Drizzling Mint Simple Syrup on fresh chopped peaches creates a delicious, hyper-seasonal summer dessert.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 4 peaches


  1. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring sugar and 1 cup water to a boil. Add mint. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.
  2. Transfer syrup to a small metal bowl and let sit until cool, about 10 minutes.
  3. While syrup cools, cut peaches into wedges or chunks and divide among 4 plates or shallow bowls. Drizzle with cooled mint syrup to taste. Garnish with mint leaves, if you like, and serve immediately.
