Roasted Peach Iced Tea

Kelsey Banfield of The Naptime Chef knows all about straightforward, non-fussy recipes. After all, her blog is geared toward that precious time when the kids are down for a nap and you’ve got a moment alone in the kitchen: “I am a mom and a foodie. And I don’t think these two things should ever be mutually exclusive,” she says. We love Banfield’s Naptime Menus—pre-planned, themed meal ideas for the busy parent. And in the dog days of summer, of course we’re always sold on an iced tea recipe that’s a little bit different but still simple and delicious. This version uses roasted peaches for flavor and not too much sugar. Perfect for the busy mom, sure, but anyone will enjoy a cold glass of this on an otherwise hectic afternoon.

4 medium peaches, pitted and sliced in half

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

4 cups freshly brewed tea, cooled slightly


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2. Place the peaches skin side down in a baking dish and sprinkle the tops with the sugar. Roast the peaches for about 25 minutes or until the tops of the peaches are juicy and the skins able to be easily pinched off.

3. Remove the peach skins and drop the roasted peaches into a blender. Pour in enough tea to cover the peaches in the blender. Purée the peaches completely, until the liquid is a little foamy and frothy.

4. Pour the mixture into a pitcher and stir in the rest of the tea. Chill. Before drinking, pour the tea through a strainer to get rid of the pulp. However, if you want the pulp in, simply stir the tea well before serving.
