I was pleasantly surprised when I went to Sprouts this week and they had fresh peaches. They didn't have a lot. They were $1.49 a lb. It was a fun splurge. They didn't taste like the ones at the end of Summer, but they were still very enjoyable. It made me feel a little bit of Summer in my mind. :) Simple pleasures in life are good. It is wonderful that we can enjoy peaches all year with the blessing of frozen peaches. So I thought it would be fun to make a peach smoothie, and this is what I came up with. You could add some spinach or oatmeal to make it even healthier. Have a peaceful weekend.
3/4 C nonfat plain Greek yogurt
3/4 C 1 percent milk
1 1/2 C frozen peach slices
2 T honey
