are native to China and have a fuzzy velvet skin. In some
countries peaches are known as Persian apples. Peaches
originally came to Europe by way of Persia. While peaches are my
favorite in this recipe, you can adapt this recipe for use with
similar soft fruits such as mangoes. Smoothies have so many
possibilities. With a scoop of protein powder, the smoothie
becomes a healthy breakfast or post-workout shake. Most
smoothies contain fruit which has been blended with yogurt and
milk. The use of soy milk in this smoothie is a nice change and
actually makes the drink creamier. Soy milk contains Isoflavones
which fight cancer and inhibit free radical damage.

tablespoons frozen orange concentrate
tablespoons vanilla-flavored protein powder
