Superfood Infused Peach Smoothie

This peach smoothie is loaded with superfoods and vitamins. It’s the perfect late afternoon – out on the front porch – soaking up the last days of summer – concoction. Doesn’t that sound nice?!

1 large peach cut into chunks
1/2 c milk (almond milk, skim milk…)
1 scoop Protein Essentials Collagen
1 t chia seeds
1/4 t maca
2 ice cubes

Add all the ingredients to a blender and process until desired consistency is achieved.
Enjoy!
Pro tip: Add the milk first, then add the chia seeds. Let the chia seeds hang out in the milk while you cut up the peach. This will increase the chia seeds bioavailability.
