I made this smoothie recipe this morning for breakfast and I was very surprised. I am not a fan of peaches, but this gave me a new appreciation for them. First of all, it was very simple to make. I used a fresh peach, vanilla plain Greek yogurt, Almond milk, and then cinnamon on top. I use a blender bottle so it was very easy to just blend it up and walk right out the door with it. The taste of the peaches is surprisingly refreshing and I think I may have a different opinion on them now. Thanks for this recipe, it will be a keeper for me that is for sure.
