3-Ingredient Healthy Peach Slushie (low-carb, paleo, vegan, THM:E, real food)
Guess what’s almost as good as biting into a perfectly ripe and juicy peach?
Making a healthy slushie out peaches!!
My in-laws recently drove up from Texas for a visit, and they brought us a giant box (20 pounds!) of Southern peaches!
Of course, living in Minnesota, we don’t have access to fresh, Southern peaches — especially as fresh as these peaches were. They were perfectly ripe the moment my in-laws brought them into my house.
And you know what that means, right?
We had just a few days to eat them!
I think my father-in-law ate at least 2 peaches per day during his visit! And, my kiddos were in peach heaven.
We snacked on peaches. We made gluten-free peach crisp.
Then, with about 10 peaches getting a teensy bit too ripe, I cut up the remainder and frozen them. Believe me, not a single peach went to waste out of that entire 20-pound box!
How To Freeze Fresh Peaches
It’s really easy to freeze fresh peaches…
Simply cut them in half and remove the pit. Then slice or cut into chunks.
Lay parchment paper on a baking tray. The absolute best price on parchment paper online is Thrive Market.
Then, lay the peach slices or chunks on the parchment in a single layer.
Freeze until solid. Once frozen, transfer to a plastic freezer bag for storage.
Frozen peaches are so handy for adding to smoothies and slushies, especially during our long winters. A taste of summer is always welcome in January when it’s 30 below out!
Peaches are a lower carb fruit.
Depending on how much you eat, of course… 😉
This Healthy Peach Slushie recipe has 2-1/2 cups of sliced peaches, which is about 34 net grams of carbohydrates. It makes 3 to 4 servings, so you’ll get between 8 and 11 grams net carbs per serving.
That’s a pretty high carb count if you’re keto. It’s not out of the question, however, if you keep carbs low in the rest of the foods you eat that day.
A healthy peach slushie like this, with no added sugars or fats is a great E (Energizing) snack or dessert for Trim Healthy Mamas and totally fits into a low-carb lifestyle!
It amazes me that peaches can be so sweet yet so low in sugar!
How To Make A Healthy Peach Slushie With Just 3 Ingredients
Gotta good blender, some sparkling water, and frozen peaches?
Then, you have everything to make a 3-ingredient healthy peach slushie!
It’s as simple as:
- Pour sparkling water into your blender. For the best consistency, I use my Blendtec blender.
- Add frozen peaches and some lemon juice.
- Add a bit of stevia or a date, if you like extra sweetness. Be aware that the date will up the carb count considerably.
- Blend, blend, blend!
It literally took me less than 3 minutes to make this. Then, the peeps came inside and slurped them down in half that time.
How’s that for a yummy and easy 5-minute snack or dessert?! 😉
