_Peach Smoothie._  Frozen peaches flavor a luscious, low-calorie cooler.  It's so thick you drink it through fat straws.  But instead of adding ice cream, you let blender whip crushed ice, nonfat dry milk into a smooth treat.

   _Peach Smoothie_
_So thick you'll think it's made with ice cream--_
1/2 12-ounce package frozen peaches
1/2 cup cold water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons nonfat dry milk
1 cup crushed ice
   Cut package of frozen peaches in two.  Thaw one half slightly and break it apart.  Place water, lemon juice, and nonfat dry milk in the blender.  Turn it on and gradually add small chunks of frozen peaches and the crushed ice.  Blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.  Makes 2 1/2 cups.  Use remaining frozen peaches for a second batch of these milk shakes.
