Peach Pie Smoothie


July 4, 2012

This peach pie smoothie tastes like a melted slice of the best peach pie in a glass.

Those of you who have been following me for a while are aware of my penchant for pie-in-a-glass smoothies. My apple piepecan pie, sweet potato piepumpkin pie, cherry pie, blueberry pie, and lemon cheesecake smoothies are s’blended.

I love pie-in-a-glass smoothies because they satisfy a craving for a piece of pie without the need to bake. They’re also healthier.

The secret to nailing the buttery pasty flavor of vegan pie smoothie is to blend in raw cashews and rolled oats. Then add your fruit and your aromatics. I’m using cinnamon and nutmeg, and I always add a splash of vanilla extract. As peaches vary in quality, the dried apricots punch up the peachy flavor. You could also use canned peaches in natural juice and add ice. Frozen peaches (even those frozen at the peak of ripeness and flavor) often lack the depth of flavor required. You may find you need to add 3 cups of frozen peaches to get the peachy flavor that you want. Peaches vary so dramatically in quality.

For the smoothest texture (particularly with a conventional blendersoak your cashews in filtered water for 2 hours then drain (and discard the soaking liquid), or cover with boiling water for 10 minutes, then drain. I also soak the rolled oats to soften them, and soak the dried apricots to make them pulverize more easily. Enjoy!

*Probiotic Powder – I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.

*Celtic Sea Salt – I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
