Peachy Keen

It’s National Peach Ice Cream Day today and although I don’t have any peach ice cream recipes, I have 10 ideas that play upon peaches + ice cream.

Mango, apricots, oranges, and bananas are involved but use peaches or nectarines if you wish. Everything is largely interchangeable.

Caramel Peanut Butter & Apricot Jelly Bars (GF with vegan adaptation) – of all the desserts I’ve ever made, Scott still talks about these

The pictures are a bit underwhelming; but these are stellar little bars and very easy

Do you like peaches, apricots, nectarines?

I love them all and am realizing I need to make more things using them. Really, summer + fruit go hand in hand.

From watermelon and berries to white nectarines and juicy peaches, I love this time of year.

If you have any good recipes using any seasonal or summer fruits, feel free to link them up.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

  1. You know, I love fresh peaches, but rarely cook or bake with them. These ideas are fantastic places to start, and now is definitely the time to experiment, while they’re so plentiful!

  2. Hi Averie! Oh, peaches and apricots are my favorite fruits, and when it’s not available fresh, I eat it dry. Love those dries apricots from Trader Joe’s, it is my snack and dessert too. We were driving from NYC another day, and stopped at TJ in Nashville, TN where I got a few months supply of those delicious apricots… :)

  3. i NEED those baked coconut and orange donuts in my life! what an awesome combo!

  4. As usual, all those recipes look absolutely delicious! I like the look of the pina colada and white chocolate cake cookies. Honestly, if I could eat one thing every day for the rest of my life (besides granola) it would be white chocolate. Inside of a cookie…YUM!

    I like peaches if they are hot, like in a cobbler or as a sauce to pour over ice cream. Plain they are just sort of “eh” for me. My youngest son loves them, though and my hubby is allergic!

    Great photos, Averie! :-)

  5. Peaches n cream smoothie – sign me up! Peach ice cream day is just more proof that really is a day for every food/dish/dessert in America. Crazy folks out there! ;)

    I’m suuuuper behind on your blog, hoping to catch back up on all these tasty recipes tonight (chocolate cake batter milkshake?!) PS, I received the healthy snacks package last week – thanks again for the awesome giveaway!

  6. I LOVE peaches! Soft, sweet, dripping peaches in the summer time are one of my favourites!

  7. I used to hate peaches but got item into them last year when they were in season and at the farmer’s market.
