Peach Pie Smoothie

Here’s the thing. I’m not a big fruit eater.

I try to be, I really, really, do.  But given the choice between an apple and a chocolate chip cookie…well, sorry, it’s cookie all the way.

Or pie.


Last week, we had a drop in temperature here, at least for the short-term.  We had one day in the mid 60’s…with some light rain.  It felt heavenly after the summer of insanely high temperatures we’ve had here over the past three months.   It was cool enough that I actually had to get out a pair of jeans…jeans that felt just a little bit snug when I buttoned them.

This is what happens when you spend the summer “sampling” things like Almond Joy Blondies and Biscoff Cheeseballs.

 

So, I decided it was time for action.  More fruit, less sugar.

My problem is that I can’t give up the sweet stuff.  It’s ugly when I try, folks.

This smoothie is the best of both worlds…a drink that tastes like pie, but with lots of fruit.

  2. I am having the same problem with my jeans! Too much sampling and not enough working out! But I can’t give up the sugar either…I get cranky:-) But a yummy peach pie shake like this would have me dropping the crankies pretty quick!!! It looks fabulous girl!!!

  3. Man oh Man……. this looks killer.

  4. I actually LOVE fruit. And veggies. Oh, and sugar. Drinkable peach pie? Mmmmmm you are the yummy drink fairy!

    • Hee, I love fruit, too–just not as much as all of the other stuff! =) But I can definitely handle it in a drink that tastes like this!

  5. I have the same problem! Thankfully, I like some fruit a LOT so when we have it on hand, I eat a ton of it (I’m looking at you, watermelon and raspberries!) but otherwise, there’s a ton of junkfood consumption here. This smoothie looks marvelous, Ashley! So fruity and thick, but still sweet. The graham cracker on top looks fantastical. I love the crunch. And I’m SO jealous of the rain you had, even if for one day. I’m DYING for fall!

    • We do eat a LOT of watermelon here in the summer, and fresh summer berries (particularly raspberries and blueberries) are my favorite! I just wish I was more prone to eating it as a snack than I am cookies or cake, ha!

  6. Peaches are my favorite fruit. And peach pie is my favorite pie. So this would be a WINNER with me! I must try it.

  7. peach pie is my #1 favorite dessert EVER. And smoothies make a regular appearance in my diet as my training kicks into gear. :) Adding a graham cracker to a smoothie! I’ve seen that on Averie Cooks before!

    • I’m going to attempt a peach pie this weekend with my bushel of peaches…I’m not much of a pie baker, so we’ll see how it goes! I’d actually intended to use some Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal in these smoothies–until I realized I was out. :-( Fortunately, we always have garaham crackers on hand, so I subbed one of those instead. And Averie’s smoothies always look amazing–as does everything else she posts!

  8. I started adding graham crackers to my smoothies recently – my cinn raisin bread smoothie and coconut cream pie smoothie. Love the flavor it adds. I bet this is great!

    • Eek? A coconut cream pie smoothie? I’m going to have to go find that recipe ASAP! I love anything coconut, and your recipes are always phenomenal, so I have no doubt it is fabulous!! I loved the addition of the cracker in the smoothie–I wanted something “crust-like” and since I was out of the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal I’d planned to use, in went the cracker! Definitely a nice addition, for not a lot of extra calories.

  9. Trying to do smoothies for breakfast and I’m with you on fruit versus something really sugary sweet, sugary sweet wins every time. Pinning.

  10. Okay, I totally need to try this – but not peach. I’ll try anything but peach! :) Love the method, and it’s so pretty…even though it’s peach. (Too funny…I talk all about my peach issues tomorrow. :)

  11. Food blogging is hard on the figure, isn’t it? I think even when you are cooking healthy recipes, it’s a bit hard what with making and sampling the recipes so many times and the focus on food. Peach smoothie sounds good-probably I should freeze some peaches so I can have peach smoothies again this winter.
