How is your summer going? Mine is just peachy! 🙂 (Pun intended.)

A month-long vacation in Mongolia last month, having my mom visit us here for the first time, a fun trip to Theodore Roosevelt National Park a week ago, a quick road-trip to Minneapolis filled with lots of shopping and bakery-hopping with my mom, and busy days working with fresh cherries, apricots and peaches.

Yet I still need to plan my next mini road-trip to MT, WY, and SD for next week, then another short trip to Denver! Yep, pretty busy summer with lots of short trips, but I’m loving it!

Despite my busy summer schedule, I do find some time to spend in my kitchen to create new recipes. I just love playing with food, especially fresh fruits.

I’m super excited to share this A-M-A-Z-I-N-G peach iced tea with you. Couple months ago, friend of mine surprised me with tasty peach iced tea. Ever since then, I’ve wanted to recreate equally tasty refreshing peach drink. Words can’t describe how excited I was when I finally nailed the recipe. After all, I have a couple boxes of peaches at my disposal.

Not too sweet, this iced tea is light and peachy! The secret ingredient in this drink is pure vanilla extract. It gives a hint of warm floral flavor that compliments peaches!

To make this iced tea, we’ll first make a peach tea concentrate. You can prepare it up to 1 day in advance. Basically, steep the tea, boil it with fresh peaches, stir in honey for a little sweetness, and blend away. Then add some water and sliced peaches before serving. Easy-peasy, yeah?
