[Nutrition] Peaches and Creme Smoothie

When it comes to smoothies...you need the good stuff. 

I've had a failed smoothie recipe or two in my lifetime. One of two things will likely have occurred to cause this fail: either I'll have "winged it" with random ingredients found at the bottom of my freezer or I'll have attempted to imitate a complicated 'Pinterest' recipe with a few seemingly innocent substitutions. Never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to mess up a smoothie! 

I've recently had a need for easy, 'on-the-go' nutrition as I've been training a client at 06:00 am. I've opted to fuel myself by sipping on a smoothie in order to be able train myself right after. I can't really have my usual eggs for breakfast while I'm at the gym now can I? I'm also not able to train with enough power and energy sans fuel, so training on an empty stomach doesn't work for me. I modify my smoothie depending on when I'm working out, which is why the almond butter is optional. You can add or remove the almond butter depending on your needs. 

Coconut milk makes this smoothie deliciously creamy!

Peaches and Crème Smoothie

Ingredients 

  • 1 scoop Vanilla Crème protein from Perfect Sports
  • 1/2 cup oats 
  • 1/2 banana (save the other half for tomorrow!)
  • 1 cup frozen peaches 
  • 2 tbsp. coconut milk 
  • 1/2-1 cup almond milk (depends on preferred thickness)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon, optional 
  • 2 tbsp. almond butter, optional

Directions 

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in blender until smooth.
  2. Enjoy :) 

Note: When I say 'coconut milk' I mean the real stuff! I suggest opting for the full-fat version. You can store the left over coconut milk in your fridge and use it for a multitude of other recipes (or smoothies!). 

Give this smoothie a go and let me know what you think.
