Fresh, juicy peaches are synonymous with the summer time, and with summer fast approaching I thought this would be the perfect time to post this recipe.
All you need are fresh peaches. The fuller and juicier, the better. That’s it. Seriously. With just one ingredient you can make this clean eat, vegan/vegetarian friendly, gluten free, dairy free, paleo sweet treat whose texture will rival your favorite ice cream!
Since I’m using fresh peaches, I’m going to cut them into chunks and pop them into the freezer until they’re frozen solid. You can do this in advance and keep a few baggies of perfectly ripe fresh to frozen peach chunks in your freezer to make this treat an absolute cinch with little to no wait or prep time.
Once the chunks are frozen, we’re going to dump them into a food processor (I have a mini food processor which is perfect for these types of recipes)
And then we blend it until it’s smooth. If you want, you can add a splash of water just to get the blades going or you can wait until the chunks are just slightly defrosted for a more concentrated flavor.
Once smooth, scoop it out into a dish and enjoy! If you want to firm it up a bit more feel free to set it into the freezer for a couple of minutes, but usually I enjoy it straight from the food processor. The texture is smooth and the mouthfeel is heavenly. It’s perfect for a hot and blistering summer’s day!
Peach Sorbet (One Ingredient!)
- 1 large peach (ripe)
- 2 tbsp water (optional)
- If using fresh peaches, cut the peach into chunks and freeze until solid (approx 4+ hrs)
- Add the frozen chunks of peaches (and water if using) to a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy (you'll have to stop the processor a few times and scrape the sides and rearrange the chunks to ensure an even blend).
- Scoop the sorbet into a dish and serve immediately or place it into the freezer for a few minutes to firm up a bit.
- Leftovers can be frozen and blended again when needed.
- Use a ripe and juicy peach for the best results.
- When blending, it does take time and you will have to stop and scrape the sides multiple times but it does work and come together in the end, I promise!)
- In lieu of using water, you can allow the peach chunks to defrost ever-so-slightly so that they blend easier
- If you prefer a bit more sweetness, add a teaspoon or two of honey to the peaches when blending.
