PEACHES & "CREAM" SMOOTHIE or SMOOTHIE BOWLS

PEACHES & CREAM SMOOTHIE.jpg

My chicklets adore peaches, and we go through baskets of them during peach season!

This shake is loaded with all the goods — veggies, fiber, healthy fats, protein and adaptogens, too.  Yet it is still simple to make and tastes as beautiful as it looks.

Maca is a great superfood booster and its slightly earthy, butterscotch taste blends well with peach.  In addition to providing extra vitamins and minerals, maca is recognized as a herbal "adaptogen". It is believed to help the body deal with stress and anxiety while boosting mood, energy, concentration, and even libido.

For drinkable smoothies, I recommend using fresh peaches (above). Frozen peaches work better for thicker smoothie bowls (below).

For 2 servings, blend together until smooth:

  • 2 cups diced fresh or frozen peaches

  • 1 cup canned organic coconut milk (above), plain unsweetened dairy or nondairy kefir (below), or milk of choice

  • 1/2 to 1 cup frozen cauliflower rice (or steamed-then-frozen cauliflower for better digestion)

  • 1 scoop Nuzest Clean Lean vanilla or natural protein powder

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp gelatinized maca powder (optional)

  • 1 Tbsp coconut manna (omit if using coconut milk; adds healthy fat if using lower fat milk)

  • Lakanto monkfruit sweetener, honey (nonvegan), or sweetener of choice, adjusted to taste (optional)

  • optional toppings: fresh diced peaches (above) or grain-free granola, berries and bee pollen (below), or toppings of choice
