Summertime Very Berry-Peach Smoothie

June 21, 2010
by

I absolutely LOVE frozen smoothies at any time of the year (yes, even winter, strangely enough), but I especially love them in the midst of a hot summer in DC.  This smoothie is packed with protein (Kefir–love this stuff!) and fiber!  There is nothing better than cooling down after a long, hot day in the sun with one of these babies.  Or, better yet, refueling after a long, sweaty workout.  You also can’t beat all the fresh fruit and berries available in the summer season.  Top that off with a little air conditioning, a great book and you’re good to go.

Summertime Very Berry-Peach Smoothie

1.25 cup non-fat or low-fat plain Kefir
3/4 cup frozen mixed berries (I love the ‘Very Berry Cherry Mix’ from Trader Joes!)
1 fresh banana
1 fresh peach
1/4 cup fresh or frozen bluberries
Optional: splash of orange juice

Serves: 2

Directions: Place ingredients in the blender, starting with the liquids and placing more frozen items at the top.  This will ensure that the smoothie blends up easily!  Blend away and enjoy.  Previously frozen banana chunks are another way to ensure a nice, thick texture!

    Hey Caroline, I noticed your comment over at YHL and decided to drop by. 🙂 I am a smoothie addict…I have one every morning. Going to try this one out but with all OJ instead of the yogurt. Yum!

    Peel the peach!!! My fave combo is cantaloupe, raspberries and kiwi (peeled of course).

      I actually didn’t peel the peach and it didn’t make a difference–it probably had more fiber too, which helped make it filling. I normally DO peel though when I eat them by themselves. Thanks for the suggestion and for visiting! That combination sounds delicious.

    I’m baaaaack ….. OK OK I’ll leave the peach skin on! Another good combo is apricots, strawberries and cherry juice which you can freeze into cubes. Very peppy! Gorgeous color too!
