Peachy Keen Smoothie

IMG_2742

Summer is coming to an end! That means no more yummy stone fruits as the temperature starts to drop. And after all the labor day eating, BBQ-ing, and more eating, I was really looking for something light and refreshing to start my day today.

Luckily, I had a couple peaches left over from the farmer’s market (probably my last for the year!) so I thought I’d use them up in a smoothie.

My friend Sun created this recipe and let me tell you, it is delicious.

It’s a great way to use up remaining fruit, is super healthy, and takes only 5 minutes (or less) to make. Plus, for anyone who doesn’t like the texture of stone fruits (ahem, the husband), it’s a great way to add these yummy delights into their diet.

The Ingredients

  • 2 peaches (you can also use frozen peaches when summer is over)
  • 1 banana
  • 6-8 frozen mango chunks
  • 2 heaping spoonfuls of nonfat organic Greek yogurt (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed (or regular all-natural) orange juice

All you have to do is cut all of the fruit…

Dump it into a blender, and blend until fully combined!

It’s great as a mid-day snack, as a kid-friendly treat, as a replacement for juice, or even as a quick breakfast.

This recipe makes 2 generous servings, so find someone to share it with!

Hope you all had a great long weekend, and that your week isย peachy keenย ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. wow such a beautiful color…this is exactly what i need after a long weekend eating :-))…i will definitely give it a try…thanks for the recipe

  2. Looks like a tasty treat! I see that you’re using a magic bullet here. I have one of these as well, but when I try to make a smoothie the texture tends to be rather chunky. Do you have any tips for making it smoother with a bullet or do you just blend it for a long time?

    • Thanks Kay! Hmm I just blend it for a long time and it seems to work — so maybe try that? Hope that helps!

    • Aw thank you so much Gretchen – it’s so great to “meet” you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you and your kids loved this recipe as much as I did!!

    • Hi Kim! You can definitely taste the banana in this smoothie. That’s not the only thing you’ll taste – but if you don’t like banana flavor at all in drinks, then you may not like this recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope that helps!
