Here I am with another stellar smoothie recipe. This time it’s a peach smoothie which just screams summer. We make a ton of smoothies in this house and I truly enjoy coming up with delicious mixtures to share with my readers.
HOW DO YOU MAKE A PEACH SMOOTHIE?
This smoothie is made with frozen peaches, banana, mango, and fruit juice. Making this healthy peach smoothie is as easy as gathering your ingredients and tossing them into the blender until they’re nice and smooth. Serve immediately and you’re all set with a relaxing drink that’s both easy and extremely satisfying.
I add mango to this smoothie to give it a a tropical twist, however, if you don’t have mango on hand or don’t like it, just omit it. The smoothie will be delicious either way. If you would rather use peach yogurt instead of vanilla yogurt, that’s a great option to amp up the flavor.
I suggest using the peach nectar for your smoothie because it adds such a sweet and concentrated flavor, and really makes this smoothie something special. Peach nectar can be found in cans down the juice aisle or in cartons in the refrigerated drink section. Protein powder is a great addition to a peach smoothie to boost the nutritional value. You can also add a handful of berries like raspberries or strawberries.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF PEACHES?
Peaches contain so many vital nutrients such as vitamins E and K, niacin, folate, iron and more. Peaches are also great for your skin, especially if you struggle with wrinkles. Not to mention, if you are out in the sun a lot, peaches help fight skin damage caused by the sun and pollution.
DOES THE FRUIT HAVE TO BE FROZEN TO MAKE A PEACH SMOOTHIE?
I strongly recommend using frozen fruit in your smoothie. The frozen fruit helps to make your smoothie thick and creamy. Plus, it ensures your drink is nice and cold for a while since summer can be unforgiving when it comes to warming up your drink.
We always have plenty of peaches around this time of the year. That’s why this healthy peach smoothie is always at the top of my list when it comes to a summer breakfast, snack, or refreshing drink.
