I love the brilliant color of summer foods. This simple smoothie takes two summer fruits, adds yogurt, for protein and richness, a little honey for sweetness, and voila! You can start your day with a delicious and nutritious breakfast beverage.
Summer berries are abundant now and they are little powerhouses of nutrients: antioxidants, fiber, vitamins. Blueberries and peaches are great flavor pals, and together they provide the flavor and color in this version of a breakfast drink. I use frozen peaches; not because I don’t have access to fresh fruit, but because they add that frosty smoothness to the drink without diluting it, like ice cubes would do. Season your smoothie with a little almond extract, if you like, and a pinch of salt. Cheers! It’s a great way to start a summer day.
A summer fruit smoothie full of the flavor of blueberries, peaches, and honey yogurt. Delicious and nutritious.
- 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed and any small stems removed
- 8 ounces honey-flavored yogurt (I use Noosa brand)
- 2 tablespoons whole milk
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 3/4 cup frozen peach chunks
- 2-3 drops almond extract (optional)
- a pinch Kosher salt
Put all the ingredients in a blender container and blend on high speed until completely smooth. If you have a high power blender, use the smoothie option. Pour into serving glasses and garnish with additional blueberries, if you like. Enjoy!
