210. Peach Ice Deluxe, True Essence

Sunny, hot days and a juicy, fresh peach are reasons to love summer! Then, there are all those lovely things you can make with peaches like peach pie, peach cobbler, peaches and cream...and peaches on top of all kinds of things. While fresh peaches invariably make for a delightful eating experience, canned peaches always seem to lack something. Still...if you have a bushel of peaches...something must be done with them and canning is usually the way to go.

After having canned a good supply of fresh peaches and thinking, "Now what?"...I was happy to find a wonderful and easy way to make use of them that brought out their true essence and flavor. Peach Ice Deluxe can bring that special summer flavor into a dark, winter day by using fresh, frozen  or canned peaches. It makes a refreshing after-meal treat or mid-day snack and is reminiscent of Italian ice or sorbet. The rum flavoring gives this peach ice that little bit extra that makes it deluxe.

This dish may be increased for more servings or even decreased to serve only one!

 Peach Ice Deluxe

2 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted  and sliced (canned peaches may be substituted)
1/2 T lemon juice
1/2 tsp rum flavoring (optional)
2 T Splenda (sugar may be substituted)
1/4 C Soy milk, vanilla flavored

Freeze sliced peaches in a single layer. Place frozen peaches and the remaining ingredients in a blender or Vita Mix. Process until smooth. Spoon into small cups and serve immediately or freeze until later. May be topped with additional fresh or frozen peach slices. Serves 2
