There's a good reason why vanilla is the most popular natural flavoring: it has an amazing taste and fragrance. But in addition to that, vanilla has a sort of comfort feel to it. Remember all those vanilla ice cream cones as a kid? Pure joy.
Try this rich and delicious smoothie. Hemp seeds or hemp seed protein powder is optional, but it's a great way to add some protein to the mix.
In your blender, Vita-mix or MagicBullet, add:
1 cup crushed or cubed ice
1 1/2 cups vanilla soy, rice or almond milk (or regular milk)
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen peach slices
1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
Blend until thick and creamy. Enjoy.
