Peaches and Cream - Pure Fruit

Starting the day with a fresh fruit smoothie is worth the effort, especially when it's as delicious and healthy as this 99% fruit-based bowl of creamy goodness. Peaches are delicious with cream, but cream, or even non-dairy alternatives like coconut or almond milk, tends, in my opinion to cut the pure, clean freshness of raw fruit on the morning belly. So I decided to try this banana alternative. It's almost 100% fruit, but with just a splash of vanilla to make it extra yummy. And it's super simple.

Pure Fruit Peaches and Cream

1 frozen banana, sliced into 1" chunks
1 fresh peach, halved and sliced
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup cold water

Place frozen banana, half of the sliced peach, vanilla, and water into blender jar and puree till smooth. Dump mixture into a small (cereal) bowl. Top with remaining half of  fresh peach cut into bite size chunks. Eat with a spoon. (And don't try being fancy and adding berries or cinnamon or that kind of stuff - it won't be right.)

It's peach ice cream for breakfast. Enjoy!
