Roasted peach and oatmeal cookie no-churn ice cream is full of roasted peaches, a splash of bourbon, and chunks of chewy oatmeal cookies, swirled into the easiest ice cream base. The flavor combo is AMAZING – I can’t get over it!
North Carolina had some beautiful weather last week, but now it seems like we are back to the high-heat, high-humidity days we expected for August. I don’t love summer, so by August I am over the stifling Southern summer heat, the 95% humidity days, and the mosquitos that seem to find me whenever I am outside. I think back to summers as a child when my siblings and I would join the neighborhood kids in games of kickball late into the nights and sit on the steps of the front porch after dinner debating the best way to eat popsicles with our parents, as sticky melting fruit pops inevitably dripped down our arms. Those summer days of no school and fun activities were the best.
While popsicles were a summer favorite, ice cream always reigned supreme in any season. As my family sat around the kitchen table and savored the cold, frozen goodness together, I would often tell my brother, “look, there’s a cardinal out the window!” while I snuck an extra bite of ice cream from his unmonitored bowl across the table. My parents definitely noticed and I’m not sure why they never said anything, but I got extra ice cream, so I didn’t care. Ice cream was the perfect treat for those hot North Carolina summer days, and still is now that I’m out of school and on my own. Homemade ice cream is even better than the store-bought versions, but sometimes can take so much effort to make. That’s why I love this roasted peach and oatmeal cookie no-churn ice cream so much. You get the deliciousness of homemade ice cream, with much less effort!
The combination of flavors in this roasted peach and oatmeal cookie no-churn ice cream is amazing! The sweet roasted peaches and chewy oatmeal cookies suspended in a smooth and easy no-churn ice cream base are perfectly delicious. Each bite is a little different, but each spoonful brings a bit of nostalgia for those warm, slow summer nights on the front porch.
I have had delicious peach ice cream before, but roasted peaches are a game changer! The sugars in the peaches caramelize as you cook them and taste so delicious on their own, but even better against the smooth base of ice cream. The oatmeal cookie crumble adds such great texture to the ice cream and makes it taste a tiny bit like a classic peach crumble a la mode.
