It's been said time and time again that breakfast is a rather important meal, and if you choose to eat something in the morning, you want to make sure it's filling, is genuinely good for you, and, let's be honest here, doesn't take up too much prep time. We know you're busy and don't have tons of time to spend in the kitchen in the morning as you're heading out for the day. But that's why a smoothie is always a solid option, and here, we have a recipe for a raspberry-peach swirled smoothie that incorporates tons of fresh, naturally sweet flavors in your glass.
Besides the frozen raspberries and peaches, we combine a banana, orange juice, and Greek yogurt—along with some honey and ginger, too—to create a satisfying sweet way to kickstart your day with a healthy breakfast. All you have to do is put all the ingredients in the blender and once it's smooth, you're ready to sip away. And in case you were wondering, frozen fruit (freeze-dried too!) is just as healthy for you as fresh fruit. So you're still getting all the important nutrients you need from these fruits for a cheaper price that will last longer in your freezer and work perfectly for making this frozen drink. And because you're only using one appliance, you don't have to worry about having much to clean up either.
