Keen Peachy Smoothie

Keen Peachy Smoothie | ChopChop

Description

A smoothie is like a cool breeze—just right for a hot day! Most store-bought smoothies are too high in sugar. But if you make one yourself using real fruit and plain real yogurt, it's a super-healthy drink that's also a great snack.

Measuring cups
Sharp Knife (adult needed)
Cutting board
Blender

Ingredients

1⁄4 cup
coconut water or tap water
3⁄4 cups
plain low-fat yogurt
2  
fresh or frozen peaches, chopped. If you're using fresh peaches, wash them and take the pits out. (If you like, leave the skin on.)
1⁄2  
overripe banana, peeled and sliced, fresh or frozen (Tip- it's great to keep banana slices in the freezer. You'll always be smoothie-ready.)
2  
ice cubes
6  
toasted pecans, almonds, or walnuts

Instructions

  1. Put the coconut water (or tap water) and yogurt in a blender, then add the fruit and ice cubes. Add the pecans (or almonds or walnuts) if you like.
  2. Put the top on tightly. Turn the blender to medium and blend until the ice is chopped and the mixture is smooth, about 2 minutes.
  3. Serve right away or cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours.
