Chilled White Peach Soup

Chilled White Peach Soup

It’s hard to believe that on Monday, summer would be over and fall begins. It seems like just yesterday I was enjoying a nice white peach. Oh wait, it was yesterday. There’s still time to get in on some late season summer produce. Hurry!

Chilled White Peach Soup
Serves 2

1 large white peach, plus an additional peach for garnish (if you want to be all fancy)
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons apple juice
Agave nectar to taste
Mint to garnish

Peel, pit and chop the peach. In a blender, combine the peach, orange juice, apple juice and agave nectar if necessary to sweeten to taste and blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and chill for about an hour.

Serve with a mint garnish and a few peach slices on top.

    Such a great idea Chow! I will try this next time I get a good batch of peaches. It is just what I had imagined when I asked for a soup or salad and hinted for a dessert. Lovely :)

    This looks wonderful! It looks like a great way to keep those nice summer flavors going a little longer.

    Absolutely beautiful! I was debating at Trader Joe’s yesterday whether to buy white peaches or nectarines. I went with the nectarines, but wish I would have bought the white peaches!
