On the way back from the beach we stopped in South Carolina and bought the most AMAZING peaches. Seriously, these things are as big as softballs. Yesterday I made a banana peach smoothie and wanted to share the recipe with you.
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 frozen peach
- Non-fat vanilla yogurt
- Splash of light vanilla soy (if needed)
- Chia seeds on top
Here are some things I learned:
* I always cut my bananas in small pieces when freezing, but didn’t do that with the peaches. Lesson learned – cut the peaches into smaller bites as well before freezing.
* Don’t put all the frozen fruit in the blender at once. Add a little at a time. I probably wouldn’t have needed the soy milk if I had cut the peaches into smaller bites AND had added a little fruit at a time. Thankfully we have an industrial grade blender and it could handle all the frozen fruit.
* The smoothie is missing protein. Next time (probably tomorrow), I will add either a scoop of protein powder or a spoonful of peanut butter.
What’s your favorite smoothie? What’s your favorite fruit?
Have a healthy day!
