Servings: 2 (12 ounces each)

Ingredients

  • 1 orange, peeled
  • ½ cup frozen mango chunks
  • 2 peach halves
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
  • 1-2 tbsps shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup white grape juice (or more almond milk)
  • 6 ice cubes

Directions

  1. In a blender, purée all the ingredients except the ice cubes.
  2. Add the ice cubes and blend until smooth.

Tips

  • I used Trader Joe’s yellow cling peach halves in white grape juice, but you can also use other brands or a fresh peach
  • If you use fresh mango in place of frozen, you may need to add ice cubes to thicken the smoothie
  • Add ice last so you don’t over-blend, leaving you with a watery drink
  • I’ve successfully added protein powder to this recipe

Can you tell I like to frequent Trader Joe’s? 🙂
