Peach-Banana Smoothie


Basketball Camp started this morning.  It was a little hectic as I got the spouse off to work, made lunches for the older two for their workday and getting everything ready for Basketball camp.  I decided Tim and I would drink our breakfast this morning.

We started our day with a Peach-Banana smoothie.  I love smoothies because you can be creative in making this delicious drink.   I had a peach in the fruit bowl and I always have bananas either fresh or frozen.  The big question was if the oldest ate all of the Greek yogurt. Luckily, he saved us some.
 I put a banana, one peach peeled, some honey, Greek vanilla yogurt, ice, a dash of cinnamon, some orange juice and Whey protein powder in the blender.  Within a minutes - I had to scrap down the sides  Tim and I had our breakfast.  I ran out to the garden and picked some mint to use as a garnish.  I also had some orange zest that I sprinkled on top.

I added some Whey protein powder but you do not need to.  I thought it would give  Tim an extra boast for camp.   Besides we both like it and it adds a little extra to our smoothie.
