Post Workout Peaches and Cream Smoothie
  • August 12, 2014
  • 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.

    Ingredients:

    • 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

    Directions:

    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.
