Peach Perfection

(Fuzzy goodness)

One of my favorite things about summertime is a ripe and juicy peach. I love it when you bite into one and the juice just runs down to your elbows. There is some debate where the best peaches come from, some say Georgia, others South Carolina, and still others say California. I did find some organic, local Texas peaches and I have to say, not bad, not bad at all. When buying peaches, choose organic. They are #4 on the dirty dozen list, one of the fruits with the highest amount of pesticides.

(Choose plain lowfat Greek yougurt. It is packed with protein and the only ingredients are milk, cream, and cultures! Delicious!)

Today’s smoothie was more like a milkshake. It was that good. And so simple.

Friday (Peaches and Cream) Smoothie

1 whole ripe peach, peeled and pitted

½ cup low-fat Greek yogurt

4 ice cubes

(Looks and tastes like a milkshake. Yummers.)

Blend away and enjoy on a hot summer day!
