Enjoy the days when you’ve bought a box of peaches from the farmers market or Trader Joe’s.
Four or five peaches in a smoothie for breakfast and a single for a snack wrapped in basil later in the day.
This smoothie uses frozen bananas which are a great replacement for ice. They add a little bit of flavor and a cold creaminess that makes for a perfect texture.
Peach Cobbler Smoothie
- 4- 6 pitted peaches
- 2 frozen bananas
- 2 pitted Medjool dates
- dash of ground cloves
- dash of vanilla powder or splash of extract
- dash of licorice root
- dash of sea salt
- water to desired thick or thinness
- Add ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Makes 2, 24+ oz smoothies.
I opted for cloves instead of cinnamon to use a neglected spice and because I do really like cloves! I hate licorice candy, but there’s something about the spice that’s more appealing and a few sprinkles in a smoothie just add something special. Vanilla powder adds that ‘baked’ quality that makes you think you really are drinking a cobbler. And sea salt rounds everything out by bringing out the sweetness and adding healthy needed minerals to your morning.
Enjoying a beautiful orange-cream smoothie also means you won’t get asked “what are you drinking??”, masked by that weird constipated face, trying to figure out what shade of green is truly edible. 🙂
