Peach Crazy

(This is the first in a series of peach recipes on Chai + Cake.)

You know when you have a big tub of ice cream in the freezer and, when there's just a tiny bit left, suddenly nobody wants to eat it anymore? And then it's just sitting there for days...

So today I decided to do some good and make some space in the freezer by using that ice cream to treat myself to a thick fruity milkshake. It wasn't exactly low-calorie but it wasn't all bad either; I did get 2 servings of fruit out of the often elusive 5-a-Day.

Blend together 1 peach, 1 banana, ½ cup of milk and 2 scoops ice cream (I used a scoop each of mango and homemade peach*), pour into a glass and enjoy!

Of course you could use skimmed milk and low-fat yogurt instead of the ice cream for a much healthier smoothie.


*I'll be posting the ice cream recipe in a few days.
