There are a few times of the year where two produce seasons overlap. This is one of them. My beloved peaches are still being sold at the farmers market while apple season is starting. This window of opportunity to mix and match produce from different seasons is very small. Here is one smoothie I made to celebrate the overlap of these seasons. The dates provide a nice sweetness which is juxtaposed by the tartness of the Granny Smith apples and lemon.
APPLE PEACH LEMON DATE SMOOTHIE
Makes 24 oz
2 Granny Smith apples
2 Medjool dates
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup water
1. Blend all your ingredients in a high speed blender.
2. Pour your smoothie into a glass and enjoy!
As a side note, I’m traveling the rest of the month (helloooo Portland + Seattle!), so I’m taking the rest of the month off. I’ll be back in September. Follow my travels on @ohmydrifter and @drifterorganics on Instagram (I’ll be doing lots of Instagram stories!) and let me know if you have any recs for either cities!
This Smoothies with Style was inspired by the famous Mondrian painting. When I see a pattern I like, I always think of ways to recreate it in the form of a smoothie. I’ve yet to figure out how to recreate gingham, paisley, chevron, and other more complex patterns, but I’m working on it. #whentheresawilltheresaway.
I found this fabulous dress from Crossroads. It was part of the “To Tommy, From Zooey” collection for Macy‘s a while back and was the perfect thing for me to wear with this smoothie.
