It’s been a pretty hot summer, and I have been on the hunt for healthy postdinner refreshments. This simple shake-for-one did the trick! It takes under 5 minutes to make, and I already had all of the ingredients on hand.
This is the perfect summer dessert: easy to make and very refreshing. Make the most of the peach season, and give this delicious shake a try!
Quick tip: Peel a peach by scoring the bottom, placing it in boiling water for 5 seconds, and then plunging it into ice-cold water for 3 to 5 seconds. The skin will peel away easily.
Spiced Peach Shake
(from page 127 of Cooking Fresh With The Old Farmer’s Almanac)

Place all of the ingredients except the mint in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a tall, chilled glass. Garnish with mint and serve.

All of the ingredients (I used plain yogurt and a little ice instead of frozen yogurt), including fresh mint from my garden!
The final product (it was gone about 10 seconds later)!
