Creamy Peach Delight

Not only does the Creamy Peach Delight taste like a dream, it will also directly help build muscle, burn fat, and keep you healthy and strong.

This creamy smoothie tastes like a special treat, and it is. When I make smoothies, I try to limit the amount of fruit I use due to its sugar content. Although it is all natural sugar, it is still sugar, and it can easily add up if you are not paying attention to what’s going into your mouth. Too much sugar gets converted into fat, and I always suggest to my clients who are trying to lose to limit their fruit intake to one or two servings a day. The flavor in this smoothie is out-of-this-world gooood!

Blend and try not to drink it all at once!
