Cooking Light ~ Sounds like Summer

Our Cooking Light theme for July ~ Sounds like summer. We are having an alfresco virtual supper. I just new I had to find something with these delicious Chilton County peaches. They were fresh and juicy on their own. I found this Cooking Light recipe . . . Yes ~ Cooking Light!
Peach Ice Cream
3 cups sliced peeled peaches (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place the peaches in a blender or food processor; process until finely chopped. Combine peaches and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Pour peach mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Spoon ice cream into a freezer-safe container; cover and freeze for 2 hours or until firm.
I left my peaches just a little bit chunky. The flavors are fresh and summery! Now let's see what everyone else has brought for our summer Alfresco Supper ... Jerry is starting us off with a Grilled Pizza with Prosciutto, Arugula and Lemon
Jamie is bringing a Summer Peach and Tomato Salad
Val has our main dish of Poached Salmon with Creamy Herb Sauce
MaryAnn has made a Lemon Vegetable Risotto
Roz has the perfect compliment to my Peach Ice Cream~ she's made Chocolate Amaretti Peaches.
Don't forget, that y'all are welcome to join in our Cooking Light virtual supper with the blog hop!

Y'all enjoy~

So refreshing Sandi. It makes me crave local peaches but we have only just nicely picked local cherries.
