Creamy, full of protein and tastes like peach pie! This Oatmeal Peach Pie Smoothie is the perfect breakfast or snack on a hot summer day!
Summer is in full swing and we’re just two days away from it being July. Back when I lived in Arizona I dreaded summer, especially July and August. On top of it being boiling hot, the humidity would also spike and make it downright miserable. Even after the sun would go down the temperatures would still hover around 90 degrees. I would be up and out the door for my morning run at 5:00am and still be drenched in sweat when I got home. Summer running in Colorado is a whole different story. 60 degree mornings with a cool breeze, it’s pretty close to perfect!
Even though the morning weather is gorgeous here, I still need a breakfast to cool me off and power me up for the day after running. Here is where my favorite summer smoothie enters the picture, Oatmeal Peach Pie Smoothie! I’m just a tad early with the peach recipe extravaganza, but I couldn’t resist. When I saw a sign the other day that Colorado peaches would be here soon, I nearly squealed with excitement. Until they are here, I used a bag of frozen ones and they work just as well.
The Oatmeal Peach Pie Smoothie is just the right balance of carbs and protein that I need to recharge after a run. The bonus of course is that it tastes like a slice of peach pie, guilt-free of course. The smoothie is loaded with peaches, Greek yogurt, cinnamon, almond butter and Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk. With Almond Breeze being an official sponsor of team USA Volleyball it’s the perfect time to serve up your best, grab some almond milk and make this smoothie!

Oh my gosh!!! I want to lick the blender!!! This is delicious!!! And I didn’t add almond butter – was going to add walnuts, but forgot; otherwise, followed the recipe to a “T”. I am going to try with apples and other fruits as well. Oh my!!! Still slurping up every last drop from my tumbler.
I’m so glad you liked the smoothie Sandra, thanks for trying the recipe! :-)

I love adding oats to my smoothies! This looks like a perfect post-run smoothie!
Thanks Jessica! I’ve been loving having one of these after my run!
Patty Contreras says
I’m definitely making this recipe, it sound delightful! Southern California has been pretty hot these past few weeks, and yes it makes it difficult to run. :(
Survey happily completed. :)
I’ve heard about the miserable heat in Southern California Patty, I can only imagine how hard it’s making your runs. Hopefully you’ll get a break from it soon! Thanks so much for taking the time to fill out the survey, I appreciate it!

I’m still suffering through the sweltering AZ summers. When will I learn to get the heck out of here?!?! Ha! This smoothie looks delicious. It would be the perfect way to cool off in this triple digit heat.
Ha! I sympathize with you Allison. 29 years was enough for me and now I’m a wimp and think 95 degrees is brutal! I hope the smoothie helps cool you off!

I thought it was hot in Atlanta, but I don’t recall temps close to 90 even after the sun set – wow – that’s some heat and a decadent, dessert-like smoothie is a perfectly delicious way to stay cool!
