Spring is here and soon it will be summer… and bathing suit season. For me that means I need to start hitting the gym and making healthy food choices, which can be challenging for a food blogger. One big change I am making to my daily routine is to add a morning smoothie with Stonyfield Greek yogurt.
While kale based green smoothies are all the rage, I need to vary the flavors throughout the week to prevent getting bored. My new favorite is a Mango Peach Smoothie. Using only 5 ingredients, I can prepare it in my Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender in less than 2 minutes, release the jar with attached travel lid and start my day. The travel jar even fits in the cup holder of my car!
It is convenient, easy to clean and takes up little space in my kitchen. In addition to smoothies, I can easily whip up salad dressings, sauces and even beat eggs.
- 2 cups mango fresh or jarred in its own juice and drained, chopped
- 1 cup peaches fresh or jarred in its own juice and drained, chopped
- 8 ounces plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- Handful of ice
- Strawberry for garnish optional
Place all ingredients except the strawberry in the blender. Puree for 1 minute, remove the jar and enjoy!
To add even more flavor and protein, try using almond milk or blend in a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
