New Year New You: smoothie! The Peachy Keen!

I've got another smoothie recipe for you gals... this is another favorite of mine and it's got a lot of the same ingredients as the last smoothie but mixes in a few new ingredients for a totally different flavor.

Making smoothie ingredients "pantry staples" makes whipping up a smoothie for breakfast, lunch or dinner super easy.  I always have bananas and almond milk (or coconut milk) in the house and then I try to keep a lot of frozen fruits on hand too.  Buying frozen fruit can be cheaper than fresh (especially if you watch the sales) and is a great way to get super fresh fruits all year long. I don't want to buy a peach this time of year - yuck! But a frozen peach that was picked at the height of it's ripeness and saved for whenever you want to eat it - perfect!

This smoothie tastes just like peach pie! Yum!

The Peachy Keen Smoothie:
1 Banana
1/2 of a Peach (preferably frozen slices of peach)
1 Cup of Spinach
1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon
4 Ice Cubes
1 Cub of Almond Milk

Blend and enjoy!

The cinnamon makes this smoothie taste just like peach pie for little to no calories added and is a heart healthy ingredient that is believed to regulate blood sugar, decrease inflammation and aid digestion as well!  This smoothie clocks in at only 234 calories and makes a great breakfast or lunch!

If you are in the market for a new blender… I highly, highly recommend the Breville Hemisphere!  We just LOVE ours!

see you around...
