Peaches and Cream Salad comes together in just a few minutes with only 4 ingredients! It’s the perfect recipe for using up all of those delicious fresh peaches and can be served as a side dish or even dessert!
For years, one of my favorite go-to recipes has been our Raspberry Vanilla Jello Salad, which has been a reader favorite as well! This salad comes together in just a few minutes and can be served immediately or made in advance which is so convenient when you need to bring something to a potluck or party at the last minute. I decided to try a peach version of this recipe and this Peaches and Cream Salad is just as good as the raspberry one! Actually, I think it would be amazing to combine the two-yum!
How do you make the best peach salad?
You need to use fresh peaches to make the very best Peaches and Cream Salad! The raspberry version uses frozen raspberries and I tried this version with frozen peaches but the consistency of the peaches was a little bit off. I’ve been waiting for peach season to come around to make this with fresh peaches, and the results are amazing! You can add even more peaches than the recipe calls for and the salad will just be even better!
Can you make Peaches & Cream salad in advance?
Peaches & Cream Salad will stay good in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 days and honestly, I like making it at least a day before serving because the peach flavor has more time to combine with the vanilla flavor. However, one of my favorite parts about this recipe is that you can make it 5 minutes before you need to eat it and it’s delicious that way too!

Where can you serve Peaches & Cream Salad?
This recipe is always a huge hit at potlucks and parties – everyone loves it! It’s the perfect dish to take when you need to throw something together at the last minute. This dish is sweet enough to work as a dessert, although sometimes we serve it alongside a meal, especially on special occasions. The Raspberry version of this recipe has become one of our traditional Thanksgiving dishes – although now that my kids have tried the Peaches and Cream version, we may have to swap that out this year!
What are some variations of Peaches & Cream Salad?
As I mentioned before, I think it would be delicious to combine both raspberries and peaches in this recipe, so that is next on my list to try. The original recipe calls for vanilla pudding and vanilla yogurt, but you can definitely play around with the flavors a little bit. You can swap in a little bit of peach yogurt for a peachier taste, or try using cheesecake pudding instead of vanilla for a bit of a different flavor. I love how versatile this recipe is!
