This is such a pretty lemonade! Great for brunches!

It’s plenty of sweet which is how I like my lemonades and sweet ice tea because it holds up to the ice without getting watered down. You can reduce the sugar if you must….but yeah… don’t. Get the full affect baby : )

  1. I just made this and it is amazing! So delicious! I made a double portion (@1 a.m.; don’t judge) and passed it around at work; everyone loved it!

    I loved your red velvet cupcakes, do you have a white cake recipe? Also do you gave any gluten free cupcake recipes? Thank you!

  3. Beautiful Testimony

    Monique,

    If I use frozen peaches will it be just as good and how many bags?

  4. I have never tried to make juice from scratch this tasted sooooo good OMG!!! The kids loved it thanks again!

  5. I made this for a 85th birthday party and it was a HIT!! I am making it for the 3rd time tonight. I am using white peaches from trader joe’s and each peach was a cup of peach diced. The first time I made it I used a mix of yellow and white peaches from the farmer’s market. Great recipe! I’ll try the strawberry lemonade next. Can I also make a blueberry lemonade with the strawberry recipe?

  6. I made this and turned out AMAZING .! love it going to try it with peaches and mangos. Also i bet u can make strawberry lemonade with this recipe.

  7. I truly love your full-of-flavor, oh-so-simple recipe and tutorial. Great pictures too! I do have a question/suggestion. Instead of discarding the solid (the peach mush), why not use it for muffins. I just could not part with it, so I made really nice peach and vanilla muffins. :-) Just thought I would share.

  8. This recipe turned out AMAZING!!! I did add a little more than the required ingredients, but it was only to my own preference. I also made the strawberry one, very delicious! Thank you for sharing!!!!!
