Sweaters and hot chocolate be damned. Summer may be gone but my smoothies are here to stay. The produce section of my grocery may be looking a bit different lately but my freezer's frozen fruit selection is looking pretty good. Adding to my list of delicious breakfast drinks, I've turned once more to Victoria Boutenko's Green for Life book of recipes. Easy as ever, this peachy refreshment packs a flavorful punch while providing some essential vitamins and nutrients.

The recipe yields one quart, which is perfect for four full 16-ounce servings. With each sip, you're getting a dose of fiber, niacin, potassium, folate, and manganese. The smoothie is also rich in vitamins E, A, C, and K, which will add an extra boost to the immune system. And, if you need to add some more flavor to the drink, try subbing a banana for two of the peaches.
