Sunrise Smoothie

On a school day or a busy weekend, I need something quick, easy & healthy that will give me energy to get through the morning. Especially when I have a test at school and two shifts per day at work over the the weekend. We have always been big smoothie fans at my house, probably because we have a fantastic Vitamix a la 1993. Thanks to this resource, as well as our stash of frozen bananas and constant supply of 8+ quarts of local peaches, I was able to whip up a sweet smoothie in a matter of minutes.

This easy smoothie is perfect for people with food allergies - no dairy, no nuts, no soy, no gluten...and it's raw, too. So toast to good health and enjoy one while the peaches are ripe.

SUNRISE SMOOTHIE
This healthy smoothie (190 calories, 0g fat) is a great start to your day. Makes one large smoothie.

  • 1 peach, washed & skin left on
  • 1 frozen banana
  • juice of 1 orange (about ½ cup)
  • a handful of ice cubes (if you want a thinner or colder smoothie)

Pulse in a high-power blender until desired consistency is reached. Enjoy immediately.

Oh, wow, peach banana smoothies are the best! I love making them with soymilk and nut butter. I definitely don't blame you for being a smoothie fan -- I would make them all the time if I had a constant inflow of peaches. Lucky! And your little glass looks so peaceful sitting out, enjoying nature. :)

Yum! You know I've actually never tried peaches in a smoothie before. I know...what am I thinking, right? I love the picture of yours on the wooden ledge - it seems like such a serene way to begin your morning! I will definitely keep this recipe in mind for the future :o)

Natalie...

Tiffany  

This sounds easy to make and delicious.

I really should put my blender to healthier use with something along this lines. It sounds really yummy, and it's definitely healthier than most of the things I put into my mouth.

That's a beautiful cat :)

I just bought peaches today so I will have to try this :) Now I just need to figure out what to do with the rest of them... jam, pie, cobbler?

I love cats and that is one adorable looking cat (reminds me of the cheshire cat from alice in wonderland!)

I am jealous of your juicer!!!

Yum. I really should start my day like this instead of having a protein shake or something.

Núria  

Mmm Katie! I'd drink one smoothie too... with some icecubes, please, this heat is killing me!
