Peachy Sunrise Smoothie

Peachy Sunrise Smoothie
Recipe by John Taylor of Domus Cafe, Ottawa

A photo of this drink in a magazine blew me away and I needed to try it. Peaches, yogurt, raspberries and a kick makes this a delicious start to a weekend morning.

Makes: 2

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups frozen peaches, sliced and slightly thawed
3/4 cup Greek yogurt, plain
1/2 cup milk
2 oz Peach Schnapps *
1 tablespoon liquid honey
1 oz Framboise (raspberry liquor)*
4 raspberries
4 mint leaves

Directions:
1) Combine peaches, yogurt, milk, peach schnapps and honey in a blender. Add a little more milk if the mixture seems too thick.

2) Divide smoothie between two 12 oz glasses; drizzle Framboise into each glass, dividing evenly (Framboise will sink slowly to the bottom of the glass).

3) Garnish with raspberries and mint leaves. Serve at once.

* Note: You can omit the alcohol in the smoothie by replacing the peach schnapps with pineapple juice or more milk. Raspberry syrup or a raspberry puree can replace the Framboise.

Oooh, a mama smoothie. Yum. On second thought, maybe the kids should have one, too. Nice, quiet morning! he he

Hungry Hippo said...

What about peach nectar to replace the alcohol? (Raspberry nectar would get closer to your recipe, but that I've never seen.)

Dragon said...

Dawnielle: 'Mamma Smoothie', too funny. :)

Hungry: I find peach nectar too sweet for me. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out.
