This peach mango smoothie is sure to be an A.M favorite! Fruits (and a sneaky vegetable) are blended with a touch of lime juice and unsweetened almond milk for a flavorful, customizable, and vegan smoothie.
Well, it happened. Right as I was getting comfortable with the layout of my new-ish grocery store, they went and moved around just about every aisle. That makes things exciting!
Crisscrossing the store to find the honey, I walked past a display of peach mango juice so many times that one must have leaped out straight into my cart. And no surprise here: it's delicious.
The only thing being that I tend to drink them lightening quick, which means I'm drinking calories but still looking around for breakfast or a snack within an hour. Not great.
That's where this peach mango smoothie comes in. It has all of the great flavors of my juice inspiration, but is thicker and more substantial than straight juice. If it takes longer to drink, my brain (and my stomach) feel way more satisfied.
At its base this smoothie features five ingredients: a peach, a mango, two carrots, a splash of lime juice, and milk. The squeeze of fresh lime juice adds such a wonderful quasi-tropical flavor complement!
My first choice is to use a fresh peach and a fresh mango, though those aren't two fruits I always have around. Plus both peeling a peach and peeling/slicing a slippery mango aren't exactly the easiest things to do in the morning when you just want to grab breakfast and go.
Frozen fruit certainly works here! I'd say around three-quarters of a cup of frozen peach chunks and one cup of frozen mango chunks would be appropriate substitutes, though there is definitely wiggle room on the quantities added. Just adjust the milk as needed for this smoothie to reach a sippable consistency.
Let's talk about the sneaky vegetable: carrots! Two whole carrots blend right in (literally) with the orange color and provide a boost of vitamins and nutrition. You won't even know they're in there.
As for the milk, unsweetened almond milk is a frequent ingredient in my smoothies, but I've recently been loving oat milk for a creamy-but-still-dairy-free option. Really any milk, including dairy milk, would work for this recipe.
This kefir smoothie includes lots of green goodness from spinach and avocado (!) and extra heft from granola and ground flaxseed! Kefir is a cultured milk product (like a thinner yogurt) and makes a great liquid to use in smoothies.
If you like your smoothies to be extra filling, this chocolate cherry smoothie just might fit the bill. It features oats, avocado, and frozen cherries for a healthier chocolate treat.
P.S. While this is decisively NOT on the healthy smoothie train, if you really love the peach and mango flavors together, you might love white peach mango sangria!
