Swingin’ Summer Saturdays and Sundays – “Shake Your Smoothie” (Part 2)

Today’s delicious recipe comes from Jessica Phillips of Bloomington, IN and can also be found in Gooseberry Patch’s Blue Ribbon family favorites, tried and true recipes from Gooseberry Patch family and friends. (page 41 – same as Nutty Banana Shake)

Just Peachy Coconut Smoothie

The natural sweetness from the peaches and honey is divine! 

Ingredients

16-oz. pkg. frozen peaches, divided

14-oz. can coconut milk

2 T. unsweetened flaked coconut

2 T. honey

1 t. vanilla extract

Directions

Place half the peaches in a blender;reserve remaining peaches for another recipe.  Add remaining ingredients to blender; process until smooth and creamy, about 30 seconds.  If consistency is too thin, add a few extra frozen peaches to thicken.  Serves 2.

Michele’s Thoughts

This was a lovely way to start a Saturday morning.  It was smooth, creamy and naturally sweet.  My grocery store did not have frozen peaches so I cut up 2 peaches and put them in the freezer overnight.

This is the 4th recipe I tried from Gooseberry Patch’s Blue Ribbon family favorites cookbook.  I enjoyed every one and highly recommend adding this book to your collection.  I will be trying out more from this cookbook, especially have my eye on the Southern Oatmeal Cookies.  I have some ideas for tweaking it, but more about that at another time.
