Peach-Raspberry Smoothie

P is really into smoothies. Often, he gets cravings and it's a mad dash to a Jamba Juice or Smoothie King. Today, he said he wanted a smoothie and I figured I'd just go make one really quickly, as I don't want him to fill up on smoothies before we have steak for dinner. I rummaged around the freezer to see what kind of frozen fruit was lurking in there, and found peaches. The people at Simply Orange decided to make full sized bottles of their amazing raspberry lemonade, so we picked up a couple bottles earlier today. Seemed like a good combination. It was beyond simple to make, and P now wears a perfectly contented look on his face. Hope you enjoy!

1/2 - 3/4 cup frozen peaches
1/2 - 3/4 cup ice cubes
approximately 1 cup raspberry lemonade

Put the ice and peaches in a blender. Adding a little bit of juice at a time, blend until it's the right consistency. Serves 1-2.
