Here’s another of my favorite ways to start the day. The flavor of fresh ripe peaches tastes like… summer! It may just be my new favorite green smoothie. And I love starting the day off with a healthy serving of greens. I can almost feel this smoothie cleansing and energizing my body as I drink it.
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1 ripe peach, sliced
- 2 small frozen bananas
- 3/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 cup ice cubes
Place spinach, orange juice and water in a blender and blend well until there are no spinach chunks. Add peach, bananas and ice and blend well until all fruit and ice chunks are broken up. Makes 4 small servings or two large ones.
Even my kids love it. It’s another great way to introduce healthy foods to them at an early age. Experts say that one of the ways children form their eating habits is by mimicking what their parents eat. If your children see you enjoying one of these healthy green smoothies each morning, they will want one too.
