Peach Oat Smoothie

Vegan smoothie with peaches, rolled oats, chia seeds, and a touch of sweetness from OJ and banana. Creamy, nutritious and lovely for breakfast or snack.

Makes 2 servings; 142 calories per serving


2 ripe peaches, quartered, pits removed
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup rolled oats (gluten free for G-free eaters)
1/2 frozen banana (peeled before freezing)
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
OPTIONAL: 1 Tbsp agave, maple syrup or stevia for added sweetness (or honey for non-vegan)


Add all ingredients to a blender and let set for 5-10 minutes so the oats and chia seeds can soak. Then blend until smooth.
To thicken, add another quarter-half a frozen banana. To thin, add more almond milk or OJ.
Taste and adjust flavor as needed. I added a touch of agave.
Serve immediately.

(Notes:Nutrition information is a rough estimate for 1 smoothie; half the recipe.
Substitute nectarines for peaches for a very similar taste.)
