Super simple, ridiculously delicious strawberry peach smoothies. Sweet, creamy, fruity goodness!
Here’s a testament to how delicious these strawberry peach smoothies are. The other day Graeme and I were about to head out for some geocaching, and we were both hungry but didn’t want to take time to make dinner first. There was caching to be had, goshdarnit! So I figured I’d grab us a little snack.
I’d made this batch of smoothies the day before, and even though they weren’t fresh out the blender they were still peachy and strawberry-riffic and totally delicious. Like lip-smacking delicious. YummmmMMM!
I thought I’d offer Graeme some, even though he’s pretty skeptical about most food he’s offered, particularly if fresh fruit and veggies are involved.
Notice how I said I thought I’d offer? I didn’t want to offer. I wanted all this strawberry peach deliciousness for myself.
I hand him the glass and ask if he’d like to try it. He does try it – without asking me what’s in it! – and then proceeded to drink the whole thing.
And then he said he loved it…this beverage made of fruit. Fruit! That grows on trees! This is Graeme we’re talking about! I couldn’t even be bitter, although for a second I was because I thought we were going to share. This smoothie clearly has supernatural powers of deliciousness.
I’ve made up a new word to describe it: refreshious. The act of being refreshious is having refreshiousness. This smoothie is refreshious, and full of refreshiousness. And it’s so incredibly blasted simple to make!
You just cut up some strawberries and peaches, skin and all, and freeze them. Then chuck them into a blender or food processor with a little juice, maple syrup and your milk of choice. My milk of choice this time was some leftover coconut milk I’d saved from these fabulous no-churn homemade ice creams I keep making. Here’s the lemon one if you want to check it out. Don’t tell peach, but lemon is secretly my favorite.
But okay, I’m wandering. See, you don’t even need to arrange the fruit in a single layer or none of that. Bung it into a waxed paper lined pan and you’re set.
There’s usually a six degrees of leftovers going on with my recipes. This time I had leftover peaches from last week’s peach ice cream I wanted to use, and then I went to the store and saw flats of strawberries on sale for $1.50! And I suddenly knew I wanted peach and strawberry smoothies. I keep reading all these delicious smoothie recipes and getting all jelly because I don’t have smoothie refreshiousness in my life. Stop that and just make a smoothie. I’m better now.
I added a little orange juice to help bring out the peach flavor. I think of orange juice as kinda like salt for peaches. It just helps them bloom into full peach flavorosity. And some maple syrup too, for sweetness. These are so good I could start every single morning with one, and the fruity carbs and fiber and vitamins make me feel like an on-point clarity machine. And even Graeme loves them.

My calories and fat are effected by using coconut milk. Things will be a lot different if you're using something like unsweetened almond milk.
