PRICKLY PEARS AND PEACH DRINK WITH MINT – FRULLATO DI FICHI D’INDIA E PESCHE CON MENTA

Prickly Pears

I am doing a couple of heavy hours every morning in our garden in order to clean it of quite a lot of overgrowth, I take a corner a day and dedicate it a couple of hours of serious pruning, cutting and sawing. It is quite a satisfying work actually, I am allowed to go through the garden like a terminator with the added satisfaction of it looking so much better afterwards. How often does that happen in my life? Almost never. But I am not just rambling here, there is a purpose with what I am writing, this is leading up to today’s recipe or rather serving suggestion, all that work in the hot sun does make a girl very thirsty and then a refreshing prickly pear juice and peach drink is just the thing and I can tell you that if it hadn’t been too early in the day and obviously a bit too early for alcoholic drinks, I would have added a dash of rum and I would have slumped down with it to relax on a sun chaise in the shadow of the oak. Next time maybe.
And as it is gluten-free, I add it to my Gluten-free Friday series!

Prickly Pear and Peach Drink

PRICKLY PEARS AND PEACH DRINK WITH MINT – FRULLATO DI FICHI D’INDIA E PESCHE CON MENTA
2-3 glasses

500 ml/ 2,1 cups prickly pears juice. I bought a bag of prickly pears, cut them in halves and then passed them through a sieve in order to separate the liquid from the numerous seeds.
2 mature peaches
200-400 ml/ 1-2 cups ice cubes
4-5 small mint leaves (optional)
a dash of rum (optional)

– Peel the peaches, cut them in pieces and put these in a mixer. Add prickly pear juice and ice cubes, if you feel like it, add mint leaves and rum as well.
– Run until smooth and serve immediately.
