For my sunflower themed party, I knew I wanted a fun, colorful drink.
Peach smoothies seemed perfect.
They were so easy to make and quite yummy (unless you ask Captain Cavedweller, but we aren’t giving him a vote in this particular instance).
The girls liked the drinks and I loved the straws!
The ingredients are really simple (and I forgot to put ice in the photo – sorry!).
Dump everything in your blender, let it crunch and grind until it’s smooth. Pour in chilled glasses and garnish with a slice of peach.
Okay, here is the recipe…
2 cups milk
2 cups frozen sliced and peeled peaches
1/4 cup orange juice
1 cup ice cubes
2 tbsp. sugar (optional)
1 fresh peach, peeled and sliced (optional)
Mix milk, frozen peaches, orange juice and ice in a blender. Mine has a smoothie setting. Use whatever will crunch up the frozen peaches and ice and get a nice smooth blend. Since I like things sweeter than normal people, I added a little sugar to this, but you can skip if you want since you get some sweetness from the orange juice.
While the smoothie is mixing, set some glasses in the freezer to chill.
Once the smoothie is done, pour into glasses (six small or four large). For added panache, you can set a peach slice on top and finish with a fun straw. Mint leaves would also make a pretty garnish.
