So big news in my small corner of the world….we are moving! It’s all happening really quickly too! By August 1st we will be calling North Carolina our new home! Yikes! I’m loaded with amazing emotions, but most of all really excited. This move has been something my husband and I have wanted for a long time and now that it’s here it’s kind of surreal! But my life is now filled with boxes, bubble wrap, and packing tape! That part hasn’t been too exciting! Who knew over 7 years in one house how much can accumulate?! With all that being said I’m going to apologize now if posting is limited as we transition to our new home. But I’m super excited for the kitchen that awaits me in the new house!
Now here is a little sweet treat. Since it’s super hot outside in South Florida and there isn’t much you want to do outside most of our weekend was spent inside…it also had to do with packing but we’ll forget about that. Anyway, to do something fun with the little ones we made ice cream, but a Paleo version which honestly in my opinion pretty much rocks. The local farmers market had baskets of peaches so the flavor I went with wasn’t very hard. I think the hardest part was trying to name this ice cream. I wanted to name it peach cobbler ice cream but ended up with Cinnamon Peach Ice Cream. Either way it was the perfect little sweet treat on a hot weekend. I had a cup with the little ones because after the Saturday WOD at CrossFit I gosh darn deserved it! I’m still a little sore from that workout! Anywho, enjoy the ice cream folks! Now I’m off to continue packing! Anyone want to pack for me?
Cinnamon Peach Ice Cream
1 can coconut milk (16 ounce)
3 egg yolks
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 ripe peaches diced, plus more for topping
Combine coconut milk, egg yolks, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a sauce pan and bring to a low boil while whisking.
Remove from heat and let cool. Strain mixture into a medium bowl and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
While the mixture is in the refrigerator, place diced peaches, maple syrup, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir until peaches soften slightly, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove peaches and allow to cool.
Place ice cream mixture into an ice cream maker and run until desired consistency is almost reached. About 5 minutes before completed pour peach mixture into ice cream and continue to process.
Serve right away or keep in an airtight container in the freezer and serve when ready. Top with additional peaches and cinnamon for an extra touch and enjoy!
