Peach Pie Smoothie Recipe (Vegan, Paleo, Raw, Dairy free)


I'm loving smoothies in this July heat! I've made up a few that I keep in rotation that I love (like my green tea latte smoothie), and my husbands favorite my chocolate almond smoothie (recipe to come for that soon).  This one is definitely entering the rotation!


 I like to make up smoothies that don't have a ton of sugar (even if it is from fruit).  Because even to much fruit can be a bad thing, especially if your like me and having a few a day.  Since this recipe has only one peach and 1/2 a banana, it's not to bad with sugar.  I also like to make smoothies with a little interesting twist.  This one has it with a hint of pie spices.  This would make a great breakfast if you add a vanilla protein powder to it.  That's right pie for breakfast!

Peach Pie Smoothie Recipe
(makes about 2 cups)

Ingredients
  • 1/2 small ripe banana, peeled and frozen in 1" pieces (use about 3-4 pieces) you can save the rest for a smoothie the next day
  • 1 medium to large sized ripe organic (it's one of the dirty dozen) peach pitted, cut in half and frozen (cut into 1" chunks after frozen to make blending easier)
  • 1/2 cup of coconut, almond, or cashew milk
  • 3/4 cup of ice (about 5 ice cubes)
  • 1 tsp flax meal (ground flax)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of ginger
  • pinch of nutmeg
Directions 
  • Combine all ingredients in blender, pulse first until the ice is a bit broken up and then blend on a low speed working toward high.  Blend until smooth.  If you have been blending for a while with no movement add more "milk". Taste it, if it's not sweet enough add a little stevia or raw honey until desired taste is achieved
  • serve immediately.
