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.

Peach Slushies

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups white grape juice, cold
  • 2 lbs peaches (about 6 medium)

Directions:

  1. Blanch, peel and slice peaches.  Place on a baking sheet in a single layer and freeze.
  2. Add frozen peaches and white grape juice to a blender and puree until smooth.
  3. Enjoy immediately if the consistency is right, or place in freezer and stir every 30 minutes until it’s as slushy as you want.
  4. Leftovers can be stored in the freezer, but will need to thaw to a slushy consistency before enjoying.

Notes:

  • 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.
