I love having the Food Network as background noise whenever I’m cleaning my room or checking emails. It’s soothing to me in a funny way.
My favorite show to watch is Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger. I love how she uses healthy ingredients in every recipe and tells you a little bit about their nutritional value. It just makes you feel good about what you’re eating.
This weekend, she made a Peach Pie Smoothie that was just too delicious looking to ignore. I pretty much went straight to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients.
Here’s what you need:
- 1/2 cup nonfat or 1 percent lowfat milk
- 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
- 1 cup unsweetened frozen peaches
- 1 tablespoon honey, plus more to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch ground nutmeg
- Pinch ground ginger
Blend all the ingredients in a blender and enjoy. If you’re like me, you’ll add a little whipped cream (or Soyatoo) and a straw for a heavenly concoction.
This smoothie has the essence of peach cobbler with plenty of added health benefits. Perfection. I’m now keeping those frozen peaches on hand for those lazy autumn days.
