I am peach lover and will buy fresh peaches whenever I see them. And before this summer ends, I want to create few recipes with peaches. I made peach upside-down cake, peach crumble smoothie and peach chia strawberry yogurt popsicles. I decide to make this peach crumble smoothie. I am yet to decide on a peach pound cake and muffin may be something else.
Tomorrow is Onam harvest festival in Kerala, South India, the place where I was born and grew up. This year festival got lost some charm as a week age, the state was ravaged by one of the worst floods in a century. Most of state is destroyed, people lost everything lot of damages to infrastructure. When Nature take her fury on the people she is merciless. My family there is safe still lot of people got directly hit. I know as human being we will survive and get back to normal damage is done in a few hours, but recovery takes long time. Last year my city Houston got hit with Harvey and it is still recovering. I am going to make simple vegetarian feast tomorrow just to celebrate Onam.
Coming back to this Peach crumble smoothie, it is just a simple recipe and you only need peach, banana and a sweetener. What makes crumble is it topping with nuts and oatmeal and butter. Since it is smoothie we are only adding creamy cashew nuts, vanilla extract and oatmeal. This is delicious smoothie and best on the go one. Just mix everything blend it and drink it. I used raw cashew nuts that requires soaking, if you do not want to soak then add little cashew milk.
This is a good smoothie with sweetness from peaches, nuttiness from cashew, crunchiness from oatmeal who doesn’t like to drink crumble through the straw. I used fresh peaches. You can make this year around with frozen peaches too. If are into peaches like me then give this one a try, I bet you will love it.
