Fresh Peach Lemonade – Use fresh peaches to make this summer favorite! A fruity and refreshing lemonade that is perfect on a hot summer day.
One thing I learned when we moved to Colorado 10 years ago, is that we have a huge peach crop here! Growing up I always though peaches mainly came from Georgia, but that is completely true. Palisade peaches are from Colorado and they are fresh, juicy, and absolutely delicious!
So every year once they are in season, I love finding new things to make with them. And this peach lemonade has quickly turned into a summer favorite.
What’s In Peach Lemonade
- Lemon Juice
It doesn’t get much easier than that! Any kind of fresh peaches you can find work great for this recipe. You can even use frozen peaches that are thawed if it isn’t the right season.
How To Make Peach Lemonade From Scratch
- Start by bring the peaches, sugar and water to a boil. Once it is boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
- Using an immersion blender, or pour the mixture into a traditional blender, puree until it is completely smooth.
- Pour the peach puree through a strainer to get rid of the pulp. Place in the fridge to cool completely.
- Once it is nice and cold combine the peach mixture with lemon juice and stir to combine.
This is best served chilled over ice to make it extra refreshing and delicious.
Peach lemonade will last in the fridge for a few days. Just give it a quick stir before serving. This will quickly become your go to summer drink because it is so easy to make! And a fun twist on your classic Fresh Squeezed Lemonade.
If you want to make this an adult version for a party or get together, just add vodka! I love Vodka Lemonade and adding the peaches makes it even better and more summery!
