Fruit Frappe

I have a love hate relationship with canned peaches and it is all my mom’s fault. Sorry mom, but you spoiled me.

You see growing up my mom canned peaches. We would go to the orchard each year for peaches and she would spend days canning peaches so that we would have peaches through out the winter. I loved these canned peaches. They were so good. The trouble is that once you have home canned peaches, the store canned peaches will never be the same.

However, this recipe today is one way I will eat canned peaches. In fact, I love canned peaches served this way. This is a simple Fruit Frappe or Fruit Slushy

Fruit Frappe is really just a fancy name for a fruit slushy or iced drink, but doesn’t Fruit Frappe sound more gourmet and fancy. What ever you call this, it is really good.

We love these for breakfast, but they also work great for lunch or a snack.

My kids love these, and I think they make a perfect summertime treat.

Plan ahead on this one because you have to freeze the peaches.

  2. Do you think you could just use frozen peaches?

    • @flora, Yes and no, I think you could, but I think the peach juice in the canned peaches helps give this better flavor then just using frozen peaches like in a smoothie.

    Freezing the cans is really clever! I’ve never had real canned peaches – it sounds like I really missed out.

  6. yum! I can’t wait to try this! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I get what you mean…my girls never enjoyed canned peaches either, until my friend shared some of her mom’s home-canned ones. We’ve been canning them every year since and my girls have always happily helped with the work-because they enjoy them that much.

  8. Wow, this sounds great. Going to have to go buy some canned peaches. ๐Ÿ™‚ YUM.
