Spring is here! This is seriously my favorite time of year. Well no, that’s not entirely true. I really love all the seasons but right now I’m in love with springtime.

Peachy Green Smoothie

One of the perks of springtime is that peaches are in season. Oh, how we love peaches! This soft and juicy fruit is one we can’t get enough of and often buy them by the case. Super sweet, they are perfect to add to any smoothie to give it a natural sweetener.

Since things have been very busy here lately, it’s been a while since I posted anything. My sister-in-law is getting hitched and we have less than a week to be ready. On that note, I’m super stoked that the wedding is in Cancun! I’m really needing a vacation, even if it’s only for 4 days.

Another reason springtime is a favorite of mine is all the amazing fruit. This is the time when I’m more of a fruitarian than anything else, which is great since I will probably lose a couple of pounds and get rid of the added weight from winter and holiday feasting. I just hope it’s in time for this wedding. Wish me luck!

This recipe is light, sweet, simple to make, and perfect for your kiddos since the taste isn’t too overbearing. The peaches really make this recipe what it is, so when picking out peaches, smell for the sweetness. If they don’t smell sweet, then they probably won’t be sweet when they ripen.
