is H.O.T. outside, and that is a rare thing for me to say, since I am freezing most of the time. Oh, not today.
For the better part of my college years, I worked at a smoothie shop. I had smoothies just about every day for 3 years. Well, it has taken me a little over 3 years to stop dry heaving at the very mention of a smoothie, and there really is nothing better on a day so hot you can’t even chew without feeling like you’re gonna keel over and die of heat exhaustion, so here we have it….Mango Peach Smoothie.
1/2 cup peaches, chopped
2 T. sugar
2 cups ice
2 T. water
1/2 cup mangoes, chopped
1/2 ripe banana
2 scoops, about a cup, blood orange sorbet (I looooooove the Ciao Bella brand, or regular orange sherbet will do.)
1. Mash peaches together with sugar. I use a potato masher. Set aside.
2. Add the ice, water, mangoes, banana, sorbet, and peaches with all their juice to a blender pitcher. Mix everything together until smooth.
Pour everything into your favorite large glass, and add a fun straw, it’s Monday.
Makes about 16oz.
