Blueberry-Peach Smoothie

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.
