On my recent visit home to Oklahoma, I made sure to venture over to the nearby town of Porter where their annual Porter Peach Festival in July was getting underway. There is an orchard there I especially love to visit and I cannot leave their store without partaking in another tradition: sampling their assortment of peach desserts. They had marvelous peach topping served on top of vanilla ice cream and wonderful peach cobbler. I had so much fun surprising family and friends I visited with sacks of Porter peaches!
This recipe is a peachy dessert treat without having to heat up your oven in this summer heat. My easy, no-bake peach ice cream pie also works great with regular versions of the ingredients listed, but using the light ingredients I list for my recipe will shave off extra calories, fat and sugar. Hope today will find you just "peachy"!
"Southern Fried Bride's Peach Paradise Ice Cream Pie"
1 quart light vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt, softened
1 cup sugar free or light frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 large OR 2 medium peaches, chopped
1 (8 oz.) ready-made reduced fat graham cracker pie crust
In large bowl, combine first three ingredients. Beat with mixer at medium speed until well blended. Spoon into pie crust. Cover pie and freeze at least 4 hours or until firm. When ready to serve, remove from freezer and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy!
