Peach Crisp Smoothie
This recipe has all the cinnamony sweet goodness of peach crisp in the form of a cool, creamy, good-for-you smoothie!
Today I have the privilege of guest posting for the lovely Emily of Jelly Toast. You may remember her from those weekend-worthy Stockyard Pony Cocktails she shared a few weeks back. Emily share a smoothie recipe on her blog every Saturday. At this point, I consider her the smoothie master. I mean, anyone who can find a way to sneak radishes into a smoothie deserves the title of master, right?
It’s been a pretty sweet week around these parts, what with the cobbler and the birthday celebrations and the 4th of July cookouts. After a few days of indulging, I was ready to fill up on some fruits and veggies. I know smoothies are a great way to do this, but the truth is, they aren’t exactly my specialty. I make a pretty tasty green smoothie every now and then, but I’ve never gotten to the place where a smoothie can be a meal replacement. Every time I have a smoothie for breakfast, I feel like something is missing. I find myself staring at the bottom of my empty glass, filled with sorrow that breakfast is already over.
But, inspired by Emily’s genius, I determined I would make a smoothie worthy of more than just snack time. I wanted it to be satisfying and filling, while still retaining all of its health benefits.
I’m happy to say this Peach Crisp Smoothie totally fits the bill. It’s simple peachy goodness lightly sweetened with maple syrup and topped with a crunchy cinnamon granola you can make in your skillet in under 10 minutes. How’s that for a win?

That looks delicious!
Holy shizz, that looks incredible, Courtney! Peach crisp in a SMOOTHIE?! I love it! Heading over to read your guest post.
I got SO excited when I saw this recipe–I’m the exact same way, we need texture here, people! I do love adding oats to my smoothie to add a bit more ‘chunk,’ but I prefer your way 😉 off to read on Jelly Toast, I just found her blog and love it!
Isn’t she great? I love her blog! And I’m glad I’m not the only one who needs to chew something if it’s going to be considered a meal.
Such perfect flavors for summer, love that granola to top it all off!
Thank you! I can’t get enough peaches this time of year!
This smoothie looks really really good! I don’t think I would ever want to reach the bottom of that glass while drinking it…
It’s always sad when you take the last sip. 🙂
