Delicious summery fresh peach lemonade with great flavors.
Summer vacation is over, and my daughter’s school opening today and tomorrow my son start to going to school. Thinking of those crazy mornings I am already dreading now. I have to manage somehow; also I am not a planning person I make dishes according to whatever comes in handy at that time. Never made a plan, even if I made one it is not going to work for me for sure. So I admire those who make a plan and stick to it. I like to cook everything from the scratch with occasional refrigerator meals. Fresh is always best. That is why I made this Fresh peach lemonade too.
I don’t know when I got hooked to peach lemonade it has been in my do list for long time. You all know my list is growing, don’t know when I would find the time to finish all. May be one at a time, my kids loves lemonade a lot, they like to sample the lemonade at HEB which is one of my favorite grocery store and is close to my house. I have already tried few lemonade recipes, one from my home town Kulukki Sarbath/ ShakenLimeade/Lemonade , Blueberry Lemon-Limeade and Lychee lemonade.
When I looked for peach lemonade I got tons of variations, some using fresh fruit puree other mash it in pitcher with water. However this one recipe stand out differently as it involved cooking of fruit in simple syrup for some time. I liked that part and decided to try it. I made only two serving as not sure my kiddos will like it or not.
First you need to cook the fresh cut peaches until soft; then original recipe asked for mashing the fruit. I don’t like wasting anything so blended it in a blender and used the mixture to mix in with lemon juice and water. This is really refreshing one at the same time tasty too. Give this simple recipe a try if you can get hold of fresh peaches, here I can get fresh Texas peaches, they are naturally sweet ones.
Here comes the recipe.
First cook peach with sugar
Once it is cooked really well then
Blend them into puree with lemon juice , water
Then add some lemon slice and ice and enjoy.
