This fresh peach lemonade is so refreshing. And I love that it’s honey sweetened! Not only do I somehow feel better about drinking it, but it gives it a nice, subtle honey flavor. But it doesn’t distract from the peaches!
When Amy posted this fresh peach lemonade last month, I went out and got peaches. The peaches had an accident. It’s really humid in here and that’s all I’ll say about that.
I didn’t press the mixture through a sieve like the original recipe said, just out of laziness, but I’m happy I didn’t! I liked the little bit of pulp. Amy’s lemonade was a beautiful peach color but mine was yellow. Maybe I wasn’t supposed to peel the peaches. Or maybe it’s the honey. I don’t know. It’s still delicious. :)
Have a great weekend everyone! And by the way… summer has finally arrived in Germany. Last week we were wearing jackets and sweaters and the last few days it’s been 90 F. Not cool. I want the fall weather back!
Honey Sweetened Fresh Peach Lemonade
- Prep Time:
- Cook Time:
- Ready in:
- Yield: 8 2/3 cup glasses
- 4 cups (950 ml) water
- 2 cups (3 - 4 peaches) coarsely chopped peeled peaches
- 1/2 cup (160 grams) honey
- 1 cup (236ml) fresh lemon juice (from about 6 lemons)
- 4 cups ice
- 1 peach for garnish, optional
- In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, combine the water, peaches and honey.
- Bring it to a boil and then simmer for three minutes. Let cool and blend in a food processor or a blender (I used the food processor because it's easier to clean) until well combined.
- Taste and add more sweetener if needed. Cool in the fridge for three hours and then add the lemon juice and stir. Mix before serving as the pulp will settle. Add ice if desired.

I’m happy you liked it! I think peach or nectarine would be amazing. I personally don’t like mango but it’s the same texturally so maybe it’d also work?
So gonna try this at my birthday picnic next weekend! What kind of leaves did you use as finishing touch?
I used basil but I think mint would be nicer. I just didn’t have any handy. I hope you’ll enjoy the lemonade and happy birthday! :)
swati – I hope you enjoy it and I hope that you're not suffering too much with the heat. :)
wow, the lemonade looks amazing…. its always hot here in India, hence its always a great time for lemonades. I'll surely try this one out.
Lindsay – Thank you! :)
Gorgeous Erin. Peachy and gorgeous.
Heidi – 80 pounds?! Oh my gosh. That sounds heavenly and kind of cruel. I'm excited to see what you make with them!
So pretty! I can't wait for peaches this year! This looks delicious, I'll try to remember it when I get peaches(sadly, I usually get 80 lbs all at once and that's it – I think I need to write a list of things to try while I do have them!)
The Great Houndini – I hope you do try it. :)
Natasha – Thanks! You enjoy your cooler weather. :)

I love how you use honey to sweeten the lemonade!
i think it looks absolutely gorgeous! and no, i didn't peel the peaches – was i supposed to? i'm not always so good at reading all the directions. =) for realski, though, your pics are amazing!
I have been making summer drinks like this while on vacation and I love them. These two flavors I have never had together so you gave me something to think about :-). When I get back to my kitchen, tomorrow :-) I will be posting some of the drinks that we have been enjoying as well.
Lovely colors!! By the way, I think if I were to make this I would just probably through everything in the food procesessor without boiling it first :-) Will see how it goes when I make it!! So many recipes to catch up on….
Oh my goodness, this looks SO delicious! I need to try peach lemonade! :)
OOOH lovely summer drinks! I'm always for trying new ones! Naturally favored ones for sure! Thanks!
This drink sounds so lovely. It was pretty hot here this week and I could really have gone for a glass of cold peach lemonade. Love that it uses honey too!
