I love the authenticity and taste of using fresh fruit in smoothies, especially when they are in season! This smoothie is refreshing and is a great alternative to a traditional banana/peanut butter/chocolate smoothie. I love drinking smoothies as a meal replacement a few times a week – it really helps give your digestive tract a break while still giving you tons of nutrients! If fresh fruit is not an option, frozen will work too.
