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!
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.
