Yes, I admit it. I am a foodie. I have files of recipes that I have tried and others "waiting in the wings". As part of the kitchen remodel, I decided to purge most of the ones I knew I'd never try and really made a dent in them. But, my "to do" cooking file is getting bigger by the minute as I wait and wait to be able to bake or cook. It's kind of a bucket list in the cooking arena, if you will. I don't have a bunch of cookbooks, surprisingly enough. I create most of my own recipes. On the short list is ginger ice cream, cocoa seared scallops, homemade limoncello, sweet polenta pizza and pumpkin anything!
Until I can have these goodies, I made hubby and I a peach pie smoothie. With one sip of it, last night, the cravings were gone. It's tasted every bit as decadent as a real live peach pie. Well, maybe that's going a bit far, but it was delicious!
Peach Pie Smoothie
In a blender crush 7-8 ice cubes. Peel and core 2 ripe peaches (makes 2, 1-cup servings)). Put them in the blender with the following:
A couple drops of liquid stevia sweetener
a dash of cinnamon
a drizzle of fat free half & half
a drizzle of vanilla
Puree it all for about 10 seconds and voila - peach pie, or something like it. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. Very nice...
