It’s common to use peach puree for bellini, but you can also freeze fruit puree into ice cubes and add the cubes to water (plain or sparkling) or your favorite tea for a refreshing pop of flavor. These frozen fruit puree ice cubes are a summertime favorite!

I love to make these peach ice cubes during the warm summer months.  They add such an incredible juicy sweet flavor (without any added sugar) to a glass of water or iced tea.  And I do love my iced green tea!!!  

PEACH PUREE RECIPE

This pureed fruit recipe uses fresh peaches (yellow or white), but frozen peaches work just as well.  My personal favorite is white peach puree, because white peaches tend to be a little more sweet, mellow and less acidic than yellow peaches.

  • Ripe fresh peaches
  • Fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • Water 
  • Fesh ginger juice (optional)
  • Clover honey (optional – depending on desired sweetness)

HOW TO MAKE PEACH PUREE

Making fruit puree takes about 5-7 minutes depending on your blender/food processor speed, plus 3-4 hours (or overnight) to freeze the ice cubes.

  1. Add the peaches, lemon juice, ginger juice and honey to a blender or food processor.  
  2. As the blender is running, slowly add just a few drops of water if needed help the peaches blend.
  3. For the fresh ginger juice, grate fresh peeled ginger, then squeeze the juice from it using your fingers.
  4. Press the mixture through a sieve and discard large pieces (if you don’t mind having a few pieces of peach in your ice cubes, you can skip this step).
  5. Spoon the peach puree into ice cube trays.
