Apricot and Granny Smith Apple Balsamic Ice Cream

Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Servings 5 cups


  • Food Processor
  • Large Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Ice Cream Maker



  • Begin by chopping the apricots into slices. Place the slices into a food processor bowl, setting aside a few pieces to incorporate later. Add the lemon juice and Granny Smith Apple balsamic vinegar and process until you have a smooth puree.
  • Add the sugar to the cream and milk and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved (this will take a couple of minutes). Continue stirring until you can no longer feel grains of sugar. Stir in vanilla extract.
  • Combine the cream mixture and the apricot puree. Whisk together until mixed completely. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until very cold.
  • Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and run according to your machine’s directions. Once the ice cream thickens and is almost done, add in the reserved chopped apricot slices, and let the machine run until they are well incorporated.
  • The ice cream is done when ingredients are well-mixed in and the texture is soft. For firmer ice cream, place in the freezer. Take it out of the freezer 10 minutes before serving to allow it to soften enough to scoop.
