This is a cool, light and refreshing summer smoothie. Use your own choice of fruit to make your own flavor. Smoothies often contain fruit juice, but I used water to reduce the sugar in this. But how healthy is this smoothie? Peaches are high in potassium, beta carotene, fiber and a good source of Vitamin C. Strawberries are high in antioxidants and there is current research looking into possible anti-inflammatory properties. [Source: healthfood-guide.com]
- 2 medium peaches cut into large chunks (I prefer to leave the peel on)
- 4 or 5 fresh strawberries
- 1 cup water
- 1 T. lemon juice
- 1 packet of powdered stevia sweetener (optional)
- 10 – 12 large ice cubes (more or less as needed)
- Combine fruit, water lemon juice and sweetener in blender.
- Puree until fruit is liquefied.
- Add ice cubes one at a time and blend until ice cubes are crushed and the drink is thick.

This past weekend was our village picnic. Bob and I worked together on this watermelon basket. We took this so there would be something we could eat for dessert. Don’t forget fresh fruit is naturally sweet and gluten free. When you live with food restrictions you learn to think about these things.
Not bad for a first try. It was a bit of work (Bob carved the melon to make the basket) but was a big hit at the picnic — until the 5 gallons of homemade ice cream showed up. :)
I don’t know what I’ll do when I run out of that green and white wired ribbon. It’s my go to ribbon when I need to make a bow.
