Market Basket: End-of-Summer Peach Soup

This Saturday
is week two of the Harvard Farmers’ Market, and I am certain there is no better way to usher out summer than with a recipe featuring sweet, juicy peaches. While fall may be beckoning with its brisk mornings, the afternoon heat is still calling for simple, no-cook food. This chilled peach soup is not only refreshing, but better yet, it can be whipped together in 10 minutes with NO cooking time. Which gives me just enough time to enjoy sunset on the porch.

Previous Harvard Farmers’ Market recipes can be found here or via the link on the right nav. If you are in the Boston-area, stop by the Harvard Farmers Market this Saturday, for peaches and plenty other delicious produce, produce, breads, cheese, meats and handmade goodies.

End-of-Summer Peach Soup

6 large peaches, peeled and pitted
1/2 c fat-free plain yogurt
1 T honey, plus more for garnish
juice and zest of 1 lemon

In a blender, combine all ingredients, and blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Pour soup into bowls and garnish with a drizzle of honey.

Peaches one of my all time fav! I have never had any peach soup before...the receipe doesn't look complicated. I think i will try this one weekend. :)
Have a lovely merry happy day and love to yoU!

That does look tasty! I was so tempted to make this after you suggested it, but that would have involved a run to the grocery store... Instead I made sticky rice, sweetened with a bit of sugar and some coconut milk, then made a ginger peach sauce to go with it. I was inspired by the Thai sticky rice & mango. I'm still planning on making this too! Thanks for your response!

That looks so amazing! love it. I get my CSA over at Harvest Co-op and sometimes swing by the Davis Sq. farmers market but that is so great that Harvard has its own!
