Here’s a great smoothie recipe during those days when there’s a heat wave sweeping through your city in July. Even though I no longer live in Miami where I am 15 minutes from the beach, this smoothie is almost as good!
1 peach, with skin, sliced into quarters
5 frozen strawberries
1 banana, cut into chunks
1/4 cup water
Juice of 3 mandarins/tangelos/clementines (whatever is in season)
Blend the peach, banana, water, and mandarin juice together. Add the frozen strawberries and use the “Ice Crush” button. After a few seconds, switch back to the “Smoothie” or “Blend” button. Enjoy!
You can also make this smoothie using a nectarine instead of a peach.
