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!
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 sherbet. This recipe (if you can call it a recipe) uses sweetened condensed milk and frozen fruit. Something about the sweetened condensed milk makes for a smooth, creamy and delicious sherbet-like treat!
2 Ingredient Peach Sherbet
- 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)
- 1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 16 to 24 oz of frozen sliced peaches
1. 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. (I’m not sure what variety these peaches are, but they turned bright peachy pink/red in the freezer! The color of your frozen peaches will determine the color of your sherbet.)
2. Serve immediately as soft serve (which is how we normally eat it.)
3. 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!)
