Just Peachy: Try These 20 Healthy Summer Peach Recipes

August is National Peach Month, dedicated to celebrating one of our favorite juicy summertime fruits! This week on the Vibrant Health blog, we’re dishing out its health benefits, how to incorporate peaches into your diet and healthy recipes to try this season. Now isn’t that just peachy? 

Why We Love Peaches   

We’ve got a lot of love for peaches — and for good reason. This juicy seasonal stone fruit is packed with vitamins and nutrients. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, one medium-sized peach contains 10 mg of immune-boosting vitamin C; plus they’re also rich in vitamin A and fiber.   

Peaches make for a wonderful addition (or substitute) for bananas in your green smoothies — especially if you’re following a low potassium diet. In fact, they have fewer carbohydrates and calories too. Win, win!  

How to Add Peaches into Your Diet 

Now that you know why peaches are good for you, here are some ways to incorporate them into your diet: 

  • Add fresh or frozen peaches to your smoothies and smoothie bowls  
  • Mix chopped peaches into your oatmeal or cereal 
  • Sprinkle on top of yogurt  
  • Try making homemade peach preserves to extend their shelf life!  
  • Mix in with homemade muffins or other baked goods 
  • Serve as a healthy topping with your ice cream   
  • Make a refreshing peach salsa 
  • Try grilling them for a unique BBQ side 
  • Pick them yourself for a fun family adventure 
  • Enjoy them savory — on top of salads, cheese or even pizza!
