A thick, creamy, protein filled peach smoothie with all the flavors of peach pie! Serve it in a bowl topped with granola, almonds, and fresh peach slices for a fun and filling breakfast!
Hi everyone! Danae from Recipe Runner here again. I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer and hopefully you aren’t dealing with too hot of temperatures. We’ve had all sorts of odd weather here in Colorado. Everything from mid 90’s to upper 60’s. Can you believe it was just a couple weeks ago that I was walking around in a sweatshirt for a few days?! Anyways, the warm weather is back and that usually leaves me craving something cold for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Usually a smoothie is my go to way of cooling off and get a healthy meal in me. However I recently started trying smoothie bowls as a way to change things up and I am in love! I’m particularly in love with this Peach Pie Smoothie Bowl!
One of my favorite times of year here in Colorado is peach season and it’s finally here! Just the other week I was at Whole Foods when I spotted the display of Palisade peaches. I practically ran over to it and start filling a bag full of them. I had no idea what I was going to make with all these peaches, but I didn’t care, I’d been waiting all year for them.
When I got home I froze a couple of the peaches because I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat them all before they got too ripe. It was then that the idea for a peach smoothie came to mind. Of course I’m sure we’ve all had a peach smoothie before, so I wanted to do something a little different. Since I’m such a dessert lover as I’m sure many of you are, I figured why not try to make this smoothie taste like peach pie!
To give the smoothie that peach pie flavor I added in almond butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. To thicken it and give it lots of protein I used Greek yogurt and I also threw in a scoop of vanilla protein powder. The protein powder is optional and the smoothie tastes great with or without it. So here I was with this super thick smoothie and instead of putting it in a glass I poured it into a bowl, hence Peach Pie Smoothie Bowl. To finish it off I topped it with a fresh sliced peach, granola, and some toasted sliced almonds. The crunch was just what the smoothie bowl needed and it gave it that delicious streusel flavor that we all love about peach pie! If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to that slice of peach pie or just want a breakfast that makes you feel like you are eating dessert, then you have to give this Peach Pie Smoothie Bowl a try!
