|Peach Smoothie @pixabay|
This is my absolute favourite green smoothie in a long time. If you are new to the 'green' in a green smoothie, you might be surprised by the ingredients... but keep your mind open... I think you'll be surprised! It's fair to preface the recipe with a few other ideosyncratic details of my own: I freeze all my fresh fruit and berries and then I don't have to use ice cubes. Sometimes I will throw in unfrozen, fresh off the vine fruits, but quite often not. The peaches in this recipe were peeled by hand (they were that ripe) and sliced and put into a medium freezer baggie (I also really like to use mason jars in the freezer, but more for berries). I hack about 1/8 of the resulting block off-- maybe a couple of peaches. We'll go with that.
All smoothie recipes have a "you-decide" quality-- you can decide if you want more or less or different ingredients!
- 2 peaches, cut in sections (no pit)
- 4-6 ribs of celery, including leaves
- 2-3 frozen bananas
- 1 coconut, water and meat (or a small container of coconut water from the store)
- Water to the top of the blender container, or as much as you wish
Whirl up to heavenly smoothness. Drink. Enjoy!
