I have never been much of a smoothie drinker. Can’t really say I am partial to ice cream or yogurt either. It must be something about the consistency that gets to me. I can eat a little bit of it and then I’m pretty much over it in about 2 or 3 minutes. One of the things I really do like about smoothies are their convienience. I can whip up a sweet fruit concoction in less than 5 minutes and be out the door and on my way to work, smoothie in hand. There is no sitting down or utensils (well, maybe a straw) required. Just sip and go! I also love the ability to blend different flavors. Fruit and tree nuts are soooo good for you, and this is a perfect way to get your vitamins, protein and energy all in one glass.
So it order to make smoothies appealing, I tend to be very critical of how I put them together, what they are made of, and what I drink them in. Martini glasses are always fun if you aren’t heading anywhere, and a straw is a must!
Here is one of my favorite quick smoothies that only has 4 ingredients, and it very filling:
What you need:
1 peach, pit removed
1 cup coconut water
Blender, Ninja or Magic bullet
Blend all ingredients for 2 min. Pour into glass and Enjoy! It’s really that sinple and delicious. I will make this in the morning and put it in the fridge for a midmorning snack sometimes too. It is great room temp or cold. If you want it cold immediately, add a few pieces of ice in the blending process. You won’t be disappointed!
