Peach Smoothie

I had a wonderful afternoon. A UCLA graduate student contacted me about helping her with her closet yesterday. We met today and I spent 2 hours in her closet teaching her how to put together outfits that look more polished and professional. She was so cute and had some adorable clothes! I forget how much I love my occupation. I had the best time! Hopefully I can get some more business so I can do what I love more often.

One of my favorite breakfasts' is 1/2 peach sliced over cottage cheese drizzled with honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Last summer I ate this every day for over a month. This summer I have not found a good peach. I have tried different stores and varieties and they are all sour, which is frustrurating! I found this recipe and thought if I made my favorite breakfast into a smoothie it would be sweeter, but the sour peach ruined it. I can only imagine that with a sweet peach this will become a new favorite morning treat!

Peach Smoothie
1 ripe peach
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/4 cup milk
2 Tb of honey
1 Tb lemon juice
pinch of salt
pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon

Mix peach, cottage cheese, milk, honey, lemon juice, salt and cinnamon or nutmeg in blender.
Add 1 cup of ice.
Blend until smooth.
Pour into a glass and sprinkle with more nutmeg or cinnamon.
