It’s been forever and a day since I posted a beverage on here. Sorry ’bout that. I mostly drink lemon water or coffee, both of which are hardly blog-able.

But this weekend it was going down.

I have had multiple bags of frozen fruit in their freezer for the past 6 months with no real plans on what to do with them. I guess when you’re a food hoarder like myself this is normal? I’m just going with that excuse anyway. So time after time of opening my freezer drawer, this weekend I figured I should probably put those to use and the perfect way to use up frozen fruit is to stuff them in a smoothie. So I yanked out the bag of peaches and pulled out my favorite spice, cardamom and threw that along with the remaining container of yogurt I had into my ancient blender for a fun and delicious smoothie twist.

Soooo into my fossil of a blender I threw in a cup of ice.

Two cups of frozen peaches… you could also nix the ice and up the peaches to three cups for a super peachy smoothie.

Add in a cup of plain yogurt.

This spring-y smoothie is just peachy. Hahaha no really… it is! I love this smoothie… the peach and honey really do shine through and the dates only add to the sweetness.

    Oh my! This smoothie is calling my name. It looks so delicious I want to make it right now, put my swimmers on and pretend I’m sipping this goodness by the pool. Never mind I don’t have a pool. Or frozen peaches. YUM!

    I bet peaches and cardamom are perfect together, love that you added a few dates.

      Ohhhh Cheri they are! I add cardamom to pretty much anything peach or nectarine related. Yum!

    I love the combination of flavors in this! I used dates for the first time in a smoothie a few months ago, and just loved it. I went with banana–but this peach, cardamom duo sounds wonderful. Can’t get enough cardamom!

    Love the flavors in this smoothie….especially the peaches and cardamom! I’ve been drinking the same smoothie for the past few weeks….I love it, but it’s time to change it up. Looking forward to adding this one into the mix!

    I have been on SUCH a smoothie kick lately- this is going on the list! Adding yogurt instead of just milk makes it a little more protein-licious as a breakfast, too. So glad you didn’t add kale to it. So glad 🙂

      Ha ha! Sometimes smoothies just need a break from it

    Great idea to sweeten the smoothie with dates. I always have dates kicking around (I’m a fellow food hoarder). YUM!

      Yes! So glad I’m not alone

    I absolutely love the flavor combos here. Dates are such an under rated fruit and tossing them into a smoothie with honey and peaches….? Oh my, I’m in love 😀

    Sounds divine! I adore peaches and dates and together I bet they are amazing. Cardamom is my favorite spice too. 🙂

    It all sounded great, but where you REALLY pulled me in was with the cardamom. What an amazing combination!
