Peach-Banana Smoothie

Written by Sheila Emery Murphy on .

Peaches are in peak season so enjoy this sweet, summer stone fruit smoothie. But please use organic peaches. Peaches are #2 on the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) “Dirty Dozen” which means conventionally grown peaches have one of the highest pesticide loads. According to EWG, a single peach sample showed over 13 different pesticide residues! So choose organic peaches, avoid the pesticides.
