MI Peach Smoothies – NEW Recipes

Juicy, Michigan peaches are great in smoothies! They work well fresh or frozen. To freeze them for later, cut the peach into pieces and lay them on a cookie sheet in the freezer. When the pieces are frozen put them into freezer containers for year-round use. Below are three peach smoothie recipes. Also, I’ve included instructions for how I make my vegan, almond yogurt. It’s pretty thin, which makes it really drinkable in a smoothie.

Michigan Peach with Ginger

8 ounces of filtered water
1/8 cup sunflower seeds (with above makes a sunflower milk)
3 peaches
1 kale leaf

Michigan Peach Lassi
Lassi is a yogurt-based beverage often found in Indian restaurants. I’ve created my own recipe using my own almond milk yogurt. The almond milk yogurt and lassi recipes are below. But first, the lassi!

To make MI peach lassi, blend together the following:
2 cups plain yogurt
2 cups MI peaches, fresh or frozen
2 Tablespoons MI honey or other sweetener (or to taste)
2 teaspoons ground cardamom, or to taste

To make almond milk yogurt follow these steps:
1. Soak 2 cups raw almonds overnight.
2. Rinse and drain the almonds
3. Put almonds, 5 medjool dates, and 3 cups of filtered water into a high-speed blender and blend until milky.
4. Strain it through a cloth nut-bag. It will yield 3 – 4 cups.
5. Divide into two one-quart mason jars.
6. Stir in 1 /2 teaspoon of probiotic powder into each jar. (I use Garden of Life  RAW Probiotics Kids.)
7. Cover the jars with cheesecloth and secure with a canning band.
8. Ferment in a place that’s 95 degrees (a dehydrator works well) for 18 – 20 hours.
9. Stop the fermentation when the yogurt is a sour as you like within the timeframe. Keep the yogurt refrigerated.
