Elimination Diet- Peach Smoothie
I purchased three large peaches. And they are ripe and juicy. Freestone like the image above. I had planned to eat them--just like that. But decided to try a smoothie.
I checked out the recipes on line and found one, with a comment from someone who registered on the site to just be able to comment on the peach smoothie---- he liked it that much. That was impressive.I won't register on a site, no matter how much I like something.
I have a Vitamix so if you try this with any other blender--your results might be different.
One large peach. Remove pit but leave on peel. One frozen banana. I wrap ripe bananas in foil and stick them in the freezer. One half cup raw cashews. (you may need to presoak them- I didn't have to) One big handful of frozen blueberries for sweetening. 4 ounces of vanilla yogurt. I think I also added some water. More than ½ a cup. Turned on the Vitamix and let her rip.
I usually open the lid up and stir with a spoon and taste. See if it's too sour, too green--whatever and then try and add something to make it taste okay. This tasted okay.
I divide the smoothie into Working Jars from Crate & Barrel. They come with lids. I wasn't going to actually drink the smoothie until this morning so I poured, capped and put them in the fridge. Still thick and smooth this morning. And delicious. I will be blending up the last peach later today.
And then I might go looking for more peaches.
