Peach season is my favorite season of all! There is nothing like bite into to a perfectly ripe Georgia-grown peach. Luckily, I live in Tennessee so they are plentiful! We’ve already been through two cases this summer! I wish it lasted longer. But all good things must come to an end, that’s what they say right? That may be true, but I like to prolong things a bit. During May and June, we pick up extra local strawberries and peaches to freeze, so we can enjoy them longer. I might make a fruit-filled dessert, but a smoothie is my go-to use for my coveted frozen fruits!
Smoothies are refreshing during hot summer days, and a wonderful way to add some needed nutrients to your day, too. My whole family likes them so we enjoy making a big batch to share for a snack or meal.
With PCOS, it’s beneficial to include fiber, protein, and fat at meals (and some combination of those at snacks, too), to help keep blood glucose steady and provide plenty of nutrients the body needs.
The typical smoothie is just fruit, liquid, and maybe yogurt, too. This smoothie recipe, however, includes much more to provide you with a satisfying and nutrient-dense delicious smoothie! It includes protein, fat, and fiber to make this a “PCOS-friendly” smoothie!
You can read more about how to build a PCOS-friendly smoothie here. Typically, it includes this basic formula.
The basic smoothie formula: liquid + protein + fat + fruit + veggies + extras
In this smoothie you’ll find:
Liquid: water kefir, orange juice
Protein: greek yogurt
Fruit: banana, strawberries, peaches
Veggie: baby spinach
Extra: ground flaxseed
This combo makes a tangy, creamy smoothie! It’s enough for two servings–one for you and one to share! Or if you prefer, you can put half of it away for later (use within a couple days). This is perfect for breakfast and snacks, but I also love to pair smoothies with other items at lunch or dinner, too!
