I have to apologize for a serious lack of yummy posts in the past few weeks. I have been busying myself with preparations to visit Ontario in less than two weeks. It’s been almost two years since I’ve visited my family and friends and I can’t be more excited!
What makes this trip extra special is that I’ll be maid of honour and dessert caterer for my friend, Lisa’s wedding. Lots and lots of cupcakes. Three different flavours. Three different cakes. Three different fillings. Three different frostings. And adorable toppers and baking cups to tie them all together. I’m having dreams about cupcakes to say the very least. Don’t worry, I’ll keep you all up to date as the deliciousness unfolds!
For now, let’s switch gears. I thought it was fate when I saw these Ontario peaches at the store begging me to buy them. It seemed only right that I get a little Ontario preview and share it with all of you. There’s nothing better than a fresh Ontario peach, fuzzy and bursting with bright flavour.
I’ve been on such a peach kick lately. Peaches in my yogurt, peaches in my hand, peaches and whipped cream, peach smoothies, peaches in my mouth. Then suddenly I remembered, oh yeah I have a food blog don’t I? So why not share some of the peachy goodness with all of you?
Here is the first of a few peach installments to come. Honey Peach Smoothies!
Honey Peach Smoothie
Makes 1 large or 2 small smoothies.
2 peaches, peeled and sliced
5 ice cubes
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup plain whole milk yogurt
2 tbsp honey
Mix all the ingredients in a blender until the peaches are blended and the ice cubes are reduced to granular pieces. Easy peasy! Pour the smoothie into serving glasses and garnish with a slice of peach. Enjoy!
