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.
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.
