Healthy Peaches and Cream Smoothie recipe

Hi guys,

I’ve had a long-standing love affair with peaches… long before I created this healthy Peaches and Cream Smoothie recipe.  My Grandmother Bea used to buy them by the wicker baskets from the Farmer’s Market just before we came up for our summer trip to Tennessee from Florida as kids.  As soon as my family arrived at her house I remember her slicing them perfectly in little glass bowls for us to eat.  After eating some fresh she’d keep slicing and add sugar to another batch and put them in the fridge.  After sitting for a few hours they were even sweeter and she’d serve them after dinner with vanilla ice cream for a perfectly Southern peaches and cream treat.  I could never get enough.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

After college, I moved to Peach Country.  I grew up in Florida, but my first job after I graduated was at a small TV station in Macon, Georgia.  I spent the entire two years I lived there absorbing TV knowledge like a sponge and trying to get my next job in the business.  One of my favorite parts of my time there was actually living in a place that was so well known for having such sweet peaches.

I had many assignments that consisted of covering peach festivals or going out to peach farms for stories.  One of the farms I would visit had peach ice cream, peach milkshakes, peach jelly, peach EVERYTHING!  It was basically a peachy good time. <— sorry, I can’t help the stupid puns sometimes… 

I would make any excuse I could think of to cover a story there.  It was such a pretty drive out to the country lined with fragrant peach trees and then you finally got there you got all that yummy peachy food.  It gave me a whole new appreciation of my favorite furry stone fruit.

So anytime I make something with peaches, I’m reminded of my time in Macon or my Grandmother’s sweet fruit.  Don’t you love how food can transport you back in time?

This Healthy Peaches and Cream Smoothie recipe is a little more modern than my Grandmother’s recipe but it takes me right back.  It’s packed with sweet plump peaches, greek yogurt for the cream and a dash of cinnamon for flavor.   It’s creamy, delish and super easy to make because it’s only 5 ingredients.

Freeze summer ripe peaches or buy the ones already frozen in the grocery store… either way, it’s a winner.  Then you just have to blend the other four ingredients until smooth.

I find the best summer recipes are really the easiest ones.  Don’t you?

So I’m totally channeling my inner former Georgia girl with this one!  Just call me a regular ole’ Georgia Peach.

      Such an amazing memory with the peaches. Definitely, good food memories take us back in time. I have a few of my own. The smoothie is amazing and worth a try for these summers. I have mostly tried the banana smoothie. This will be certainly something new and delicious to try. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Would fat free milk be a good substitute?

  26. Nancy July 9, 2015 at 9:27 am - Reply

    Do you know the calorie count on this? I’ve been doing some fun things with fresh fruits this summer in my smoothies as well but I try to watch the calorie count in them. If you haven’t tried it, you should use the coconut/almond blend. Still low cal but the mixture adds a nice twist. And in lieu of yogurt, I use banana to give it the consistency.

    • JulieWunder July 9, 2015 at 8:09 pm - Reply

      It should be about 250 if you use 0% fat greek yogurt and the almond milk with 30 calories per cup 🙂 So I would be careful with this one!
      I love using a banana for a creamy smoothie too! I tested it that way with this one and I turned out a little too banana-y. The peach did not mask it well. Still tasty delicious… but wasn’t the straight up peachy taste I was looking for!
      Thanks for stopping by today and for the great ideas!

      VERY old school! I sadly spent the entire 2 years I was there trying to figure out my next move! I did like being so close to Atlanta though!

    What a fun reminder for you! I am not a huge fan of peaches, unfortunately, but I know a lot of people who are!

    When I was a child we lived in northern Georgia and on summer vacation (to Florida), we traveled through “Peach Country”. The scent of peaches filled the air and you have brought back to mind those heavenly experiences.
    Pen of my favorite things about Georgia is the way they named their counties… Peach, Crisp, Bacon… makes me eager for some fresh peaches NOW. This smoothie of yours looks yummy. Thank you, Julie.

    I really enjoy all things ” peachy ” when the peaches are right out of the orchard. I have family in South Carolina so I often get freshly picked ripe peaches and they are awesome. Thanks for sharing your trip down memory lane.
