To be honest this recipe came out of nowhere. I knew I wanted to make a recipe using peaches. They just looked so good at the store so I had to pick them up. I was originally going to make a peach tart, or a peach pie but I after the overcast reading weekend I just wasn’t feeling like baking anything.
Then when I was on the treadmill I was dreaming of what I was going to have post-workout, because duh that is really why we workout. For the post-workout food. I figured a protein shake would be the fastest way to get some nutrition, and it would not require me to turn on the oven. Win – win!
This was so light and refreshing, and I used sugar free versions of the orange juice and lemonade to save on the sugar content. Great way to get some protein in, while disguising it with a bit of fruity goodness.
Ingredients: 1/2 cup 0% Greek Yogurt ~ 1 Cup of Orange Juice ~ 1 Cup of Lemonade ~ 1 medium/large Peach
Directions: Place all ingredients into a blender and blend, blend, blend. Pour and enjoy! So simple you have no excuse not to make this one.

Looks Delish. Love fresh peaches !
Keeping calories low with sugar free is good!
I am literally sweet and low(5’2″) and use that
All the time even though it is not supposed
To be good for you.
Love, SMD’s momma
It is such a great flavor. Haha!! You are sweet and low. 😉 I did make the switch to Stevia/Truvia since it is supposed to be better for you but sugar free is better than the alternative.
This looks so good – how do you always come up with the best recipes?! Not complaining at all – keep em’ coming lol!! xo
Thank you. Random ideas just pop in my head, or I find one ingredient in the grocery store that I just want to use and build from there.

YUM! sounds yummy 🙂 you always have the best concoctions!
Thank you. This was such a last minute recipe too. I may have to make one every night now. 🙂
i need this in my life. and it’s healthy?? i’m IN!
You do!! It was so light tasting. Healthy for the win!
I drink shakes in the morning and at night and When I first looked at the pic I thought bummer it has milk so I cant make it but then I realized you use yogurt! So much win for this recipe!
Yeah!! Glad to hear it. I don’t drink milk either so I never use it. I only keep almond milk in the house. Yogurt tends to be the base for most smoothies for me. Hope you give it a try!
This looks so summery and refreshing! Yummm
Thank you. It was very light and refreshing. Perfect citrus/peachy flavor.
This sounds so yummy for breakfast!
It would be a perfect breakfast smoothie!
this looks amazing, except for the name, haha! and absolutely that is why we workout, for the post workout food!
Haha! It was based on the alcoholic version, but I agree. Yes, workout more so you can eat more!!!
This is perfect! Light, sweet, and refreshing. Yum! I didn’t have time to make my smoothie this morning, now I am craving this!
It was really yummy. It will be making a repeat performance in my house for sure. Give it a try!

Good idea on using the yogurt!
Thank you. I really wanted to bump up the protein to help after my run. My poor knees are old. 😉
A peach protein smoothie? Sign me up!!! This sounds so yummy.
It was so good. I was a little unsure but it worked.

Yes, it was very refreshing and perfect for post-workout. Thank you very much.
WHAT A FUN IDEA!!! Fuzzy navels are definitely one of my favorite drinks that I always forget about but LOVE when I have them 🙂
Yes, and non-alcoholic healthy version is always nice. Though you can always add liquor. 😉
This looks delicious! Thank you for sharing!
Very welcome. Hope you give it a try.
This looks really good! I haven’t had anything peachy is a long time. I like smoothies for breakfast.
It is the perfect time of year for it! Love smoothies in the morning so you can grab and go!

Great idea! I love anything orange so much.
It was so refreshing especially after such a hot run.
This sounds nummy… I love peaches. I still think you should make a pie. But let me test it before you put the recipe out there. ;P
It was so yummy. I might just make another. Pie is totally on the menu, not sure if it would ship well though. I’ll eat a slice for you! ;p
Kate @ Green Fashionista says
This looks amazing and super easy 🙂
It was so easy and so light.
That looks delish! I tend to stay away from peaches because I’m lazy and hate peeling them. Every year my mom would get fresh peaches and we would peel them and freeze for the winter. Now I just walk around the farmer’s market and eat their free peach samples.
Thank you. Ummm yeah I didn’t peel them since I was blending it up. 🙂 Good idea to blend and freeze though.

I dream about what I’m going to eat when I’m done with my workout pretty much the entire time I’m doing that exercise….. 😉
It really helps make the time go faster! 😉
Yuummmm!!! I flippin’ LOVE peaches!!! Thank you for sharing!! 😀
Very welcome! It was a really nice peach flavor, and so quick to put together.
I’m about to get back on the early morning exercise bandwagon so I totally needed some protein shake ideas. This one looks really yummy!
Thank you. it was really light and refreshing, you can even add some wheat germ for a little more fiber and to fill you up too.
This sounds delicious and like the perfect treat to have after working out! Also, the term fuzzy naval has always tickled my funny bone for some reason.
It was so yummy. Haha! It does have a funny name, but it doesn’t taste like a navel! 😉
