The smoothie looks very good. The only thing I would add is a handful of fresh spinash to boost up the nutritional value. Thanks for sharing.

this sounds very tasty, esp now that peaches are in season. I've really gotten into green smoothies lately, too. I use lots of spinach, celery, cucumber, lettuce, etc., toss a bit of fruit in, and you can't even taste the veggies!
