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.
