There were lots of peach orchards where I grew up in Arkansas. In fact, they still have a Peach Festival every summer to celebrate and I really miss those ripe, juicy peaches fresh off of the tree.
Last summer my Mom gave me a bunch of peaches that she grew on her peach trees and we made a ton of peach smoothies and shakes. My oldest son was in heaven, he loves peach everything.
Well it isn’t quite time for fresh peaches this year but I had a huge craving for one of those peach milkshakes. I bought some canned peaches, drained them and froze them. A peach milkshake is so good that I would put it in the comfort food category. I spice up my peach milkshakes with a little cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg just like a good southern peach pie.
- 1 cup vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup milk
- 2 peach halves, frozen (Use fresh or canned and freeze in a zip top freezer bag)
