Summer season is here and you know what that means?!? PEACHES – I love this summer time fruit and one of my favorite ways to have peaches is in my smoothies. The sweet and summery goodness of peach is more than just a culinary treat to the world. Let’s unwrap the health benefits of this fruit with my delicious smoothie recipe for your indulgence!
Sweet and Hydrating
This fruit is a good supplement to your daily hydration needs. It contains 85 to 89 percent water, a perfect way to satisfy both your thirst and palate at the same time.
Optimized with Fiber
Eat the whole fruit to maximize the fiber content which is good for digestive support and regulating sugar levels. One-medium sized peach contains 3 grams of fiber when you include the skin.
Your Vitamin C Buddy
Unlikely it may seem, but the peach is going for the citrus fruit gig. This fruit contains 10 milligrams of vitamin c for every medium-sized peach which are about 13 percent of your recommended daily intake. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant known to protect your body against oxidative damage.
While Vitamin A is known for keeping your skin and eyes healthy, it is also a primary nutrient that keeps your organs and gut lining healthy thus, fending off the pathogens that we absorb through food.
