Got Peaches? Then you’re in luck! Today I’m sharing the recipe on how to make this quick and easy, 2 Ingredient Peach Sherbet! Yep, 2 ingredients is all that is needed for this lusciously sweet and creamy, no churn peach sherbet.
Quick and Easy No Churn Peach Sherbet
We visited a DIY peach picking farm a while back and brought home quite a few perfectly ripe peaches. Mmm, nothing like the taste of a sweet and juicy peach right off the tree!
Since we only picked the ripest fruit, after a few days and eating what we could, I peeled and chopped the rest for the freezer.
We use frozen fruit all the time to make smoothies and shortcut ice cream and one of my favorite shortcut recipes is this 2 ingredient no churn peach sherbet.
This Easy Peach Sherbet Recipe has only 2 Ingredients!
Yes, you read that right! This recipe (if you can call it a recipe) uses only 2 ingredients – sweetened condensed milk and frozen peaches.
Sweetened condensed milk, when blended with frozen fruit, makes for a smooth, creamy and delicious sherbet-like treat that comes together in no time flat!
What’s the difference between Sherbet and Sorbet?
The main difference between these two yummy frozen treats is mainly the amount of dairy they contain. Sorbet, (like my mango sorbet recipe or cherry lime sorbet) has no dairy at all and sherbet has dairy.
Why is Your Peach Sherbet so Pinky/peach and Mine is Yellow?
I’ve actually gotten this question a lot and I agree this sherbet is gorgeous!
Did you know there are over 350 varieties of peaches?
I know, thats crazy – a peach is a peach, lol! (But, not really)
The type of peach I used for this recipe is called a Carored. If you notice the image of my daughter above, eating the fresh peach off the tree, you can see just how red the juice is in these peaches is. Especially if the peach is allowed to fully ripen on the tree before harvesting.
I froze the peaches with the skin on and they turned the prettiest shade of pinky/red in the freezer. And of course, when I blended the peaches with the sweetened condensed milk, the blender broke down the skins and spread the color throughout the sherbet.
Ingredients Needed for this Easy Peach Sherbet Recipe
Want to make this peach sherbet? Add these ingredients to your shopping list:
- 1 – 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 16 to 24 oz of frozen sliced peaches
How to Make 2 Ingredient Peach Sherbet
Depending on the variety of your peaches and how sweet they may or may not be, I recommend starting with less of the sweetened condensed milk than you might end up needing. (you can always add more, but you can’t take it out, lol!)
- Add the peaches and half the can of the sweetened condensed milk to your blender or food processor and blend.
- Give the mixture a taste and add more sweetened condensed milk as needed, continue blending until creamy.
- Serve the sherbet right away as soft serve or spread into a shallow dish and freeze for an hour or two to achieve firmer more ice cream like consistency.
Will this Easy Sherbet Recipe Work With Other Fruits?
Yes, this recipe would be amazing with just about any fruit. As mentioned above, I do recommend starting with less sweetened condensed milk, tasting and adding as needed.
- Strawberries (4 cups frozen Strawberries and 12 oz sweetened condensed milk
- Watermelon (6 cups frozen watermelon and 12 oz sweetened condensed milk)
- Mixed berry (strawberry, blueberry, raspberry)
- Bananas (oh yes – use 4-5 ripe frozen bananas and ¼ cup sweetened condensed milk. Yum!)

- Total Time: 5 minutes
- Yield: 4 to 6 servings 1x
- Category: dessert
- Method: blender
Make this yummy Peach Sherbet in just a few minutes and with only 2 ingredients!
- 1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 16 to 24 oz of frozen sliced peaches
- optional ingredients to add to the depth of flavor: 1 tsp of vanilla extract, a pinch of salt and/or a squeeze of lemon
- Add peaches and half the sweetened condensed milk to your blender or food processor and blend.
- Give the mixture a taste and add more sweetened condensed milk as needed, until creamy. (After reaching desired sweetness, add in optional ingredients if desired.)
- Serve immediately as soft serve (which is how we normally eat it.)
- Or pour it into a freezer-safe container and let harden a few hours in the freezer. (If you leave it in the freezer too long and is too hard to scoop, just leave it on the counter for a few minutes and it will be perfect!)
