Strawberry Peach Green Smoothie

There is an old adage that one good choice begets another. I often find that after a run or hard workout all I want is a really delicious smoothie-easy to digest and great fuel to replace what I have burned off. It is such a good feeling to give your body vitamins and nutrients that it desperately needs, and it doesn’t necessarily need to be done on workout days. The protein smoothie has been having a moment for several years now, though some are more healthy than others. Today’s recipe is non-dairy, and high in protein thanks to spinach, the amazing wonder green. Spinach is touted for its nutrients including Vitamins A, C, and K. It is also known for it’s provision of iron, calcium, and folate, which makes it a very handy vegetable to have when you are pregnant, or training, but lets be honest, we should take care of our bodies on a daily basis regardless of activity level.

The strawberry and peach in this recipe adds a little treat to the mix. I use frozen organic fruit for the added cold factor and because it is a great choice during off season months in order to get great flavor, though fresh fruits in season are always a good idea.
