Banana, Strawberry, Peach Smoothie

Banana Strawberry Peach Smoothie Recipe

This is my new favorite smoothie!  The boys and I usually having a smoothie with lunch and this has been a hit for the past few weeks.  I will say that it tastes different each time, probably depending on how ripe and sweet the peach is…and of course, how much sweetener is added!  I find that the ripest (softest…without being bruised and damaged) peaches make the best tasting smoothies!!!

    Hey Erin!!

    That smoothie recipe looks amazing, I can never seem to get enough smoothies! I’m actually working on the launch of the all-new Chiquita™ Smoothies right now which I thought you might be interested in…they are all-natural and chock full of vitamin C. Although the best part may be the price; each can serves at least four which means that each glass of smoothie costs less than $1!!

    I also just wanted to give you a heads-up about the Tropical Smooth-stakes (sweepstakes) we’re running (until the 31st!) to win a trip to Jamaica!

    There’s also a coupon as well as some great smoothie recipes on the site that you might like to try (you might like the Strawberry Soy Power smoothie or the Island Paradise smoothie) – check it out at http://www.chiquitasmoothie.com/ and let me know what you think!

    I noticed you add flaxseed to a lot of smoothies. What does this do for think drink? I’ve never purchased it before, but I’ve seen it. Does it add flavor? Nutrients only? This recipe sounds DELICIOUS but I hate to go out and buy flaxseed just for this drink. Thanks!

      I add flaxseed for the nutrients…flaxseed is loaded with Omega-3s. I have used it in many recipes and in many baked goods. It doesn’t alter the taste in any way! I add a Tbsp here and there in smoothies and baked goods!

    We love smoothies at our house too. My kids drink way too much juice. To curb this and make sure they are getting fruits, we make strawberry-blueberry smoothies. I never thought of adding ground flax seed so I’ll have to try that.

    Oh this sounds really good! I made smoothies last week, and instead of water and milk used rice milk and a splash of Sunny D. It gave it sweetness, and was super thick (almost like soft serve ice cream!) It was delicious though!

    We make smoothies just about every day here. We’ve gotten to the point where I very rarely put any kind of sweetener in a smoothie. Bananas are enough to make it plenty sweet as long as they are nice and ripe. I slowly over time cut back on the sweetener so it was a gradual process. I wish my cost was as low as yours but we only use almond milk (runs about 50 cents a cup although I just use about a cup and add water like you do).

    Yum! I love smoothies too and it;s fun to try what others come up with. I see that you use rice ‘milk”, which is funny because I met another flight attendant this past week that cannot bring herself to drink anything “milk”. I had to tell her how rice milk and almond milk is made and promise that it’s NOT actually milk. Too funny. I think she may try it and some serious convincing.

    Thanks for the new smoothie. Can’t wait to try it.

    Banana berry smoothies are a great treat at our house. Sometimes for a breakfast meal I add a few teaspoons of powdered oatmeal to thicken the smoothie. With that in the morning, it keeps me going until lunch time Especially if its going to be a busy day.

    We just made this at our house and everyone participated–great to teach the kids measuring and following a recipe plus the satisfaction of drinking your very own creation!! Very yummy! It was so good and they didn’t even know it was good for them–thanks for the recipe.

    Just picked up a bunch of fresh peaches at Vons for .49/lb. Gonna use these to try some smoothies. I love sneaking in the flax seed for some extra Omega 3’s. Also, I love the idea of adding powdered oatmeal, need to try that as well. Thanks for all your tips & recipes. Everything I’ve tried so far has been great.

    Had to use up that last banana before it went bad…used frozen peaches and strawberries! THIS WAS SO GOOD! My daughter loves smoothies…this can double as a drink with dinner and her dessert.
