This summer, I’m all about the smoothie life. With humidity levels much higher than this desert transplant is used to, starting off my morning with an ice cold smoothie is refreshing. Smoothies are also great for moving things along since they’re easy to digest (tip: add in a MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax to help with occasional constipation). Plus, my local Walmart has tons of frozen fruit options for me to choose from and carries my MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax. All that to say: smoothies are convenient, easy, and super delicious!
Peach is my favorite fruit, so this Peach Green Tea Smoothie is one of my regular flavors on rotation. I start by adding some chilled green tea (I just use store bought) and a heaping cup of peaches to my blender.
Next I add in about half of a frozen banana and some plain Greek yogurt.
Then I sweeten it up with some honey and add a hint of vanilla.
I add in some ice to make it extra frosty and keep me cool in this crazy humidity!
Then I give it all a good go in my blender until it’s smooth.
When I’m dealing with occasional constipation, this smoothie makes a delicious solution by adding a packet of MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax, using as directed on the box. MiraLAX® works with my body’s natural process and provides effective relief from my occasional constipation. Because it works with my body, it also provides a gentle experience, without harsh side effects. MiraLAX® is different from stimulant laxatives because it works with the water in my body to hydrate, soften, and ease which unblocks my system naturally rather than stimulant laxative pills which forcefully stimulate the nerves in the colon.
Once I’ve added my MiraLAX®, if necessary, I pour the smoothie into a cup, add a colorful straw, and enjoy my simple, deliciously cold breakfast smoothie!
