Not only were there a lot of bites to taste and bloggers to meet, but, in true Texas fashion, there was a lot of sun and for some reason a lot of wind to go with it! I took my gal-pal Rachel with me as my +1 and we nibbled and mingled until we literally could not stand any more. It was such a pleasant evening out on the rooftop of the Whole Foods Market flagship store in beautiful downtown Austin.
I posted some thoughts and photos on Twitter & Instagram throughout the evening, so if you're not following me already.... what are you waiting for!?
As for the White Peach Berry Smoothie, that was a lunchtime creation on Friday. One of the Bloggers I mingled with at Whole Foods was Sara from GoGingham. She was a workshop leader for "Use it or lose it! A preservation workshop". She tweeted on Friday morning to take your over-ripe fruit and throw it into a smoothie instead of tossing it away. So when I went in search of something for lunch, I saw some white peaches that were nearing their time sitting in my fridge so I decided to use 'em up and have a smoothie for lunch!
It was delicious- I used fresh fruit, frozen fruit, fruit juice, and greek yogurt. I felt full when I had finished it, but I didn't feel weighed down and I definitely made a dent in my 5-a-day!
White Peach Berry Smoothie
1 ripe white peach, skinned or not, your choice
1/2 cup plain 0% greek yogurt
1 cup mixed berry fruit juice- I like BoltHouse Farms Berry Boost
