Peach and Blueberry Smoothie

Smoothie Saturday

Peach n’ Blueberry Bash Smoothie

Today I’m excited to have Charlee from HumbleinaHeartbeat.com here with a wonderfully delicious guest post. Charlee shares anecdotes about lessons she’s learned raising kids, managing the family finances, and taking pictures. You’ll also see plenty of ideas on food and some family-favorite recipes for good measure. She’s sharing a terrific Peach & Blueberry Bash Smoothie as part of our Smoothie Saturday series. Enjoy today’s menu from Charlee.

Happy Saturday Krafts and Kiddos fans! Heather is such a sweetie for letting me share a tasty and inexpensive smoothie with you all today.

My first attempts at “cooking” in the kitchen were at the blender throwing in different combinations of fruits, juices, yogurts, and flavorings. Smoothies are really where my imagination can run wild and I often find wonderful flavors just using on-hand ingredients.

This Peach n’ Blueberry Bash Smoothie is just another one of my creations as of late. Since it’s back-to-school for many families this coming week, I thought it would be perfect to make sure the smoothie can be enjoyed by early risers as well as an afternoon snack with mom. You really can’t beat the price! It’s just $1.77 for 34 oz.!

 Peach n’ Blueberry Bash Smoothie

1 cup apple juice

1/3 cup Honey Greek yogurt

2 fresh peaches, pitted

1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

8 ice cubes (add more or less depending on how cold you like it)

1/4 tsp. vanilla (optional)

1 tsp. honey (optional)

Put the first 5 ingredients in the blender in the order listed. Blend for a good minute and then taste. If you think it needs a little honey or vanilla, add it now. You will probably want to add some honey if the peaches are not sweet enough.

I have a two year old daughter who requests smoothies for snack time almost every day! When I made this, I gave her a small glass with a straw and she gulped it down. I put the tall glass in a freezer safe container to drink later in the week!

      I love that you can use up any fruits you have on hand. It’s ridiculous how much smoothies cost at restaurants, isn’t it?! I hope you had a fab Saturday, Serena!
