Warm summer days call for chilly fruity drinks. It’s just a classic staple that’s necessary. You can’t go all summer without drinking a nice, refreshing, and homemade lemonade, that’s like going all winter without drinking hot chocolate!
Now, lemonade on its own is amazing, no doubt. But adding that touch of fruit really adds makes the flavor go above and beyond! All you have to do is choose. For this recipe, I chose peach. Have you heard of my love for peaches? I buy in bulk and in the summer, there’s not a day when they’re not in my kitchen. I love making various desserts like this upside-down peach cake and easy peach mousse.
Along with being hydrating, sweet, and absolutely delicious, peaches also provide benefits. They are rich in vitamin C and beta carotene (eye support), as well as vitamin E for skin health and support.
