I need this banana peach green smoothie like I need air, because running a household of six people, especially when four of them are little kids, is hard work. So hard. There are days when I can’t remember what I did five minutes ago, let alone important things like my name or where I live. How old am I again?
Oh wait, don’t remind me of that.
Most of the time, I feel like I need more hours in a day just to get everything done. Do you ever feel like that? It’s such a crazy, fast-paced world we live in, and it can be a struggle to finish a single task sometimes.
So it’s pretty easy to imagine that I can forget to eat, often, and because of that, I find myself more rundown than I should be since I’m not getting the proper vitamins and minerals from the meals I keep skipping.
When it comes to striking back and getting in the groove of happy eats I turn to my Hamilton Beach Personal Blender. Seriously, this thing is amazing. In just minutes I can whip up an amazing smoothie packed full of delicious fruits, veggies, dairy, and even protein, and I can carry it with me on the go! So while I’m off picking up my preschooler, I can be sipping on some banana peach green smoothie goodness. Or maybe a berry smoothie. Or a grape kale smoothie.
Give me allllllllllll the smoothies, am I right?
What I love best about this banana peach green smoothie is that it has a little bit of everything, so it’s more like a power smoothie. Perfect for breakfast, or after an intense workout. Gets you going without getting you down, plus it’s balanced in its flavors and utilizes maple syrup for sweetness instead of table sugar, so there is no guilt with this bad boy!
Grab your own personal blender and whip up this smoothie today, tomorrow, and the next day!
