Smoothie time

NOTHING SAYS SUMMER LIKE A SWEET GINGER AND PEACH SMOOTHIE

This is one of my all-time favorite smoothies. The peaches are so light and cooling, and the extra snap of the fresh ginger is just delicious. I like to use either the frozen cubed ginger if I’m in a hurry or grate my own. A good trick for extending the life of any remaining ginger root is to just put it in the freezer. When you are ready to use it just pull it out of the freezer and grate it up.

PEACHY GINGER SMOOTHIE

INGREDIENTS


3 cups of frozen sliced peaches
2 cups of frozen Spinach
1 frozen ripe banana in chunks
4 Tsp freshly grated ginger
2 cups of plant or nut milk (add more for a thinner consistency)
1 Tbs chia seeds
½ Tsp vanilla

I love my Vitamix!

INSTRUCTIONS


If you have a Vita-Mix® or a NutriBullet® those are ideal for making smoothies, but you can use any blender you like. Mix all ingredients together and blend on high for about 30 seconds or until everything is chopped up and a nice consistency. Using one cup of oat milk (or any other plant or nut milk) it is up to you meaning you can use more/less of that liquid based upon the consistency desired. So, in summary, add your liquid last and do a taste test during the processing.

I WENT TO THE GARDEN FOR THE GARNISH, LEMON BALM AND DIANTHUS.
