Here’s a nice healthy recipe for all you peach lovers. It serves well as a fruit snack or desert.

From a nutritive standpoint, peaches are somewhat underrated. Peaches provide a high amount of potassium, a shortage of which leads to a number of health problems. In combination with banana, this smoothie recipe provides plenty of this key mineral.

Peaches are high in antioxidants and phytonutrients. They are a good source of beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A, high in vitamin C, rich in dietary fiber, and studies have even revealed them to be anti-cancerous. And best of all, peaches are delicious, at least in my opinion.

Incorporate some of the add-ons for more nutrition, and possibly turn this smoothie into a Pretty Peachy Green Smoothie by adding some baby spinach into the mix.

I used raw milk in my smoothie and to calculate the nutritional information. Feel free to substitute your preferred milk – almond, coconut, hemp, etc. Enjoy!
