EASY PEASY PEACH RASPBERRY LEMONADE
Welcome to this month’s Pinterest Challenge hosted by Cindy and her blog County Road 407. Cindy’s inspiration is all about peach recipes for this month’s challenge. July is the month for peaches atfarmers’ markets and grocery stores.
In Colorado, we are lucky enough to get our peaches from Palisade, Colorado. With hot days and cool nights, the Colorado climate is perfect for peaches.

If you are stopping by from Barb’s blog and her peach cobbler welcome to Everyday Edits.
The same day that Cindy sent our Pinterest Challenge theme I got an email from Country Living with dozens of peach-based recipes. Because I had just made (and ate) an apple cake over the weekend I decided to go with a raspberry and peach lemonade recipe.
This easy peasy peach lemonade recipe is packed with fresh raspberries,peaches and agave honey!
The hardest part of this month’s challenge was not eating the sliced peaches needed for this raspberry peach lemonade recipe!
The raspberries add a little tart to the peach.

RASPBERRY PEACH LEMONADE RECIPE
When I scanned the Country Living’s list of peach recipes my eyes landed on this peach lemonade recipe.
The ingredient list is short and sweet. Fresh raspberries and peaches is what I call the base!
- 6 ounces raspberries (small tray size)
- 3-4 medium peaches, sliced not peeled
- 1/4 cup agave nectar
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (I used freshly squeezed and bottled lemon juice)
- topped off with a sprig of mint
With a short ingredient list my first thought was what’s the catch? If you are a frequent visitor here at Everyday Edits you know my recipes go sideways.
This recipe could not have gone any smoother.
- In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup of water and agave nectar over medium heat until the agave dissolves (about a minute).
- Add raspberries and peaches.
- Simmer, and stir occasionally until raspberries break down ( 5 minutes).
- Pour mixture in a blender or Nutra Bullet. Strain if too chunky. My bullet blender pureed the mixture.
- In a large pitcher, mix the raspberry-peach mixture with lemon juice and 5 cups of water. Chill.
It is creamy delicious with fresh ice and a spring of mint!

Now this is a drink recipe I actually am not intimidated to try! I also need a short list of ingredients. All I have to do is find Agave nectar. Not sure where but I bet I can find it. Love the added raspberries on a skewer too. Super cute. Thanks for sharing a drink recipe!
This sounds so delicious and refreshing! I can’t wait to try it out. Pinned!
This sounds so delicious and refreshing! A dessert in itself:)
Laura, your peach-raspberry lemonade looks absolutely refreshing!!! Great find on all those peach recipes, too. I must say, I have eaten several peach sorbet, a lemon tart, a peach tartlette and some other goodies during our stay here in France. And no, the diet was out the window, lol!!!
Enjoy more of your recipes and your peaches (I’ve been munching on them every time I’d get groceries),
Oh wow, this looks so cool and refreshing. I’m adding it to my list of things to make soon! Pinned.
