Do you ever just throw things in the blender and hope it turns out? Well guess what- you’re not alone! And sometimes it’s hard to choke down that brown sludge coloured smoothie you thought would turn a beautiful purple colour(but you do anyways because there are so many adaptogens and expensive ingredients in there). But NOT this time! This time I have you covered. A peach basil and almond smoothie bowl that tastes and looks delicious (no brown sludge here thank you very much!). Side note- For more tasty smoothie recipes check out Banana-less Green Smoothie and my Blood Orange Smoothie.
This smoothie bowl is sweet, healthy, creamy and simple to make. This recipe is so easy it takes just five minutes to prepare, plus/minus a few minutes depending on if you style your bowl with perfectly placed toppings and photograph it in just the right natural light (oh hiiii that’s meeeee). Smoothies are also more fun when they are in bowl form. Fact. You can eat them with a spoon and and add endless amounts of toppings to take your smoothie from snack to full on meal. Some of my favourite smoothie toppings are- frozen berries, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, toasted coconut, nuts and seeds, any kind of nut butter, coconut yogurt, coconut butter, rose petals, spices like cinnamon, ginger or cardamom.
I really like the combination of peaches and almond- that marzipan flavour with summer peaches is divine. Adding basil to the mix adds just a little extra layer of flavour. I decided to make this smoothie when I was digging through my freezer and I found all of the Ontario peaches I had frozen this past summer. So, this recipe has a very summer feel to it which is helpful when it’s still snowing here in Toronto. I will, however, definitely be making this again when peaches are in season and the basil is growing fresh in my backyard but for now, just tasting summer will have to suffice.
