Peaches are one of my favorite fruits. Mid-summer when stone fruits are in season my eyes light up at the grocery store like some would walking into the shoe section of their favorite department store. I stock up and freeze to use all winter, or you can buy bagged frozen fruit anytime of the year. I made this smoothie after finding Barlean’s Mango Peach Omega Swirl, which is high in Vitamin D, E and Omega’s. In the winter month’s vitamin D is especially important to beat the winter blues. I knew I had frozen mango and peaches on hand. I just added a banana for texture. You could also use avocado in place of banana. This smoothie is simple, quick, loaded with vitamins, and a peachy flavor. Yummy!
Happy Smoothie Saturday!
