Why I continued to hold this childhood prejudice against buttermilk I don't know. I love yogurt - the tangy-er the better. I make my own yogurt on the tangy side. Lynn talked me into taking the remainder home and I vowed to use it. This morning I made a buttermilk peach smoothie and I pronounce it... DELICIOUS! Will I buy buttermilk just for smoothies? YES!
I don't use ice in my breakfast smoothies because I think it dilutes the flavors. If all of the ingredients are frosty cold right from the refrigerator, or the fruit is frozen, it's absolutely chilled enough for me.
- The lime and nutmeg were fun but this would be delicious on its own. I'd may even skip the agave syrup the next time.
- 1 medium peach (any sweet juicy fruit will do, about 3/4 to 1 cup total)
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon agave syrup (optional)
- 1 squeeze lime juice (optional)
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
- 1 small pinch kosher salt
- Wash the peach, remove the pit and chop (with peel) into a large dice. If desired, place in a bowl and freeze for 15-30 minutes. Go ahead and stick the serving glass in there as well.
- Add the all of the ingredients to a blender and puree for 1 minute. Serve in a chilled glass.
