I love peach season. They can be a little tricky to grow here in Illinois. Sometimes the winters are just too hard on the trees, or the blossoms get frosted in spring. But oh, when things are just right, so are they.
This year seems to be a good year for peaches. None of my peach trees are producing yet, but the roadside stands have some delicious ones. My mother in law brought me these from a local farmer’s market, and they were good. Not that I got many. Most of them ended up in Little Foodie’s and Teen Foodie’s bellies. But at least they’re snacking on something healthy!
This smoothie is also very healthy, and a delicious way to start the day. I make them ahead of time and pop them in the freezer. If you take them out the night before, they’ll thaw all the way through. Sometimes I forget and end up with more of a smoothie “ice cream” or “gelato” type of thing. Still delicious! All of my smoothies are great as popsicles too.
