It has been a pretty fruit filled week. We visited our favorite produce market and found the mother-load of peaches. Their was an over-ripe box of locally peaches grown in nearby Yakima, Washington sitting in the corner of the store on discount. 20 pounds for only $10.00! Score!
We spent close to an hour washing, cutting, and freezing the peaches, and then filling four half gallon freezer bags. Needless to say we will not be running out of peaches anytime soon.
Over-ripe fruit finds are perfect for the freezer. Right now, you will find in our freezer an assortment of bananas, honeydew, peaches, blackberries and strawberries. plus whatever else I can wrench in amongst the fruit. Oh, how I would love a chest freezer one day! Pick three of these fruits, blend them together and in 3 minutes you have a perfectly sweet smoothie.
Frozen bananas are my favorite frozen fruit to keep on hand. Not only do they go with almost anything, but they add a creaminess and an extra sweetness as well. Pair that with peaches, honeydew and mint and you have s very refreshing smoothie.
