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
