After a long weekend with girlfriends in Nashville, also known as my bachelorette party. I woke up craving lots and lots of water and a peaches and cream smoothie.
And so with a little patience, I cut up a banana and a peach, put those slices in the freezer and went back to bed. What came out of the blender when I pulled my life back together was nothing short of miraculous. It tasted like my favorite peaches and cream ice cream – exactly the craving I was trying to beat.
And if you’re running or doing any kind of endurance activity, a smoothie like this can help breathe some life back into you post-workout.
- 1 peach
- 1 banana
- 1 cup skim milk (if you don’t drink milk, you can sub out the milk and the yogurt for 1 1/4 cup almond milk)
- 1/4 cup Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 of a lime juiced
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 TBS agave nectar
1. Cut your banana and your peach into slices and freeze from anywhere from 2 hours to overnight. I froze overnight, making it easy to just put this smoothie together in the morning.
2. Put all ingredients into your blender. Blend into a frothy, peachy oblivion.
3: Enjoy post-workout to get a burst of protein
