This is a cool, light and refreshing summer smoothie. Use your own choice of fruit to make your own flavor. Smoothies often contain fruit juice, but I used water to reduce the sugar in this. But how healthy is this smoothie? Peaches are high in potassium, beta carotene, fiber and a good source of Vitamin C. Strawberries are high in antioxidants and there is current research looking into possible anti-inflammatory properties. [Source: healthfood-guide.com]

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium peaches cut into large chunks (I prefer to leave the peel on)
  • 4 or 5 fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 T. lemon juice
  • 1 packet of powdered stevia sweetener (optional)
  • 10 – 12 large ice cubes (more or less as needed)

Intructions:

  • Combine fruit, water lemon juice and sweetener in blender.
  • Puree until fruit is liquefied.
  • Add ice cubes one at a time and blend until ice cubes are crushed and the drink is thick.
