what to do with overripe fruit

Farmers are terribly sly, and I'm hopeless at picking fruit. The big box of peaches we brought home from Saturday's farmers market had at least half a dozen that were bruised, smashed, and overripe underneath a layer of perfectly delicious-looking peaches.

Only a few things are more disgusting than mushy fruit. I was mad until I juiced them, added a little plain yogurt, and shook it all up in a mason jar.  Yum: local peach drinkable yogurt! It's a treat with protein and without added sugar.

You old Strawberries, almost-rotten Apricots, Blackberries we forgot were in the fridge, and (coming soon!) past-your-prime Blueberries - come on in! The yogurt's fine.

If you don't have a juicer, you could get the same effect with a blender or food processor. Just remember to remove the pits.
