Peach Mint Frozen Yogurt

standard June 17, 2015 Leave a response

Texas peaches are just about one of the best parts of my summer CSA. Small, yet full of juicy flavor, they remind me of all the fun that needs to be had in the coming months. I tend to forget about peaches, and go straight for the summer berries when I want fruit. Just like I had forgotten all about the joys of spending hours in a pool with friends and adventuring through trails and the smell of charcoal cooking all the veggies. The past summers have been marked by lots of work, moving, and traveling, and not as much slowing down. This summer is thankfully already shaping up to be different.

Peach Mint Frozen Yogurt

Ripe, juicy peaches. Cool, fresh mint. Sweet, creamy yogurt. The best part of summer is refreshing frozen treats made out of ripe, seasonal fruits. Coconut yogurt adds just a hint of coconut but lets the peaches and mint shine in this easy, no cook, summer treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 c fresh peaches, diced
  • 1/2 c plain coconut yogurt
  • 3 T mint leaves
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1 T agave
  • 2 tsp almond milk

Instructions

  1. Blend peaches and yogurt in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  2. Add mint, lime, and agave and blend again until evenly mixed.
  3. If you have an ice cream maker, add mixture and mix according to ice cream maker instructions.
  4. If you don't have an ice cream maker, place mixture in a freezer-safe container and freeze until solid, stirring every hour or so to prevent ice crystals from forming.

Watermelon Mojito Smoothie

standard September 9, 2014 1 response

This week’s recipes were a bit tricky to put together. The number of items that you can blend up in a smoothie get a little interesting, especially when my goal is to get at least two into each recipe. For today’s smoothie, I decided to start a little bold and mix bright, juicy watermelon with bold, intense arugula. Don’t let the green scare you! This is a frosty cool drink on a hot day or after a sweaty workout. The lime and mint balance out the peppery arugula, and the fruit gives it sweetness. A perfect treat for an afternoon pick me up.

Coconut water would also work well here for a little extra hydration. Be generous with the mint and lime if you’re scared of the arugula.
