Peach Ice Cream - trinalin thinks things through — LiveJournal
Peach Ice Cream
When I got home from school today, I started making peach ice cream. I started with Elsa's Bailey's Irish Cream ice cream recipe and modified it a bit. So far, it tastes good. I think I should have cut out some of the Half & Half, however, since the mixer became over full once it was done freezing. And it'll be interesting to see how the texture goes when I try the set ice cream tomorrow. Here's the recipe, for those curious:

3 cups of Half & Half (I think probably 2 1/2 cups would have sufficed)
4 peaches, peeled and then pureed
1 small pkg of Egg Beaters
3/4 cup of Splenda

Mix and pour into ice cream mixer. 25 minutes later, voila!

Some of the ice cream stuck to the side of the ice cream freezer bucket, so I let it sit a bit and later poured the somewhat thawed goo into a cup. Mmmm, peach milkshake! :-)

Tomorrow, maybe, I'll figure out the calories and whatnot. And let you know how the final thing turned out.

EDIT: Before you try this recipe out, wait until I get the kinks worked out. I ended up with white ice that tastes of peaches instead of peach ice cream. I think I sprained my wrist scraping enough "ice cream" out into my bowl.

How are the egg beaters for putting in a recipe where they won't be cooked? I don't know what's in them... do you not have to worry about eating them raw?

They're pasturized so they're safer to eat raw than real eggs.

This sounds yummy, except:

1) I don't know what Half & Half is
2) I don't know what Splenda is
3) I don't know what Egg Beaters are
4) I don't have an ice cream mixer!

Oh well, i'm off to go and bake fairy cakes now...

Heh - I was in a bit of a hurry when I wrote that entry, so I couldn't universalize it.

Half & Half is half cream, half whole milk. It's sold as coffee creamer in the US.

Splenda is a "new" sweetener on the market here. It's made of a sugar that the human body can't break down, so it tastes like sugar but has no calories.

Egg beaters are egg whites dyed to look yellow. They're a popular no cholesterol food item.

Darn shame about the ice cream mixer, however... elsaf got me one for Christmas and I love it. :-)
