If you follow my Instagram account, you know how much I love trying out new smoothie combinations. I primarily make green smoothies, but I like to branch out every once in a while to try new flavors. I was browsing Pinterest a few weeks ago and suddenly I had the idea to turn a yummy peach cobbler into a healthy smoothie (and not by just sticking some peach cobbler in a blender). A few weeks later and my peach cobbler smoothie recipe was born!
I added oatmeal to my peach cobbler smoothie, my first time making an oatmeal smoothie. Adding the oats in makes this a really great breakfast smoothie. The oatmeal adds extra protein and fiber to the smoothie, which helps keep you fuller. And, you’ll be getting in some extra whole grains, too! I loved making a smoothie with all of that healthy goodness into a smoothie and that the smoothie will keep me full until lunchtime. I don’t need to eat gluten free so I just used standard quick oats, but I’m sure gluten-free oats would work in this recipe, too.

I also decided to make this smoothie vegan so my vegan friends can try it, but you could easily use non-vegan protein powder or milk to make your smoothie if you wanted. Adding some yogurt (dairy or non-dairy) would add a nice creamy texture if you wanted to try throwing in a quarter cup or so.
Here’s the recipe for my vegan peach cobbler smoothie!
- 1 1/2 c frozen peaches (I used 10 slices)
- 1/4 c oats
- 1 serving vanilla protein powder
- 1 c vanilla almond milk
- dash of cinnamon
- Thaw the peaches in a microwave for 30 seconds. (They should still be partially frozen.) Add thawed peaches and remaining ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
