peach smoothie 1

So as much as we try to fight them, we ALL make New Years resolutions. If you’re like me, a new year brings hopes of a healthier, happier version of you. Yes, we need to love ourselves for who we are and yada yada yada BUT I think January 1st can make us challenge ourselves. Challenge us to eat better, be more active, be kinder. Is that so bad? Sure, we need to not beat ourselves up when we don’t live up to the expectations but I’ve always been one to set goals. Set them until you reach them! Eh? Let’s do this.

First step to eating better…smoothies! Smoothies are so fabulous. I know juicing is the big craze right now but smoothies need some love too! My friend, Megan, introduced me to the KEY ingredient in smoothies: yogurt. Yogurt ties in the whole shebang.

I’ve made this smoothie after all of my workouts so far (Go me! Can I get a slow clap for that?!). It’s so tasty, healthy, and easy. It’s like icecream but without the guilt. WIN.

Enjoy this, guys! It’s pretty filling so I love to have this as my breakfast in the morning.

Peach Smoothie (recipe adapted from here)

1 1/2 cup peaches, frozen
1 banana, cut into chunks
Splash of orange juice (approx. 1/4th cup)
1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk)
1/3 cup yogurt (I used Dannon’s Light Vanilla… it’s like the dairy version of crack)

Blend all ingredients (how’s that for easy) and enjoy!
