1/4 Cup Peaches

1 Cup Orange Juice

2 Tbsp Flax Seed Oil

2-3 Tbsp Chia Seeds

Pretty Basic. Throw it all in a blender for 15-30 seconds and you’re good to go! I love smoothies because they are so simple and so easy! Blueberries are a great source of energy and help keep focus through out the day. They are also full of medicine quoteantioxidants which kill free radicals in the body and promote healthy aging and can help prevent cancer. Tag teaming with peaches and you’ve got an unbeatable combination: they are so, so delicious — definitely one of my favorite fruits — and they are also full of antioxidants and Vitamin C. In addition to inhibiting free radicals, the Vitamin C found in peaches, blueberries, and orange juice promote healthy skin and youthful properties because it increases collagen production. Furthermore, both peaches and blueberries promote a healthy heart ❤ Peaches and Blueberries both contain fiber and Vitamin C, the bananas and peaches contain potassium, all of which can dramatically reduce risk of heart disease if taken regularly and with a low salt diet. And if that’s not enough, the yogurt will help your gut’s micro biome and promote good gut bacteria and healthy flora which will help with your digestive processes. Enjoy!
