Apricot Ice Cream

Apricot Ice Cream

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?


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, but this time 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.


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

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.
