Grilled Peaches and Porter Ice Cream

I love Porters and Stouts, but when it’s a million degrees outside, like it is right now, I usually skip them and go with an IPA or Pale Ale. I couldn’t get enough Stouts while on our trip to Minnesota last year. To me, cold weather and stouts/porters just go together. Now, this doesn’t mean I avoid them all together, I just usually sip some of Huck’s.

When Dianna from The Kitchen Prep asked me to be apart of her Ice Cream Social, I instantly started brainstorming ideas.

I knew I wanted to use a beer from TBC, and after our trip to Fort Peirce, I knew I wanted a use Grilled Peaches. I asked the brewers at TBC if they had anything fruity I could use for my dessert, and the answer was no. But, they did recommend their Baltic Porter. At first I wasn’t sure about using a Porter with Grilled Peaches?

I started off using the Porter in a basic ice cream recipe. After consuming about half the batch, I deciding to try adding the Grilled Peaches. I almost keep the recipe as is! It was that good, but I had my heart set on Grilled Peach Ice Cream.

I experimented with the recipe a few time {AKA we have a TON of ice cream in our freezer, currently!!} The final batch was a complete success. The grill helped caramelize the sugars in the peaches and give them a roasted, charred flavor. That paired great with the sweet beer, cream and sugar.

I’ve now found the perfect way to enjoy a stout or porter on those hot South Florida days.

They all sound amazing, but the Nutella-Swirled Ice Cream is pour genius, and you don’t need an ice cream maker!!

Serves 6-8
Prep time 1 hour
Website Bless This Mess- Fresh Peach Ice Cream
{Reminder: since the beer isn’t cooked, there is alcohol in this recipe. Great for the adults; not so great for children}

Ingredients

  • 3-4 Medium Peaches (Pitted and cut into thick slices)
  • Cooking Spray (Optional)
  • 1/2 cup 2% Milk
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup Sweet Porter or Stout
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt

Directions

Preheat the grill or grill pan over medium heat. Lightly spray the grill or peaches with cooking spray
to prevent from sticking, if desired.

Place peaches flesh side down and cooking until peaches start
to brown. Flip.

Once peaches have nice grill marks on both sides, place half of the peaches in a food processer and blend until smooth. You can add some of the milk to help thin out the mixture if needed.

Dice the additional peaches into small pieces. Place in a bowl, in the refrigerator to cool.

Add the blended peaches to the refrigerator and cool for 30 minutes.

While the peaches are cooking, whisk together the Milk, Heavy Cream, Beer, Vanilla, Sugar, and Salt.

Once the sugar is dissolved, place in the refrigerator until the peach mixture is ready.

Combine the Beer mixture with the pureed Peaches and add to an ice cream maker. (For the ice
cream maker I was using, it took about 20 minutes for the mixture to be a soft serve consistency.)

Add the diced up peaches half way through the process.

Enjoy right away or freeze to enjoy later.
