Summer Smoothie

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

Yield: Makes 2 servings

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) wheat germ 
  • 2 peaches, peeled and pitted
  • 2 cups (500 mL)  buttermilk 
  • 1 cup (250 mL) wild or cultivated blueberries 
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) liquid honey 

Directions

1. In a dry heavy-bottomed skillet wiped clean of any lingering oil, over medium heat, toast wheat germ, shaking pan, for 4 to 6 minutes, or until fragrant.

2. Transfer to blender and add peach, buttermilk, blueberries and honey; purée on high speed.

A great start to the morning, this smoothie is redolent of hot summer days.

Notes

To peel the peach, submerge it in boiling water for 10 to 15 seconds to loosen the skin.
