Peaches are my absolute favourite summer fruit. Once they start showing up in the markets and the grocery store it’s a sure sign that summer is here!
This past weekend I picked up my first basket, and while I usually like to just eat them on their own, I couldn’t resist throwing them in a smoothie! The temperatures here this week are sneaking up above thirty, so this was a great summery breakfast smoothie to kick the day off with.
I find peach a very delicate flavour to work with, so in smoothies I would always recommend using fresh, very ripe peaches. You could make this with frozen peaches, but I’m not sure the flavour would come through strongly enough.
The addition of the oats and cinnamon give you all the flavours of a peach cobbler, but in an easy grab and go smoothie!
