Strawberry Peach Protein Smoothie

Does the title of this post sound familiar to you?  I kind of hope so because that means you’re following me on my blog.  However, in case you don’t remember, I made a delicious Peaches & Cream Smoothie last summer when Colorado Peaches were in season.  I have such good news for you! It’s not quite Colorado peach season but you’re definitely in for a real TREAT!

Summer Peach and Strawberries are a perfect Combo!

I love making smoothies and when I heard about Shaklee’s newest Peach flavor, I couldn’t wait to try it!  The first time I made a smoothie with the new Summer Peach, I followed this recipe (except of course I used the Summer Peach Life Energizing Protein Shake, not Vanilla).  My husband loved it!

However, I recently scored on some delicious fresh organic strawberries at Costco so today…Strawberry Peach Protein Smoothie.  What a TREAT!  I love how you can customize your smoothie of the day to suite your taste buds with all different kinds of flavor combinations. The bonus is you know exactly what is being put in your smoothie when you make them at home. You’re not left wondering if there are some preservatives or other weird additives that may not be so good for you.

Not only is this a healthy option, but it’s super easy too.  Just throw everything in your VitaMix and blend on high till it’s smooth and than you are ready to sip right up!

It’s my go to breakfast every morning after my run and strength workout at the gym.  Just the right amount of protein, carbs, healthy fats and fiber.  Plus the touch of cinnamon adds just the right amount of spice!  In case you haven’t heard, cinnamon is great for inflammation.  When I heard about all the health benefits of cinnamon, I started adding it to all my smoothies.  This gal hopes to be running well into her 80’s.

Its fun to spread the word that you can have vibrant health by having a positive attitude, eating well, exercising and taking Shaklee food supplements.
