Start your morning off right with this delicious Ginger Peach Detox Smoothie that is sweet, creamy and super refreshing! A special thanks to Born Sweet Zing™Organic Stevia Sweetener – Zero Calories for sponsoring this post!
I don’t know about you, but I just love smoothies! They are one of my favorite morning pick-me-ups that I literally look forward to drinking on my way to work each day because they just taste so refreshing. The only problem is, who has time to do all that chopping, blending and cleaning up when you’re trying to run out the door?? Yeah no one.
Having only a few minutes in the morning to prep a healthy breakfast sure can be a recipe for disaster so that’s why I love making frozen smoothie packs! I mean you all know how much I LOVE my weekly meal prep and truth be told I like to plan out my smoothies for the week the same way! Simply distribute servings of your fruit, veggies and leafy greens into plastic baggies, seal them up and place them in your freezer. Then when you’re ready to make your smoothie, all you have to do is pour the contents of one freezer pack into your blender, add your liquid and blend! Super quick, super easy and little to no mess to clean up after. Basically you can make a whole month’s worth of smoothies in less than an hour and Born Sweet Zing™Organic Stevia Sweetener – Zero Calories makes it even easier to sweeten on the go!
This Ginger Peach Detox Smoothie is one of my favorites too because the flavors are so delicious and it also means that I’m getting my greens first thing in the morning! To make this smoothie I simply combined frozen peaches, half a banana, a handful of spinach, about a tablespoon of fresh ginger, Greek yogurt mixed all together with a little coconut water and sweetened with Born Sweet Zing™ Organic Stevia Sweetener. Now if that doesn’t make you excited to get up in the mornings then I don’t know what does!
Born Sweet Zing is a certified organic, zero-calorie sweetener that is made from stevia leaves and has a delicious, clean taste! I really love using this as a sweetener because not only does it easily dissolve when added to beverages, but the single-serving packets are perfect to grab on-the-go or keep in my purse whenever I need them. Born Sweet Zing can be sprinkled in your morning coffee or tea, mixed in with overnight oats or cereal and, as you can see here, taste great in smoothies!
I mean just one packet of Born Sweet Zing is equal in sweetness two teaspoons of sugar so a little sure goes a long way!
Now one of the reasons I love making these smoothie packs is not only the convenience of them, but how versatile they are too. You can easily switch up your favorite fruit combinations and liquid choices to whatever your preference may be. Sometimes I’ll use an avocado in place of a banana for extra creaminess or almond milk instead of coconut water. Mixing things up every now and then prevents you from getting tired of the same old smoothie each day and challenges you to try new things!
Another little secret that I like to do is also freeze the yogurt ahead of time which is another great time saver. I just distribute the yogurt into regular ice cube trays, freeze them and then add the cubes to each smoothie pack. They blend perfectly with the rest of the ingredients and this saves you from having to run out to the store every time you want to make a smoothie, but may not have all the ingredients on hand!
Now how easy is that?!
You can also write on each bag how much liquid to add just to make things even easier. I typically like to add one cup of liquid per smoothie bag and there are so many different variations you can try such as almond milk, coconut water, orange juice, and even kombucha! For this recipe I used coconut water just because it’s my favorite and tastes so refreshing, but you could also use regular water or even just ice. Then I just add a little bit of Greek yogurt for some extra creamy goodness along with one packet of Born Sweet Zing!
Then simply blend everything together in your blender and your smoothie is ready to go! Easy, refreshing and great to make in the mornings before running out the door to work. Plus with all this gorgeous weather we’ve been having it’s the perfect time to start prepping those freezer packs!
If you like to workout in the mornings like I do then feel free to add a scoop of your favorite protein powder to this as well. Smoothies make great post-workout drinks and not only do they taste super satisfying, but they really help your muscles recover. So the next time you take that morning spin class or have a good sweat sesh during a solid HIIT workout, remember to refuel your body with a delicious smoothie!
