We love smoothies in our house. I have a Vitamix blender so I make them all the time. They are one of our absolute favorite treats. We always have fresh fruit on hand so I like to get creative. Banana is my go-to ingredient for a creamy texture but sometimes I find the flavor can overpower the other fruits I use. So for this smoothie I used almond butter to achieve some rich, creaminess while also providing some protein. I loved how the almonds and peach flavors complimented each other. Now we make this smoothie all the time, sometimes I add a handful of baby carrots for some extra nutrients.
Smoothies are always more fun when served with cute paper straws. For Jax, that detail is a must.
Peach Almond Smoothie
- 2 large ripe peaches (or nectarines)
- 1 cup vanilla or *unsweetened almond milk
- 1 heaping Tbs almond butter
- 1 Tbs agave nectar *(if using unsweetened almond milk)
- 1 cup ice
- Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
- Serve and enjoy.
P.S. If you don’t already have one I highly recommend investing in a Vitamix. It is our most used and best loved Kitchen appliance and has paid for itself with all the smoothies, iced coffees and milk shakes I make at home. I use it to make salsa, soup, and whip cream too. Love. Love. LOVE our Vitamix. This is not a sponsored post, but I truly think every household should own a Vitamix.
