Guys, today I’m sharing a Peaches and Cream smoothie bowl that tastes so heavenly I almost feel like I’m eating dessert. Almost.
After years of baking my Peaches and Cream Loaf from the Best Snacks Cookbook it was about time I made the flavors I love a bit more practical for a quick snack or meal. So continuing in my smoothie bowl series I bring you one of my latest obsessions: the Peaches and Cream Smoothie Bowl.
Why do I love smoothie bowls so much? Well, they are super easy to make, I feel like I’m eating a meal because it’s eating with a spoon, and I get to top it with crunchy things.
And guys, you know I’m all about the toppings. Ha!
The thing is, that most of the time when I ask people what their go-to smoothie recipe is they tell me it’s strawberry banana or strawberry something. Sure, I love a good Strawberry Smoothie Bowl but it can quickly feel repetitive.
I almost always have fresh strawberries and blueberries in my fridge along with a variety of frozen fruits in my freezer. So why do I get stuck in a strawberry-blueberry smoothie rut? Well, it is convenient, and that’s what us busy moms are looking for, convenience, right?
Probably because I don’t have to think about anything. Strawberries, bananas, milk, protein, repeat. But… this peach smoothie bowl is equally as convenient to make because it’s as simple as remembering to grab the bag of frozen peaches out of the freezer that is sitting right next to the frozen strawberries!
Check out how easy it is to make in this short video.
My youngest loves to make smoothies as well even though my bigger ones say that they rather take the smoothie frozen like a popsicle. Kids, you know? Same recipe, same taste, they just like it their own way.
But when you have a picky eater, whatever gets them to eat more fruits and veggies and this smoothie is perfect for that! It’s lower in sugar than most smoothie bowls too, so it’s a great snack option.
So back to the toppings. For me, the crunchier, the better and I like to keep it a little lower in sugar but minimizing added fruit and putting nuts, seeds, and other good-for-you healthy fats on top.
