My mom gave me some end of season peaches a few days ago, and I’ve been chowing down on them the past couple days. I LOVE the flavor of fresh ripe peaches in season. I decided I needed to throw a couple in my morning smoothie. Yum! I combined a couple peaches with some chia seeds, hemp seeds, frozen bananas and a little cinnamon. The smoothie turned out delicious so I thought I’d share.
- 2 peaches (peeled and seed removed)
- ½ frozen banana
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- about 8 ounces of water
- Place the peaches, frozen banana, chia seeds, hemp seeds, water, and about ½ of the cinnamon in a high speed blender. I use a Nutri-Bullet, but you can use whatever you have.
- Pulse the blender a couple times then blend for about 30 seconds.
- Pour into a glass and sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon on top.
We have a few more peaches, so I’m planning on making this a couple more times (hopefully) before we run out. Peach season never lasts long enough for me. Grocery store peaches just aren’t the same!
If you want a creamier smoothie you can use your favorite milk (almond, cashew, coconut, or whatever you prefer) instead of water or for half of the water. Another quick tip, I like to freeze overripe bananas and have them on hand for my morning smoothies. I tear them into about 1 inch sections, then I put about 3 to 4 sections in my smoothie.
