This peach nectar recipe is an easy and delicious way to sip on summer’s best peaches. If it’s a special occasion, add some prosecco and make it a bellini!
Here it is: the essence of summer peaches in drinkable form! This peach nectar is so simple to make and so, so good. Basically we’re blending fresh peaches with a little bit of lemon and honey to balance their flavors, plus a hint of salt and vanilla to round things out. I was going to call this a peach agua fresca, but it’s thicker than that and almost creamy (in the most delicious way possible).
Here are a few things you can do with your fresh peach nectar: drink it straight up with breakfast instead of OJ, add it to your smoothie, stir some into your iced tea, make a peach nectar float with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (my favorite!), or pour in some prosecco and toast to brunch with a summery bellini (my plan for next summer when I won’t be pregnant!). You could even add a little tequila and lime for a peach margarita!
The one thing about this peach nectar is that it’s best the day you make it, so blend up a half-batch for yourself and go for the full batch when you have plenty of friends and family to share it with. It will keep for a day or so in a fridge, but nothing beats its taste and texture within a couple hours of blending.
If you’re looking for more ways to use the last of summer’s amazing peaches, here are a few ideas: start your day with a pitaya peach smoothie, end it with a pineapple peach margarita, up your lunch game with this summer kale salad with peaches, blueberries, and candied pecans, or throw some on the grill with pork chops.
Hope you enjoy the last and best month of summer with a big glass of this peach nectar in your hand!
