This non-dairy Peaches and Cream Green Smoothie is a favorite in our family because its not only a healthy meal, but it tastes oh-so-good.
I figured I’ve posted enough naught game day treats lately that its time I post something healthy. We love smoothies in our house and my kids aren’t scared away by the green color because they always tasts so good. If you have family members who are turned off by the green color, you can always trick them by making a not-so-green green smoothie, which tastes equally good but is a pleasant pink.
Yeah, I think my Blentec says we’ve made close to 900 smoothies (or soups or sauces) in its lifetime. I wonder how many times I can use it before it finally yells “leave me alone and go eat at a restaurant, for crying out loud!”. Writing out a smoothie recipe doesn’t exactly come natural to me because its the one thing that I prepare that I’ve never used a recipe as guidance. I just throw whatever I feel like in the blender and hope that it tastes good. Most of the time they taste wonderful, but there are times (ahem, like when I thought celery would be a good addition) when they don’t. Every year I look forward to Oregon’s summer bounty and I freeze as much fruit as my deep freezer will hold. That way I can always whip up a healthy smoothie to get those necessary nutrients my body needs. You’ll love this smoothie… and don’t worry – if you don’t have the exact same fruit on hand that I used because you don’t live in Southern California where everything is always in season, or you’re not a super freak like me and have the equivalent of an orchard of fruit frozen in your garage, then you can easily substitute with other fruits that are either in season or readily available in the freezer section of your grocery store.
