Summer, summer, summer! Oh, how I love summer! And one of the best things about summer, especially here in the South, is all the wonderful fresh peaches!

Creamy Peach Freeze Smoothie Recipe

You’ll need:

1 1/2 cups frozen vanilla yogurt*

1 1/2 cups fresh peaches, diced and divided

1/2 cup organic milk

1 tablespoon sugar, or to taste. Substitute stevia or honey, if desired.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon Wild Oats Marketplace Organic Ground Nutmeg

1/2 cup ice

Reserve 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the peaches and set aside. Add all remaining and mix together in a blender until smooth. Stir reserved peaches into smoothie. Put blender container into the freezer for about 10 minutes, or until the mixture begins to freeze. Remove from freezer, stir and pour into a glass or mug. Enjoy!

Make it boozy! Substitute a tablespoon or two of good quality dark rum for the vanilla extract. Decrease milk to 1/4 cup.
