This tasty recipe for a peaches and strawberries smoothie is just what we need on a warm summer day. The recipe is from TasteOfHome and you’ll find it on the next page.

Peaches are plentiful at the market at the moment in my area – hope they are with you, too. And while there were no strawberries at the market, I can find plenty in the store. So this seems a perfect combination for a tasty summer smoothie. (Even if you come across this recipe out of season, these delicious fruits are always available frozen, too.)

In fact, freezing is a great way to deal with a fruit glut. Take advantage of the great prices farmers’ markets or stores offer when the various fruits are in season. You can enjoy them fresh and when you’ve had enough – assuming that’s before the season ends, lol! – freeze the excess for wintertime smoothie, baking or dessert treats.
As I said, the original recipe is from TasteOfHome, but I’ve included a few suggestions that will help diabetics and those concerned about blood sugar levels to enjoy it, too. Dairy, in the form of milk, yogurt or kefir is a good base from which to start. However, there is more you can do.
