When I lived in Italy the locals had a saying:
"What grows together goes together."
I find it to be a great help when I get back from the farmer's market and am trying to let delicious inspiration strike.
That's essentially how I stumbled on this utterly refreshing yet surprising peach smoothie combination - some of summer's best in a glass, really. Using yellow peaches give this smoothie a warmer color than using white peaches.
Other summer stone fruits like apricots and nectarines are also delicious swaps if that's what's growing near you.
Really ripe fruit is the key to this smoothie-you can add a dash of vanilla extract for extra flavor.
