This easy, no-churn AIP and vegan Peach Ice Cream is a summer delight. It’s added sugar free and comes together in less than 5 minutes using only your food processor and three ingredients! Too easy and delicious not to make.
We have fresh summer peaches galore in our home right now. What a wonderful problem to have. I typically reserve a stash for eating fresh and the other for baking, cooking, smoothie-making and freezing.
As I’ve said before, while all peaches are delightful, frozen peaches are a different kind of magical. They’re slushy and creamy at the same time which is amazing for this super duper easy homemade treat. This ice cream recipe also has no added sweetener of any kind because of the natural sweetness of the ripe peaches. If you’d like it sweeter, you could always add 1-2 TBSP of maple syrup.
Here’s what you’ll need for this No-churn Peach Ice Cream:
- Frozen very ripe peaches – I like to keep a couple sliced frozen peaches on hand all the time during peach season for recipes like this. This recipe has no added sugar so you’ll want to ensure that you’re using really ripe peaches for the sweetness. If you don’t find it sweet enough, you could always add a TBSP or two of maple syrup
- Coconut milk – full fat coconut milk is what’s required here for a creamy texture (additive free). I don’t recommend using anything else for the optimal texture.
- Vanilla extract – 100% pure vanilla extract really complements the flavor of the peach here.
- A high powered food processor
How to make this 3-ingredient Ice Cream:
- Chop and freeze very ripe peaches.
- Add the frozen peaches, coconut milk and vanilla extract to a food processor and pulse until combined. Scrape down the sides of the food processor as necessary to continuously reincorporate the bits of frozen peaches.
- Spread into a loaf pan or glass container and freeze to desired consistency or eat as is for a soft-serve texture.
- Serve with fresh peach slices.
How do you store this ice cream?
You can store in a sealed container in the freezer but the consistency of this ice cream really changes when frozen due to the coconut milk and it is best eaten within 2-3 days after freezing. I’d suggest defrosting it on the counter until it’s your desired consistency but it won’t be as creamy as fresh!
Can I use fresh peaches?
No, this recipe requires frozen peaches for the texture. You can, however, likely used canned frozen peaches though I haven’t tried myself. You’ll want to ensure that they are preserved only in peach juices without any added sugar or other non-AIP compliant ingredients.
Can I add other fruits to this ice cream?
Frozen bananas are delicious in here, but you’ll need to add a bit more of the full fat coconut milk. Looking for other no-churn AIP ice cream recipes? Check out this AIP Strawberry Basil Ice Cream recipe and my Matcha Ice Cream.

Is the coconut milk used a can (where it solidifies if cooIer) or is it one of the dairy free alternatives like almond milk you find next to the milk in the refrigerated section?
HI Nicole, love your blog and easy to make recipes. When it comes to vanilla extract where would I find one that is 100% pure? I have only seen it mixed with alcohol. Can vanilla bean powder work as well and is it AIP? Thank you!
Hi Amy, according to the updated AIP by Sarah Ballantyne, alcohol-free is not required but look for a pure product that doesn’t contain natural flavors
This was perfect! I didn’t have quite enough frozen peaches so added some of the frozen cherries I had in the freezer from having made Nicole’s Grilled Pork Chops with Cherry Compote recently: https://healmedelicious.com/grilled-pork-chops-with-cherry-compote/. The cherry peach combo was unexpectedly delicious. We experimented with the level of frozen-ness and I ended up preferring the ice cream after a few hours in the freezer while my partner loved it even more the next day : )
Hi Nicole, do I need to peel the peaches before I freeze them?
Can you use frozen canned peaches for this recipe? That’s what I have on hand and need a summer time dessert for a small gathering tomorrow and this looks simple enough and I actually have the coconut milk too. 🙂 Also would frozen strawberries work too?
Also wanted to say this page is such a happy find and has given me some new easy recipes to help continue eating dairy and gluten free. I have been for 4 years but was bored and burned out of the same things and having to think of the substitutions all the time if I found a recipe. This makes it so much easier as most recipes I can eat all the ingredients! And bonus cutting out extra sugars too! TY!
Hi Mindy, sorry for the delayed response. Did you try them out? I think it should work! And thank you for your support 🙂
So excited to try this with delicious peaches! How long do you think you can store it for? Can I make it in advance at all? Thank you!!
Delicious and easy to make. Thank you!
So glad I found you to follow your info. I’ve been struggling for 5 years, still no actual diagnosis but began the AIP elimination diet back early July. Had to wait until yesterday to get food allergy test results back so I could know how to safely reintroduce foods and what to leave eliminated totally. Moving forward I will be gluten, dairy, egg, nightshade and shellfish free. Certainly makes it easier with the reintroduction phases lol. You’re recipes are life and game changer for me. Can’t thank you enough for sharing your journey to help others like me. Be blessed.
Hi Misty, thank you so much for your kind words. I’m so happy you were able to get some results to guide your reintroduction and that this space is offering you some inspiration. Thanks for being here. Rooting for you on your health journey <3 Nicole
