For the best flavor, use ripe peaches that give just a little to the touch and smell like a peach. (So not rock hard peaches. Let them sit at room temperature for a few days until they hit that point if they are hard.)

  1. Wash and dry the peaches.
  2. Cut in half and remove the pit. Cut into slices.
  3. Place into a gallon size zip top freezer bag and spread and move so they’re all in one layer. Remove as much air as possible and seal.
  4. Freeze for 6-12 months. Use frozen in smoothies, oatmeal, muffins, or crisps.


If adding to a muffin, cut them up (while still frozen) with kitchen shears to make smaller pieces.

Try adding frozen peaches to my Peach Banana Smoothie, Peach Puree, Oatmeal with Fruit, Peach Muffins, and Easy Peach Crisp.

You don’t have to peel the peaches though you could if you want to.

Increase or decrease the amount of peaches as desired. You can also just freeze a few leftover slices here or there to preserve leftovers from kids meals.
