Buttermilk peach smoothie

July 24, 2012 § 9 Comments

We are nearing August.  The air, thick with fresia, mosquitos, and humidity begs for laziness and simplicity.  I can partially oblige.

Simplicity.  Simplicity often has such beauty to it.  So much can be contained within so little.  Like a haiku.

A haiku:

Peaches, golden orbs

Buttermilk, kissed with maple

Blend until frothy.

This is my current favorite afternoon pick me up or morning kickstart (well, besides coffee).  A light, cool, refreshing, filling, lip-moustaching drink.  The companionship of buttermilk and maple are perfect for making the most of the brief but resplendent local peach season. I don’t even bother to peel the peaches, leaving little flecks of sunset dotting my drink.

And just imagine the possibilities with a scoop or two of ice cream or frozen yogurt in there.

Buttermilk Peach Smoothie (serves 2)

  • 2 ripe peaches, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 1 Tbs. maple syrup, plus more to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups cold buttermilk
  1. Put the peaches in a blender and pulse until they start to turn into a chunky sauce.
  2. Add the syrup and buttermilk and blend until pretty smooth and frothy.  Taste and add more maple syrup, if desired.
  3. Divide between two glasses and serve.
