(Update 18/08/2015: this post was written before I started my Slimming World journey. Whilst delicious and nutritious this recipe does not form part of the SW plan:) ).

I can’t bear to throw away fresh fruit (it’s so expensive!) but neither my children, or myself, particularly like over-ripe fruit. One great way to use it up is in a fresh smoothie.

ripe peaches

I bought this punnet of peaches just under a week ago and they weren’t quite ripe. I rested them to the side, then forgot about them. They may look okay, but actually, they were starting to turn. I reckon another day or two and they would have been all fuzzy!

To make a super-easy peach smoothie, you will need:

  • 4 ripe peaches (peeled and stoned)
  • 1 small carton fat-free or low-fat natural yoghurt
  • a splash of fresh orange juice or milk to thin consistency

Peel and chop your peaches and toss into blender

Add an entire (small) carton of yoghurt.

This is a great task to let the kiddos help with and have fun making fresh, nutritious food!

Whizz on full-speed until blended and smooth.

Depending on your preference, you can also add a splash of milk or fresh orange juice to thin the consistency.

It was great to see Lauren enjoy it so much, too.

I even kept a little aside to freeze as ice pops… ¬†sneaking even more fresh fruit into their diet, cleverly disguised as a treat!

… oh, and whilst those coloured paper straws look fun, they were not a good idea with smoothies. They just went all mushy after a short while. Not good.

Do you eat smoothies?
