Flaxy Peach Milkshake



Truth be told, I don't crave for summers and especially when 80 - 90 deg F weather is thrown at me, a freezing winter season seems like a better option.Though I come from a tropical country, I grew up in 'garden city' of India during pre pollution era (compared to now) and relatively when it was cooler. And so, a 60 - 70 deg F weather sounds perfect and very ideal. When the mercury levels start raising, my patience/energy levels decrease somehow.
This summer has been bad, I should say. The whole nation has been engulfed by heat wave for the past weeks. I have not endured this many 90 deg days in a single summer in Chicagoland as far as I recall. I know it has been worst in the other parts where the relentless heat has been scorching lands causing droughts and setting up new heat records. Some are continuously dealing with three digit numbers. When all that considered, our area seems slightly better. At least each weekly forecast is featuring a few thunderstorms.
A couple of weeks ago, a relative girl who follows my blog had asked me to post some smoothies / shakes recipes. A fair request indeed considering the fact that she lives on the east coast. I could not post earlier because I was tied up with marathon posts and so planning to post at least a couple of them for her, this week.
Deepthi, here you go. This pleasing peach milkshake is for you. For an healthier punch, I added some flax seed meal and that is entirely optional.


Ingredients for 4 generous servings:
4 peaches
2 Tbsp flax seed powder (optional)
2.5 - 3 cups cold milk
Sweetener to taste - (Agave nectar / honey / sugar / any other sugar substitute)

Method:
Peel the peaches and remove the seeds. Blend the prepared fruit, milk, flax seed meal and sweetener to a puree and serve with some crushed ice if desired.
