An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
Did you over do it this Labor Day weekend?!
If so, let celebrate the end of summer with a truly delicious concoction! If not, let’s still celebrate summer’s end with this delicious concoction!
A dear friend brought over peaches, rum and one of those frozen Lime-aid cans. Delighted by her having brought over peaches, rum and enthusiasm for fun, I hated to eject her Lime-aid from the line up. But with high-fructose corn syrup and numerous radio-active chemicals and dyes, I simply could not let artificial ingredients hijack our fun– especially when I had the REAL ingredients to substitute. ( FYI Limes, ice and honey = a tastier, healthier version of lime-aid.)
She was skeptical, I could tell. Or just thought it was super rude of me to suggest her summer cocktail of choice was somehow deficient. Which it was (rude). But I can confidently say, we both thoroughly enjoyed the new and improved “Peach Fuzz Delight” (we’re calling it)! And by thoroughly I mean, thoroughly.
You ready for the fun?
In a blender combine:
2 large, juicy-ripe peaches, pitted
2 limes, peeled
1 inch of lime rind
3 heaping Tbsp honey
1 cup Rum
1/4 cup H20
3-5 cups of ice (how thick and frosty do you want it?)
