I was so excited over the Labor Day weekend to have the temperatures around here down into the high 80’s! I drank hot tea and made chili and went for walks in the crisp morning air, desperately trying to hang onto any sign of fall. But of course we’re back into the 90’s this week. I’m pulling out some my end-of-summer produce to make a cold smoothie in hopes of getting through the next week of hot weather. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad we’re down to double digits, but I crave autumn.
Before I go on, yes, I am fully aware that is a nectarine in the picture. I used my last peach making the smoothie so I used the next closest thing for the picture. 😉
This is one of those easy recipes that you just dump into a blender or smoothie maker or whatever you use and blend it all up!
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 peach, pitted and rough chopped
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup loosely packed fresh spinach
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 6-8 cubes of ice (depending on how thick you like yours)
- 1 small pinch sea salt
- Toss it all in your favorite smoothie making appliance and blend. Stick a straw in it and enjoy!
