Coconut Peach Protein Smoothie (ลูกพีชปั่นผสมนมมะพร้าวกับผงโปรตีน)
We're in the mid-summer already and the peaches smell wonderful in the supermarket. Summer is a great season for fruits and vegetables; grapefruits, watermelons, plums, berries, peaches. Peaches seem to be the most overwhelmingly wonderful looking and smelling fruit that grab my attention this time of year. Even though we can buy peaches pretty much all year round it's better when it's a season.
It's less expensive, fresh, and they taste better. The peaches aroma is one of my favorite fruit fragrances. It smells so great when I went to a grocery store and walked past the fresh produce section. I can't stop myself to sniff those peaches and ended with buying some.
There's a tip to choose peaches. You may think if the peaches smell good then it should be all right. Good peaches that are ready to eat should have a yellow or golden color on its skin; red color is fine as long as it's not pale. Avoid the ones with green color on them. After the exterior check, now you need to gently but firmly squeeze peaches, you feel just a little "give" for the ones that are ready to eat.
There are quite a few things that I want to do with peaches, but after coming back from a hot humid grocery trip, I decided to make a cold smoothie for my husband and I.
The recipes are so easy, and we have two versions of the smoothies. One with coconut milk beverage (for me), and another one with cooking coconut milk (for Adam). The reason that we did two version because I didn't want so many calories in my drink (lite coconut milk has more calories than coconut milk beverage), but Adam didn't worry about it. He said he has been workout a lot, and he needs more calories. Below is the recipe I made for myself. If you are burning a lot of calories you may want to use the a light coconut milk for a fuller coconut flavor but pay attention to the higher fat and calorie content.
- • 1 peach, about 170g. or 6 oz.
- • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk beverage, or 7 fl.oz lite coconut milk
- • 1 tbsp honey
- • 1 scoop EAS Fruit Smoothie Protein Powder
- • 1 cup of ice
- Wash and cut peach in pieces and place them in a blender
- Add ice, coconut milk beverage or llite coconut milk, honey, and protein powder.
- Blend everything together.
- Serve in a glass. Cheers!
According to the recipe, the smoothie is a little greenish because we're using the EAS fruit smoothie protein powder, and its color is green.
