Brown Butter Peach Milkshakes

Brown Butter Peach Milkshakes from

Growing up, my siblings and I loved to eat fresh fruit. When I was a little girl, I would bring a mango, an apple or a peach to my Mom and ask her to cut it up for me to eat. Gone in 20 seconds is exactly what happened because there are six kids in my family!

Fast forward to today, we love fresh fruit. I love cooking and baking with it, Curtis is like me when I was a kid, he likes cutting it up and enjoying it. And shockingly enough, our dogs like to enjoy fresh fruit too. Angel knows when I’m cutting up fresh fruit or vegetables, she comes over and begs for it. I probably squealed like a pig when a box of Oregold® peaches arrived from Harry & David.

Why? Because I love the Harry & David brand. I remember my Mom would get these wonderful packages during the holidays with pears, gifts from her clients. Those were like gold to us! And their guarantee, the best in the business. Your complete satisfaction is guaranteed. Last year, I surprised Curtis when I ordered a ham & turkey from Harry & David. It was one of his Christmas presents. Why? Because he loves ham and I don’t eat it so it was perfect for him!

The quotation: the ripest peach is highest on the tree…is so true isn’t it? Low hanging fruit might be easy to attain but it might not be the best. A great motto for life.

Aren’t they pretty? Almost too perfect to eat. They taste amazing and just melt in your mouth. I told Curtis I want to make peach milkshakes with these peaches. He said just put them on ice cream and enjoy them. I can’t let it be. And I couldn’t just do a regular peach milkshake.

I browned some butter. It only takes a few minutes to brown them.

Add brown sugar and the peaches.

Cook them for a few more minutes and then let them cool before making your milkshake. Save that brown butter-sugar sauce and…

add that to the top of your milkshake along with some cookie crumbs. Makes me feel like I’m drinking a peach pie!

Brown Butter Peach Milkshakes Recipe

Yield: (2) 12 ounce milkshakes


3 Tablespoons unsalted butter

2 Harry & David Oregold® Peaches, sliced into wedges

2 Tablespoons light brown sugar

1 cup milk

4 large scoops of vanilla ice cream

4 vanilla cookies, crushed (I used Golden Oreos)


Add butter to a non-stick pan and melt on medium. Cook butter until it's browned, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add brown sugar and mix. Add Oregold® peach wedges and allow to cook for 5 to 10 minutes, flipping over peaches halfway through. Set aside and allow to cool for about 20 to 25 minutes.

Add milk, ice cream and peaches to a blender and pulse until well blended. Pour into two glasses and top with cookie crumbs and the remaining brown butter from the pan. Serve with straws and enjoy!

And if you want to skip the milkshakes, add those brown butter peaches on top of ice cream. Ooooh to die for!

    Surprisingly, as a kid I wasn’t a big fruit fan (like mangos and peaches) but now as an adult I can’t get enough of the fresh fruit. These milkshakes look amazing!

    These look delicious! And it’s the perfect time of year since it’s peak peach season. For the best peaches, head to your local farm!

      Hi Charles,

      The recipes are very similar, I agree with you on that. But I checked and my recipe was posted in August 2013 a year before Bobby Flay’s. Thanks for visiting!
