Sugarfree Peach and Cucumber Smoothie with Almond Meal | Vegan Summer Drinks | Kids Recipes

Think Summer, think Smoothies, Coolers, Salads and other quick Summer Meals without hovering over the stove for long time . Also, as kids are at home during the summer vacation, we also need to give them healthy bites that fill their little tummies as well as providing them with energy. As with most smoothies made at home, this too was an sugarfree innovation by hubby dearest. Well, he made the drink recently and we all enjoyed it a lot... Needless to say, he never adds refined sugar to any smoothie, but still manages to make it really yummy :-)) Do try this at home and let me know how you enjoyed it... Off this goes to Day 1 of Week 4 of BM #30 under Summer Specials, Valli's Summer Special Mela, Mir who is hosting Kids Delight - Summer Meals & Saju who is hosting Ramzan Fest
