Peachy Keen.

   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!

    I’m an Ontario girl too and found some yummy Ontario peaches here in Medicine Hat, AB….I almost forgot how amazing they taste! Thanks for the great idea!

    Looks amazing! I just made peach butter with a basket of Ontario peaches, they’re so good this year!

    Great recipe. I am in Eastern Ontario, near Windsor. Kind of an ugly place to live, not the prettiest of Ontario for sure. But man the peaches here rock. As do our tomatoes.

    I’m so glad we got such a good deal on that big case of peaches (million of peaches, peaches for me?) at the store today because I want this drink! Love the pictures love, as usual they are amazing!

    Lovely photographs. I’m on this new whole foods diet and I can eat everything you mentioned so this might just be my breakfast or dessert for the new few days. Thanks! Love your blog! New fan.
