5 minutes, 4 ingredients and a blender is all you need to make this refreshing honey peach lemonade.
So peaches are probably my favorite summer fruit. It’s a hard choice because I love strawberries, blueberries, cherries and apricots too, but peaches win. In fact, I rarely find myself baking with them because they are so sweet, juicy and delicious all by themselves, that adding other ingredients doesn’t do anything to improve them. A plain old peach is my favorite mid morning snack, afternoon snack, and late night snack.
Occasionally though, I’ll have a pile of ripe peaches on the counter and ideas will spring to mind for how to use them up. This recipe was the result of a hot summer day, having a few ingredients on hand, and throwing them together in the blender. Unlike other peach lemonade recipes, this one is easy because there is no cooking anything on the stove.
A lot of the other peach lemonade recipes I have looked at require time to cook the peaches on the stove and then cool the puree down. Maybe I’m just ignorant, but I don’t like all that work and I like the fresh taste of uncooked peaches better. So with a blender and four ingredients, you can have a refreshing glass of honey peach lemonade.
