Green smoothies and drinks were a huge fad at one time. Must say I wasn’t a big fan but this super healthy spinach and peach smoothie tastes of the peach and banana and not of spinach at all. Nothing against spinach of course but I prefer the taste of peach when I’ve got a glass in my hand!
Smoothies, the best way to start the day other than porridge in my book. I love the ease of smoothies, just throwing everything together in the blender, pressing a button and hey presto breakfast is served.
This spinach and peach smoothie is one of my favourite go-to breakfasts.
I’ve mixed up spinach with peaches and banana for my main base in this smoothie.
Then add in some Spirulina powder, Gogi berries, flaked almonds, pumpkin seeds, pine nuts and sunflower seeds for crunch and almond milk to smooth things out and bring it all together.
