Peach Crisp Vegan Ice Cream

Vegan ice creams are my favorite recipes to develop and when you taste this vegan peach crisp ice cream, you’ll see why. Vegan ice creams are delicious!

So many recipes feature peaches while they’re in season. I love a good fruit crisp, and when I was testing this ice cream, I kept thinking “This needs cinnamon.” Always on the lookout for good ice cream toppings, I thought a nice crisp topping sounded great. I tossed one together and it worked! Even if you don’t make this ice cream, you can try the crisp topping on your favorite vegan ice cream.

I always use maple syrup, but if you like making your vegan ice cream with another sweetener, like agave, that would work. For the amount, I start with five tablespoons of maple syrup and then go up from there. The ingredients are mixed in a bowl before blending and freezing, so you’ll have a chance to taste the sweetness and adjust it. I’m sensitive to the sweetness of sugar, so I stop at five tablespoons.

You can also experiment with the brown sugar on the oats. I tried 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) and found it to be too sweet. I’ve reduced the brown sugar to 2 tablespoons in this recipe. Try it and see what you think.

You also don’t have to limit this recipe to peaches. Strawberries would work great!

This recipe can be doubled and still fit into the tub of your ice cream maker. If it doesn’t all fit, any additional unfrozen ice cream can be popped into your freezer in a covered container. Take it out and stir the ice cream every 30 minutes until it’s frozen to the desired consistency. In the past, I’ve filled the tub of my ice cream maker to the very top a couple of times. The ice cream doesn’t expand as it freezes, so it’s fine.

If you prefer a simpler, less sugary topping, roasted sliced almonds add a rich flavor and crunchy texture. Preheat your oven’s broiler on low broil, if the setting is available. (If using a regular broil setting, place the baking shelf three or four levels down from the top of your oven.) Spread the sliced almonds onto a baking sheet and toast them until they begin to brown, turning occasionally. Remove from the oven, let cool, and sprinkle on your ice cream. These make a good healthy snack, too.

Instructions
To make the ice cream:
  1. After peeling and dicing your fresh peaches, set aside one half of them (about 1 cup).
  2. Put 1/2 of the peaches, and all of the rest of the ingredients into a medium to large mixing bowl. Stir gently with a spoon to blend well, and taste to adjust sweetness.
  3. Pour the bowl contents into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  4. Add the blended ice cream mix, along with the second 1/2 of the peaches, to your ice cream maker and freeze the ice cream according to the manufacturer's directions, about 25 to 30 minutes (or more if needed). In the meantime, prepare the crisp topping.
  5. If the ice cream is still soft serve after freezing in the ice cream maker, put it in the freezer in a covered container for 20 to 30 minutes, or until it's hard enough to scoop.
