Foodie Friday – Peach Bellini

Alberta

Last summer we bought a huge flat of bruised peaches for a great price. I cut up and froze over 30 of them. So all winter I have been using peaches in a lot of baking and cooking.

I had a hankering for a peach Bellini the other day, so decided to “cook” one up.

I found this recipe on the Food Network and then changed it a bit to suit what I had on hand and for what I was looking for in my Bellini. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/peach-bellini-recipe.html

– 6 peaches, cut into quarters and pitted

-1/4 cup sugar (I used normal sugar)

-1/4 cup water

-1 Tbsp lemon juice

-Sugar-Free flavoured sparkling water

-White wine

 

Directions:

20160820_154715Place cut up peaches in the blender along with the water, sugar, and lemon juice.

Blend until pureed.

Place into fridge until ready to use.

Pour out into 6 glasses. Add in equal parts of flavoured sparkling water and wine. Mix together.

 

I decided to use the bubbly water to add in another flavour and to make it a bit lighter. I had lime bubbly water on-hand so used that the first time. I also have used strawberry or peach flavoured bubbly water.

I added the wine for the alcohol. I didn’t want to use Prosecco because that makes for a more expensive drink.

It is such a fun drink and pretty healthy too if there is basically an entire peach in each drink!!
