Peach is coming back into fashion. And no, I don’t mean in a foodie sense; I mean the literal fondant-coloured hue gracing catwalks, makeup palettes and bouquets of flowers. Gone is the hideous memory of 80’s dresses with a lurid satiny sheen, and in its place, a soft palate of eye-pleasing shades that truly make the mouth water. Of course, this is what leads us back to the literal peach; sweet, soft and a childhood memory in the form of James and said Giant Fruit.
Peaches love a dash of cream, and as my mother tucked into a plate of said combination last night, I thought that I could go one better and turn it into a frothy, delicate milkshake. And today, the weather couldn’t have been better as I sliced up some tinned peaches, scooped up some ice cream and blended in some milk to create a truly refreshing treat when the sun has his hat on. Forget the 80’s, peach is back big style, and with one of these milkshakes, you will feel like the cat that got the cream.
