Peach Ice Cream Recipe and Books

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

It’s peach season!  We love peaches and books about peaches. 
This summer my husband read James and the Giant Peach to the kids at night. 
We have been on a Roald Dahl kick lately and I’ll share some of his other books and treats to go along with them this month.
We made peach ice cream to go along with this book.  Kids can help pour the ingredients in and mix it together. Then let your ice cream maker do the hard part. It tastes amazing! My husband created this recipe. It is not the healthiest but it is a once-a-year treat we look forward to, to celebrate our local Peach Days.

My daughter is not fond of scary stories (she doesn’t even like most Disney princess movies because they have a witch) so I wasn’t sure how she was going to like this book because it is a little strange.  My husband did a great job of stopping to explain things as they read so she realized the aunts in the story were crazy, not scary. She laughed and didn’t want to stop reading when the chapters ended.

One of my husband’s childhood favorites is Each Peach Pear Plum by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. My daughter memorized the entire book as a poem for a school book report in 2nd grade. Our kids love this book.  I happened to find a copy of the classroom size version (2ft x 3ft)  for 50 cents at a thrift shop. This is definitely one you’ll want to have in your library.

This weekend we get to go visit Grandma to celebrate Peach Days in Brigham City, Utah.  We’ll be stopping at the fruit stands along the highway, reading books with Grandma and making more peach treats.

Yum! We just bought an ice cream maker... but here is my dilemma. How do I make ice cream healthy and still have it taste as good? Any suggestions?

Reply to @Gina: That is hard to do but I've seen several gelato recipes that have fewer ingredients and less dairy to keep it a little healthier. Here is one Peach Gelato recipe:
