Peaches are a favorite summertime fruit around my house (available in May through September) because they make a perfect snack for our on-the-go plans. For some reason peaches have always made me feel happy and I recently discovered they are called the “fruit of calmness” in Hungary. I’ve been playing with these juicy fruits, and I’ve come up with my favorite peach smoothie with lecithin recipe. Read more about these ingredients and the recipe below.
Well this season I’m experimenting with peach smoothie recipes. Here’s the first one. This recipe also contains lecithin. Read on to learn why I included this supplement.
Several years ago I was experimenting with supplements to help me through some tough times. I was experiencing depression, I was exhausted, and I needed to lose a few pounds. One of the supplements I discovered at that time was lecithin. Lecithin is a necessary component of each cell in our bodies. It helps to breakdown fats (which promotes weight loss), boosts cardiovascular health and improves brain function. We need between 30 and 50 grams of lecithin daily to maintain optimal health.
I started buying my lecithin in powdered form, which you can use in a number of different ways. My favorite way to use it is in my smoothies. The soy lecithin that I buy (non-gmo of course) tastes a little nutty and adds a creamy texture to my smoothies due to it’s emulsifying properties (keeps liquids mixed together).
Today’s peach smoothie recipe features peaches and lecithin. It is so creamy and delicious, even your kids will enjoy this one. I’d like to thank my fans on Facebook for helping me name this smoothie. I think the name is perfect.
