Peach Pie Smoothie

To drink more milk and gain  a healthy weight, yes gain not loose, is my goal this year. So I have started to make smoothies and keeping them in the fridge, so I don't stay hungry for too long.  So to go along with this week's theme at IHCC , Fresh Starts! , I  tried  Ellie Krieger's Peach Pie Smoothie. Peaches are a bit expensive to eat everyday over here but when turned into a smoothie the kids and I enjoyed them for a day.
 I wasn't quite sure about the spices but it complemented the taste.  I used fresh peaches instead of frozen.

Recipe : Peach Pie Smoothie recipe from Ellie Kreiger's  peach pie smoothie recipe

1 1/2 peaches  ( the other half of the peach disappeared into two hungry little mouths ) cubed
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup low fat high calcium milk ( or use full fat)
a few drops vanilla essence
1/4 tsp ground cinamon
A big pinch of finely grated nutmeg
1/8 ground ginger ( optional)
sugar or honey to taste

Add everything into a blender and blend till smooth. Chill and serve.

Linking this over to IHCC's  this week theme " Fresh Starts!". Hop over to visit them to check out the recipes  that are healthy and focuses  on healthy recipes  to start your new year, and/or your day.


  1. Delicious smoothie... Good to hear somebody wanting to gain weight... most of them seem to be struggling with loosing, including myself... ;)

    1. lol i know people get surprised when i tell them I am trying to gain some

  2. The smoothie sounds really tasty, Nammi.

  3. Smoothies would be a great way to add nutritional calories to your diet! Peaches are my favorite fruit and I've been meaning to try this smoothie. It looks so creamy and delicious!

    Good luck with your weight gain!

  4. Love her smoothies. Lots of flavor. Lots of goodness.

  5. Smoothie flavored like a peach pie can be a great recipe for all ages. You need to eat a lot of this to gain weight. Enjoy!

  6. Yummy...fresh peaches! They are expensive over here too!

  7. I love a good smoothie and peaches are one of my favorite ingredients. What a bonus to splurge on fresh peaches. Here, the frozen peaches we get are usually fresher, better, and cheaper than fresh peaches, since they don't grow in the climate--but there is nothing better than biting into a ripe peach. ;-)

    1. Unfortunately we dont grow peaches either it comes all the way from australia so not exactly as juicy as you imagine :)
