Get your last rounds of peaches from the local market, grocery store, or tree, and freeze them immediately for continued peach smoothies into fall and winter time. I decided to go for sharing this smoothie recipe on it’s own page for a couple reasons. First, it’s simple/easy/quick (one multi-faceted reason). Second, I had all the ingredients on hand (frozen peaches!! plus spinach that needed a purpose). And finally, I just really love some of these pictures, and I wanted to share them with you. Smoothies are always great for on-the-go mornings, so I want to add a few more to the Project Meal Plan Recipe Index. Check out the Peaches and Green Protein Smoothie (jump to recipe)!
Let’s talk about smoothie bowls for a second. Maybe I’m using my super detective skills, but I’ve caught on to these smoothie bowls. I know what they are. An excuse to pour your smoothie in a bowl, dump a whole bunch of extra yummy stuff on it, and make super pretty artwork. UHM, count me in. Finally, they are no longer just the stuff of my Instagram dreams. Why didn’t anyone teach me this sooner? Thanks guys.
Hopefully it’s okay for me to assume that any thick smoothie base can make your smoothie bowl… But I have to admit, I want to try all those random smoothie add-ins that make it turn turquoise. Spirulina for smoothie experiments please!
I’m very much a believer of smoothies all year round. Smoothies for any season. Smoothies for any weather. They’re just too easy to not keep as a backup whenever you can. Sit and sip, or drink quickly on-the-go. Or, my new personal favorite, fashion a smoothie bowl with any random smoothie add-ins you’ve got around. I’m sure you know the options. I’m preaching to the choir.
So, I feel like if you’ve read this far, you either already love smoothies, or you are related to me. Which means I don’t need to convince you how versatile/delicious they are. But maybe you didn’t know how pretty they could be!
HINT: I used a Nutribullet to make this recipe!Print
