When the heat picks up that can only mean one thing, peaches are in season! Aside from watermelon, peaches are my absolute favorite fruit this time of year. They’re exceptionally juicy here in Texas, maybe I’m biased. But all the farmers markets offer them up and each one is without a doubt delicious. I truly cannot get enough of them! I love to stock up and freeze a few batches for my smoothies. It only seemed appropriate to share a new smoothie bowl combo featuring them.
Of course, I had some help from Silk too. They launched a new line of almond milk dairy-free yogurts in three new flavors. Including: Strawberry, Vanilla & Peach, all 5-6 grams of protein each. You know I had to get a few peach flavored ones! If you haven’t tried dairy-free yogurt before, I highly recommend Silk. It’s without a doubt the real deal, better than any yogurt I ever had growing up. Minus the cruelty and full of gut-healthy probiotics. I believe plant-based yogurt alternatives are the best option available for those of you that are health-conscious.
To make the process easier in spotting them I checked out their store locator – you can specifically filter based on the product you’re looking for. Luckily my local Kroger Marketplace was listed as a retailer. This particular Kroger actually had a different layout than what I was use to. A ton of the vegan and vegetarian products were bundled together right next to the produce section. Since the bulk of my cart is produce, I didn’t even have to look hard to find everything I needed. The new Silk yogurts were front and center in the cooler. I personally love that they were separate from the dairy section across the store. You might have seen a photo of my cart on Instagram (photo below).
Not only were they on sale but I also had a coupon. If you’re interested in giving Silk’s new yogurts a try you can save some money here. Stock up on the peach flavor, trust me! They’re perfect to add to smoothies or layer with your favorite granola to make a breakfast parfait.
Of course today I’ll be showing you how I like to use my peaches and peach yogurt to make smoothie bowls. I did a spin on peaches n’ cream – adding greens to make it even more nutrient dense. I promise you can’t taste the spinach whatsoever. With the addition of soaked cashews and rolled oats for extra creaminess and healthy filling fats. You can of course replace the cashews for tofu if you have a nut-allergy or cauliflower to avoid both nuts and soy – whatever works for you. It’s super customizable and tastes great regardless.
I like to make mine thick so I make sure to use frozen peaches. Depending on the consistency you prefer you may or may not need a liquid to blend. I actually used a splash of Silk Cashew Milk – it’s quickly become my go-to. Really low in calories, no added sugar and it’s super creamy. I’ve been using it in my protein shakes post-workout for the past month. So good!
