Peach-berry Smoothie

Use your blender or smoothie maker to make this refreshing thick mixed fruits smoothie.  I love the combination of frozen peach slices (peeled, pitted, sliced) and blueberries, tart yet very refreshing.   Let your taste be your guide for sweetness.

1 cup frozen peach slices

1 cup frozen blueberries

2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons regular cream cheese

2 cups whole milk

1 cup ice cubes

Blend all ingredients in blender or smoothie maker until well-mixed, thick and creamy.  Pour into glasses and serve.  (Smoothies are addicting, it won’t be a surprise if you’d be mixing 2 batches for family and friends to enjoy!)
