Easy Cold Peach Soup Recipe

Chilled peach soup is the perfect indulgence for a hot summer day (or evening). Serve it as a cool treat by itself or as a memorable start or sweet ending to a summer meal - and the recipe is vegan as well as gluten-free!

Easy to make and no cooking necessary. Plus using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream makes it healthy and virtually fat-free.

Whether they come fresh from the tree or the market, be sure to use only the best, biggest, most perfectly ripe peaches you can find. Local peaches are the best, so you may have to wait for late summer to try this one. I guarantee it is worth the wait!

Method for Making Peach Soup

  1. Carefully peel and pit the peaches
  2. Take 5 peaches and cut into quarters or a little smaller
  3. Cut the 6th peach into thin slices and put in smaller bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator
  4. Put the quartered peaches, sugar, lemon juice, Greek yogurt, sherry, and orange juice concentrate into a blender or food processor.
  5. Process until creamy and smooth.
  6. Pour soup into a large bowl or container, cover, and refrigerate until VERY cold.

Helpful Hint

To peel peaches easily, cut them into halves dip in boiling water for 20 to 30 seconds or until skins loosen. Remove peach halves with slotted spoon and dip in ice water. The skins will slide right off!

To Serve the Chilled Peach Soup

As a first course: Ladle soup into individual soup bowls or other serving pieces (I sometimes like to use freezer/oven safe bowls and chill the bowls in the freezer for a bit first). Garnish each bowl with a few slices of the 6th peach and a sprig of mint.

As a dessert: Ladle soup into stemmed sherbet glasses or goblets instead of bowls. Garnish and serve.

May We Suggest . . .

Set your table in style and serve your chilled peach soup or dessert creation with panache.

Be creative.

Serve it in a classic ice cream sundae tulip glass, a champagne flute, mismatched antique bowls, pewter goblets, or martini glasses. You are not restricted to the usual soup bowls.

Have fun!

Did You Know?

Peaches are native to China and first spread to the rest of the world via trade along the Silk Road.

      This look like a great recipe and idea for those who can tolerate stone fruit. Might try it with berries as that should also work. Hugs

      I am bit surprised because this is for the first time I hear about peach soup :) I mean...I like this fruit very much, but I never tried to make a soup out of it. Although your recipe is very detailed I do have one small question before I start making this soup: what kind of unit is Lg (in the meaning of : 1Lg Lemon)? Would you be so kind and explain it to me? Thanks ;)

      I've never been a big fan of cold fruit or veg gazpacho style soups - UNTIL - five weeks ago I started eating a raw food diet and had to at least try the cold veg (or fruit) soup courses, and *surprise* I actually like them! So this refreshing cold peach soup recipe is now in my file to try when peach is on the daily menu - THANKS!
