Strawberry Peach Smoothie (Healthy Choice)

Wanted to share this while fresh fruit is still available these summer months. 

Since we are smoothie lovers in this house, I love trying a new combo of fruit flavors.
This one from Love Bakes Good Cakes sounded so yummy...I went right to the kitchen to make it.

I had fresh peaches on the counter and  frozen berries on hand.  I love not having to add ice to my smoothies. 

Use flavored or plain Greek yogurt for an added protein boost!
You could also add flax seed meal or oatmeal.  They both get ground up and you don't even know they're there. 

It will not disappoint!  


1 c. strawberries, cleaned (fresh or frozen)
1 large peach, cut in to wedges (fresh or frozen)
1 c. orange juice or (1%) milk(more or less, depending on the consistency you like)
1/2 c. favorite (Greek) yogurt (I used peach)
1 TB. honey or 1 sm. packet sugar or sweetener
1 Tb. flax or chia seeds
(If using fresh fruit, add 4 - 6 ice cubes)
Strawberries or peaches for garnish, optional

Place all of the ingredients in a blender; 'whir' on high until smooth. Garnish with additional strawberries or peaches if desired. SIP SIP HORRAH!....or AWAY! =)
