My kids went back to school yesterday. I seriously can’t believe our summer break is officially over…though our summer surely isn’t. It’s still hotter than heck and not much is changing for a while other than our schedule.
One of the best parts of summer, other than the obviously fun activities that come along with it, is definitely the fruit. You can’t beat summer fruit. Especially peaches. Gosh, do I love peaches. My favorite are the ones that come from Georgia and the Carolinas…those are the ones I look for around this time of year, they smell so darn good. I love popping one in the fridge to chill for a couple of hours then slicing it up into a glass of red wine…that’s my grandpa’s version of dessert…and that’s another post for another day.
My kids and I have been playing with our new Blendtec the last few weeks. We are blending up everything in sight. One hot afternoon, my daughter and I made this juice. Just like most 4 year old girls, my daughter loves anything pink. When asked what ice cream flavor or smoothie flavor she wants, her response is always “pink”. Not strawberry, but pink.
This juice is delicious. I call it juice because it’s made from pure fruit and that’s what I think juice should be made of, but it’s a little thick with the texture of a fruit smoothie. Whatever you want to call it, it’s yummy and really good for you. Mine blended up very easily in the Blendtec. If you are going to try it in a regular blender I would recommend defrosting the frozen berries first and adding a couple of ice cubes to it. I’ve made this two times now, once using frozen raspberries and 1/4 cup of apple juice and another time using frozen blueberries and 1/4 cup water. Both versions were delish and I will probably opt to not use the juice and just stick with water next time.
Don’t forget to enter to win a Blendtec here. Giveaway ends Friday August 20 at noon (EST).

Looks so light and refreshing and what a cutie your daughter is!
I just drank one while I wrote the post and it really was so refreshing! Thank you 🙂
Looks so good, Aggie! I can’t believe it too…I meant to text you yesterday to see how the first day went. 🙂
Looks. Amazing. WANT!
your little girl is adorable and yes, pink juice is totally my thing as well! 🙂
I agree! GA and SC peaches are the best! Your daughter is so cute- love her dress! And what a fun drink!
your daughter is so precious!
Yum! This looks fabulous, and yoour dau g hter is beautifu7l !
That was my 11 month old “helping” me type.
It should read: Your daughter is beautiful 🙂
Enjoy your Blendtec! I have one and I use it every single day. Btw, juices like this one make great, healthy ice pops for the kids – just pour into a pop mold and freeze. So much healthier than the sugar filled pops from the supermarket!
What a GREAT idea to turn them into ice pops!!
simple deliciousness, no wonder she’s smiling. GREG
This is the way juice should be….pure. Looks so refreshing. And Gina looks like she was really enjoying her pink drink.
She is a doll. This sounds so good!
Your daughter is so cute – so glad she loves your fruit juices. I love blending fresh fruits and frozen fruits into smoothies for breakfast, especially when it’s hot out. Can’t believe school’s already in session there – we still have another week and a half. Summer just flew by!
I can’t wait to try…looks and sounds delicious!
Yum! What a perfect breakfast!
Funny to read your post just as I’ve finished writing one about my guy’s first day of school (I’m posting it tomorrow). I can’t believe the summer is over! I also can’t believe that you put sliced peaches in *red* wine. I’ve never tried that. I always do a summer sangria with peaches steeped over night in white wine (then maybe a drip or two of peach liqueur). But I’ve never done them with red. Can’t wait to try it!
Your daughter is adorable. Just had to say that. 🙂
Aggie….I love peaches too! We’ve been going through a lot of them here. Can’t believe your kids are back in school already…but they start down here next week. Just boggles my mind because I grew up starting after labor day. It’s only mid-August!! 🙂
I’ve been wanting to make some sangria so I love your grandpa’s idea of just slicing them up and putting them in red wine! I did that a few years ago with white wine. I took a container of sliced peaces with a little white wine poured over them to the beach. It was SO refreshing. My BFF and I shared them as we watched our kids run around. Good times!!
Pure fruit all the way! thank goodness for our BlendTecs huh!
Your daughter is precious!
Aggie, this looks so refreshing and perfect for this heatwave we’re having!
I love peaches! This “juice” looks so delicious…and glad your daughter could help in the process!
Your daughter has very good taste-this looks very refreshingly pink!
Sounds fantastic! We’ll have to try this one with this year’s peaches.
WOW I love the idea of this juice because I too am a big fan of peaches! The color is totally amazing, your daughter has good taste. 😉
Oh, that looks absolutely delicious. I don’t have any fresh berries on hand, but I do have frozen peaches and raspberries. I think I’ll give it a try!
Yum! Peaches and berries together are one of my favorite combos. It was in the low 100s today; I wish I had something like this earlier. I love that your daughter requests pink food; too adorable.
Love this post! I want a Blendtec!! Such a yummy juice/smoothie 🙂
