carrot peach smoothie

Today’s recipe creates a carrot peach smoothie. Two items rarely seen together I grant you!

You can enjoy carrots all year round but those harvested in the summer and early fall have more taste. Carrots are loaded with vitamins including A, C, and K. Eat as many as you want because they are also low in calories. Without question, Carrots and their crunchy taste make smoothies even better.

Fresh peaches are “in season” in most places begins in July and runs through August. But, depending on the weather, you can find fresh peaches as early as May and as late as September. For the tastiest peach choose ones without any hint of green coloring. If not in season frozen peaches are OK too and preferable to canned.

Its also easy to turn this carrot peach smoothie treat into even more of a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

In your favorite blender mix:

large carrot peeled and chopped
1 fresh peach seeded and sliced in quarters
1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
1 cup vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt
Tbsp. Chia seed

Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
