Mom always said, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!” Little did I know how right she was until I found myself famished at 10:00am because I had neglected to eat breakfast when I became a grown up. I have learned my lesson, that’s for sure!

So, to prove to all of you how easy it can be, I borrowed my niece, Lillian to help me make breakfast on Monday morning. Keep in mind, it is the heart of summer and we happened to be at the beach, so I decided it was the perfect time to hit up some serious fresh produce and create something delicious and fun. Guess what we decided to make… PeachBerry Monster Smoothies! I created the recipe simply from items we had in the house and we went to town!

PeachBerry Monster Smoothies

It was pretty simple and extremely delicious. Our recipe made a 14 oz. smoothie for me and a 6 oz. smoothie for Lil.

PeachBerry Monster Smoothies

  1. 1 cup fresh blueberries (or frozen)
  2. 1 whole peach
  3. 2 cups of baby spinach
  4. 2 tablespoons of plain greek yogurt
  5. 4 ice cubes (Lillian is 4, so 4 was the only option for us)
  6. 1/2 cup of water

Place all of the ingredients into the blender, put the lid on tight and blend. In the winter, frozen produce is a great alternative to fresh. Check out the freezer section of your local grocery store!
