The best part? You only need peaches to make this summery puree! There’s no added sugar or any other unnecessary ingredients in the mix.
This could go either way. You can make this puree as some sweet and summery baby food for your little angel, or go to the complete opposite side of the spectrum and make some killer peach bellinis! No matter how you choose to enjoy this all-natural fruit puree, you’re going to love it.

When strolling the liquor aisles of a store, you’re bound to see all kinds of various mixers. One of those mixers that we often see is peach puree! Have you ever looked at that nutritional label? I’ll give you a hint – there’s a whole lot more than just peaches in there. In fact, most brands list sugar as the first ingredient… not peaches. I don’t know about you, but I’d prefer to taste the fruit itself, please!
Now that we’re finally headed towards the heat of summer, peaches are more readily available than ever before. There’s just nothing more summery than a ripe, juicy peach! But don’t worry, if you don’t have any fresh peaches on hand, I’ve also included some tips below of how to use frozen peaches for this easy recipe. You’re going to love this super summery fruit puree that tastes like pure sunshine!

Tips for the Best Peach Puree
Here are just a few quick tips and tricks to help you get the very BEST peach puree every time:
- You can use frozen peaches. While fresh peaches do tend to be a little juicy and more flavorful, you can certainly use frozen if that’s what you’ve got on hand. Just be sure to let them thaw completely before blending! If any parts of the peach slices are still frozen, they won’t blend well and you’ll end up with a chunky puree.
- Stop and scrape. You may or may not need to do this. As you’re blending your peach puree, check on the consistency. If you notice that a lot of the puree is chunky and on the sides of the processor/blender, stop and scrape the sides to fully incorporate everything into the mix.
- Don’t use the skins. Listen, I enjoy biting into a fuzzy peach from time to time… But that fuzzy skin has no place in this totally smooth puree. Be sure to peel your peaches prior to slicing and blending them.
How to Store Peach Puree
While you can enjoy your peach puree immediately, you can also store it for later use. Just transfer it into an airtight food storage container and keep it in the fridge for up to 4 days.
You can freeze the puree if you’d like! Place the puree into popsicle molds for the ultimate summertime snack. In the freezer, peach puree will stay fresh for up to 3 months. Best popsicles EVER! You can also pour it into an ice cube tray and let the frozen puree cubes keep all of your summer drinks fruity and cool.
