Recipe ReDux Post # 72 Stone Fruit Smoothie

The Recipe ReDux for June is "Super Stone Fruit" where we were encouraged to develop recipes incorporating stone fruits like peaches, plums, apricots and plums. I happened to have a bunch of peaches and plums on hand, since they are family favorites, so this was a perfect time to create a recipe using them.  It's been so hot here in Los Angeles that a smoothie seemed in order and I had never tried these fruits in one so I was interested to see how it would come out. I started with an easy base of vanilla Greek yogurt, added plum, peaches and a little almond milk as well. To increase the healthy fat and protein I threw in some almond butter too.  It came out delicious- tangy, sweet and refreshing. Its a great alternative for breakfast, a snack or dessert!  I hope you will give it a try along with all the other stone fruit creations made by the recipe redux group.


1/2 cup chopped plums
1/2 cup chopped peaches
6 ounces of vanilla Greek yogurt
1/2 cup milk (I used vanilla unsweetened almond milk)
1 tablespoon almond butter


Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed for a minute until a smooth consistency is reached.

Makes one serving
