Fresh Peach Lemonade – Refreshing summer favorite, homemade simple with fresh juicy peaches and lemons for a delicious thirst quencher. Cold over ice for a perfect drink.
I’m into drinks lately friends. Maybe it’s the scorching heat we’ve been having. Like that heat wave last week that left the ground dry and my lips parched. That’s what it is. I’m blaming it on the heatwave.
Anywho….all I can think about is green tea and lemonade and chilled coffee. Who needs dinner when there are this many drink options, right?
I haven’t officially been to the orchard yet to get peaches but even at the grocery stores they’re simply irresistible! And the truth is that every time I buy them I want to use them all in drinks and I forget to save some for a mean peach pie or cobbler.
Well that time will come I’m sure. But what do you think are some other great ways to use peaches? What’s your favorite recipe using this peachy keen fruit?
What you’ll love about this recipe:
- It uses only whole ingredients, nothing frozen, nothing canned. But you can substitute with frozen peaches if you’d like.
- Only 3 ingredients!
- Quenches your summer thirst. Perfect for picnics.

Melanie I just made this and it taste like heaven! It wasn’t to sweet, and it is very refreshing for these hot summer days. Thx for sharing such a great recipe
Yay, Ally! So glad you enjoyed the lemonade. Very refreshing. Thanks for taking the time to write!
I love the container!!! Where did you find it?
Are you referring to the glass carafe? It’s been several years since I purchased it but I think I found it at Christmas Tree Shops. Heres’s a similar one from Amazon (affiliate) http://amzn.to/2tevgD6
Are you supposed to remove the peaches skin before you cook them into the syrup??
Nope. That’s the beauty of this particular recipe. But I should note that if you don’t have a powerful blender, you may want to take the time to do that. I have a Vitamix and it takes everything and purees it so nicely. Good luck Gabby! Let me know how it goes!
