Scale

Ingredients

2 White Peaches, sliced & frozen

1 Banana, frozen

1 cup Pomegranate Juice (may substitute Apple or Orange juice)

1/2 cup Strawberries, frozen

1/2 cup Plain Greek Yogurt

Dollop of Honey (optional)


Instructions

  2. Blend until smooth
  3. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

We love using frozen fruit to make our smoothies smooth & creamy. To freeze peaches, slice peaches (as many as you wish to freeze) onto a baking sheet lined with wax or parchment paper. Be careful to place peaches apart from each other, if the peaches are touching they will stick together and will be difficult to break apart. Place sheet into freezer and freeze for 8-12 hours. Store leftover peaches in plastic freezer bags in the freezer. May be stored in the freezer for 2-3 months.
