Summertime Berry Peach Smoothie

Summertime Berry Peach Smoothie

I absolutely LOVE frozen smoothies at any time of the year (yes, even winter, strangely enough), but I especially love them in the midst of a hot summer in DC.  This summertime berry peach smoothie is packed with protein (Kefir–love this stuff!) and fiber! 

There is nothing better than cooling down after a long, hot day in the sun with one of these babies.  Or, better yet, refueling after a long, sweaty workout.  You also can’t beat all the fresh fruit and berries available in the summer season.  Top that off with a little air conditioning, a great book and you’re good to go.
