Thursday Update: Peach and Ginger Smoothie

peach and ginger smoothie recipe

1) I'm going to see Dark Knight Rises tonight at midnight in IMAX!

2) I've been using Rembrandt Intense Stain toothpaste lately and the $6 was so worth it.  It's only been a week and I've already noticed a difference in terms of whiteness and even strength of the enamel (okay, maybe I'm imagining that one). PS there are coupons on their website!

3) I'm so excited for the Bachelorette finale.  I can't help myself.  I got rid of "real" cable this summer, so the Bach is the only TV that I've been watching.  It's a total guilty pleasure.  Have you been watching? I'm #TeamJef all the way (but was so sad when she sent Sean home!).

4)  Smoothies have been my go-to breakfast lately!  You saw this Green Goodness a couple weeks ago.  Well, I've also added a Peach and Ginger smoothie into the mix.  I was inspired by a smoothie that I've had a few times at the barre studio that I go to.  This one is seriously delicious and apparently quite good for digestion.

Peach and Ginger Smoothie

1 banana
1 ripe peach, diced
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
2 tablespoons 0 or 2% plain Greek yogurt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon honey
1/4 cup ice

Blend everything together and serve!

Throw in a bit of vanilla protein powder if you want or some flax seeds!

And just because, here are the latest via my Instagram feed (user name KelseyHunter): fishtail braids for the beach, sunset over the Rideau Canal, Toasted Coconut and Kaffir Lime Donut from Suzy Q's, and a fun manicure (Essie's Mint Candy Apple and Play Date).


  1. Ooh I'm jealous you're seeing Dark Knight tonight!!
    That smoothie sounds great. I've also been having smoothies a lot and I'm ordering protein powder (Sunwarrior brand) to add to my AM smoothies. I'm doing Mark Bittman's Vegan Before 6pm thing which is just eat vegan all day, then have whatever you'd like for far so good (it's day 2 haha). Plus I have a great recipe for chickpea patties if you want!

  2. I love those colors of nail polish!! And the smoothie sounds great, too! :)

  3. I love this smoothie.

    I love that you saw the movie at imax.

    I love the braids.

    Is it sad I rock pigtails at 43? I do my hair like that when I travel or go to horse shows. It's just easy peasy.

    1. Thanks Kim! And no, it is amazing that you rock pigtails - more people should!

  4. I could drink a smoothie every single day...there's something so tasty and refreshing about them! I've never tried putting ginger in a smoothie and this is a phenomenal idea! I love the taste of ginger and it's great for you. Peach and ginger me up, this looks awesome!

  5. love the peach and ginger combination!
