Healthy Peach Smoothie Recipe

I love peaches but I can do without the sticky mess they make with all that juice dripping. So a perfect way to indulge in my peach cravings is with a peach smoothie. This recipe is so healthy (imagine fiber, potassium, vitamins, antioxidants, omega-3s, protein and carbs,) you are going to smile as you drink it-I think. (smiles are not guaranteed--no money back or anything like that. just to be clear.)

Healthy Peach Smoothie

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon toasted ground flax

1/2 cup nonfat plain or vanilla yogurt

3 small peaches, pits removed and sliced (you can use frozen)

1 banana, broken into chunks

1/2 cup blueberries (you can use frozen)

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Put all ingredients into a blender—almond milk on the bottom—and whiz until smooth.

More Summer Fun: 5 Books To Read With Your Preschooler This Summer

I listed a few ideas for summer fun (and a few minor remarks about my gray hair--which a reader pointed out is probably actually white hair. But I digress.) in an earlier post. So in keeping with the theme of things you can do with your kids this summer, I wanted to share 5 awesome books to read with your preschooler/toddler this summer. These are my favs from a list of eight books I found on Babble.com

About Kids and Summer-- And Gray Hair.

Summer time and kids. I have a true love/hate relationship with my kids summer. I get so excited at the thought of lazy mornings, no lunches to pack, no last minute homework mishaps to deal with, and no carpool. I always envision how happy I will be to spend leisurely fun days with my kids enjoying having them home with me instead of away at school all day.
