One of my favorite fall family traditions is to throw peach milkshake parties every year when the peaches are in season. We gather with friends and play games as we sip on our peach milkshakes. We usually do this until late into the night, with second and sometimes even third servings of this delicious treat! This milkshake is thick, creamy, with just the right amount of sweet and a tangy kick.
Sweet and sour is a great combination in foods, and this peach shake is no exception. Skinning the peaches is optional. I didn’t skin them the first time I made them and it was perfect, so I don't dare deviate from the recipe I've come to trust and love. The sugar is also optional if you prefer your shakes sweet. Peaches may be out of season for the year, but I have tried this with frozen peaches found at grocery stores and it was still very delicious. So don't let the lack of fresh peaches stop you from trying out the recipe now! You'll be so glad you did, and it's sure to be a big hit.
Peach Milkshake Recipe
3 peaches, pitted (skinned is optional)
½ cup buttermilk
½ tsp almond extract
4 very large scoops of vanilla ice cream (I use almost half of a half-gallon)
3 tbsp sugar, optional
Directions Add all ingredients to blender. Blend until smooth.
