Welcome to Day 4 of Ice Cream Week 2014! This year, the event is hosted by Kim ofCravings of a Lunatic and Susan of  The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We have teamed up with 25 amazing bloggers to make satisfy all your Ice Cream Cravings.

Today we’re going to talk about peaches. More specifically, about peach pie milkshakes.

My berry obsession knows no limits this year. I’ve been packing them into muffins, like these blueberry lemon poppy seed muffins or these gluten-free strawberry coconut muffins. If you’re looking for a more indulgent recipe, try these cherry chocolate chip cupcakes.

All berries. No peach.
