Gluten Free and Vegan Peach Almond Ice Cream Recipe

Difficulty: Medium | Total Time: depends on ice cream maker | Active Time: | Makes: 1 batch

Peaches are in high season here in Colorado and we are making the most of it. This week I made a gluten free (of course), fruit sweetened, dairy free, vegan Peach Almond Ice Cream.

To increase the peach factor, I diced up more fresh peaches and mooshed them into the ice cream after it came out of the ice cream maker.

  • 1 cup almonds, soaked overnight, discard soaking water
  • 1 cup water
  • 3-4 peaches
  • 5 dates
  • 4 drops stevia

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  1. Place soaked almonds and water in vita-mix
  2. Blend on highest setting until smooth, about 1 minute, add a bit more water if blending is a challenge
  3. Remove almond mixture from vita-mix and strain through a fine mesh paint strainer bag, discarding solids
  4. Place almond mixture in rinsed out vita-mix container, blend in peaches and dates on highest setting until smooth
  5. Blend in stevia, vanilla and lemon juice
