11 Peach Recipes To Try Before Summer Ends

11 Peach Recipes to Try Before Summer Ends

Summer is almost at an end. I know, it's sad, right? The only good part about that statement is that peaches are in season! Grab as many as you can find at the farmers market — you can even freeze them to have this delicious delectable fruit all winter long. If you're not the fruit-freezing type, we have 10 ways for you to soak up the joy of peaches right now. There are so many dishes to make with peaches: salads, pizzas, sangria, crisps... that's why we made them the theme of this week's SWAT (Sharing With A Theme). Celebrate the end of summer with peaches. 

Lavender Peach Popsicles

Made with protein-packed Greek yogurt, sweet-tart peaches, and floral lavender, these lavender peach popsicles are more like lavender peaches and Creamsicles. Does anyone else think of that 112 song any time they hear that phrase? Know what I mean? "Peaches and cream"? For the Lavender Peach Popsicles recipe, click here.   

Peach Blueberry Crisp for Two

The contrast between the sweet and luscious filling and the crunchy topping is perfect. There is almost no added sugar to this crisp: The natural sugars of the fruit are just enough. But I did add a smidgen of honey to the nut topping to give it that bit of sweetness. For the Peach Blueberry Crisp for Two recipe, click here.

Rustic Peach Galette

Galettes, a member of the tart family, generally consist of a single layer of pie crust with a layer of fruit — often one variety — arranged in the middle. Instead of the straight, square sides of a tart, the galette's edges are folded over, creating an open middle to display the fruit. With this simple pie, you have a delicious summer dessert with the aroma of cinnamon wrapped around juicy sweet peaches. For the Rustic Peach Galette recipe, click here.

Kale Salad with Peaches and Coconut

Kale has a very strong flavor — at times, it's more bitter than tasty.ce On the other hand, peaches are perfectly sweet and juicy. When they come together, it's taste perfection.  Peaches give sweetness to the kale, creating a delicious salad.

Peach Chamomile Panna Cotta

This is an easy and beautiful dessert: just pour and set, if you'd like, but you can also get all fancy with layers. For the Peach Chamomile Panna Cotta recipe, click here. 

Bourbon Poached Peach Sorbet

This sorbet is super easy to whip together (who loves ya, no-churn), yet elegant enough for a party, and it is my new favorite snack. Who doesn't want to snack in fancy pants style? The sorbet is silky, light, and misleadingly rich in texture.  Poaching the peaches in bourbon adds a depth of mellow, boozy, bodacious flavor to the succulently sweet fruit.

Peach Mango Pie

Although this dough requires a little more effort than the traditional pastry, it's really worth it, because the flaky texture is amazing! Fill the crust with mangoes and peaches for a delicious go-to snack. For the Peach Mango Pie recipe, click here.

Whole Foods Feasting: Peachy Guacamole

In this guacamole, peaches play role similar to tomatoes — a little sweet and a little tart, with a surprisingly similar texture. Give it a try — I think you'll like it. For the Whole Foods Feasting: Peachy Guacamole recipe, click here.

White Wine Peach Sangria

For your signature end-of-summer drink, try making white wine sangria — it is a great way to utilize peaches and a stellar excuse to have wine. For the White Wine Peach Sangria recipe, click here.

Southern Peach Raspberry Cobbler for Two

Bourbon Peach Cobbler

The Daily Meal's Assistant Editor Abbey Crain made a delicious peach cobbler for this week's SWAT. Peach cobbler is a pretty simple dessert to whip up for a crowd. But add a few "extras" like bourbon and mascarpone cheese and you'll really impress your crowd. For the Bourbon Peach Cobbler recipe, click here.
