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.
This THM E smoothie is packed with protein and tastes like peach pie! A wonderful way to use up fresh or frozen peaches.
- 1 ripe peach, peeled and pitted
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese
- 1 Tbsp vanilla whey protein powder
- 1 tsp xylitol (or 1/2 tsp of Gentle Sweet)
- 2 Tbsp old fashioned gluten-free oats
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- sprinkle of nutmeg
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cashew milk
- 2 ice cubes
- Add everything to the blender and blitz until smooth and frothy. Pour into a large glass and enjoy!
You can still make this smoothie, even if you don't have protein powder. Just up the cottage cheese a little to increase your protein and add a splash of vanilla extract.
