This smoothie benefits from peak produce, so get those sweet summer peaches lined up. And why dilute nature’s goodness with ice cubes when you can just freeze the milk in an ice cube tray the night before? The stone fruit flavor is further enhanced by the addition of rehydrated dried apricots, which you can prepare at the same time as the milk ice cubes. Greek yogurt, almond butter and flax seeds gives this a nutritional punch plus an extra boost of protein to keep you full. —Leslie Engel

Place apricots into a small bowl. Cover with warm water and let sit until soft, at least an hour or overnight.
Place all ingredients, including the milk ice cubes and softened apricots, in a blender and puree until smooth.
