We are still dealing with hot weather here. So I just prepared them one of the easiest recipe I have used before, the sweetened condensed milk ice cream. This time is an Apricot Ice Cream, with apricots instead of strawberries. I used homemade apricot jam instead of fresh apricots because the taste of apricots is so much more enhanced in jam.
This summer I’ve made more ice cream than in any other past years. My girls are bigger now and keep asking for their favorite recipes. Ice cream is one of them, for sure. Even when we are not at home my bigger daughter assures that when we return I’ll make them homemade ice cream. And after all, who wouldn’t like some delicious homemade creamy ice cream, with no preservatives, fresh and refreshing?
Serve the ice cream with fresh apricot slices, it is simply amazing. I you love fruit ice creams this apricot ice cream is the one for you.

Jam in ice cream…so smart! The higher sugar content also probably keeps the apricot pieces from freezing into little rocks! Great recipe! Pinned
wish it was hot enough here to justify having ice cream.. looks delicious! shame its winter!
That is gorgeous looking ice cream! I love the swirls and chunks of apricot in it – so pretty and tastes good too!
Ice cream with homemade apricot jam sounds like such a treat! That cone looks like perfection!
I’ve never had apricot ice cream before. It looks delicious!
Outstanding ice cream. I love apricots and now I can’t wait for summer to come down under.
Divine! This ice cream is wonderful.
That’s a new flavor ice cream for me! I would love to have this ice cream cone!
Can I use avocado instead of apricot?
Never having made ice cream, I used 500 gms of full fat creme fraiche and a jar of homemade apricot jam (around 250gms). mixed them together then put it in an ice cream maker. Delicious and not too sweet.
