Peaches & Cream Shake

fresh peaches

Peaches fresh from the orchard. Delicious.

Peaches in a creamy, dreamy shake. Even better.

When I first started dabbling in the vegan lifestyle, I came across a recipe for a chocolate shake at vegancoach.com (if you click the link, you’ll have to scroll down a bit to find the recipe).  Since then, I have made many modifications to this recipe and use it all the time whenever I need a healthy sweet treat.  When I got some fresh peaches, I added those into the mix and the peaches and cream shake was born.

This shake is truly delightful! I often make it just plain vanilla, but the subtle peach flavor is wonderful.  Unfortunately, whenever I’ve made it so far, it’s already down the hatch before I remember to take a photo!

Peaches & Cream Shake
Author: 
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-3
 
Ingredients
  • 1 c. almonds (raw is best!)
  • 3 c. ice
  • ¼ tsp. stevia powder
  • ½ tsp. vanilla (or use a little more - I usually don't measure!)
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¾ c. water (may need to add a little more later)
  • 2 fresh peaches (pits removed)
Instructions
  1. Put everything in a STRONG blender (like a Vitamix) and go! You may need to use the plunger to keep things blending.
  2. You may need to add a bit more water. I have added up to ½ cup extra.
Notes
*I'm sure you could use frozen peaches for this recipe if fresh are not available. For a variation, try adding a little cinnamon. *I didn't have a Vitamix when I first started making this, so I used a food processor. This works, but your shake won't be quite as smooth as it turns out in a strong blender. Also, if using a food processor, you'll probably need to do the ice and nuts separate before adding the other ingredients.
