[This post originally appeared on my very first blog, Inn The Kitchen, about what it was like to be an innkeeper. Enjoy!]
Considering it is still hotter than a fresh biscuit here in Florida, and I needed an instant way to cool off. And a peaches and cream smoothie sounds just perfect.
As much as I’d like to have a hot cup of coffee or cocoa outside on my deck, that usually only happens inside with the air cranked up. This simple little peach smoothie drink is much better for Florida fall weather. Or summer. Or spring. What the heck, Florida really only has one season, right?
I actually dreamed up this recipe one morning when we had some friends over and I took a look in my fridge to see what kind of cool late-morning smoothie I could whip up to calm the sweat on our brow from an outdoor photo shoot.
Here’s what you’ll need: a bag of frozen peaches, whole milk, vanilla, and mint.
You could choose to use fresh peaches too. If so, add about 2 cups of ice.
Real simple. Throw it all into a blender …
About a cup of milk …
A cap full of vanilla …
And then blend.
If you want it to be more sweet, you could add a 1/2 Cup of sugar.
If you want it to be more relaxing, you could add some champagne instead of milk.
(I actually did in our second batch!)
But just as-is you’ll find this peaches and cream smoothie light and refreshing.
Relax. Refresh. Recharge. Repeat.
