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
Place 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!!
