Ever had an older relative ask you, “What does a peach symbolize?” Don’t forget that at least some of the peach emoji use really does have to do with the juicy, delicious fruit itself. Here are seven peach recipes that will remind you about the benefits of this luscious fruit.

7 Exceptional Peach Recipes

This farmers market favorite reaches peak ripeness in July and August. Beneath their fuzzy skin, naturally sweet peaches have a soft, silky texture. While it’s hard to top the simple pleasure of biting into a perfectly ripe peach on a summer’s day, it’s also a wonderfully versatile recipe ingredient.

Look for fruit with a fragrant aroma and flesh that yields beneath your fingers when gently pressed. Avoid any with cuts, tan spots, or mushy spots. Rock-hard peaches or those with a green tinge are probably underripe.

Now that you know how to pick the best peaches, here are seven ways to put them to good use.

1. Creamy Peach and Avocado Overnight Oats

This simple and oh-so-delicious healthy peach recipe makes a perfect breakfast for days when you’re not sure you’ll have time to sit down and eat lunch. It’s loaded with energizing, healthy fats and fiber that will keep you feeling satiated.

This recipe combines creamy avocado with peach puree and fresh berries to create a flavor sensation. It also features moringa powder, a highly nutrient-dense supplement that contains all nine essential amino acids, as well as vitamins A and C, iron, and calcium. It’s pleasant, vegetal flavor marries beautifully with the other ingredients.

2. Simple Homemade Peach Jam

This simple method for preserving the orchard-fresh flavor of peaches comes from queen of the kitchen herself, Martha Stewart.

Requiring just four ingredients—peaches, sugar, lemon, and salt—this recipe takes about 20 minutes to prep and an additional hour or so to cook. The result is homemade peach jam so delicious, you’ll be tempted to eat it straight off the spoon.

3. Sweet Corn and Peach Tacos with Lentils and Basil Slaw

These healthy sweet corn and peach tacos capture some of the dreamiest flavors of summer in a single dish.

The succotash filling features plump peaches, sweet corn, french lentils, shallots, chili powder, and lime juice. Then, to take the flavors totally over the top, whip up the simple slaw with fresh basil and more lime juice. This recipe is a little bit tangy, a little bit sweet, and a little bit savory—in other words, perfect.

4. Thai Fusion Quinoa Salad with Peaches, Tomatoes, and Cilantro

The flavors of savory peach overlap with the tacos above, but here, they take on a Thai fusion twist. Grilled corn and peaches play with garden tomatoes, fresh basil, cilantro, avocado, crumbled feta cheese, toasted pepitas, and microgreens. Basically, this quinoa salad is summer in a bowl.

While the Thai-inspired vinaigrette does call for eight ingredients, the taste is well worth the time it takes to make it.

5. Old-Fashioned Peach Cobbler

This easy-to-make peach cobbler recipe was handed down to Lauren Allen, the recipe creator and photographer behind the blog Tastes Better From Scratch, by her mother. One of the best parts about this time-tested family favorite is that it only takes about five minutes to throw together. Oh, and the flavor is so good, you’ll be tempted to eat the whole pan!

Allen includes a great tip for the easiest way to peel peaches: gently lower two to three peaches at a time into a pot of boiling water. Let them remain submerged for about 30 seconds, then transfer them to an ice-cold bath. The shock of the ice water will prevent the peach flesh from cooking while loosening the peach skin so it can be easily removed. You won’t even need a knife!

6. Wholesome Raw Peach Cheesecake

This gorgeous, healthy raw peach cheesecake recipe has a subtle, refreshing flavor and the most stunning colors.

Be sure to check out the photos for decorating inspiration—recipe creator Audrey Snowe who runs the food blog Unconventional Baker topped hers with rose petals and heather flowers, which not only look beautiful but also accentuate the delicate flavor of the peach.

And despite how impressive it looks, Snowe promises it’s actually quite easy to make.

7. Rosemary and Peach Iced Tea

Making your own iced tea is hands-down the healthiest way to honor cravings for this sweet chilled beverage. Plus, it just tastes better!

To make this sophisticated peach iced tea recipe, you’ll first need to cook a mixture of peaches and sugar, which you’ll then strain directly into the tea. Rosemary adds a dash of refinement, and a bit of baking soda keeps the tannins in the tea from becoming too bitter. This smooth, sweet, herbaceous iced tea recipe will surely win you over.
