Smoothies for breakfast...

Our son and I love having smoothies for breakfast!! We don't always have extra fruit around to make them (because we LOVE fruit and usually eat it as soon as I buy it! LOL!). This past week, however, we had two friends give us about a gallon of fresh blueberries and 1/2 a bushel (that's what the box said anyway) of fresh peaches. WOOHOO!!!! I quickly peeled and chopped all the peaches and put them in the freezer as well as the blueberries. They are ready for smoothies, pies, turnovers, ice cream or whatever we feel like putting them on. YUM!!

Saturday, though, we both wanted smoothies for breakfast. Here's the recipe I used for our blueberry peach smoothies (though any type of fruit would work well).

1/2 cup of plain, fat free yogurt
2 cups peaches
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup of water
2 tablespoons of honey (optional- just to add a little more sweetness)

Put it all in your blender, whirl it around until it's all pureed, pour into your glasses and enjoy!!!

Please feel free to share any of your own family's favorite smoothie recipes!!!
