Grilled Peach Lemonade

So we are headed to the shore for our annual vacation later this week, and the boys have been at Camp Grammy and Grampy since Thursday {can we talk for a moment about how awesome it is to have parents who beg to take all three of your kids for a week at a time??}, which means that I’ve been running a ton of errands getting everything we need for our trip. Of course, being the easily distracted person that I am, when I was at Sam’s Club a couple of days ago and spotted the twin packs of Simply Lemonade® and a whole big display of absolutely beautiful peaches, I didn’t walk right past as I probably should have, thinking “I have no time to be creating recipes right now, I need to pack for our trip!”

Instead, I thought, “Ooooh! Grilled Peach Lemonade! Done.”

Yeah, I may have just a few slight problems with the concept of focus.

But really, who can blame me? I mean, look at this. Doesn’t it just scream summer deliciousness??

If you’re not familiar with the concept of grilling fruit, you need to get familiar with it, stat. Grilling fruits, especially my favorites, pineapple or stone fruits like peaches, plums and apricots, adds a slight smoky taste and helps bring out the natural sweetness of the fruit.

And when you combine that flavor with the tart deliciousness of lemonade, well… you’ve got yourself a little pitcher of heaven right there.

To grill your peaches, just slice them in half and then remove the pit. Brush on a light, neutral-tasting oil {I used canola oil} and place them face-down on your grill for a few minutes. You just want them to soften slightly, you don’t want them to get mushy, so 3-4 minutes should do it.

Take them off the grill and let them cool slightly, and then toss them into a blender or food processor. Strain out all the pulp and marvel at your gorgeous peach nectar. Now, just mix that nectar into 1.75 liters of lemonade {about 6 cups}.

You could make your own, I suppose, but why bother? Cutting and squeezing all those lemons is a pain in the neck, so I usually get a bottle of Simply Lemonade. It’s made from all-natural ingredients, and tastes absolutely wonderful, so why on earth would I go to all the trouble of making it myself?

Like I said, I found it in the refrigerated section at Sam’s Club, and it’s on special all summer long: $3.58 for a two-pack of 1.75L bottles. You couldn’t even make your own lemonade for that price. It comes in regular lemonade flavor or Raspberry Lemonade. Next time, I’m going to try this recipe with the raspberry flavor. I am guessing it will be equally as delicious!!

Anyways, mix it all together, pour it over ice, garnish with a few more peach slices if that floats your boat and enjoy your grilled peach lemonade, preferably while sitting outside in the sunshine.

    Sounds amazing! Do you leave the skin on the peaches after grilling? Blend them up – skin and all?
