EASY PEACH RASPBERRY LEMONADE

Summer is the season for fresh fruit like peaches and raspberries at farmer’s 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.

Recently, I received this 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.

PEACHES

This easy-peasy peach lemonade recipe is packed with fresh berries, peaches and agave honey! The hardest part of this recipe was not eating the sliced peaches needed for this raspberry peach lemonade!

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.

RASPBERRY AND PEACH LEMONADE REFRESHER FOR SUMMER

The ingredient list is short and sweet. Fresh Raspberries and peaches are what I call the base!

INGREDIENTS

  • 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.

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup of water and agave nectar over medium heat until the agave dissolves (about a minute).
  2. Add raspberries and peaches.
  3. Simmer, and stir occasionally until berries break down ( 5 minutes).
  4. Pour mixture in a blender or Nutra Bullet. Strain if too chunky. My bullet blender pureed the mixture.
  5. In a large pitcher, mix the raspberry-peach mixture with lemon juice and 5 cups of water. Chill.

It is creamy and delicious with fresh ice and a spring of mint!

  3. 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!!!
