Peach Sherbet

peach sherbet

This is the latest variation of the Buttermilk Sherbet recipe, and I think it might be the best one yet. I was lucky to find some perfectly sweet peaches at the farmer’s market.

Peach Sherbet

2 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches (to puree)
2 cups buttermilk (I used organic low-fat)
¾ cup agave nectar (or 1 cup sugar)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup diced fresh peaches (save these to add at the end of churning)

Peel the peaches by cutting an “X” in the bottom and dropping them into boiling water for a minute. Drain and run under cold water to cool, and then pull the peel off. Remove the pit and slice.

Puree 2 cups of peach slices in the food processor and then mix with the next three ingredients. Chill mixture in fridge for one hour. Then put it in the ice cream maker and turn it on.

At the very end, add the 1 cup of diced peaches and churn for one minute more to mix them in.

This summer, Maria I and I made a bunch of lower-fat, lower-calorie frozen desserts. Here are the ones Maria made:

Guava Sherbet
Mango Sherbet
Sorbetto di Limone

And so far, I’ve made

Strawberry Buttermilk Sherbet
Blackberry Sherbet
Lemon-Ginger Yogurt Sorbet
Blueberry Frozen Yogurt (not pictured because none of my photos came out, but the recipe came from The Perfect Scoop and was delicious)

And here's another one: Fig Sherbet. It wasn't much to look at (kind of a tan color with little specks of green in it), but the fig flavor was very strong. I used the Strawberry Buttermilk Sherbet recipe but subbed two cups of figs. For fig lovers only!

So far I have made peach, blackberry, cherry and chocolate ice cream, all in the last two weeks.

I think I have an addiction.

Now I am going to buy buttermilk and start in on your recipes!

I seem to think about ice cream - all the time at the moment!

Oh Yum!! That looks soooo good!! I can't believe I have lasted this long without an ice cream maker! If only I had more room.

Hi Annie, they both look really good! You and Maria have both made some really delicious looking buttermilk sherbets over the summer. I'm going to pass it on to my sister so she can try it. She's pretty good at trying new recipes.

Thanks for sharing and posting these great photos. Have a great evening Annie!

Hi Annie, I just wanted to let you know that Colleen on ST posted an FYI on the Spain on the Road Again show airing in October. When I checked, I finally found it on my PBS here. The Madrid episode airs on 10/5/08 at 6:00 pm. Maybe you should check your station for the first week in October, I bet you'll see it now. Hope you find it.

Kathy, thanks for the head's up! I'll check the October listings. And I'm so glad you'll get to see it before your trip to Spain!

That looks so delicious! I'd love to make this one but I've never found flavorful peaches in Arizona. I might try the fig sherbet since we do get some really sweet ones from California.
