It’s peak peach season, so I figured it’s time for a new peach smoothie. According to Russ Parsons (author of my favorite book about produce, How to Pick a Peach), the warm winter led to a 2015 peach crop that will be short and sweet. Don’t miss out on this year’s peaches!
It’s been a while since I’ve discussed this, so I just wanted to point out that in this recipe, like most of my smoothies, I put the power of the Vitamix to work by using whole nuts and water. This saves money and convenience compared to buying nut milk. (I previously wrote up some price comparisons for buying vs. blending your own.) In addition to not having to store nut milk, using water ice cubes is generally more convenient than frozen cubes of nut milk, which you would need to chill this sort of smoothie without making it too watery.
For each serving:
¼ cup cashew nuts
⅓ cup water
1 ripe peach (remove pit!)
½ cup frozen blueberries
couple shakes of ground cinnamon (a pinch?)
4 ice cubes
Blend on high until smooth and enjoy!
