"Just Peachy" Smoothie
Yesterday we went peach picking. It was a beautiful day and we couldn't resist eating those ripe, juicy peaches straight off the branch. The peaches were so inviting that I think we overdid it a little.....we came home with 1/2 a bushel....and now they are sitting in my fruit bowl, hanging out in my refrigerator, bagged up to give to friends and chopped up in our freezer ready for smoothies.
Last night my son and I came up with a smoothie recipe where peaches are the star. It was so delicious I had to blog it right away. We will be drinking a lot of these smoothies over the next week, I'm sure! And now I need to check Pinterest for more recipes....I'm thinking peach salsa, peach cobbler, peach ice cream.....
*Using frozen fruit in your smoothies means you do not need to add ice - ice always waters down the flavors - so try freezing your fruit when possible.
*This recipe makes enough for two medium size smoothies
2 or 3 fresh ripe peaches, cut up and frozen the night before, if possible
1 ripe banana, frozen if possible
1 orange, peeled
5 oz carton of vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup milk of your choice, regular/almond, etc
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together in a blender until completely smooth. Enjoy!
