A sweet way to use up fresh peaches.
Question: What happens when you buy a bunch of fresh fruit from the fruit stand near your house?
Answer: You want to find all the ways to use this fresh fruit while you have access to it.
I found the best fresh peaches at a fruit stand by our house and ended up using three in the first day. I had to go back the following day to get more because they are so good!
This recipe is one way that we are using those fresh peaches. It takes a bit more time to prepare than just taking a scoop of ice cream from the freezer, but I promise it’s worth it!
Caramel Peach Ice Cream Bowls
- 1 cup vanilla ice cream
- 1 large peach, peeled and cubed
- 2 Tablespoons caramel sauce
- 1 graham cracker, crushed
- Pinch of cinnamon
In a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, add the peach cubes and cook for about 5 minutes, until warmed and slightly softer. Remove from heat.
Place 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream in two bowls. Top each serving of ice cream with half of the peach cubes, 1 Tablespoon of caramel sauce, 1/2 of the crushed graham crackers, and a pinch of cinnamon. Serve immediately!
I like my vanilla ice cream just a bit soft when I’m eating it, so I take the ice cream out of the freezer before I start warming the peaches.
