But it was early spring, so I knew I had to wait. I waited patiently, as I do every summer, until peaches hit $.99 a pound at the grocery store. This is when I pounce. Peach sorbet, peach buckle, peach crisp, or just a plain old peach for a snack – these treats overwhelm our house for the month when the peach price dips to $.99 a pound. My family gets sick of peaches by the end of it all – everyone except me, that is. I could keep going well into the fall. Peach salsa, peach cake, peach smoothie, peach anything, no?
Aside from the peaches in my raspberry jam and some plain peaches for a snack, this was our first real peach dessert this summer. It’s not very sweet like a pre-packaged sorbet you would buy, but it’s very peachy, and the coconut milk gives it a great consistency. I love the idea of keeping the skin on the peaches (thanks to Lisa at 100 Days of Real Food). It’s much easier to skip the peeling step, and the darker color of the skin beautifully dots the final product.
Peach Coconut Sorbet Price Breakdown
This recipe costs $2.98 to make, or $.50 per ½ cup serving. Making sorbet with sugar instead of maple syrup would bring the price down a bit, but this real food version is still a great bargain.
