Smoothie Sunday: Peach Melba Smoothie

For those who don’t know, Peach Melba is a fairly simple dessert featuring peaches (sometimes grilled, vanilla ice cream, raspberry syrup, and oftentimes mint.  My dad really likes Peach Melba, and I just got it in my head last year that I should make a Peach Melba smoothie.  I like turning desserts into smoothies because I know it should be yummy.  I could have used ice cream in the smoothie if I really wanted to, but to keep things more on the healthy side I used my standby vanilla yogurt instead.  And it did turn out yummy!

What you’ll need.

Peach Melba Smoothie:

  • 1 peach, pit and skin removed
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • 1-2 mint leaves (or a couple of drops mint extract)
  • ¼ cup vanilla yogurt
  • 5 ice cubes
  • Pinch of salt
  • Sugar to taste*
  • Vanilla extract (optional)

Put the first 5 ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth.  Taste and add sugar and salt as needed (and vanilla if using).  Pulse to combine.  Pour into a tall glass and enjoy!

*If you have raspberry syrup on hand you can use that to sweeten the smoothie instead.
