Peaches & Cream Smoothie
Peaches are my favourite summer fruit. Fresh, plump, juicy and sweet, they are perfect summer ingredient for a sweet or savoury recipe. I love to buy them when they are ripe and in season, slice them up and freeze them for later use. This peaches and cream smoothie is a fun new way to celebrate these fuzzy fruits, and it works equally well with fresh or frozen peaches.
For this recipe, I used fresh peaches because they were in season, but if you have frozen peaches you can certainly use those too. I would not suggest using canned peaches, I never do, because they are packaged in syrups with extra sugars that are less than ideal, but it also takes away from the natural sweetness that peaches provide. Fresh peaches get sweeter and juicier as they ripen, and squeezing them will let you know how ripe they are; if it starts to give it is ripe, while if it is still hard to the touch it will need a few more days to ripen. When I have a lot of fresh peaches, and I’m not sure what to do with them, I like to slice them into wedges and store them in a plastic bag in the fresher, for months to come. Alternatively, if you are buying frozen peaches at the store, be sure to read the label to ensure that they only contain peaches and no added sugars.
