Ginger Peach Smoothie

June 22, 2010

It was hot, I wasn’t super hungry and I had 4 Tivo’d shows to watch last night – Design Star, The Next Food Network Star, Army Wives and Drop Dead Diva.

We did an overnight camping trip Saturday to Sunday and then Sunday night we spent Father’s Day with the family at my bro’s house. No time for TV, no time to grocery shop for the week.

I love thumbing through magazines at the check-out – yes, I’m one of those people. No worries, 99% of the time I end up buying them if I don’t already subscribe. Last time I was at the grocery store,  I picked up the Taste of Home – Summer Appetizers 2010. I bought the 2009 version and I used quite a few of the recipes last Summer.  I love that there are photos on every page.

I had everything but 1 item to make a Ginger Peach Smoothie, so I stopped by the store to grab milk for Dan and the one item I was missing.

Smoothie Ingredients:

2 Cups Frozen Unsweetened Sliced Peaches
1 Cup Plain Yogurt
1/2 Cup Apricot Nectar (The item I didn’t have)
1/4 Cup Ginger Ale, Chilled
2 Tablespoons Honey
1/8 -1/4 Teaspoon Minced Fresh Gingerroot
(Note – the recipe has a ginger tip listed – says when stored in a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag, unpeeled gingerroot can be frozen for up to 1 year) – Hmm… good to know.

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, process and then pour into a chilled glass.

The smoothie was delicious! I sat outside by the pool looking through magazines while Higgy played in the yard. It was the perfect “First day of Summer” treat!

What’s your favorite smoothie combo?

  1. i still like my green monsters and am looking forward to using fresh-picked blueberries… though they don’t keep me very full for very long these days – i still feel healthy by drinking one in the morning… this smoothie looks delish! =)


    • Have yet to try a green monster – maybe with the hotter weather I’ll branch out.


  2. LOL, great cooks think alike ;o) Your smoothie looks totally amazing and delicious! I’m adding the ingredients to my shopping list and making this soon since we all can’t get enough of smoothies with this heat. Great recipe!


    • Most definitely. Your oatmeal smoothie looked great too! Going to try that one for sure.
