How is it going with your New Years Resolutions? We’re near the end of January, and I know of several people that want to really buckle down and get healthy. I’ve learned over the years that a “diet” isn’t gonna do it. I’ve discovered that it really is changing your mindset, and developing a healthy lifestyle. I know, I know, its much easier said than done.
At least for me, a part of developing that healthy lifestyle is having healthy food alternatives on hand. This means keeping plenty of frozen fruit in the freezer, and lots of fresh fruit in our fruit bowl. This Mango Peach Smoothie is one of my go-to snacks that I love. Its a perfect afternoon snack, and I especially love blending this up post workout. Its refreshing, loaded with vitamins and minerals, and has protein from the Greek yogurt which helps keep you fuller, longer.
- 1 1/2 c. frozen peaches (or 1 can, drained and frozen)
- 1 mango, peeled and sliced
- 3/4 c. orange juice
- 1 (5.3 oz. cup) Greek yogurt, peach flavor
- 1 Tbsp. honey (optional)
- In a blender, add frozen peaches, mango, juice, yogurt and honey. Blend until all ingredients are smoothly pureed. Makes 2 medium smoothies.
Next time you’re at the grocery store, stock up on some fresh and frozen fruits – get them home, and EAT them. If you’re getting your fruits and veggies, you’re going to have more energy to get through the day. You’ll feel better about what you’re putting into your body. With that being said, keep up the great work on your New Years resolution to eat healthy. You can totally do this!!
