Simple summer sippin’: coconut peach ice

The best parts of summer are the simple things.

Hot air blasting in your face after walking out of an air-conditioned building.

Fresh, ripe and juicy produce dripping down your chin.

Sunlight that lasts until 9pm.

A cold beer.

Lazy beach days with your toes in the sand and a book an electronic reader in hand.

Tan lines.

I’ll be working on those last two this weekend at my soon to be sister in law’s bachelorette party at the beach.

If I had a blender with me, this would be in my hand while doing so.

Somehow I think we’ll manage on the drink front though.

Peaches, coconut milk, mint, ice. Blend and drink up.

Preferably on your porch.

    So simple! I love it. Looks delicious.

    I could use one of those right now.

    Now these are some interesting flavors. I was saying in another blog, that peaches aren’t usually my favorite because I’m not big into the “mushier” type of fruits. But I’m always trying to find new ways to enjoy fruit when they’re at their most ripe and amazing! I think this would be a good balance!

    I love how simple this recipe is. Sounds like my kind of treat. I think I need to own stock in coconut milk these days, I go through so much of it!

    I made a drink very close to your recipe, it’s so simple, so tasty and all so refreshing! Have a wonderful weekend!!

    we both have coconut beverages on the brain today! Except I don’t have all my usual props down here. I want your glass jar :)

    I think you should bring a blender with you. Side note, it’s only 10 am, do you think that’s too early for an ice cold beer? Cuz that’s what I want now after reading this. And a beach. And tan lines. Why am in the office?

    This made me want to say “sipping on gin and juice” for some reason. Maybe it was b/c you said sippin in the title. B/c I’m sure there’s no gin in there.

    but touche. Looks fabulously refreshing anyway!

    I need to go back to bed. In my reader I scrolled through looking for a pie. I swear I saw peach ‘pie’ not ice. Pie on the brain? :) But really I bet this tastes fantastic and would absolutely be perfect while relaxing.
