Say goodbye to the mild summer days of June. July is here, and things are definitely heating up. Seems like I’m always working on a new way to beat the heat in the kitchen lately.
And this week is no exception. This super quick recipe with fresh fruits is a great way to cool off. Staying hydrated is so important during these hot days. So why not make it flavorful, too?
Peach harvest is in full swing throughout the state and, from what I am seeing, the crops are great. Sweet and juicy is a perfect combination for this frosty drink.
Start by washing and patting dry all of the fruit. Then remove the stone (seed) from the peaches and chop into small chunks. Leave the skin on, because you won’t notice it once blended. And it adds a little tartness.
This smoothie is light and refreshing. Sure to cool you down in the heat of this Texas summer. Be sure to watch out in the heat as the temperatures climb. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
