Last month Cooking Light ran a nice feature of smoothies that used Greek yogurt as a base. I tried several of them, including one with watermelon, cucumber, and mint (delicious). Inspired by the article, I played around with this peach mango smoothie from their archives and adapted it for Greek yogurt, and I love it! Between the sweet peaches, mangoes, and the honey, it has just the right amount of sweetness for my taste, and I add a touch of vanilla for a bit of richness. Plus, the Greek yogurt gives it a little protein boost and makes it thick, like a milkshake.
Packaged frozen fruit is a convenient way to keep fruit on hand for smoothies, but if you have loads of fresh peaches and mango, just prep and bag them for the freezer to pull out any time.
