If you can eat an entire can of ice cream in one sitting, please raise your hand. I know I can. I try not to, but I know I can.
Ever since I decided to stick to eating clean, I knew I had to find a way to incorporate my favorite foods into my lifestyle or it was never going to be successful. Cheat meals are great and all, but they are rare and I need something I like that I can actually eat (almost) on a daily basis.
So, among other things, I started making healthy ice cream at home. Believe it or not, it’s much easier than it sounds. You don’t even need an ice cream maker.

HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY ICE CREAM
Making ice cream at home is really simple and I LOVE how you know exactly what you’re eating. No hidden artificial sweeteners, no additives… Just clean, wholesome ingredients that will make your ice cream super flavorful.
If you want to make healthy ice cream at home, all you really need to do is swap the unhealthy, sugary ingredients for the equally flavorful, but healthier options. Easy peasy.
For example, in this healthy peach ice cream recipe, we…
- substitute heavy cream with coconut milk
- substitute white sugar with either raw honey or pure maple syrup
HOW TO MAKE PEACH ICE CREAM
You can make healthy homemade peach ice cream without an ice cream maker. It’s mess-free, fuss-free, and it’s basically just tossing all the ingredients into the food processor and pulsing until smooth.
Once smooth, transfer your soon-to-be ice cream into a freezer-safe container and freeze for a minimum of 4 to 6 hours until mostly solid.
That’s really all you need to do.
HOW LONG DOES HOMEMADE PEACH ICE CREAM LAST?
Well, that really depends on your self-control. But, if stored properly, homemade ice cream can last for up to a month, allowing you to enjoy peach ice cream throughout the summer!
