So with the new diet and my attempt to be healthier I have really gotten into smoothies. So on one of my ridiculously long pinterest visits I found THIS.
All three smoothies I think are very interesting. The one I was the most interested in though was the peach, ginger smoothie. I am not sure why because neither peaches or ginger are my favorite, the recipe while simple looked really good. So today I went out and bought everything that I would need to make this smoothie.
Now I am sure you have gathered that the recipe given make one HUGE FREAKIN SMOOTHIE.
I however can not handle large smoothies. I have no idea what it is I always order small smoothies if I buy them and downsize almost every recipe that I find.
So I altered the recipe a bit...
1 small slice of ginger (I'm talking like teaspoon size because I was super worried about too much ginger)
1 heaping big spoon of honey vanilla greek yogurt
1/3 cup of coconut milk
This made a little less than an average size glass.
This smoothie is really good! I think next time I might peal the peach before I dice it up and toss it in. I say this only because my blender is not the best and left pretty big pieces of peach skin which I am not a fan of.
Only thing is, I really feel like this smoothie is missing something! I have no idea what I could add to it though that would compliment the other flavors.
So I guess the point of the post was to see if any of you had any good ideas?
Also I do recommend trying this if you are a peach, ginger lover because it is very good. I haven't tried either of the other smoothies but I do want to and will be sure to leave a review for you guys when I do.
