Ultimate Peach Roundup: 25 Recipes You Have to Try This Season

August is peak peach season! This is the perfect time to enjoy the sweet, slightly tart, juicy flavors of peaches. While they taste amazing on their own, especially the Oregold peaches from Harry & David, the fruit is also incredibly versatile and delicious as part of a drink or meal. We’ve rounded up our favorite peach recipes so that you can try them, too.

1. Grilled Peaches and Cream

There is no more classic flavor combo than peaches and cream, and there isn’t a better way to use for your soon-to-be-overripe peaches than grilling them. This recipe calls for caramel sauce (any will do, but we like Harry and David’s Classic Caramel), vanilla ice cream, and walnuts if you want. It’s the perfect dessert for any summer night.


2. Cadillac Peach Margarita

Top shelf liquor with high-quality peaches make this margarita a league above the rest. Make sure that you get your peaches from Harry and David to guarantee freshness and make this drink look and taste amazing.


3. Peach Caprese Salad

Replace the tomatoes in your caprese with sweet peaches for a vibrant new flavor. This recipe is hearty and filling, and will be sure to wow your tastebuds.


4. Strawberry, White Peach, and Lime Margarita Popsicles

Everyone loves a delicious margarita in the summer heat. A margarita in popsicle form? That’s a dream come true. The colors layer beautifully, and you’ll love enjoying a childhood treat with an adult twist.


5. Sweet Glazed Salmon with Jalepeño Peach Salsa

Grilled fish and fresh fruit pair well at any time of year, but enhancing the flavors of summer will make any meal feel lighter and fresher. This recipe pairs delicate salmon flavor with bright peach salsa, and the jalepeño adds a subtle heat to warm your taste buds.


6. Passion Peach Punch

This recipe is a great alternative for when you want something different than a margarita or sangria. A fun punch is always a good way to go for a party; this one looks elegant, and uses frozen fruit juice cubes instead of ice cubes to keep the drink cold without watering it down.


7. Sweet Peaches and Cream Trifle

Stack your peaches and cream and make delicious desserts that will wow any party guest. Since you’re using canned peaches, there’s no extra hassle, and this trifle will look (and taste) like it took twice the time!


8. Peach Pie Sangria

Let’s be honest, sangria is perfect at any time of year: you make it in big batches, it can be red or white, and it’s delicious. This peach sangria is no different, and will quickly become one of your favorite go-to party drinks.


9. Sweet Peach Guacamole

Guacamole is one of my favorite foods; we’re always looking for new ways to spice it up. For an unexpected twist, throw some diced peaches into your next batch of guacamole. They’ll add some pockets of sweetness and texture, and keep your guests wondering how you did it!


10. Spiked Peach Lemonade

This is another combination of peaches and lemonade flavor for the summer: this cocktail is bourbon-free, and can also be made into a slush for those incredibly hot, end-of-summer days.


11. Three-Ingredient Peach Creamsicles

This recipe is everything you could hope for: simple, delicious, and figure-friendly. It calls for Greek yogurt and fresh fruit, meaning that you can eat these treats all summer and not worry about losing that bikini body. It’s easy and fun, making it perfect for kids, too!


12. Caramelized Peaches with Ice Cream

This twist on peaches and cream uses brown sugar and and butter to create a crust around the peaches and allow them to crisp up. That creates a delicious contrast to the cold, soft ice cream. This might become your new favorite renditions of peaches and cream.


13. Champagne Peach Sorbet

Wow your family or your guests with this elegant champagne sorbet. It doesn’t require an ice cream maker, and the sorbet is served in champagne glasses for an extra dazzle. This dish is so simple, and so impressive.


14. Peachy Love Sparkler

A versatile drink recipe is a must-have for families. This one fits the bill: it can be made with either champagne or sparkling cider. That way, the kids can enjoy it with lunch or dinner, while mom and dad enjoy a more romantic version.



15. Georgia Peach Cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Simple and beautiful, this cupcake is made to showcase the delicious and delicate flavor of the peach. You can use canned peaches (with no added sugar) or fresh peaches, but no matter what you decide, the peachiness will come through.


16. The Georgia Peach Cocktail

Enjoy the decadence of marshmallows with the full flavor of roasted peaches. The two come together in this fun, indulgent cocktail. It’s garnished with marshmallows for an extra-sweet bonus treat.


17. Spiked Peach Cupcakes

What’s even more amazing than plain cupcakes? Spiked cupcakes, of course! These are spiked with peach-infused vodka and use peach juice and fresh peaches, as well. Guests will love the peach flavor, and you’ll have a hard time eating just one!


18. Peach and Raspberry Punch

This drink is so easy, you’ll feel less like you’re mixing and more as if you’re stacking a few ingredients! It’s the perfect batch drink for a party because even if it runs out, it’s incredibly easy to replenish.


19. Peach Serrano Pepper Chutney

The best thing about peaches is that you can add sweet or savory flavors without compromising the integrity of the peach itself. This chutney includes serrano peppers and apple cider vinegar, and still maintains the sweetness of the peaches.


​20. Italian Peach Soda

This drink looks as amazing as it tastes. It’s perfect to serve at any party, and will go well with any light summer menu. The peach syrup and cream make this soda taste light and as delicious as if it came straight from Italy.


21. Baked Peaches Stuffed with Oat Streusel

Baked fruit is a great vehicle for flavor. This baked peach recipe can be eaten for a power breakfast, a super-filling snack, or a decadent dessert. Take your pick!


22. Kentucky Peach Cocktail

Everyone loves the breezy flavor of lemonade on a summer day. Spike yours up with some bourbon and peach vodka for a refreshing summer cocktail. Trust us--you’ll love this drink even if you’re not in Kentucky!


23. Grilled S'Meaches

Add some grilled peaches to your s'mores the next time you gather around a fire. The peaches will get juicy and sweet, and complement the marshmallows beautifully. Chocolate and fruit are always a match made in heaven!


24. Vodka Peach Bellini

Rather than using the traditional peach purée/wine combination, kick your bellini up a notch by using peach-infused vodka. The sweet peach flavor is just as strong, and it will be sure to wake you up during Sunday brunch! 



25. Homemade Spiked Peach Ice Cream

The best thing about homemade ice cream is that you can control every single ingredient. This ice cream uses sugar, cream, milk, peaches, and vodka--that’s it! It’s a difference you will feel and your guests will be able to taste.
