Just Peachy Breakfast Smoothie (Food Allergy Friendly)

As a food allergy therapist, Elika Kormeili, is often asked about easy breakfast ideas, so here you go.

Here is another breakfast shake (who has time to cook in the morning?)

You guessed it, time for another wonderful smoothie. This one will be peachy!
Here are cool facts about the peach (stuff we didn’t learn in school):

  • The peach is a member of the rose family.
  • The ancient Chinese considered the peach a symbol of long life and immortality.
  • Peaches have been around since prehistoric times.
  • They were first cultivated in China.
  • Peaches are one of the lowest-calorie fruits, almost no fat, cholesterol or sodium.


  • Why Should I give a peach?

    • Peaches contain vitamin A, in the form of beta carotene, which has been linked to a reduced risk of some forms of cancer.
    • Peaches also contain riboflavin which is good for the eyes.
    • Peaches have potassium (a potassium shortage you may experience fatigue, anxiety, muscle weakness, poor memory, skin problems and heart problems).

    Peaches give you a boost without the sugar craving!

    Now for the smoothie. Here are your ingredients:
    1 rip peach
    1 cup milk (can use milk alternative of your choice)
    1 scoop protein powder, vanilla (we used pea protein because it is vegan)
    1/4 cup raw pecans (full of anti-oxidants and vitamin E which are part of healthy skin diet).
    **Can substitute with the nut of your choice

    Blend all the ingredients together. Add ice if desired. Sweeten with Stevia if desired.
    Drink responsibly!
