Here is a lovely cool summer smoothie that served a double duty for me. As I described in my post of Aug 10, I had some very heavy duty dental work done this week. As a result I am not able to chew on the right side of my mouth for the next two weeks. So, Mr. Lazy Cook set about putting together a healthy, tasty smoothie that relieved him of the obligation of chewing.
Here is the result. I had two peaches that I picked up earlier this week. I cut them up and removed the pits. Into the Vita-Mix machine. I started with half a cup of non-fat plain yogurt and half a cup of soy milk. I found some celery in my fridge. Into the machine.
Toss in a cup of ice cubes and start the machine. I ran it 30 seconds on low speed and another 30 seconds on high. Remove cover and enjoy lovely cold peach aroma.
MMmmm good. It tasted just great; just like a peach milk shake. Very smooth and cool. Perfect for a sunny August afternoon. Didn’t chew one time.
