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 makerOpens in a new tab..

Don’t believe me? Keep reading 🙂

    Hi Lacey, love all your recipes!

    Do you think this ice-cream could work using frozen peach slices? I have a huge bag in the freezer and I mostly use them for smoothies, but this looks like a MUCH better option for those babies!

    Thanks for all the ideas 🙂

  2. The recipe says to puree two cups of peaches and add to the ice cream mixture, but never mentions again the more coarsely chopped cup-and-a-half of peaches that were set aside. What are these reserved for? The picture shows only sliced peaches served on top of the ice cream.
    Thank you;
