Peaches and cream oatmeal makes delicious, easy, quick, simple peach flavored breakfast porridge perfect for summer or fall! In fact, you can make them any time you want even if it's not summer or fall. While you can use fresh peaches to make this oatmeal during summer season and also during the beginning of fall/autumn months, you can make this using canned peaches during other times of the year when fresh peaches are not available.
In this creamy oatmeal recipe, I used ripe, fresh and sweet white peaches.
But you may use ripe yellow peaches as well or you can use canned peaches too if fresh peaches are not available.
Also make sure to use fresh heavy cream to make the oatmeal more creamy and rich!

White Peaches Vs Yellow Peaches
White peaches are less often found in markets compared to yellow peaches.
This is because yellow peaches are most popular variety of peaches and are most easily available during peach season.
Even the canned peaches I have used are mostly yellow peaches.
While yellow peaches are popularly used for baking, cooking, grilling or in salads, white peaches are also great for enjoying in salads or any recipes using peaches in baking, cooking, grilling etc.
In fact, you may substitute white peaches with yellow peach or vice versa as needed in most recipes, unless the recipe specifically calls for using yellow peaches or white peaches.
The main difference between white peach and yellow peach is in the color of the flesh of the fruit.
When you peel a yellow peach, you can see that the color of the flesh of the fruit is mild yellow or even light orange when it's well ripened.
When you peel a white peach, you will see that the color of the flesh of the fruit is white or ivory (off white).
The texture of the white peaches are slightly more delicate than yellow peaches.
With regards to taste, the white peaches are slightly more sweeter and less sour than yellow peaches.
The taste of yellow peaches are more intense and strong with a very noticeable peachy flavor (natural flavor as expected), while white peaches have a mild flavor.
Sometimes I feel like the flavor of white peaches is also similar to that of ripe pears!
Also, white peaches tend to ripe faster than yellow peaches if you leave them in your kitchen counter so you need to watch them carefully so they are not spoiled.

How To Tell If White Peach Is Ripe?
I have noticed that white peaches ripe pretty fast even if you got them unripe from the market!
While unripe white peaches are firm or hard when you touch, ripe white peaches are delicate and soft when you gently press with your fingers.
The peel even starts to wrinkle a bit at some parts (it is smooth just before it starts ripening) which is a sign that the fruit has ripened.
Once you have peeled the white peach and slice them (discard the pit), you will notice that the flesh of the ripe fruit is delicate, juicy and sweet.
If you think the white peach is unripe today and if you leave it in the counter for ripening, make sure to check the next day because the white peach can ripen fast!
