Peach Smoothie

Today was sunny and warm with a breeze -- can life get any
better than this?  I made this and then took it out on my deck to bask in the sun
like a cat. Oh, how I have longed for the sun.
The smoothie tasted so fresh, delicious, and healthy.

As I am enjoying the sun, I am mindful of the terrible storms
that have wreaked havoc on the lives of those in the South.
May we keep them in our prayers.


Recipe for Peach Smoothie

3 cups frozen, slightly thawed, peach slices
1-1/2 cup peach nectar -- I used Jumex found at Wal-Mart
1 cup vanilla yogurt

Put in blender and swirl until completely mixed together.  Serve right away.  Serves about 4. 
Fresh peaches would also be good, but they are not to be found in my area right now.

I am playing along with Michael Lee West's
Foodie Friday today.  Her main character Teeny, in the book Gone
With a Handsomer Man, is from the south.  Today we
have been asked to make something for Foodie Friday
that would fit along with her new book; I haven't
read the book, so there is no review, just a fresh
and tasty Peach Smothie that any Southern gal
would like.

I am so looking forward to fresh peaches that come into season in June here in Arkansas. The devastation of that storm is unbelievable. It stalled and dumped 14 inches of rain in our area and then went eastward to spawn tornadoes. The lake looks like a river, so muddy.

We love smoothies at our house! I will definitely be making this :)

Jacqueline said...

Isn't it nice enough to have weather that you could drink a smoothie?!! I can't believe it is finally pretty, but snow is supposed to come again tomorrow.

I love anything peach. I need to plant another peach tree as mine died. Nothing better than a fresh peach off the tree. Store peaches don't compare.

I am currently sitting on my front porch watching my grandson zoom past on his new bike enjoying a Peach Smoothie, thanks for the recipe. And our prayers are also with those affected by those terrible storms.

Joni, my little granddaughter drank two peach smoothies for breakfast last week, and I told her I'd find a recipe--here it is! Thank you so much for inviting me and Teeny into your kitchen. XX00

I have never had a peach smoothie. Don't know why because I adore smoothies. But I do see one in the near future!

Even here in Greece we heard about the chaos these storms created in the Southern States of US. This smoothie is very appropriate for the season now!

Marlis said...

Yummy.. that I can have. Yogurt, just no milk. I looked for peaches too, none to be had.. Happy Sunday!

Debbie said...

Oh that looks so good! Of course it is a bit chilly here today, and gray and wet. It didn't stop us from visiting the local ice cream shop for a red velvet cake frozen yogurt cone!
