Some Like It Hot
When I was younger, being from Canada, where we had loooong winters, I loved the hot summer months. Then I moved to Texas and the winters were short, the summers long and sauna-like. Then I moved to California, and spent 4 oven-like summers in the Central Valley… So I’ve decided I like LA summers. Yes, it’s still really hot. But, it’s usually cool at night, and not so bad during the day. 🙂
But, there are days when it is just bad. It’s just hot and gross and even sometimes muggy (no, not muggy like Texas or Ontario muggy, but still muggy all the same… how many times can I write “muggy” in one sentence). For those days, there is this drink/dessert/treat/whatever you want to call this peachy deliciousness.
It’s so easy to make this! Toss it in a blender and eat it up. It’ll take you 5-10 minutes from start to bite. It’ll cool you down from the inside out. And, it’s got protein and fruit, so it’s GOOOOOOOD for you!!
- 1 C Greek yogurt
- 1 1/2-2 frozen bananas
- 1-2 very ripe peaches
- 1/2-1 C milk (depending on how thick you want it)
- Add yogurt, bananas, and peaches in a blender (I used my KitchenAid Hand Blender, but you could use a regular blender too). Add a little bit of milk and blend. Add more milk until it reaches desired thickness.
- Serve it like a smoothie, or like soft serve frozen yogurt!
Makes about 2 C
For a dairy-free version you could sub soy or almond milk for the cow’s milk, and use soy or almond yogurt for the Greek.
You could sub other fruits for the bananas: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, boysenberries, melon (about 1-1 1/2 C – if using fresh, toss in a few ice cubes, or use frozen Greek yogurt – by that I mean freeze some or all of your container of Greek yogurt). Or you could do all peaches or nectarines.
