Salads, sandwich, sides and more are included in the E-book. There are also some fun snacks like PB&J Popsicles (which inspired my Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie) When I saw the recipe for Peach Pie Smoothie, I knew I had to try it and it was SO good!
But before I get to the recipe, I want to share more info. about the e-book and some other fun things I’m working on with Produce For Kids.

Peach Pie Smoothie
Now on the recipe I told you about! While many of the recipes in the e-book caught my eye, I do love a good smoothie so decided to try the Peach Pie Smoothie. Y’all! With the blend of peaches, spices and a touch of oatmeal, it tastes JUST LIKE A PIECE OF PEACH PIE! So yummy! I had it as an afternoon snack, but I think it would be good just about any time of the day (as smoothies are in my opinion!)
Here’s the recipe:
Peach Pie Smoothie
- 3 ⁄4 cup plain almond milk
- 2 large peaches chilled, sliced
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1 ⁄2 cup crushed ice 1⁄3
- 1 ⁄2 cup plain lowfat Greek yogurt
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- 1 ⁄4 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 ⁄2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 ⁄4 tsp. nutmeg
- Combine milk, peaches, oats, yogurt, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and ice in blender. Blend until smooth.
I hope you’ll take advantage of all these great ideas and opportunities from Produce For Kids. How will you be keeping summer simple and healthy this year?
