Old Fashion Apricot Ice Cream

It's Apricot Season! Ripe juicy apricots and warmer weather beg for homemade ice cream, and this easy recipe does the trick! It can be modified for other fruit, too- peach would be awesome. Plus, it's egg-free, so no risk of scrambled eggs!

Farm Fresh Apricot Ice Cream

A few years back, my husband bought me an ice cream maker for my birthday. I wish I could say that I use it all the time but unfortunately I don't. However, this last week, apricots started dropping from our tree in bucket loads. We vowed we wouldn't let any of them go to waste, so when my husband suggested we make some ice cream, I jumped at the opportunity.

Super Creamy and Fruity Made With Apricots At Their Peak Ripeness!

This recipe couldn't be simpler. There's no cooking involved (which is great when the house is already super warm) and it only needs a few ingredients. Simple is usually best!

A few notes on equipment

  • This is the ice cream maker I have and use! It can make up to 4 quarts of ice cream and we love it. It works great and we get perfect ice cream every time.

  • If you've never made ice cream in a maker before, you do need lots of ice and rock or ice cream salt. Ice is easy to find, and so is rock salt. It's typically located with the kosher salt in your major grocery store. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME! Kosher salt is a lot smaller than rock salt!

  • Also, as a fun little extra, I found these awesome ice cream containers on amazon. They add a little professional touch to your ice cream and make sharing super easy.

Print Recipe

2 1/2 c apricots, peeled and pitted

1 juice of one lemon

1 c sugar

2 c heavy cream

1 1/2 c whole milk

1 t vanilla


  1. Prep your apricots. Peel them with a veggie peeler or small knife. This part can be a bit tricky, especially if your apricots are super ripe, but it is totally necessary and worth it. Then, cut them and remove the pits. Add them to a blender.

  2. Add the juice of one lemon and the sugar to the blender and blend until smooth (or almost smooth if you like a few chunks of fruit in your ice cream).

  3. Add the heavy cream, milk, and vanilla to the apricot mixture and mix by hand. DO NOT blend.

  4. Add the mixture to the canister of your ice cream maker and mix according to your maker's instructions.

  5. Once done, freeze your ice cream for about two hours to allow to set up.
