Do you love ripe, flavorful peaches? Is biting into a big, juicy peach is one of your favorite treats when it’s hot outside? Me too!
Peaches are one of the reasons I love summer, and peach slushies are one of the reasons I love peaches. These slushies couldn’t be any easier to make and they’re so refreshing on a hot summer day!
Peaches are such a versatile fruit. Eat them fresh, grill them and top them with ice cream and granola, make them into a fresh peach pie, or blend them into a slushy! The options are as delicious as they are endless.
These peach slushies have no added sugar, so you’ll feel a lot better about giving it to your kids than a commercial slushy that’s filled with all sort of questionable ingredients and sweeteners. Just blanch, peel & slice your peaches before laying them out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Freeze them, blend with white grape juice and you’re done! It’s so simple. Once the peaches are frozen, it only takes a couple of minutes to put it all together.
- 4 cups white grape juice, cold
- 2 lbs peaches (about 6 medium)
- Blanch, peel and slice peaches. Place on a baking sheet in a single layer and freeze.
- Add frozen peaches and white grape juice to a blender and puree until smooth.
- Enjoy immediately if the consistency is right, or place in freezer and stir every 30 minutes until it’s as slushy as you want.
- Leftovers can be stored in the freezer, but will need to thaw to a slushy consistency before enjoying.
- To blanch peaches, bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil. Gently drop peaches into the boiling water for 30-60 seconds (less time for more-ripe fruit). Remove to an ice bath (to stop the cooking process). Skins will slip right off.
- This recipe makes approximately 8 1-cup servings.
