A Smoothie Concoction You Don't Want to Miss

Smoothies have been a frequent habit of late. They're quick, easy, and use up the leftover fruit, spinach and milk in my refrigerator. And considering that grocery shopping has fallen to the bottom of the to-do list for... well... we're going on weeks now, these are really the only items I have anyway.



Watermelon Yogurt Smoothie

2 cups of diced watermelon
1 cup plain yogurt
2 Tbsp maple syrup
4 ice cubes of peach puree (in lieu of this, you could use 1 cup of frozen peaches)
1 cup of milk
1 Tbsp almond or peanut butter (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a blender and "smoothify"until the texture is consistent. Serve with a 1/4 cup of this granola.

(Update: Apparently I posted a similar recipe back in 2010. Make both and decide which is your favorite.)

Question of the Day: Is it bizarre that I put granola in my smoothie and eat it like a smoothie soup?

  1. Peach ice cubes? Yes please! Sounds awesome!

  2. Mimi always tells me that the only difference between a smoothie and fruit soup is the container out of which you eat them (cup vs. bowl). So no, not strange to eat granola with your smoothie!
