California Peaches are available from April through October. Summer is the best time to use the ripe n sweet peaches in a smoothie.. and this year I am loving the Mangoes. We still have not found Indian Mangoes in the store, however, the Mexican ones are just as yummm !
This smoothie was a real experiment. I was not sure if all the flavors would work together.. but they turned out just fine and I am thrilled about that! I have used some fresh apple too in this one, and that kinda changes the consistency of the drink to more viscous. I used ice-cream spoons to scoop it instead. To keep it drinkable, you may want to use apple juice.
Fresh Peaches - 1 to 2, cut in half and seeded, 1/4 chopped finely
Fresh Mango - 1, cut into cubes OR
Tinned Mango Pulp - 1.5 cup
Fresh Apple - 1/2 cut into cubes OR
Apple Juice - 1/2 cup
Plain Yogurt - 2 tbsp
Water as needed
COOKING TIME: 10 minutes
SERVING: Serves 2
1. Cut all the fruits. Peaches in halves, Mango in cubes, Apple in cubes.
2. Put all the fruits into a blender and blend in.
3. Add the yogurt and 1/4 cup water (if needed to adjust consistency), blend again.
4. Pour out the smoothie into beverage glasses.

To Serve -
6. Top it up with cut peaches.
I used Mango as the topping here just because its in season now.
Alternatively, you can blend in the crushed ice into the smoothie. If you are using fruit juices instead of fresh fruits, there will be no need to add water. Feel free to add more yogurt for a thicker smoothie.
