Without doing it on purpose, I have this yearly habit of eating one fruit for most of the summer season. Last year it was berries and the year before that watermelon. This summer, my fruit’s been peaches, big and juicy ones. Aren’t they the best?
While these seasonal obsessions often come about without any obvious reason why, things are a bit more clear-cut this year: they’ve been in ample and free supply at work, and Brian and I have our eyes set on moving to Atlanta. This here easy peach smoothie was made with Peach Capital, U.S.A in mind.
To make two smoothies, combine 6 ice cubes, half a cup of non-fat vanilla greek yogurt, and two peaches, sliced and peeled, in a blender. Blend until smooth. Give things a taste and add honey if you’d like. Pour into two glasses and serve.
My peaches were super sweet and the extra honey wasn’t necessary. Another idea for a little something more is to add a dash of orange juice.
There you have it. The easiest of smoothie recipes that’s just the right amount of sweetness and goes down so very smoothly. Best of all, one glass will only set you back 1 or 3 Weight Watchers points (that’s right, back on the WW).
I say 1 or 3, because generally speaking fresh fruit costs no points, so the only point value comes from the greek yogurt. The one caveat to the no-point-fruit rule is when said fruit is blended or juiced. It has something to do with your body not breaking them down the same way. Not surprisingly, I prefer to ignore that bit of fine print and choose to go with the 1-point calculation, but even at an impressively low 3 points, these smoothies are absolutely worth it. Drink up!
