the peaches carefully into the water. Let them boil for approximately 30 to 45 seconds. Remove the peaches from the boiling water with your slotted spoon. Spoon and plunge them into an ice bath. Remove them from the ice bath and slide the peel off of the peach. This method will not work unless the peaches are fully ripe. (Watch the video to see how it’s done)

How to make sugar Free Peach Ice Cream without an Ice Cream Maker

Making ice cream without an ice cream maker is certainly not impossible. It just requires a little more work. Follow the mixing of the ingredients as specified in the recipe.

once you have mixed all of your ingredients, place them into your freezer container. Cover the container and place it in the freezer. While the ice cream is freezing, you’ll need to mix it every 25 to 30 minutes until you can no longer stir it.

Depending on the freezer and the temperature settings, this can take two hours and as much as four hours.

Common Problems with Homemade Ice Cream

The Ice Cream freezes too hard

if you find that you’ve made your ice cream and you’ve put it in the freezer and when you pull it out to serve it, it’s too hard let it sit at room temperature or use the setting on a microwave for softening ice cream. Not all microwaves have this, but I find this is an excellent way to soften it.

This can occur because there is less air incorporated in homemade ice cream than in commercially made ice cream.. Ice cream will stay softer if it has had a little bit of alcohol added to the mix. You can add a little bit of vodka while making it to lower the freezing point.

The flavour is too mild

It can be difficult to achieve a bold flavour when making ice cream. If you have omitted the Jello or Skinny mix, you may find that it just isn’t quite peachy enough. This is why I don’t recommend leaving either of these ingredients out of the recipe.

The Ice Cream crystalizes

if your ice cream turns out to be icy or has too many ice crystals forming on the top, this could be because the ingredients weren’t chilled enough before making the recipe. It is a good idea to make sure that all of your cream and your skinny syrup is chilled before making the recipe.

Over-churning can also cause the ice cream to become icy. Follow the instructions on your ice cream maker, and only churn until it’s thickened enough to scoop. Then transfer it into your ice cream container or serve.

Alternative Ingredients

Sugar-Free Peach Jello

For a full-bodied peach flavour, I don’t recommend skipping this ingredient.

If you are unable to find sugar-free peach Jell-O, you can make your own mixture. In a small prep bowl place about 2 tablespoons of the Jordan skinny peach Bellini mix. Sprinkle a packet of unflavoured gelatin over the top and let it thicken. Then add it to the Sugar Free Peach Ice Cream recipe. Add 1 teaspoon of Sugar Free Peach Extract or 1/2 tsp of the super-strength LorAnn peach oil.

If you are not using the Jello powder, you will need to add artificial sweetener to the peaches when simmering.

Jordan’s Skinny Peach Bellini Mix

if you are unable to find the Jordans Skinny Peach, Bellini mix, I recommend substituting it with the Jordans skinny zero sugar, peach syrup. Other brands such as Torani Sugar Free Peach Syrup are also suitable.

The Cream

if you are trying to reduce the amount of fat in the overall recipe, you can substitute for heavy cream and half and half for lighter versions, such as milk or even partially water. Keep in mind that this will impact the overall creaminess of your finished sugar free peach ice cream. The last fat in the recipe means that the ice cream will be less creamy and may be more like a sherbert.

The Sweetener

Using Frozen Peaches instead of fresh peaches

if you are using frozen peaches, the most important step is to let them thaw completely and drain off any excess liquid before starting your recipe. Place them in the saucepan just as you would the fresh peaches and use the drained peach liquid in place of the water. Add the remaining ingredients directed in the recipe. You may need less liquid because even though you’ve drained the frozen peaches, they will still have more liquid than fresh ones.

Choosing the best peaches

One of the keys to getting the best flavour in your sugar-free peach, ice cream is to have fresh ripe peaches. You don’t want overripe peaches as they will be too juicy and lose their flavour. Peaches that are too hard will not be juicy enough, and the flavour has not developed yet. If you have store-bought peaches, that are a little hard follow these simple instructions.

To Ripen Hard Peaches.

Place the hard peaches in a paper bag and leave them at room temperature for a day or two. The fruit releases ethylene gas and will speed up the ripening process. To make it go even faster, add a ripe apple or banana to the bag.

For easy pitting choose peaches that are freestone or cling-free. The term freestone or cling-free means that it doesn’t stick to the pit. Sometimes supermarkets don’t label peaches as cling-free or Freestone but the most common cling-free or freestone peaches that I have seen are Red Haven Loring in Elberta. If you are going to pick your own orchard, you’ll have options to choose either cling-free or clingstone.

To get that nice orange peachy colour in your finished sugar-free peach ice cream choose red peaches. White peaches taste good but don’t have that nice peach colour. If white peaches are your only option, add a couple of drops of orange food colouring into the peach mixture.

Freezing Instructions

Freeze your ice cream in an airtight container. To reduce the chance of crystallization or drying, add a layer of plastic wrap directly onto the ice cream surface.

The ice cream will stay fresh for up to one month when it is tightly covered.
