strawberry peach breakfast smoothie

I remember Owen was about 9 months when he started drinking smoothies with us. For whatever reason, probably just the winter months, we stopped making them. But when peach season rolls around, enjoying smoothies is one of the first things that come to mind.
Fresh peaches are probably my favourite fruit to work into a smoothie because they add sweetness and body like no other fruit can. Since it's been so long I decided to reintroduce Owen to smoothies and now he's asking for them every morning. Here's how I make our favourite Strawberry Peach Smoothie.
In a blender blitz a combination of:
2 large fresh peaches
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup greek yogurt (plain or strawberry)
1/4 cup milk
squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Add more milk if you enjoy a more fluid smoothie.
This literally takes just 2 minutes from start to finish.

We love smoothies too (esp. Harold & Emma)! We make our own version of a funky monkey - choc. soya milk and banana - we also throw in protein powder to hold us longer until lunch :)
