Peach and Oat Smoothie

This Peach and Oat Smoothie has frozen peaches, banana, almond milk, yogurt, and oats lightly sweetened with maple syrup. It’s a quick and easy on-the-go breakfast and a great way to start the day!

It’s the peak of peach season here, and we are lucky enough to have a peach orchard right down the road from us. The peaches are so fresh, juicy, and sweet!

I always buy extra and freeze them to use in recipes throughout the rest of the year. These Peach and Oat Smoothies are one of my favorites!

I am a big-time smoothie drinker (this will be my fifth smoothie recipe so far on the blog, and there will definitely be more to come!). The reason I like smoothies so much is I’m more of a fruit drinker than a fruit eater.

I will rarely eat a piece of fruit on its own, but I just love a fruit smoothie, so it’s pretty much how I get most of the fruit into my diet.

Plus, smoothies are so quick and easy. All you need is about five minutes (probably even less) to whip these babies up. What a life saver on a busy morning!

I love adding oats to my smoothies because, not only are oats good for you, they make the smoothie thick and filling. On days when I don’t have time to eat a full breakfast, an oat smoothie is my go-to because it helps keep me feeling full until lunch.

INGREDIENTS YOU NEED:

  • Unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or the milk of your choice)
  • Frozen peaches
  • Banana (frozen or fresh)
  • Low-fat vanilla yogurt (or peach yogurt)
  • Oats (regular or quick)
  • Vanilla extract
  • Maple syrup

You can switch up the milk if you want. I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk because it doesn’t have a ton of calories, but you could use regular milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, soy milk…whatever your favorite is!

I always have vanilla yogurt in my fridge, so that’s what I usually use, but if you really want to amp up the peach flavor even more, go ahead and use peach yogurt!

EQUIPMENT NEEDED:

  • Blender

HOW DO YOU FREEZE PEACHES?

If you want to stock up, freezing peaches is easy! Here’s how to do it:

  • Peel your peaches and remove the pits. You don’t have to blanch peaches before freezing them, although it can make them easier to peel. I’ve never had a terrible enough time peeling my peaches to go through the blanching process. Up to you.
  • Slice the peaches or cut them into chunks.
  • Toss with lemon juice (this helps keep the color nice – use 1 tablespoon per pound of peaches).
  • Spread the peaches out on a large tray or baking sheet covered with parchment paper (keep them as separate as you can).
  • Freeze until firm (this step makes sure that the peaches don’t freeze together in one clump, which will make them easier to use later).
  • Place in freezer bags, remove as much air as possible, and freeze until ready to use. Your frozen peaches should last about 12 months.

For an easy and delicious variation, replace the vanilla extract with almond extract. Really yummy!!

Having a smoothie for breakfast is like drinking a good-for-you milkshake for breakfast! Both the kids and grown-ups are sure to love these!

I would not add the banana next time because that’s all I could taste, and it was plenty sweet enough where I think it would be okay without it. Everything else was great though

Thanks for trying my recipe, Cali! I love adding banana to my smoothies for the creaminess it provides. But yes, if the banana flavor is more than you'd like, you can definitely leave it out and add more peaches in its place. I'm sure that would be delicious too!
