Gingery Peach Mango Smoothie

Today was one of those busy days where I started out running.  On days like this, I blend up smoothies either for a quick breakfast or for a refreshing pick- me- up.  Smoothies are both nutritious and delicious.

One of my favorite fruit combinations to use in smoothies is peach mango. I find the peach mango fruit combination very satisfying and flavorful.  The following recipe adds vanilla yogurt, gingersnaps, and honey to the peaches and mango nectar  to make a tasteful and healthy smoothie. 

                                          Gingery Peach Mango Smoothie

2 cups sliced fresh or frozen peaches
1-cup vanilla yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup ginger snap pieces
1-cup mango nectar
Whipped Cream
2 tablespoons ginger snap crumbs for garnish

1. Place ingredients in order listed in a blender.  If you need, poke the ingredients in the blender with a spoon to allow the nectar to flow down.
2.  Blend on high until smooth.
3. Pour in glasses and top with whipped cream and ginger snap crumbs.
4.  Serve.
