 Greek Yogurt Fruit Smoothie

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Add diced peaches, raspberries, yogurt and water to a food processor or blender and process until pureed.
  • Place a sieve over a large mixing bowl and pour peach raspberry puree into the sieve. Use the back of a large spoon to push the puree around so the liquid falls through the sieve and seeds/skin stay inside the sieve.
  • Discard seeds/skin from the sieve and set mixing bowl with liquid in it aside.
  • Add granulated sugar and 1/2 cup water to a small saucepan and heat over MED heat until sugar dissolves into the water, stirring occasionally. Boil about 3 minutes until liquid has become syrupy. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Add 7 cups water, lemon juice and ice cubes to a large pitcher. Stir to combine. Pour in cooled simple syrup and peach raspberry liquid. Stir to combine again.

  •  Store covered in refrigerator until ready to serve.  Serve chilled with garnishes, if desired