- I had a reader email me to say she thought 1 full can of sweetened condensed milk was too much and since the sweetness of your peaches will vary, she recommends starting with half a can of sweetened condensed milk and giving the mixture a taste.
- If you use less sweetened condensed milk, you might need to add a tablespoon or 2 of milk/cream for the blender to do its job. (Depends on the power of your blender)

This is a perfect treat! I started with a 20oz. Bag of frozen peaches and a half can condensed milk and added a 1/4 for a perfect batch. So, in the freezer I had three frozen ripe bananas and used the left over milk. Thank You!
We have 2 peach trees and have canned, frozen and eaten them fresh. I was looking for more ideas when I saw your recipe. It was so easy and so delicious! In my Vitamix, I did half of the peaches, half of the sweetened condensed milk, then the rest of the peaches. I did add some half and half because it was very thick, then added another 1/4 can of sweetened condensed milk, and finished blending it. PERFECT!!! Thank you!
I am jealous of your peach trees!
I love the recipe! Can’t wait to try it with peaches and other fruits. I’m dairy-free, so plan to use Coconut sweetened condense milk. Thank you for sharing!!
Love this recipe. Easy and tasty.
What a waste of 6 beautiful peaches. This was too soft to serve immediately after making so I out into freezer. It froze so hard I could not even scoop it out. When I left it out to thaw some it became too liquidy again. What a waste.
you should recook it. you must not have let it come to 220 degrees F
This sounds yummy and I need to use up some peaches. But I don’t have a blender! Could it be made in a food processor?
Awesome! My family will thank you for your quick reply ?
I did not have peaches so I made this with strawberries I had on hand, this was so good, I am looking to try other fruits, do you have a recipe for coconut, maybe using coconut cream?
I love coconut, the only thing I can think of on my site is this one minute Strawberry “ice cream” that I made with coconut (not including adult beverages, lol.) But you practically already made it: https://www.scatteredthoughtsofacraftymom.com/one-minute-strawberry-ice-cream-recipe/
Ive never seen peaches that red before! This looks delicious and refreshing, Im sure my kids and husband will love this too! Let me try this recipe too with other potassium-packed fruits, its tasty and healthy at the same time.
I have been looking at strawberry sorbets and sherbets earlier and they all looked so good! Your peach sherbet looks equally beautiful! The color looks really cute! I will be trying this recipe this summer and I’m already excited. Thank you so much for this recipe!
This looks amazing!!! Will certainly be trying this out this week! Thank you for sharing.
Wanna try this recipe with all the fruits I have in the freezer. Thank you so much for the recipe, so simple.
Could you substitute canned coconut milk?
That would be fine, i'm sure. You would just need to add a bit of sweetener. (depending on how sweet your peaches are.)
isn't this sorbet? I thought sherbet was the fizzy powdery stuff in lollies?!
I found a great article here: http://www.thekitchn.com/whats-the-difference-between-sorbet-and-sherbet-word-of-mouth-206263. Basically, sorbet is fruit and sugar, sherbet is fruit and cream.
Peaches are my absolute favorite and I can't ever find peach ice cream or sherbet. When I saw this recipe in your email I was thrilled!! I'll be trying this right away. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!
Oh my goodness, this looks so delicious and refreshing! We definitely need to make this. Thank you for sharing at Inspire Me Wednesday. Featuring you in this week's issue.
I’m drooling right now! This looks so good. Pinned and tweeted. Thank you for bringing this to our party and we hope to see you on Monday at 7 pm. Lou Lou Girls
I'm dropping by from the Friday Frenzy link party. This looks so yummy — and so easy to make. We don't get ripe peaches where I live until in the fall. Rats! I'll have to wait until then to make this using fresh peaches. (I guess I could try canned peaches…)
I have a link party that I'm trying to grow. I invite you to share this idea (and a couple of others) at my Grandma Ideas Sharing Time link party at http://grandmaideas.com. My readers would LOVE this idea, too! The party goes from Wednesday through Friday at midnight so it ends tonight Mountain Standard Time. I know it's late on Friday. I know that tomorrow is the 4th of July. But, maybe you could still make it. I hope you can drop by and add your link before it ends. If not, you can participate in next week's link party.
All the best,
omgosh! i'm making this tonite. looks so good & super easy . thanks for sharing! happy 4th of july. maryjo
