Fresh Peach Ice Cream - the best homemade ice cream

This past weekend, my guys were away at  STEM Cub Scout camp.  While they were roughing it in tents by a campfire, I was planning the perfect me-weekend!

In preparation for my night-in, I headed to my local Walmart to purchase my supplies.

Checklist for perfect me-weekend:

  • Delicious dinner…CHECK!
  • Comfy jammies…CHECK!
  • Lotion, potions and polish for home mani/pedi…CHECK, CHECK and CHECK!
  • Indulgent treat…CHECK!
  • Great movie….CHECK!

I chose Pitch Perfect 2 for my movie.  Head to Walmart to grab the exclusive Pitch Perfect 2 Blu-Ray/Soundtrack combo pack. Soundtrack includes some of your favorite songs from Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 (while supplies last).Fresh Peach Ice Cream - the best homemade ice cream

I popped in the soundtrack while I was getting everything ready.  Thank heavens I don’t live on a busy street…my neighbors definitely didn’t need to see (or hear!) my signing and dancing!

In honor of the Bellas and all of their shenanigans, I made Peach-Perfect ice cream.  Get it….peach…perfect…yeah, I know it was lame.Fresh Peach Ice Cream - the best homemade ice cream

I used my recipe for traditional vanilla ice cream – which is the best homemade ice cream recipe, by the way.  At the end, I added some diced, fresh peaches and stuck it in the freezer.

It turned out peach perfect! (OK, I really need to stop this!)
