Nectarine ice cream is uncomplicated ice cream, simply pure deliciousness scooped onto a golden cone. Nectarines add vibrant flavor, and a splash of peach liqueur and a squeeze of honey complement the fruit and make it easy to scoop straight from the freezer.
When ice cream is this simple and this good, it’s all about the fruit so choose the best nectarines (or peaches) you can find. If you could bottle up all that’s magical about summer into a single dessert, you’d have this blissful ice cream. Top with nectarine slices and enjoy!
