Easy and Delicious Peach Italian Ice

peach italian ice recipe

Sassyfras and I made peach Italian ice for dessert today.  Again, it was one of our summer bucket list ideas.  So fun!  So easy!  And so delicious!  

easy peach italian ice recipe

4-5 peaches
1/8 cup fresh lemon juice
2/3 cup sugar + 1/2 cup water to make simple syrup
1/2 cup additional water
1/2 peach juice (use the leftovers to make the adults some bellini's, smile)

healthy dessert idea

Our Recipe

  • Prepare the simple syrup by bringing 1/2 cup of water to boil with 2/3 cups of sugar.  Once all the sugar is dissolved (should only be a couple of minutes) remove from the heat and cool.  
  • Peel and slice the peaches.  Puree them in a blender until smooth with the cooled simple syrup, fresh lemon juice, peach juice and water.  Add more sugar and/or lemon juice until it taste "right" to you.
  • Refrigerate mixture until it's cold.
  • Freeze in your ice cream maker.  Place in a sealed container and freeze until you're ready to serve.
  • Serve and enjoy!

I can't wait to try some other flavors.  I think the kids are clamoring for raspberry next.

Thanks Senka. I don't think of myself as a food blogger or a great recipe maker by any means, but I do enjoy cooking with my kids.
