Peachy Keen

During the summer, I love peaches. The JA and I have differing opinions on how ripe they should be. He likes them not ripe at all, and places them in the refrigerator as soon as we get home. I let them ripen for a few days, then put them in the fridge for safekeeping.

Needless to say, we normally have a few lying around. Here’s how we’ve used them lately:

Grilled Peaches and Ice Cream (recipe via my love, The Pioneer Woman)
We didn’t have pecans on hand, but subbed sliced walnut pieces. Still delicious.

Citrus Smoothie
I made this concoction for breakfast today. Great way to use peaches that are past their prime or bruised!

Blend together:
1 peach, sliced into small pieces
Handful blueberries
1/2 c. orange juice
1/3 frozen banana
1 tsp. mix of chia and flaxseed
1/4 c. protein powder

I’d love to try this with some pineapple and mango, but didn’t have any on hand. Oh well. Next time!

Are you picky about your fruit? There’s a fine window for me with a lot of food – bananas, peaches and strawberries have to be just right for me to fully enjoy them!
