It’s HOT already where I live so baking a lot of desserts in my oven and heating my house up even more is really not too appealing to me these days. Which is why I love this chilled peach soup! It’s the perfect summertime dessert and, oh yeah, it’s AMAZING. The first spoonful of this immediately had me thinking of a peach cobbler like grandma makes except, well, with alcohol and obviously no crust! It’s creamy, cold and just really, really good. Top it with some homemade whipped cream and a couple sprigs of fresh mint and dessert is served!
- 1 c. Sparkling White Wine (I used a Spumante)
- 1 c. Peach Schnapps
- ½ c. Sugar
- 1 t. Fresh Mint Leaves, chopped
- ½ t. Ground Cinnamon
- ¼ t. Ground Nutmeg
- 2 c. Half and Half
- 10 Large, Fresh Peaches, sliced
- Place all ingredients except peaches in a large bowl and whisk until well blended and sugar is dissolved. Transfer to a high powered blender (I used a Vitamix) and add peaches (you might have to do this in two batches). Blend on high until smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer to an air-tight container and refrigerate until chilled.
