How to Make Sweet Peach Banana Smoothie

Step-by-Step

  1. Place 1 cup of the ice cubes and pulse to get them going. Add about half of the ice cubes, and bananas, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg and pulse to blend smoothie, about 15 seconds. Add remaining ice, vanilla extract, peaches, strawberries(optional), Apples(optional),peach juice, yogurt with a splash of low fat milk and wheat germ(optional), Pulse to blend these to desired consistency. You want everything blended but have a little testure from the last round of ice. Pour into a glass or to go beverage container and enjoy!
  2. Note:
    When I have bananas that I know are ready to be frozen (outside is turning dark). Peel them, and place into individual bags. Some, I break up or slice up and freeze, some cut in half, some left whole. Each bag will contain 1 banana to avoid confusion, or if different, label it. These bags can then be placed into a large freezer bag to avoid any frost. It makes knowing that it is all done for you, you just reach in, grab a bag, plop into your blender with your other ingredients, pour into your glass and go.
