Almond Ice Cream

Almond Ice Cream with Sliced Peaches and Pound Cake

If you’ve been following my posts on frozen treats, you can tell that I love almond anything! We were having some friends over for dinner the other night so when I was at the Farmer’s Market I picked up some fresh peaches to use for some kind of dessert. I decided to go with something relatively easy so I made this ice cream and served it with fresh sliced and sweetened peaches over a slice of store bought pound cake. It was a fitting ending to our meal and evening together! I cheated and added a little yogurt to the recipe because it’s so darn healthy. My husband didn’t complain about this tasting like yogurt so I think it will pass as ice cream with just a bit of a healthy twist.

Ingredients
1 C. whole milk
1 C. heavy cream
1 C. Fage 0% Greek Yogurt
3/4 C. granulated sugar
1 t. almond extract

1. Mix all the ingredients together with a mixer until the sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes.
2. Refrigerate for an hour.
3. Freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions in your ice cream maker. It took about 25 minutes in my Cuisinart.
Serves 4-6
