Peach Cobbler Smoothie
Like dessert in a jar! This Peach Cobbler Smoothie takes advantage of the awesome fresh peaches right now and gives you a solid excuse to have dessert for breakfast!
I love chocolate. I love salty-sweet desserts. But I really love fruit desserts. Pie, crisps, cobblers- anything that highlights seasonal produce. I might be biased but Utah peaches are the best. For a month every year, I eat them just about everyday. Usually standing over the sink with juice dripping down my arm and a smile on my face. I also preserve some into jam and slice and freeze peaches to use in smoothies and desserts during the winter. This smoothie is my (much healthier) take on peach cobbler. It has all the components of a cobbler minus the ice cream and super butter-y crispy crust and brown sugar……oh alright, it’s nothing like a bowl of warm cobbler. But it’s super tasty in it’s own right. Promise.
We’ve been eating our fair share of smoothies this summer and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon. The produce that we love to use in smoothies is at it’s peak and we’re taking full advantage. Thanks to the almond milk and plain kefir, this smoothie has a good punch of protein that will keep you fueled through your day. I used maple syrup to sweeten it up just a tad but feel free to use honey or some stevia if you’d rather. You could also use frozen peaches here but if you can get your hands on some juicy, ripe Utah peaches- that’s definitely the way to go!
Happy Monday, everyone. Hope you’re had a great weekend and as always, thanks for reading.Print
