Today is peach ice cream day, and since I don’t have the time to make peach ice cream from scratch, I made a sundae instead. (Another suitable alternative would be going to Chick-fil-A and getting a peach milkshake, by the way.) This recipe (I suppose we can call it that) is pretty simple and results in a delicious treat for a hot summer day. And it’s got peaches in it, so you’re getting in a serving a fruit and you can pretend it’s healthy (it’s not).
You Will Need:
- A fresh peach, pitted and diced (I prefer the yellow flesh peaches)
- Vanilla ice cream, 2-3 scoops
- Caramel sundae topping sauce
- A graham cracker, crushed or crumbled up
- Whipped cream and maraschino cherry (optional)
Step 1: Take half of your diced peach and place it in the bottom of an ice cream bowl.
Step 2: Put 2-3 scoops of ice cream on top of the peach. Top the ice cream with the crushed up graham cracker.
Step 3: Sprinkle on the rest of the diced peach and drizzle on all the caramel sauce you want. (The bottle of caramel sauce I used was running low.)
Step 4: Finish it off with the optional whipped cream and cherry and enjoy!
I really like this because you can build your own sundae by choosing the toppings you do or don’t want. This is my favorite combo of toppings because you get the fruitiness of the peach, the crunch of the graham cracker, the ooey-gooeyness of the caramel sauce, and who doesn’t love whipped cream and a cherry on top? The textures and flavors of this particular sundae just make me so happy inside and I wanted to share that happiness. This is one of my favorite guilty pleasures.
