Peach and Mint Smoothie

Recipe Information

Total Time: 

10 minutes

Servings: 

2

Ingredients

  • 1 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 12 large spearmint leaves, plus two sprigs
  • 2 large peaches, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Honey (optional)

    Preparation

    1. In a blender, add the yogurt, frozen banana, mint, peach slices and lemon juice, in that order. Blend, using the tamper if you have a high-speed blender, or scraping down and repeating as needed. If you like your smoothies sweet, add a tablespoon of honey and blend.
    2. When creamy, pour into glasses, garnish with mint and serve.

    Serving Suggestion

    This flavorful smoothie can stand on its own for breakfast or a healthy snack. You can also complement it with a bowl of granola or some more fresh fruit—fresh berries and other stone fruit, like cherries and plums, will pair well with the peach flavor.
