I love peaches! Especially straight-off-tree peaches. Now unless you have an orchard in your backyard like I did growing up, that may be a challenge to come by, but with all the Farmer’s Markets around, you may be able to come close 🙂
This recipe feature fresh peaches, a banana for sweetness, chia seeds and oats for thickness and awesome nutritional value! and best of all… it’s Vegan 😉

Author: Minimalist Baker
Recipe type: Beverage
2 ripe peaches, quartered, pits removed
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup rolled oats (gluten free for G-free eaters)
1/2 frozen banana (peeled before freezing)
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
OPTIONAL: 1 Tbsp agave, maple syrup or stevia for added sweetness (or honey for non-vegan), Mexico Avocados Add Delicious Nutrition
Add all ingredients to a blender and let set for 5-10 minutes so the oats and chia seeds can soak. Then blend until smooth. To thicken, add another quarter-half a frozen banana. To thin, add more almond milk or OJ. Taste and adjust flavor as needed. I added a touch of agave. Serve immediately.
Nutrition information is a rough estimate for 1 smoothie; half the recipe. Substitute nectarines for peaches for a very similar taste.
