Method: 
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil over medium heat. Cut a small "X" through the bottom of each peach, then drop them into the water to blanch until the skin begins to curl back, about 20 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, transfer peaches to a bowl of ice water. When peaches are cooled, drain well then peel them, starting from the "X" at the bottom of each peach. Discard skin and pits and transfer peaches to a blender.

Add 2 cups water, apple juice, honey, lime zest and juice, salt and pepper and blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. 

Pour soup into bowls or cups, garnish with mint and serve.
