Every time I tell Lori that I’m going to introduce someone new to green smoothies she says, “You’ve got to make them the Peach Spinach one!” If Lori could have it her way, this would be the only green smoothie that she’d drink. I’ve got a lot of favorites, and this one is right up there on the top of the list.
If you’re new to green smoothies or if you want to introduce a friend to how good they can be, consider making them this one. It’s easy, quick and tastes like desert!
- 2 ripe peaches (maybe three)
- 2 Medjool dates
- 1 cup coconut milk
- ½ lb Fresh young baby spinach
- ½ cup rejuvelac (optional)
Add liquids, pit the fruit and add it. Blend for about 10 seconds.
Pack in as much spinach as will fit. I generally recommend ½ lb. Remember, green smoothies are all about getting the greens! Thus, don’t skimp.
Now, use the tamper and blend for another 50-60 seconds until it’s creamy smooth.
I used three fairly large peaches and a little over a cup liquid and I’ve got a fancy glass for the princess and a quart jar for myself. If you cut back to just two peaches, you’ll probably just get a quart of smoothie.
Remember – a quart a day keeps the doctor away!
