Fresh peaches, yogurt, chia seeds, and a few spices are mixed to create the flavorful and nutrient-dense peach smoothie, which is perfect for breakfast. A powerful blender and a few simple ingredients will allow you to prepare a nutritious morning smoothie quickly.
Peach Smoothie Ingredients
I love this peach smoothie recipe because it's simple yet delicious. The ingredients are all familiar if you are aware of making it. I like to use my homemade cashew milk and yogurt, which I call my "healthy basics," because they make repeat appearances in many of my recipes. This smoothie is also versatile, as you can make it dairy or dairy-free depending on your dietary preferences. Trust me, this smoothie is good no matter which version you choose.
As for chia seeds, I have mentioned their benefits before when I made my chia seed pudding recipe. I always try to sprinkle chia seeds on different recipes, and this smoothie is no exception. The more you can incorporate chia seeds into your diet, the better. They are a great source of nutrients and add a nice texture to this smoothie.
How to Make This Peach Breakfast Smoothie
When I want a quick, easy, and delicious breakfast, I turn to my go-to peach smoothie recipe. The ingredients are simple, and you can easily make substitutions based on your dietary preferences. Personally, I like to use my homemade cashew milk and yogurt to keep it dairy-free, but you can use any milk and yogurt you prefer. To make this smoothie, I start by tossing all the ingredients, except for the chia seeds, into my trusty blender.
I blend it until it's smooth and creamy, then pour it into my favorite Le Parfait jars or mason jars. After that, I add a tablespoon of chia seeds and give it a good shake. Now, some people might ask if you can add the chia seeds directly into the blender. And while you certainly can, I like to add them after blending for more texture. Plus, it's easier to clean the blender container without the chia seeds sticking to the sides.
Fun fact: this peach smoothie recipe was actually inspired by several fellows of mine. When I was staying in my own apartment, I would get jars of peach yogurt from my friends and add a travel-sized packet of chia seeds for a complete breakfast. It's amazing how all of this can inspire and influence your cooking!
