A Midsummer Afternoon’s Snack
Over the weekend I performed some major procrastination (including this post.) It was my monthly I’m-grounded-I-have-4-articles-due-on-Monday weekend. So instead of writing, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen. I’ll be sure to post about my big baking adventure, but my afternoon snack’s success really made me proud.
In the morning I made my weekly trip to the farmers market and picked up peaches, blackberries and yogurt (among millions of other produce). The dairy stand is where it’s at! Oh, and let me make this clear – I hate yogurt. But, and I’m not kidding, tasting so much genuine frozen yogurt prepped me for the real stuff. And, the Keswick Creamery stand offers plenty of samples (!) so I decided to try their version:
Keswick Yogurt- a traditional style yogurt. Made fresh each week. We don’t add any milk powder, sugar or emulsifiers so our yogurt is clean, smooth and tangy.
I’m not sure what any of that really means, but I actually liked it. Now I’m not sure if I could down a whole pint of the shit, but I could add some to a smoothie.
*Flash forward* I’m on the couch, researching this sidewalk event and not one restaurant that I’ve called can give me any details (thanks Alex and El) so I get frustrated and head to the kitchen. I would have liked to make a martini, but instead, I went the smoothie route – in a martini glass.
Blackberry, Peach and Banana Smoothie
Throw in blender: one diced peach, 5 blackberries, one chopped frozen banana, 3-4 spoonfuls of yogurt, 2 splashes of 1% milk – blend. Pour in martini glass. Put in freezer for 10 minutes. Add a dollop of yogurt. If you have a blog and feel the desire to make all of your food picture friendly, create a pretty design. If not, just drink. And pretend it contains vodka.
