Just Peachy Lemonade

Posted by on Sunday, July 6th, 2014


Just Peachy Lemonade is a refreshing way to beat this Tennessee heat.  The peaches are ready to harvest around here.  Saturday I whipped up some peach lemonade,with fresh peaches and real lemons, and it was all gone by nightfall.  It was a hit here at home!

  • 2 cups peach puree (from fresh or frozen peaches)
  • 2 cups fresh lemon juice  (about 12 lemons)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • cold water

Puree fresh or frozen peaches in a Magic Bullet or a blender.  Pour peach puree into a gallon pitcher, add lemon juice, sugar, and stir until sugar is dissolved.  Then fill pitcher with cold water and ice.  Find a happy place to sit a spell, prop up your feet, relax and sip peachy lemonade.

This recipe can easily be halved to make 1/2 gallon.

    This looks so good Tara! I’m getting in some fresh peaches from GA today, so I think I’ll make some.

    Can I ask where you got that container for the lemonade? Is it plastic? Oh, I am going to try that peach lemonade next summer.

    This peach lemonade sound sooo good. I have a lemon tree and twice a year the lemons are plentiful.The fresh or the frozen peaches would be wonderful.

    This recipe seem wonderful. I have a lemon tree that produces abundently twice a year. The peaches would make a tastey combination.

    This drink sounds luscious. I am thinking of even cheating and using Crystal light and adding a coupleof lemons and the peaches. I can’t quite imagine rolling and squeezing all those lemons. Could just peel or zest saving the zest in freezer and blend up the whole lemons minus the fruit and the white and putting in my Vitamix as it should do up the lemons and seeds and then could puree the peaches to add in a big jar. I have a tiny Meyer lemon tree that has one tiny lemon on it which looks more like a lime. None of the other flowers were evidently polinated though I tried to take a little brush and brush the flowers myself. Little at a time. I am in Florida but a mobile home spot in senior park doesn’t leave much room for a peach and lemon tree. I used to have a huge grapefruit tree in the back until the County took out all the citrus back when there was a canker scare. probably was a good thing as Wilma came through there and made a real mess. Almost raised our roof; tore off neighbors guest room and his carport with the roof off the mobile too. Same for several others around us. I figure that tree might have dropped on the roof if it were still there when that came through in 2005. But it had such good tasting fruit even though it didn’t look the prettiest. Do have to try this recipe one or more ways. I need to avoid the sugar though. I need to try stevia.
