Sweet summer peaches are a thing of beauty. And adding them to your smoothies is just a brilliant idea for summer. You can buy frozen, peeled peaches at most any grocery store – or you can slice and freeze your own sweet summer peaches. Tip: Buy organic frozen and fresh peaches. Peaches are best when organic – since the pesticides can be quite high on them – especially with their thin fuzzy skin that seems to absorb most anything.
