Healthy Faves – Banana Peach Smoothie with Chia Seeds

Living in Northern New England, and now in Alaska, I miss a lot of things about the South. I miss Southern Hospitality. . . obviously, I miss my family, but most of all, on a daily basis, I miss the food places I used to frequent – especially Smoothie King. I’d swing by and order a Peace Slice (or sometimes Caribbean Way) with whey protein powder and it was nutritious, delicious, and oh so easy.

So, I made my own delicious recipe for a smoothie that I think I love more than a Smoothie King Peace Slice!

The Recipe:

1 cup frozen peaches (about 6-8 slices)

1/2 a banana (nosh on the other half while you make your smoothie, or appease a toddler with it!)

1/4 cup vanilla flavored (or plain) greek yogurt

1 swirl of honey

1/4 cup frozen mango chunks

1 dash of cinnamon

1 teaspoon chia seeds (or more, if you like!)

milk and/or ice to make your desired consistency (see instructions below)

Instructions:

Place your frozen peaches and banana chunks in a blender or blender bottle with 1/4 cup milk. Blend.

Add yogurt. Blend.

Add mango chunks and blend.

Add and blend ice to reach the desired consistency of your smoothie (or conversely, add milk if you like your smoothies liquidy 1)

Enjoy!
