Peach Pie Smoothie | THM: E

In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m all about pie, late summer fruits, and E meals this week (mostly due to Serene and Pearl’s most recent Poddy which explains the difference between keto and THM, and why our bodies still need those life-giving carbs!). There’s nothing like fresh, in-season produce to inspire creativity in the kitchen! God is so good to give us these gifts.

Peaches are the most recent local fruit to hit the farmers markets in our area. I managed to sneak one away to use in this recipe yesterday afternoon, while our kids inhaled the others. This Peach Pie Smoothie tastes like a refreshing version of an American favorite. A solid Trim Healthy Mama-friendly E, you can enjoy this protein-packed smoothie as a meal or snack.

Normally, I post recipes that don’t use special ingredients, but this one makes use of vanilla whey protein powder. If you don’t have it on hand, that’s okay; just up amount of cottage cheese and use a splash of vanilla extract instead. Or, if you have collagen on hand, you could add a scoop of that, too.

Yield: 1 serving

    • Hi Angela, if I was dairy-free, I think I would add a scoop of collagen, a little nut milk, and a teeny bit of xanthum gum in place of cottage cheese. The collagen would give you protein, the nut milk would add moisture, and the xanthum gum would help thicken things up a bit.

  1. While I usually appreciate Serene and Pearl’s podcasts, this one left me frustrated. Unfortunately, they are very uninformed and misguided concerning the ketogenic diet. Most of their assertions came from taking the stereotypical assumptions that people make when they do not understand the science behind the body and how it processes different foods, and how different bodies (say, those with diabetes) process different foods.

    Please do not take their word as truth for this particular podcast. I don’t think they should have given an opinion on something they know so little about. It was a little embarrassing to hear.

    Having said that, your recipes are some of my favorites and you have a real knack for putting together delicious foods! This looks no different.

    • Thanks for sharing your perspective, Rachel. I know people who have had their lives transformed by Keto, so I definitely think it has its place. If I didn’t get so hangry without carbs, I’d probably be there too….fatty food is amazing and delicious!

      I’m glad you’re enjoying the recipes! Thanks for the encouragement!

  2. Oh my gosh! I just made this EXCEPT I didn’t have a peach so I subbed half a banana to keep it to an “E” meal. It was so good. I kept the rest of the ingredients exactly. Thank you so much for sharing your recipes Jacinda. I’m fairly new to THM and it’s so great to have recipes that taste so good and are GOOD for us. Thanks again!

  3. This is my hubby’s most requested smoothie!!!! 😀

    I sometimes modify it to use my homemade kefir.
    -I double the protein powder and use 1 cup kefir in place of the cottage cheese, nut-milk and ice cubes. Sometimes I sneak in a tsp of Baobab. 😉
