Week 3, Recipe 1: Peach Pie Smoothie

  • 1/2 cup nonfat or 1 percent lowfat milk
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1 cup unsweetened frozen peaches
  • 1 tablespoon honey, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • Pinch ground ginger
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

Results: I love the smell of nutmeg!  I used I'm sure more than a cup of peaches.  I had amaretto honey so I used about 1.5 tbsp. that and might use more next time.  This probably could've benefited from straight up sugar but since she's the healthy chick I decided to follow her recipe as is this time.  I also added a bit more vanilla extract and cinnamon.  I'll probably use more nutmeg next time, too.  With all the peaches I used the spices are a bit more subtle than I'd like.  Still pretty yummy but needs to be tweaked.

I agree with Ladynay.. LOL

I'm not a fan of yogurt, but as long as I can't taste it, I'll give it try.

LOL at your comments! I was thinking the complete opposite that I'm so glad it's a virgin recipe :)
I will surely try this! I'm a huge fan of nutmeg too.

I'm becoming less of a drunk the older I get so it was a tad irritating that on the 100 recipes for singles list by food network I believe 1/2, HALF!! were cocktails. PROBLEM!!
