DR.OZ PEACHES AND CREAM SMOOTHIE BREAKFAST SHAKE RECIPE
We get so many requests for peach smoothie recipes, we had to try this non-dairy peaches and cream smoothie shake recipe from Dr. Oz! Creamy, rich and easy to throw together, you will also love the spicy nature of this smoothie. From Dr. Oz’s clean detox plan breakfast shakes, this vegan smoothie recipe makes for a perfect healthy fat and high-protein breakfast. For a post-workout shake, use an unsweetened milk substitute to reduce the healthy fats and calories. It’s cool, subtly sweet and reminiscent of the holidays. It can be prepped in advance and ready when you need it. We adapted this peaches and cream smoothie ever so slightly – chia seeds instead of the optional ground flax seeds since our recipe testers said it affected the flavor too much, and a little more peaches and less coconut milk since our high powered blender can handle it! A Blendtec or Vitamix gives you a nice milkshake like texture, but don’t fret, this and other Dr. Oz smoothie recipes can easily be made in a “regular” blender. Just finely chop or grate the fresh ginger and follow these blending tips.

* We don't recommend adding flaxseed to this smoothie, it changes the flavor too much. Try chia seeds instead for fiber rich omega 3s

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS ABOUT PEACHES
Peaches: You will find the best peaches during Peach Season running from June to the end of August. Be sure to add peaches to your grocery list! Peach is considered a low sugar fruit and GREAT for low sugar smoothie recipes. 1 medium peach contains only 13 grams of sugar and are also a good source of fiber, protein, potassium and Vitamin A & C. Peaches contain natural alpha hydroxy acids to exfoliate and cleanse your skin, as well as Vitamins A and C to strengthen and protect it – both eating and topical application will have benefits, so dig in during peach season and give your skin a glowing boost.
