When weather is warm I crave fruit more so than other times of the year.

Peach Banana Colada Smoothie

And it’s plenty warm here in Aruba.

So fruit smoothies have been in full swing.

They’re also easy, fast, plant-based, naturally vegan and gluten free.

And kiddie-approved, too.

SkylarShe begs me for smoothies.  There are far worse things she could beg me for.

This is an easy request:

Peach Banana Colada Smoothie (non-alcoholic)

2 small/medium bananas (previously frozen is ideal but not essential)

1 c peaches (I used canned peaches in light syrup, but fresh would be great)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 c ice cubes (use your judgment)

1/4 c white sugar (or sweetener to taste such as honey, agave, sugar, stevia, vanilla NuNaturals stevia drops.  Some may find sweetener optional but I don’t)

The remainder is optional:

1/4 c milk (nut milk, vanilla flavored nut milk, milk, cream, or peach mango milk)

1/3 c additional fruit (such strawberries, mango, pineapple, plums, nectarines, papaya, honeydew, cantaloupe, etc.)

1/4 c yogurt

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 scoop neutral or vanilla flavored protein powder

top with a handful of granola, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, raisins

For the adults: 1 to 2 ounces rum (dark rum, light rum, Malibu)

Blend everything in Vita-Mix, Magic Bullet, or blender until smooth.

Yields: one hearty portion or two more moderate portions.  Or, double the recipe, pour into plastic glasses and freeze, and pull out of the freezer as needed over the next few days to save time.

Add everything to the Magic Bullet.  I left the Vita at home. Blend and enjoy!

These have been great in the mornings…

…and also in the afternoons after the beach when we’re hot, tired, need something but don’t want to eat anything too heavy before dinner.

It was awesome reading over the comments on my last post, Local Aruba Sights, about your traveling adventures and whether you like to see the local sights when you travel and just how many “touristy” things you do.  Or avoid.

And please keep the comments coming on both the Business Cards Giveaway

And my post on Career Fantasy & Doing What You WantI love these!

Questions:

1. Do you like pina coladas?  Or peach coladas?

Yes, both.

But I like peach pina coladas better.

Something about the peach and the pineapple really hits the spot for me.  Vintage pictures, 2009

2. How’s your week going?  Anything exciting going on?

Being on vacation has been fabulous for me.  It’s given me some time to recharge my batteries and do some major thinking, soul searching, and pondering.

And it also has given me time to take care of some blog housekeeping details.  Like, I updated my Beverages/Smoothie Recipes Tab so you an find some recent hits more easily.  Thrilling, I know.

What’s been going on with you?

  1. This smoothie looks delicious! I can’t wait to try it :)
