I made this tasty peach and strawberry green smoothie the other day and shared it with my 11 month old son. He is turning into quite the smoothie drinker! I can’t believe my baby is almost a year old!!!
I added some chia seeds for the additional protein and a healthy dose of omega-3’s.
Just two tablespoons of chia seeds provide 2.4 grams of protein and 240% of your daily recommend allowance of omega-3’s.
Peaches are a good source of vitamin C, potassium, lycopene and lutein. Research shows that lycopene and lutein may help prevent heart disease, macular degeneration and certain cancers.
For an extra-refreshing green smoothie on a hot summer day, try using frozen strawberries in this recipe.
