Imagine my delight when I walked into the grocery yesterday and was greeted with a huge display of ripe peaches. They had white peaches, yellow peaches, even Saturn peaches – which are also known as donut peaches for their flat appearance and sweeter flavor.
With visions of peach muffins, peach upside down cake, and peach ice cream dancing in my head my instant instinct was to buy a couple pounds of peaches. Then I remembered that that peach season is just beginning and perhaps I should pace myself?
Instead, I bought half a dozen peaches and decided to start by sharing one of my seasonal favorites, this strawberry peach smoothie. With only 4 ingredients it’s one of my favorite ways to start a summer day.
I like peaches and strawberries so much that I grow them both in my backyard. With the look of the plants this year I should be able to make this smoothie with fruit straight from my garden by the end of the summer.
That’s if I can keep the dog from eating them first!! Last year my baby peach tree grew quite a few, but Tuck always seemed to get to the ripe ones first. This year, I’m on ultra peach watch. They are tiny, but gorgeous!
For today’s photoshoot I used some frozen strawberries left over from the end of last summer.
They were at the peak of ripeness when I froze them, so I know they can hold their own when it comes to bringing the sweet into this smoothie.
When talking peaches, nothing beats the flavor of in season fresh peaches. However, in a pinch (or the off season) frozen peaches will do the trick.
To make this smoothie, give the fruit a good rinse, remove the pit from the peach and the tops from the strawberries. Place them all in your blender or food processor along with the greek yogurt and milk. Blend it until smooth and give it a taste.
If you are using all peak season fruit you probably won’t need any additional sweetness.
However, if you have a sweet tooth or are using fruit that’s less than ideal, you may want to add a little extra sweet to dial up the flavor. Honey is one of my favorites, but you can use any sweetener of your choice.
Serve immediately and enjoy thoroughly!
