Whole Foods Feasting: Peachy Smoothie

For the third post featuring peaches, I decided to do a simple smoothie. Maybe not so simple, though, with peach, banana, pineapple, and vanilla.

This is great for breakfast or a snack. It's dairy-free (if that matters) and there are not additional sweeteners. This would also make a great tropical cocktail with the addition of rum or vodka. And maybe a garnish and a paper umbrella.

As with the other recipes, I prefer the peaches peeled, but it's up to you.

Peach Smoothie

1 tray of ice
1 banana
1 peach
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1/2 to 1 cup pineapple juice

Put the ice in your blender and blitz until you have very small pieces. Peel the banana, break it into a few chunks, and add it to the blender.

Peel and pit the peach and cut it into a few pieces and add it to the blender.

Add the vanilla extract and salt and blend until smooth.

Add as much pineapple juice as needed to get the consistency you like and blend well.

Serve immediately.
