Here’s a recipe for a dairy-free smoothie made with a fresh summer peach, raspberries, coconut milk and a touch of vanilla. If the fruit is ripe there’s no need to add any sweetener.
Fresh Raspberry Peach Smoothie Recipe
2 tablespoons canned coconut milk
1/4 cup cold water
1 medium fresh peach, pitted and sliced
1/2 cup fresh raspberrries
Few drops pure vanilla
1/2 cup ice
Add coconut milk, water, peach, raspberries and vanilla to blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Add ice; cover and blend until smooth. Taste for sweetness. If desired, add natural sweetener to taste.
Makes 1 serving (about 1 1/2 cups total)
Note: I use a heavy duty Vitamix blender, which results in a silky smooth drink. If you have a
wimpy regular blender, you may want to peel the peach.
Tip: Coconut milk adds richness and creaminess to dairy-free smoothies. Leftover coconut milk should be stored in the refrigerator. Transfer the coconut milk to a glass jar with a tight fitting lid.
