Peach Smoothie and Grilled Cheese Sandwhich $6.79

I have a serious "cheap" problem, and I cant help analysing at all times how much cheaper it would be for me to make something to eat then order it in a resturaunt. There is a certain coffee chain that I will not name, but they make a mean fruit smoothie. I did not buy one, I tried sample, and I will admit it was really good. However, at over $3.00 for a small glass, I could not be swayed. Instead, I was inspired to make my own. Im not certain, but I dont think this particular coffee chain uses fresh fruit, my guess is they use canned or frozen, so I did kinda a combo of each. I wanted my smoothie to have a slushy feel to it, without adding ice, so I put the peaches from the can in a ziplock and froze them over night. The result was a smooth, yet cold and refreshing summer treat!!
