I have a confession.
I may be the slightest bit obsessed with peaches.
At first I thought my newly found love was just because of all the perfect peaches available this time of year, but, then, when I automatically reached for peach tea over every other flavor, I knew that, maybe, that wasn’t it.
Let me explain.
A couple days ago, I received a whole bunch of tea samples for the awesome folks at Celestial Seasonings (seriously, they’re so nice).
There were tons of different teas to try, and I immediately began brainstorming up different ideas on how to use them in new and unique ways.
Smoothies, muffins, ice cream. I had tons of ideas, all of which could have used any one of the tea flavors. But you know which one I decided to try first? That’s right, peach blossom.
So, you see, I might have a teensy-tiny problem.
I think I can come to terms with it, though. I mean, there are worse obsessions than peaches. What if I was obsessed with mushrooms? Now, that would be weird.
Now that I think about it, it’s actually a good thing that I decided to use the flavor tea I did, because my peach blossom tea choice resulted in a really delicious Peach Ginger Sorbet.
It’s light, with a subtle peach flavor, and a hint of ginger. This is not a sorbet that’s going to smack you in the face, but one that has just a enough flavor to make you want more… and more… and more.
Yeah, it’s that good.
Ginger Peach Sorbet
(makes about 3 cups)
- 3 cups water
- 3 bags Celestial Seasonings Peach Blossom Green Tea (you could probably also use another brand of peach flavored tea)
- 1/4 cup sugar (or to taste)
- 1 1-inch cube fresh ginger root, sliced into small pieces
- 1 peach, fresh
Just a warning: This is not the last peach recipe you’ll be seeing. I’ve still got lots coming (pizza and ice cream to name a few). So, if you’re a peach lover like me, you’ll want to keep a look out.
And you know what else you should keep your eyes peeled for? A chance to win some tea! That’s right, there’s a giveaway coming soon. Stay posted!
