Smoothies are seriously my favorite, easy weekday breakfast. I wake up, practice yoga and immediately head into the kitchen to throw together a delicious, nourishing smoothie made from whatever I have on hand and it always keeps me full till lunch!
I almost always have a quart or two of my homemade almond milk on hand for just this reason and I let the fruit and veggies we get from our CSA box determine what the flavor of the day will be.
We’ve been getting these beautiful, organic juicy, sweet peaches from Tony, our farmer, and they have been an absolute treat, while we are waiting for our own peach tree to do it’s thing.
This Peaches and Cream Smoothie is creamy, rich and so easy to throw together. I add a small amount of raw honey when I make my almond milk and the peaches we have been getting are quite sweet, so I find no additional sweetener is needed, but you can use your own judgement.
If you don’t have coconut butter you could add a small amount of coconut oil, coconut cream or nut butter in place. But I highly recommend having some homemade coconut butter on hand at all times, it is such a treat and my new obsession.
By the way, peaches are a new addition to my life after about 4 years of not eating them (long story), I kinda can’t believe what I have been missing out on. I have to say, I forgot just how amazing peaches are.
What’s your favorite way to enjoy peaches?
