Here’s the thing. I’m not a big fruit eater.

I try to be, I really, really, do.  But given the choice between an apple and a chocolate chip cookie…well, sorry, it’s cookie all the way.

Or pie.

Last week, we had a drop in temperature here, at least for the short-term.  We had one day in the mid 60’s…with some light rain.  It felt heavenly after the summer of insanely high temperatures we’ve had here over the past three months.   It was cool enough that I actually had to get out a pair of jeans…jeans that felt just a little bit snug when I buttoned them.

This is what happens when you spend the summer “sampling” things like Almond Joy Blondies and Biscoff Cheeseballs.


So, I decided it was time for action.  More fruit, less sugar.

My problem is that I can’t give up the sweet stuff.  It’s ugly when I try, folks.

This smoothie is the best of both worlds…a drink that tastes like pie, but with lots of fruit.


Peach Pie Smoothie
Make this smoothie for a peach pie in liquid form; makes about 16 ounces.
  • 1½ cups diced peaches, frozen
  • ½ banana, frozen
  • ½ cup peach yogurt (I used Chobani)
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 packets Sweet 'N Low
  • 1 graham cracker
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy. Garnish with additional peaches, graham cracker crumbs, and cinnamon.
