Tips on Making Peach Sauce

This peach sauce is one of the best recipes for frozen peaches, canned peaches, and fresh ones. We’re adding a dash of almond extract for added depth of flavor. That and more tips on how to make the perfect peach sauce for ice cream and other desserts:

  • Be sure to pick peaches that have a sweet distinct smell and a yellow gold color. This means they are fresh and ready to eat. Ripe peaches should be soft enough to push back a little when pressed. Overripe peaches turn mushy, but they’re good to use if you want to spread them like butter.
  • Peel your fresh peaches easily by poaching them first in boiling water for 30 to 45 seconds. Then, place them in an ice bath to cool down for easy handling. The skin should easily peel off after this.
  • You might not need to add sugar if your peaches are already super sweet. It’s best to taste the peach sauce and add sugar just as needed.
  • You can make this peach recipe with half peaches and half pear for some flavor variety. You can also add berries for a pop of color.
  • For more flavor, try adding ground cinnamon and lemon zest. It’ll taste delicious and extra warm!
  • Keep your peach topping in the fridge in a sealed airtight container, ready to use any time.

Serve it on top of our keto cloud bread with whipped cream, or as a filling for crepes and an addition to your charcuterie board. Now, let’s get right on to making it.

Commonly Asked Questions

Can I eat peach skin?

Like a lot of fruits, peach skin is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients. It turns soft when cooked, so it’s edible. However, chances are the peach skin has a lot of pesticides that are not good for consumption. If you want to consume peach skin with your peach sauce, make sure to use organic peaches.

Can I use underripe peaches to make peach sauce?

Yes. Slightly underripe peaches are firm and good for cooking. You just need to sweeten them a bit more as their flavors are still not fully developed.



Tender peaches enveloped in a luscious sauce with the pure nutty aroma of almonds. This easy peasy sweet peach sauce is a great way to level up any breakfast food, ice cream, and other desserts.
