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! =)

Yield: 2 servings


  1. Mmmmm...what a great flavor combination!

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Marsha! I really need to get back into the smoothie habit - and try it with some oatmeal or flax seeds like you suggested! Have a great holiday weekend!

  3. I'm not much of a smoothie girl (so much for sisters in taste-lol!), which is soooo weird because I love any kind of non-thick drink that has some flavor, especially sweet drinks. You'd think I'd love smoothies and milk shakes too, but I don't! However, this does sound so good, and I do like that you can make them so healthy and they still taste so good. BTW I love your cute straws! Where did you get them?

  4. Yes Veronica, it's hard to imagine you don't love smoothies as much as I do...since we are Sisters of the Taste Buds. =) The straws came from Pick Your Plum.

  5. This sounds delicious! I love Smoothies!

    Im going to save this on my "Beverage" board on Pinterest, so that I can make it one day soon.

  6. This sounds so incredibly refreshing! I have both in the house right now and it will be our Saturday evening snack tonight!

  7. Over from Sunflower Supper Club. This looks yummy! I'm a recent smoothie convert and the peach & strawberry combo sounds like the perfect summer treat! I add unflavored whey protein to my smoothies for a boost.
