Mango and Peach Smoothie Recipe | Beauty Detox

I rarely make all-fruit smoothies since my smoothies are usually an opportunity to pack in lots of nutritious veggies, but I’ll admit that a cold smoothie full of beautiful fresh fruit is a great way to cool down on a hot summer day.

This week’s Beauty Detox Recipe Challenge was to come up with a variation of Kimberly Snyder’s Summer Beauty Smoothie.

I decided to follow Kim’s lead and used a couple of fresh peaches. Ontario peaches are just beginning to come to market so I couldn’t resist picking up a basket. I see some grilled peaches served over banana ice cream in my near future!

I wanted this summer smoothie to have a bright, cheery appearance so I grabbed all the fruits I could find that were yellow.

The peaches, Alphonso mango, banana and lemon come together to create this vibrant smoothie that is sweet and just a little bit tart. Don’t you find that mangoes add a wonderful creaminess to smoothies?

The ginger gives it a slightly spicy edge that provides a nice contrast to the sweetness of the mangoes and peaches. You won’t be able to taste the turmeric under all that fruit but you will reap it’s amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. I dump a ton of turmeric into my green breakfast smoothies for the health benefits, and I’ve grown to like its deep, peppery taste.

Like I said, I don’t often drink all-fruit smoothies, so I blended the leftovers with my Green Glowing Smoothie ingredients and put a few jars in the fridge and freezer for the week. But this smoothie is ideal for breakfast or as a refreshing afternoon treat. It’s also perfect for freezing into popsicles!

    • Thanks! While I still don’t love biting into a hunk of ginger in my Chinese food, I love using it in all my smoothies and grating into food.

  1. Definitely going to have to try this tonight with some fresh peaches from my friends farm. I’ve been juicing watermelon so I might have to try adding ginger to that too.
