If you’re unsure when peaches are in season in your area of the US, this ripening chart will help. Remember to use ripe peaches whenever possible. Trying to juice unripe peaches isn’t recommended.

Drinking freshly prepared juice is such a quick and healthy way to absorb extra nutrients and give your body a big vitamin boost. Here are more reasons why we love this juice:
Peaches are an often overlooked fruit. We’re here to promote all of the positive, peachy particulars. When ripe, this golden, slightly fuzzy fruit is fabulous!
You sure can! Because stone fruits don’t have a high amount of water content, they usually give a little less juice than other fruits. But, it’s still possible and we ap-peach-iate every single drop we can get! Although peaches are sometimes best blended into smoothies, they can also be particularly pleasant just juiced up.
Making fresh juice in your very own kitchen is a peach of cake! The key is to use the sweetest, freshest peaches that you can find. If you’re unlucky in the peach picking department, try using frozen peaches that are thawed overnight. Because frozen peaches are picked at the peak of ripeness, they tend to have a better flavor than slightly unripe peaches.
Besides being a heavenly, hydrating beverage, there are a couple of ways to use peach juice in other recipes. Consider adding a splash of sparkling water (peach or lemon flavored would be tasty!), club soda, or even a lemon-lime soda in place of the water for a special occasion spritzer. Serve in a fancy, fluted glass with peach slices on the side and a sprig of mint.
You can also swap out plant-milk for peach juice in a smoothie recipe (especially strawberry!) or even mix the vibrant juice with a bit of white balsamic vinegar and olive oil for a fantastic fruity dressing!
Homemade peach juice will stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days. Make sure to shake before drinking, since the juice might begin to separate a little. This is totally normal and a quick shake will bring it back together again.
You can also freeze the remaining juice by pouring it into an ice cube tray. Freeze overnight. You can then place the peach ice cubes into a freezer-safe bag or container for future use. Excellent for adding to seltzer water, fizzy drinks, iced teas, or lemonades. The frozen fruit juice cubes will last up to 6 months, if stored properly.
If you already have a juicer, there’s not much else that you need. Once you get the juice extracted (fast and fun!), just add in the sweetener, lemon juice, and fancy liquid of choice.

A fun way to keep your peach juice flavor fresh and appetizing is to mix it along with other fruits. We love these combinations. Just blend and enjoy!
Yes! Simply use a blender to blend the peaches together and pour through a fine mesh sieve, cheesecloth, or nut milk bag to obtain the juice. Then, add in the remaining ingredients. You may have a little less liquid compared to juicing, but you can use more peaches, if desired.
You can easily replace all of the added sweetener in the recipe by juicing one or two large sweet apple (sliced and/or peeled) along with the peaches. The best apples to use include Fuji, Gala, Ambrosia, or Juici. This method will give you more liquid, so you can reduce the amount of added water to the final juice. Just make sure the combined juices equal 12 ounces total before adding the lemon juice.
You probably could, but the resulting juice may not taste as fresh or have the same consistency. This juice recipe depends solely on the ripeness and sweetness of fresh peaches. If you’re not able to get fresh, ripe peaches where you live, you can buy frozen peaches and allow them to thaw overnight in the refrigerator. We find that these peaches work even better than fresh. If your peaches aren’t quite sweet enough, feel free to use extra sweetener. If you do use canned peaches, you may want to reduce or eliminate the added sweetener.
