Peach Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

This is one of my favorite times of year because Colorado’s very own Palisade peaches are in season!! They are the sweetest and most delicious peaches I’ve ever tasted and I can’t help myself from eating multiple per day. I was tempted to buy a whole crate of them at the farmers’ market yesterday, but luckily for our fridge, I showed some rare  self-restraint and only bought the large bag 🙂 I was excited to use them for breakfast this morning, especially after the hot days we’ve been having! DSC04426August in Colorado = HOT SUNNY Days. And since our AC is currently out of order, the days and nights are even hotter!  I just can’t bring myself to eat a warm breakfast when it’s so hot. Instead, I feel like eating something light and fresh and cool. DSC04419This smoothly bowl is the perfect combo! It’s fresh, it’s cool, it’s simple to make yet has a complex flavor and it includes Palisade Peaches!! The recipe is for 1 and it is easily doubled for 2, 4, ( …6,8 – who do we appreciate!?).

Ingredients

  • blueberries, frozen, 1 cup
  • fresh peach, 2 small
  • nut butter, 2 tbsp (I used fresh ground almond)
  • coconut milk (or milk of your choice) l, 1/4 cup
  • banana, 1 large
  • granola, 1/4 cup (I used Just BE Kitchen’s – such good Colorado-grown Grain-free Products!!)

Directions:

  • blend blueberries, 1/4 of the banana, nut butter, 1 peach and coconut in food processor or blender. Blend until smooth and well mixed
  • slice remaining banana and dice extra peach
  • pour smoothie into bowl. Top with banana, peach and granola
  • serve and enjoy!

Notes:

  • for a nut free version, simply use a granola without nuts and omit the nut butter from the smoothie

  1. Yummy, I love peaches too. Season is almost over here in Holland. I have stored tons in my freezer though 🙂

    1. Yum! Is there a specific region in Holland where the peaches grow? Or is it all over? We have about another month of their season but I’ve been thinking of ways I could save them to enjoy throughout the year… freeze them, make preserves, make a huge cobbler! Frozen peaches would be perfect for these smoothie bowls!

      1. Most of the peaches we get are imported. Freezing works really great for me. Peachy dessert for Christmas maybe 🙂

        1. That makes sense 🙂 enjoy them!
