Archive for the ‘Peaches’ Category

With all the peaches we’ve had lately, we’ve been making this refreshing slushy quite a bit. It’s so easy that I don’t think I can really give you a recipe, but I’ll tell you what we do. For our 8 cup capacity VitaMix, we put about 3 cups water in the blender container and then add frozen peaches while the motor is running until the container is full. Add a spoonful of honey or a pinch of stevia powder, and it’s done.

This slushy is equally good made with frozen strawberries instead of the peaches. Yum!

Minus the sugary sweetness of the store bought frozen treat, this really does taste like orange & peach sherbet. I use a Vita Mix for mine, which is powerful enough to handle this super thick smoothie. If you’re using an ordinary blender, you will probably need to add another orange or two.

When I make this smoothie with organic oranges, I often add a half inch piece of the rind for extra flavor and vitamin C complex. Try peeling your oranges with a knife so you can leave on some of the nutritious white pith too. The carrot is added for color and beta carotene, but you can’t taste it.

2 oranges, peeled, seeds removed
1 cup frozen peaches
1 frozen banana, broken into chunks
1 small piece orange rind (optional)
1/2 carrot (optional)

Put the oranges in the blender first, then slowly add the frozen ingredients and orange rind while the blender is running. Use the Vita Mix tamper or add extra oranges as necessary. Serve with a spoon.
