Creamy Peach Pie Smoothie Bowl

Creamy Peach Pie Smoothie Bowl

I have never really been a big breakfast person.

Don't get me wrong, I love a mean BRUNCH. I actually live for brunch, whether it's from our own kitchen at home with Michael or out alongside a Bloody Mary. 

But eating first thing in the morning has never been my forte. I'm pretty sure I've said it before, but I am simply just not a morning person. Although, since living with Michael I am getting {slightly} better at it. Lately, I've been starting my mornings with some warm water, lemon and organic apple cider vinegar - after a few weekends of indulging a little too much, my body needs the gentle morning detox. 

Then I usually follow that with a cup of coffee {black or just a touch of coconut creamer}, or my latest obsession, goldenmilk lattes. More on that and a recipe to come soon! But alas, I digress. 

In general, me and a heavy meal before noon just don't mix. But since I'm up by 6:30/7:00am, I need to give my body a little something to rev it up. I do love me an extra THICK smoothie. Something simple but filled with fiber, healthy fats, hydrating fruits and/or greens.

I've also been experimenting a lot with adding ingredients that will serve my body well, whether that's anti-inflammatory to help keep my migraines at bay, flax to help with digestion or superfoods like maca, cacao and chia seeds. 

So as I look to give my body its own mini detox and reset this week, I reached for ingredients that are easy on the tummy yet still offer nutrients that will fuel me well. Plus, aren't peaches pretty much the epitome of summer?! One of my fave summer fruits!

This smoothie is so thick, I decided it was necessary to scoop it into a bowl and top it with some fresh blueberries and figs, because I'm classy AF like that. 

Digestion-Friendly Peach Pie Smoothie:

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups frozen peaches
  • 1/2 a frozen banana
  • 1/2 tbsp organic ground flaxseed meal 
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • Optional: 1 scoop vegan vanilla protein {I use Trader Joe's Organic Pea Protein}

NOTE: Depending upon your blender, I would recommend you start by blending the almond milk and peaches first, because once you add in the banana it will be thick!

Blend nut milk, peaches, banana, ground flaxseed and cinnamon until well mixed and smooth. Lastly, add in crushed ice and blend. If needed, you can add a splash more milk.

Top with your favorite fresh fruit, hemp hearts and chia seeds for an extra boost of fiber, omegas and healthy fats!
