There's nothing like the taste of fresh picked sweet juicy peaches to start your day. That's why this breakfast smoothie is such a sweet treat in the mornings.
Did you know peaches are a great source of protein? Add in Greek yogurt, mix it all together and you have yourself a power breakfast.
I prefer to use freshly cut chunks of peaches over frozen because fresh is always better. So for this recipe I use frozen vanilla Greek yogurt in the smoothies to get the slushy consistency I want.
I freeze the yogurt the night before. Then I let the container sit in a pan of hot water for about 5-10 minutes before chunking it up with a fork. This is how my kids prefer it and it provides the perfect frozen slushie that's easy to slurp down with a straw.
What I love about this simple recipe is that you can always double or even triple the ingredients and what you don't finish for breakfast can be poured into popsicle molds forfrozen treats anytime.
But the key to this sweet tasting treat is fresh peaches. Enjoy in the morning as a protein-filled breakfast or treat yourself to a frozen novelty or snack anytime of the day.
