I was thinking of peaches and almonds when I began working on this granola-thickened smoothie, but it ended up tasting more like peach ice cream with a hint of vanilla.

1 large or 1 1/2 medium ripe peaches, white or yellow, pitted (about 6 ounces)

1/3 cup granola

2/3 cup almond milk

1/8 teaspoon almond extract

1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (to taste)

2 teaspoons rose geranium syrup

A few drops of fresh lemon juice (to taste)

3 ice cubes

1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend until frothy, about one minute.

Yield: One serving.
