Peach Crisp Ice Cream is creamy vanilla ice cream filled with chunks of peach crisp, a peach lover’s dream come true. With chunks of buttery brown sugar and oat crisp with syrupy peaches in every bite, this ice cream is irresistible.
You may have noticed that I’ve developed the habit of turning everything I possibly can into ice cream. I am a firm believer that ice cream can make almost any dessert even better.
This obsession began with this creamy and delicious apple crisp ice cream. It is the most amazing cinnamon-sweet baked apples with a crunchy, buttery streusel topping folded into homemade ice cream.
My love of ice creams with all the goodness combined in comes from those times, like right before bed when I want something sweet. But having a bowl of dessert with a scoop of ice cream on top is a bit much.
However, I feel way less guilt when I have a scoop of something like peach crisp ice cream. It is all the goodness of the fruit-filled dessert and ice cream combined and it satisfies that late-night craving.
That is, if my boys haven’t discovered it and polished off the ice cream before me. I have been known to change up which freezer and where I stash it. I can not share where that secret place is because they do occasionally read this blog now.
Ice Cream Making Tips
These are my favorite inexpensive containers for storing ice cream. They’re perfect for gifting (who doesn’t love homemade ice cream?) storage, re-using, etc. I write the flavors on the lids with a sharpie and it washes off with dish soap.
I have more ice cream scoops than I can keep track of at this point and I definitely play favorites. This ice cream scoop does the best job ever of cutting through firm ice cream and still delivers a pretty scoop. It gets bonus points for being one of the least expensive scoops I own as well.

Peach Crisp Ice Cream Recipe
- Whisk together the cream, milk, vanilla, sugar, and salt. Pour into your ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.
- While the ice cream is churning, use a large spatula to transfer about ½ of the cold peach crisp to a cutting board. Roughly chop the cobbler until all the pieces are bite-size. You’ll need about 2 cups worth of bite-size chunks of peach crisp.
- When the ice cream has finished churning, transfer it to a 10″ pan or a large air-tight container. Layer half the ice cream, then chunks of crisp over the ice cream, then repeat with the remaining ice cream and crisp. Freeze until firm.
Peaches and Cream Ice Cream
This is an ice cream you have to plan ahead for. First, you will want the peach crisp to be completely cold. In fact, store it in the refrigerator overnight before mixing it into the ice cream. Or pop it in the freezer for a few hours to chill it.
This will help you avoid a melted mess. My lack of patience has gotten the best of me before and well you can imagine exactly what happened. (That said, a slushy batch of crisp filled ice cream adds up to pretty amazing milkshakes. No one actually complains when that happens.)
Second, keep your pieces of peach crisp smaller than 1/2″ in size. Fruit will freeze very firm in ice cream, resulting in icy chunks. Smaller pieces will help keep it creamy and scoopable.
Allow the ice cream to warm on the counter for 10-15 minutes prior to scooping, if it is extra firm when you are ready to serve it.
The most popular question I get is whether it’s possible to make ice cream without a machine. The answer is YES. You can make ice cream without a machine. Find the full directions here!
Once you’ve fallen in love with the awesomeness that is homemade ice cream, I recommend trying a few more of our favorites. Like this creamy peach cobbler ice cream and this version filled with chunks of strawberry rhubarb crisp.
Want an ice cream you can stir together in just a few minutes and have churning in no time at all? Try this ice cream with fresh strawberries or this rich and creamy maple ice cream with just four ingredients! Pure maple syrup gives this ice cream a smooth natural flavor with hints of caramel and vanilla.
