Here are recipes for two smoothies. Both are fruity and refreshing. More recipes can be found at the Saint Peter’s Better Health Library. The banana, strawberry smoothie with a touch of green was so yummy, according to one of our nutritionists, we’ve decided to feature it again.
Power up that blender!
- 1 cup sliced peaches, fresh, frozen, or canned (drained and rinsed)
- 1 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt 1 cup crushed ice 1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries; reserve six berries for garnish
- Mint leaves (optional), for garnish
Put peaches, yogurt, ice, and all but six raspberries into blender and puree. Serve in tall glasses. Garnish with reserved berries. The smoothie will be thick enough to float them on top. Add fresh mint leaves if you have them.
