I like smoothies, especially green ones. I made Peachy Keen for the first time yesterday and loved it. I decided to get my husband’s opinion before posting the recipe. though. He’s not a big fan of weird-colored drinks. He’s pretty much just a Strawberry-Banana Smoothie kind of guy.
His first comment was, “It doesn’t taste like it looks.” (In other words, I’m surprised it tastes so great because of the color! ) Then, after a few more gulps, he said, “This is excellent, babe!” If my husband approves, I know you will, too!
Peachy Keen Smoothie
1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (almond, coconut, rice, soy) or water
1 cup sliced fresh or frozen banana, peeled (about 1 medium banana)
1 cup sliced fresh or frozen peaches
1 cup fresh spinach or kale leaves
2 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts (about ½ ounce)
1 tablespoon flaxseed meal, optional
Place all ingredients in a blender, and process until smooth.
Yield: 2 servings (serving size: about 8 ounces or 1 cup)
- If your smoothie is too thick, add a little more non-dairy milk or water.
- Make sure either the banana or peaches are frozen so your smoothie is chilled.
- To freeze bananas, remove peels before placing in freezer. Put in a plastic zip-top bag until completely frozen.
- Flaxseed meal is a powder made from ground flaxseeds. It is high in fiber and a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids.
