Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chilled milk
  • 1 peach
  • 10-12 raspberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds optional

Instructions

  • Add half of the chilled milk (dairy/non dairy) to the blender.
  • Then add the chopped peaches. Add half the protein powder.  Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into a serving glass and keep aside.
  • Add the remaining milk, fresh/frozen raspberries, the remaining protein powder and chopped banana. Blend everything together. Pour this into the same serving glass as before.
  • Drink immediately.

Notes

Here are some tips on how to choose and store peaches:
  • Look for peaches that are fragrant and bright colored
  • Gently squeeze them - if there's some give then the peach is ripe and ready to use. If the fruit is firm, it is not fully ripe.
  • Choose peaches based on when you plan on using them.
  • Store them at room temperature when you get home
  • If they get ripe and you still don't plan on using them just yet, you can store them in your refrigerator for a couple of days.
  • Peaches bruise easily, so be careful and don't store them on top of one another.
  • Pitting a peach can be troublesome sometimes. Usually, just cutting the peach into two halves around the pit, will allow the pit to fall out. If however, this does not happen, use a knife or spoon to scoop out the pit.
Here are some tips on how to choose and store raspberries:
  • When choosing Raspberries, look for ones that are plump and firm.
  • Don't store these fruits for too long, the fresher they are when you eat them, the better they taste.
  • Raspberries will bruise easily, so don't place them under running water. Instead, dip them in a bowl of water to clean them.
Important Tips
- I divided the process into 2 steps because I wanted a color gradient in my smoothie. However, you can just add all the ingredients to the blender in one shot and blend
You can use dairy/non-dairy milk based on your preference. This does not affect the taste of the smoothie in any way.
- I have made this smoothie with both peeled and un-peeled peaches. Again, you are free to choose. I prefer un-peeled because this preserves the nutritional value of the peach.
- I use fresh raspberries,  but in the event you can't find them fresh, you will usually find frozen Raspberries in the frozen foods aisle.
- I use bananas (frozen or fresh) to make my smoothies thick and creamy.
- Both peaches and bananas are naturally sweet - so there is no need to add any more sugar to this smoothie.
- I use the Hamilton Beach 53603 SoundShield Blender to make my smoothies.
