Sunny Citrus Peach Smoothie

citrus-peach-smoothie

This citrus smoothie is packed with fresh and sweet citrus peachy flavours and vitamins, and it literally tastes like sunshine in a jar. Oranges provide high levels of fibre which is important for digestive health, and vitamin C which supports the immune system. We also added some nectarines which are part of the peach family, they are also a great source of vitamin C and A.

 What tops this smoothie off is the knob of ginger that brings out the citrus flavours, and not only that: we love ginger because it contains shogaols which are reported to reduce inflammation, and have anti-diabetic and anti-cancerous properties as well. To make this recipe vegan friendly you can replace the yoghurt with non-diary milk and it’ll taste just as good!
