Imagine a smoothie that tastes just like a slice of fresh homemade peach pie. Now stop dreaming, because this thick and creamy smoothie is exactly that. It’s made with fresh or frozen peaches, rolled oats, cinnamon, Greek yogurt, and a dash of cinnamon, and the best part is you can prep it all ahead of time. Toss everything into a zip-top bag, then store in the freezer until you’re ready to blend. It’s the ultimate make-ahead breakfast that’s as delicious as it is convenient.

The Best Type of Peaches for Smoothies

If you’re starting with fresh peaches, both yellow and white peaches can be used. The biggest thing to keep in mind is ripeness. An easy way to check if they’re ripe is to give them a squeeze. The peaches should feel slightly soft and have a little bit of give. If the peaches are still hard, let them sit out at room temperature in a brown paper bag overnight.

Another thing to keep in mind is the pit. Peaches labeled “freestone” have pits that fall right off, making them easier to prep. Freestone peaches are the most common variety sold in grocery stores, so unless you’re purchasing from a farmers market you typically don’t need to worry. But if you want to double check, ask the produce employees to confirm that your peaches are freestone. It’ll make your smoothie prepping a tad bit easier.

If you’re starting with frozen peaches, measure out about one cup, which is the equivalent to two sliced fresh peaches.

Prep time 10 minutes

Makes 2 1/4 cups

Serves 1

Nutritional Info

Ingredients

  • 2

    medium peaches (preferably freestone), or 1 cup frozen sliced peaches

  • 1/3 cup

    old-fashioned rolled oats

  • 1/2 cup

    plain Greek yogurt

  • 1/4 teaspoon

    ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup

    unsweetened almond milk, plus more as needed

  • 1 tablespoon

    honey

  • 1/4 teaspoon

    vanilla extract

  • Garnish options: diced peaches, old-fashioned rolled oats, and ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Halve and pit 2 medium peaches, cut into 1/2-inch slices (about 1 cup), and add to a quart sized zip-top bag. (Alternatively, start with frozen peaches). Add 1/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats, 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Seal the bag and freeze until solid, at least 2 hours and up to 3 months.

  2. When ready to eat, transfer the frozen ingredients into a blender and add 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 tablespoon honey, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. (If the frozen fruit has stuck together, lightly hit it against the counter while still in the bag to break it up before adding it to the blender.)

  3. Blend on high speed until very smooth, 30 to 60 seconds, adding more almond milk if needed to thin it out. Pour into a tall glass and garnish with diced peaches, oats, and ground cinnamon, if desired. Serve immediately.
