This is a peach-flavored smoothie recipe I put together a few months ago, and with spring in the air – at least here in Western North Carolina! – I thought it would make a good post this week.  Sure, it’ll be a while before fresh peaches are in season here, but it’s easy to find the frozen variety right now.

Which makes for a nice taste of summer!

I’m working on a collection of amped-up “Superhero Smoothies,” which will be compiled into an e-book before too long.  All of these will incorporate some herb combinations along with the fruit, milk/water, protein, fiber and avocado (or bananas, for those whose blood sugar will tolerate them).

The Divine Dragon doesn’t care for bananas, so avocado works better for us.  It gives a fabulous consistency to our smoothies, almost like custard some days!  For a thinner consistency, you can increase the water/milk content.

Admittedly, I kind of like beating the mixture down with the Vitamix’s tamper – it has the added benefit of reducing stress.

This version includes ginger, cinnamon and vanilla for their flavors, but with the added benefit of a digestive boost from the ginger and improved blood sugar regulation from the cinnamon.
