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.
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 mint leaves
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.
