This Fresh Peach Lemonade recipe is a cool, refreshing, and great way to use in-season peaches. This is an easy recipe to enjoy during peach season or any time of the year!
Peaches are in season, and I love it! Every week I come home with 5-7 pounds of peaches from my local farmers market, and they are all devoured or used in recipes by the end of the week. My family has been enjoying them in various ways, and I have 2 other peach recipes for you this week, so stay tuned!
I love fresh, homemade lemonade in the summer. Now peach lemonade in the summer is just pure bliss–it’s cool, refreshing, and made with my favorite in-season fruit!
I also like making a frozen beverage out of this lemonade by mixing ice and peach lemonade in a blender until smooth and slushy. Enjoy!
Recipe and Flavor Variations:
- Sometimes I like to mash 10-12 fresh mint leaves and the peaches for a refreshing flavor.
- You can use lime juice instead of lemon juice.
- Instead of peaches, you can use 10 ounces of raspberries, strawberries, or watermelon.
How long is it good for:
SERVE: You can leave the lemonade out at room temperature for up to 2 hours before it will need to be stored in the refrigerator.
STORE: The peach lemonade will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Make sure you give it a quick stir before serving.
FREEZE: You can freeze this recipe. Place the lemonade in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag and freeze for up to 2 months.
