A couple months ago I bought a blender. And since then I have become a smoothie connoisseur. I recently bought a new cookbook: 100 Best Smoothies and Juices because of this fact. When I buy a cookbook or get a new magazine in the mail, the first thing I do is look through everything and bookmark all the recipes I think I'd like to try. So I hereby announce that I will be doing a Smoothie of the Week feature each week here on Crafteroonie! I'm very excited :) Hopefully I'll be adventurous enough to test some new fruits or interesting combinations.
Unfortunately, the first smoothie I tried from the book was a flop. Read about it HERE. This week's smoothie was much more successful:
PEACH & ORANGE MILKSHAKE (Smoothie book)
scant 1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. peach yogurt
scant 1/2 c. orange juice
1 c. canned peach slices, drained (or use fresh)
6 ice cubes, crushed
Pour the milk, yogurt, and orange juice into a blender and blend gently until combined. Add the peach slices and ice cubes, and blend until smooth. Pour into chilled glasses and serve. Makes 2 servings.
I think peaches are my favorite fruit. It's rare to come across a bad one. When they make an appearance at the grocery stores during those later summer months, they are hard to pass up! (Watermelon is a close second favorite of mine, but it lost out of first place due to the fact that it's too easy to find a flavorless one. And those darn seeds!) So this smoothie/milkshake was right up my alley. It's hard to consider it a milkshake without the ice cream...am I the only one who thinks this way?? This was pretty GOOD. Nice strooong peach flavor. Very refreshing!
