A Peachy Plate: Smoothies!

One of my favorite things to make in the summer is a fresh fruit smoothie.  They taste so much better than whatever you might buy at Starbucks or [insert your nearest smoothie chain], they are healthier, and they are a great way to use local fresh fruit!

Strawberry season has more or less come to an end for us so I've moved on to peaches.  Today's smoothie was a peach and mango creation.  The trick is to put in mostly fresh fruit, a little bit of frozen fruit, and some liquid (I use soy milk or almond milk - whichever is handy).  I think yogurt would work in place of a milk, but make sure it is a limited ingredient yogurt.  It shouldn't have more than milk and cultures in it.

Mango-Peach Smoothie
(Note: I never measure smoothie ingredients, so these are purely estimates).

2 ripe peaches, peeled and pitted
1/2 ripe mago
5 or 6 pieces frozen mango chunks
1/2 c soy milk

The pre-blended fruit and the finished product in a reusable to-go cup!
