Vanilla, Plum, and Buttermilk Smoothie

We poached ripe plums with a vanilla bean, then pureed them with buttermilk and ice for a rich, tangy treat for breakfast or anytime.

    Well if I were to rate this I would have to give it an F, obviously there are no negative ratings. I can't imagine why they would post a BREAKFAST smoothie that requires 4 cups of sugar, regardless if weather or not it is for poaching.

    If I am reading the recipe correctly, the sugar is added to the poaching liquid, which is discarded after the plums have been poached. This probably keeps the plums' sugar from leaching into the poaching liquid, keeping them nice and naturally sweet. If you can find ripe plums, I can't imagine any additional sweetener would be necessary, but I will use organic sugar all the same for poaching. This sounds delicious!

    I agree with Linda. A tablespoon of agave would do it 4 me. but sounds interesting. I might try it with a few tweeks
