Arugula and Peach Smoothie Bowls

Half fruit, half greens, these gorgeous peach smoothie bowls deliver vibrant goodness and make a satisfying breakfast (or snack). They come together in just 5 minutes with the help of your blender. For the smoothest blend, add arugula and orange juice first. Then, add frozen peaches and bananas. A little maple syrup rounds out the sharpness of the greens, while plant-based milk, added slowly, ensures the right consistency. Top with your choice of garnishes. Raspberries and sliced fresh peaches work well, as do banana slices, blueberries, or other fresh fruits. Sprinkle the bowls with a few pistachios and walnuts just before serving, to add a satisfying crunch. 


How to freeze peaches: You can find frozen peaches in most supermarkets, but you can also freeze your own. To do so, chop or slice fresh peaches (leaving skins on). Spread pieces on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze. Once frozen, transfer to a resealable plastic freezer bag for long-term storage.
