Our blender recently died – Jack was making a smoothie one morning a few weeks ago, when all of a sudden, smoke started coming from the motor! That blender had lasted us a good long time – Jack came into our relationship with it, so we know it was at least 12 years old. It had reliably mixed up many a delicious pitcher (or two…) of margaritas and many other recipes over the years, so we were a little sad to see it go!
Since we used that blender quite a bit – especially when we’re making recipes like this Fresh Pineapple Peach Smoothie – we knew that we wanted (and needed!) to invest in a good quality replacement. But after looking at prices for some of the very top-of-the-line blenders – and even knowing how much people love them – we decided to get this Breville blender which we absolutely love! (By the way, this is NOT a sponsored post – we just love our new blender!)
This fresh pineapple peach smoothie was inspired by one that I recently had at our local farmer’s market – and with a brand new blender at home, what a great excuse to try recreating it at home! This is a wonderfully light and frothy blend of sweet fresh pineapple and peaches, combined with some plain non-fat Greek yogurt and milk. A little bit of agave nectar is added for sweetness (you can also use honey, but the agave lends a more neutral sweetness to this drink) as well as vanilla for some extra flavor.
Our fresh pineapple peach smoothie makes a great, quick breakfast – or a refreshing snack or dessert!
