Fruit Smoothies

I love yogurt.  Fruit yogurt, plain  yogurt, greek yogurt. Any kind of yogurt. So, when it comes to smoothies, I plop it in.

My family, however, is anti-yogurt.  They will not drink a smoothie.  Until now....

Peach-Orange-Strawberry Smoothies


Ingredients: 

2 cups milk
1 cup frozen peaches
1 cup frozen strawberries
12 oz OJ concentrate (I used this frozen as well)
1/4 cup powder sugar
2tsp vanilla extract
10-12 cubes of ice

Combine everything except the ice in a blender.   Blend until smooth.  If needed for extra thickness, add the ice cubes.  You might find that they aren't needed.  

Pour into chilled glasses.

Enjoy. 




Edited to add: Kolby loved these so much, he had the leftovers for breakfast!


I concocted this recipe for a linky party that I didn't get signed up for in time.  But, you can check out all the other smoothie recipes here.

  1. I'm so sorry you missed joining the party :/ I love the idea of adding peaches - they just scream summertime to me! The yogurt - it always amazes me what people think they don't like ... until you hide it from them ;) I hide all kinds of stuff from my kiddos! Hope you have a great weekend. I'm pinning this to try :)

  3. Hi. Found your blog on Naptime Review Blog Hop. Have you ever tried Dates in a smoothie instead of sugar? We use it in our smoothies and they are awesome!
