Healthy family recipe: Peach pie smoothie

Peaches are in season and perfect for smoothies. Smoothies can be a great treat every once in a while, but beware that many smoothies out there contain sugar and juice. Stick with a few ingredients and add some yogurt or milk for some protein. Very ripe peaches are the best for this recipe.
