Long time no talk, right?
Today I wanted to ramp everyone up for a great summer smoothie! I know, spring started yesterday… Summer came early to my area so let’s get on with the warm days at the pool drinking smoothies.
This smoothie is going to be a Peach/Coconut smoothie. Nothing says summer like coconut and peaches. We will be using full-fat coconut milk instead of cow’s milk. Much healthier and much more summer, it won’t weigh you down as much. This is a simple three ingredient recipe as well so you won’t break the bank or have too much prep time at all. On top of being a simple smoothie, it’s also very healthy. We’re all about health at Pravante.
- Full-Fat Coconut Milk – 1 Cup
- Ice – 1 Cup
- Peeled Fresh Peaches Chopped – 2 or 3
- Lemon Zest – Dash
How do you make it?
Simple! Put all of the ingredients into your blender, and blend! It doesn’t get much easier than this. The next time you hit the pool don’t forget to bring your favorite smoothie with you. If you liked this post please share with your friends! They would love this smoothie just as much as you do and we all could use more healthy fun recipes.

If you are looking to lose a few pounds for next summer why not start now? There are plenty of great exercising techniques that can be used to shed pounds along with eating clean in the kitchen. Take some of our smoothie recipes and drink them after one of your intense workouts! Clean eating and exercise are the keys to weight loss. The catch is, consistency. You need to be consistent in your practices to see results. Sometimes results are slow coming but if you continue the grind results will come. Read the two great exercise techniques below.
You can find many Yoga studios around the country, personally, I take some great yoga classes in Kansas City. Depending on your city I’m sure you can find a great studio. Yoga is not only soothing of the body but it relieves stress on your mind. A calm warming environment. The music soothes the soul. Regular yoga is great but in my opinion hot yoga is even better. Sweating out all the toxins really is a great feeling. There are many different positions within yoga and transitioning from position to position helps with burning calories and especially with flexibility. With yoga you not only feel better about the workout itself but with your own mind and body.
Next and last I will be speaking about pilates. This is a workout that will test your core strength in ways you have never felt before. Using special apparatus’ to perform these positions is essential so you will either need to buy one or go to a gym with pilates classes like the pilates classes in Kansas City that I take. Pairing pilates with yoga is a great practice but not everyone has enough time in their days to allow for that. If you are trying to choose between the two, one is not necessarily better than the other but each person has their own preferences. Personally I like both enough to engage in both! If you don’t want to join a pilates class you can always buy a dvd and practice alone until you’re comfortable trying it out in front of other people if you’re shy.
As you can see, both techniques listed above have some great qualities to them that could really help you in your battle to lose some weight. Don’t forget that exercise alone is not fully responsible for your weight loss. A lot of people will work out but continue to eat unhealthy and then wonder why they look the same. Your body needs clean fuel that it can burn efficiently so if you’re working out please feed it properly! You wouldn’t give a racecar unleaded gas so don’t do it to your only body.

Are you looking for a new type of health smoothie to get your day going? Acai is a great way to get your day going! Acai berries are shaped like blueberries and come from Central and South America. They are packed with great antioxidants and can help prevent cancer.Although these berries are readily available at our grocery stores they aren’t that simple to round up. All harvesting has to be done by hand! The berries grow on trees up to sixty feet tall and therefore you cannot use any kind of machinery to get them down. If you were wondering what these berries taste like most people compare them to dark chocolate. It’s slightly bitter but has a hint of chocolate flavor which really has made it very popular! More health benefits from these berries, along with all of the antioxidants they also contain healthy fatty acids such as Omega-3 and Omega-6. Those fatty acids are very important to keeping an overall healthy body!
