Peaches are a summertime staple and they’re the perfect snack to help manage your weight.
Packed with a great deal of nutrients — including vitamin A, niacin and potassium — peaches have few calories and no fat. They're also an excellent source of fiber and ideal for keeping cholesterol low. When paired with raspberries, you’ll receive a dose of vitamin K, vitamin C and magnesium.

- 1 cup sliced peaches, fresh, frozen or canned (drained and rinsed)
- 1 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries; reserve six berries for garnish
- Mint leaves (optional), for garnish
Add peaches, yogurt, ice and all but six raspberries into a blender and puree.
Serve in a tall glass, garnished with the reserved berries. The smoothie will be thick enough to float them on top.
Add fresh mint leaves for a fun presentation.
