Homemade Peach Lemonade

by

One of my favorite summer fruits is peaches and with them, I make peach lemonade!

There is a beautiful, generational family about 30 minute’s drive from us that have a stone fruit farm that we pick cherries from every July, and then toward the end of July, the bushels of peaches start showing up! There is really just nothing like a summer peach right off the tree. Sweet and juicy, they literally feel like they melt in your mouth!

And blending summer staple drink of lemonade with those amazing summer peaches is a match made in heaven!

This spring I made a blueberry lemonade for a birthday party we threw, and I just knew I wanted to try the same concept with peaches once they came in this summer!

You can use fresh or frozen peaches – if you don’t have access to in-season peaches, frozen will be the best tasting most likely. In fact, when I made this, I bought a few peaches from the store and it is not quite the season here yet – they were nothing like in season peaches so I ended up using some frozen organic peaches from Costco.

The peach lemonade is super smooth almost like peach nectar. And lightly sweet and tart – it is really a great combo if you have never tried it! I was really impressed with the flavor!

Just a couple of notes on the raw honey! Be sure not to add the raw honey to the cooked peaches until after the heat is turned off – you want to maintain all of the mineral and enzyme benefits of the raw honey. I get my raw honey from a local farmer. Take a visit to the farmer’s market and see what you can find or ask around there. You can also find it online as well from stores like Tropical Traditions.
