During a hot summer, what could be better for breakfast than a cool fruit smoothie?
Recently, I’ve been partially to the combination of peaches and strawberries. It started when the peaches I picked up from the grocery store were small and quite hard. Not good for eating, but my blender could turn them into something delicious.
At the time, I also had some cut strawberries in the fridge that I had sprinkled with sugar. Sweet and juicy, they were the perfect complement to rock hard peaches and plain yogurt. Since that morning, I’ve taken to simply washing and trimming a handful of strawberries, slicing up a peach, and throwing them in the blender with some Fage greek yogurt. A quick taste lets me know if a dash of sweetener is needed.
Strawberry Peach Smoothie
4-5 medium strawberries
1 small peach
1 cup whole milk Greek yogurt
2 ice cubes
sweetener of choice, if desired
Wash and remove stems from strawberries, toss in blender. Wash peach and cut slices; add to blender. Add yogurt and cover, blend.
Turn off blender and add ice cubes, blend again until liquified and frothy. Taste for sweetness, adding sweetener as needed.
