Peach pie, peach cobbler, peach crisp - sometimes it's nice to enjoy peaches without baking them! This recipe lets you do just that. It's a fluffy, airy mousse meant to be enjoyed cold, straight from the fridge.
4 very ripe peaches, peeled, flesh chopped
1 ½ cups sugar
2 cups whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon grated orange or lemon zest
4 fresh mint leaves, for garnish
In a large bowl, toss peaches and sugar together. Refrigerate 1 hour. Mash peaches with a fork or masher and reserve juices.
In a medium bowl, combine whipping cream, vanilla, zest, and reserved juice. Whip until thick and smooth. Gently fold in mashed peaches and chill until serving. Garnish with mint.
