Looking for a naturally sweet but cool treat to help you fend off the hot weather? Skip those bottled lemonades and forget those powdered mixes and all that added sugar. Instead, make a pitcher of gourmet, easy-to-make peach lemonade—a great way to cool off in the August heat. Here’s the blender recipe:

Yield: 1 pitcher


6 cups spring water, chilled

3 fresh peaches, pitted, quartered

½ cup lemon juice

Stevia, to taste

Add fruit and liquid ingredients to blender and mix starting on the lowest-variable setting. Increase blender speed quickly to 10, and then to high until smooth. Sweeten to taste. Serve over crushed ice, or chill before serving. Shake or stir vigorously before pouring.

Editor’s note:
