Peaches, peaches and more peaches please! I just can’t get enough of them! Shhh, no one tell my husband, but I think I’m going to get another lug of them tomorrow – I just can’t contain myself! That’s ok though, he loves me and my peach addiction so all is good. My cousin in Alaska said she wasn’t sure if she would be able to find any good fresh peaches up there, and after receiving that dreadful news I seriously considered what it would take and how much it would cost to get a lug of fresh peaches sent up to her. Poor soul, no one should ever live without fresh peaches at least once a year in their life! I may still be considering how we could make this happen…
This smoothie is a great mid-day refresher and pick-me-up. The fresh peaches shine through and give it a great sweet and tangy taste. Its light and velvety all at the same time! If you really can’t get ahold of any good fresh peaches, or if you just gotta have this smoothie outside of peach season, frozen peaches will do. I would just lower the amount of frozen mango that you use so that it doesn’t become too thick. Weird fact about me: I absolutely LOVE peach skins. Peaches just aren’t the same with out them! I don’t know about you, but I just gotta have them! This recipe calls for the peach skins to be left on, but if you are someone who can’t stand them, then feel free to peel your peach prior.
The recipe listed below is for one smoothie serving, so if you are making it for a crowd just double it per person you are serving. Or just make them all individually because who doesn’t love getting to blend things up in a blender and pour into mason jar with a colorful straw? Ok, I may just be talking about myself. Anyways, this smoothie is like sweet, sweet summertime and you just gotta have it. Oh, and it’s dairy-free!
