With all the sweet Texas Peaches coming into season, I helped myself to a few frozen peach smoothies.
THERE'S NOTHING TO IT
- 6 ripe peaches
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup orange juice or water
Peel peaches and cut into 1 inch pieces. Place in a 1-quart freezer bag and freeze for at least 1 to 2 hours.
Transfer frozen peach pieces to a drink blender, start with 1/4 cup of orange juice or water, blend on high until smooth. You may need to add the other 1/4 cup of juice or water if the consistency is too thick.
Pour into serving glasses and you're ready for a treat!
If you have popsicle molds, this recipe would be good for making peachy popsicles. If you don't have popsicle molds, well then, IMPROVISE!
Get a small plastic cup, a spoon, and a little aluminum foil, enough to make a lid for the cup. Fill the plastic cup with about 1/2 cup of peach smoothie. Put the spoon down into the smoothie. Push the foil down over the spoon handle so that the handle is in the center of the cup. The foil keeps the spoon handle upright. Place the cup in the freezer and freeze for at least one hour. The homemade popsicle smoothie should pop right out with a little twist. If it doesn't budge right away, then run the bottom of the cup under cold water to set it free.
