Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Peach Basil Smoothie

Summer has arrived, bringing with it yummy stone fruits.  Some of the fruit in my produce box on Saturday was a bit bruised.  I decided to use it up right away in this delicious smoothie.


 
Peach Basil Smoothie

Fill a blender jar with chunks of fresh peach, a couple of cups of water, and some fresh basil springs.  Liquify, then pour half or more of the mixture into a pitcher.  Add to the blender jar: one banana, one avocado, a cup or two of frozen mixed berries, and a bit more water.  Liquify, then add to the pitcher.  Stir well and enjoy!

  1. Interesting! I love avocados in pretty much everything but wouldn't have thought to add them to the smoothie! Thanks!
