Peach Berry and Cream Smoothie

You’ll love this creamy smoothie for breakfast.  Or a dessert.  Or just because.

When fresh fruits and berries are on sale it’s so temping to stock up.  But you can only eat so much at a time so it’s not always practical to buy them in large quantities.

So here’s an idea, if they go on sale for an irresistible price, buy extra and freeze them for smoothies!

Here are some tips for freezing berries and fruits.

Preparation for freezing berries:

  1. Remove the leaves and, or stems
  2. Put the berries in a strainer or colander and rinse them in cool water
  3. Transfer the berries on to a paper-towel lined plate and let them completely air dry

Preparation for freezing fruit:

  1. Prepare the fruit in the same way that you would just before using it (peel a banana and cut it in half; peel and core an apple; for peaches and nectarines, cut the fruit away from the pit; for a mango, peel it and cut the fruit away from the seed).
  2. Cut the fruit in bite size pieces so they’ll fit well not only in the plastic bag but also in your freezer (except for a banana, depending on how ripe it is, just cutting it in half may be best).

To prevent the berries and fruit from freezing in a “solid block” form:

  1. Spread the berries and fruit out on a pan or plate that will fit in your freezer (i.e. a large plate, small pizza pan or smaller sized metal pan like a brownie pan).
  2. Place the berries and fruit in the freezer just long enough until they’re slightly frozen (about an hour).
  3. Then transfer them to a plastic Ziploc or zip-top bag.
  4. Squeeze out as much air as possible from the bag before tightly sealing it.
  5. Store in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Then all you have to do to make a smoothie is add the frozen berries and, or fruit to a blender along with liquid, yogurt, honey or whatever you like and presto……right before your eyes….a smoothie.

For this peach berry smoothie I used fresh white peaches, frozen strawberries, a banana and a bit of heavy cream for good measure.

Let’s check out the ingredients:

Strawberries, peaches, banana, honey, and heavy whipping cream….and also some ice.

Here’s how to make it:

Cut the peaches from the seed (leaving the skin on)….

These happened to be white peaches but yellow peaches would work well too.

….and add them to the blender skin and all.

Then,

add the banana,

strawberries,

cream (instead of cream you could use plain yogurt if you prefer),

honey, and

ice to the blender.

Then blend away…

blending…

blending some more…

almost done…

one more second…

ok…done.

Serve immediately while it’s ice cold and…

…enjoy…

…each and every…

…delicious sip.
