This fresh peach smoothie makes for a delicious (and well rounded) breakfast smoothie as it’s blended with yogurt, chia seeds and a few spices.
I love going to the farmer’s market each week and finding new produce that just came into season. Fruits and veggies that weren’t there last week…but bam, they’re there now. So imagine my excitement when I saw mounds of fresh peaches piled high on folding tables, which just came into season in California. Massive happy dance.
There so much you can do with peaches, from sweet to savory dishes (and I’m sure I’ll have more of those for you) – but today we’re focusing on breakfast. And in particular, starting your day off right with the most delicious peach breakfast smoothie.
Watch me make this peach breakfast smoothie recipe:
The ingredients in this peach smoothie recipe are simple and if you’ve been following my blog or YouTube channel for the last few months, you’ll see some familiar faces. Namely, my homemade cashew milk and homemade yogurt. Some of what I call my “healthy basics” which always make repeat appearances throughout many recipes on this blog.
You can make this peach smoothie with dairy or dairy-free (here’s my dairy-free coconut yogurt recipe), depending on your dietary preference, so it’s a smoothie for everyone. And a darn good one at that!
Next week, I’ll be writing a blog post on the health benefits of chia seeds, so keep your eyes peeled. You’ve heard me mention a few of those benefits when I made chia seed pudding, but I thought I’d write a full post for you guys. The more you can sprinkle chia seeds on a variety of recipes, the better.
To make this peach smoothie you literally just toss all the ingredients, minus the chia seeds, together in a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy, then divide the smoothie between two mason jars or the Le Parfait jars I use (which I love), add a tablespoon of chia seeds and shake, shake, shake. Could you add the chia seeds to the blender? Absolutely. I just like to add them after for more texture.
As a side note, when I was traveling Lisbon, I had my own apartment. So I’d buy several jars of peach yogurt from the organic supermarket and add one travel-sized packet of chia seeds and stir it all together for a complete breakfast. So this peach smoothie recipe was actually inspired by that. One more reason to love travel.
You can drink the smoothie right away or chill it for 5-10 minutes and let the seeds thicken it up a bit. Either way, it’s delicious. And the perfect healthy, seasonal, smoothie breakfast.
