This smoothie is one way to make it feel like summer all year long. Peach season is a magical part of the late-summer harvest in New Jersey. If you don’t have fresh peaches, you can use frozen peaches for this smoothie. Pro tip: Frozen fruit is picked at the height of ripeness. Frozen peaches will also make your smoothie cold, so you won’t need ice cubes.

The addition of maca, an adaptogen known to boost your energy, is optional. It's not for everyone. Do your research before adding maca to your smoothie.
