Making homemade sorbet and fruit purees may feel somewhat intimidating, but you wouldn’t believe how quick and simple it is! There’s nothing more satisfying than taking fresh, ripe, sweet seasonal fruit, straight from the market, adding it to your food processor or blender with just a handful of other ingredients, and watching it transform into a refreshing, vibrant, delicious frozen treat. You can enjoy this peach sorbet by itself, or follow this recipe in which I take it a step further to create a creamy, dreamy Peaches & Cream no-churn twist with the addition of vanilla ice cream. Simply combine the sorbet and ice cream with a spatula just until a beautiful swirl forms. Then freeze, scoop, garnish with lemon zest and enjoy! Use this recipe as a base for other fruit purees like strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries to create a rainbow of yummy summer treats!
