Peaches

About 2 years ago, I had to remove my long-time peach tree from my backyard.  It had been there for years, but unfortunately I had to remove it because it had a nasty disease (leaf curl).  After I removed it I decided to buy another peach tree and hope for the best.  Unfortunately this new tree never produced any fruit last year.   So today, finally after almost 3 years without any peaches I am now enjoying the fruits of my labour.  This new tree has given me buckets full of peaches that are juicy and sweet.  While I do enjoying peaches as a snack, my favorite way to consume them is as smoothies.  The recipe is very easy, all you need is a mixer (I use the magic bullet):

1. Ripe peaches (peel the skin, cut the peach in pieces, and freeze them in bags)
2. Orange Juice
3. Yogurt
4.  Sugar or honey

Fill the mixing cup or bowl full of frozen peaches, and then add to taste some orange juice, yogurt and sugar.  The end result is something so delicious it will make you look forward to the end of summer every year.
