The vegan peach crumble shake is a refreshing and filling summer breakfast with oats, baking spices, fresh and frozen peaches and nut milk.

Once August is here, I make versions of this peach crumble shake pretty much every day. Sometimes I’ll use a handful of berries in the mix, some greens, but the basic formula is always there. Oats in breakfast-y shakes is something I’ve been doing for a while. It brings the thickness to a shake/smoothie that tends to lessen the need for banana or another texture-enhancing fruit. Sometimes you’re just not in the mood for the taste of banana!

We are heading out for a little overnight trip at Mark’s friends’ place this weekend. I’m tasked with making a side/sides for dinner and thankfully, Kristin Donnelly’s Modern Potluck came in the mail this week. You’ll be hearing more about this one from me, but let me just say that for now, the timing could not have been better. Hope you’re all enjoying these winding-down weeks of summer. Here’s a few links and things that caught my eye :)

Bummed that I saw this long after finals season, but do I love that Doris Burke.

On figs, those “enclosed flowers that bloom modestly inward.”

New podcast alert! Plant Gourmet is all about higher level vegan/plant-based food and the incredible people behind it. Cannot wait to listen to the Beyond Sushi episode.

Would you give up coffee and alcohol for a year if it meant less stress, more sleep, and more money? I honestly think I could go without booze entirely, but coffee is something I might enjoy too much to give up. And I only started drinking it in my late 20’s!

I only have one question/concern with this simple tomato tartine recipe offered up on a blog to much social media backlash: why isn’t it in my face right this second? I love those reminders that food can be simply good in a minimal way and I also detest the quickness to judge on social media. (I made a version right after I saw this)

Some of this relates to my comments on Instagram Stories/Snapchat in my last post: on silencing your inner critic.

Peach Crumble Shake with Chia - The First Mess (vegan)
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings 1

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe peaches – pitted, sliced and frozen
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1 pitted Medjool date
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • big squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, optional
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup filtered water

Equipment

Notes

  • I used my cashew pecan milk for the non-dairy milk here. SO good! But any milk will due.
  • The lemon juice seems weird, but is necessary to lift up some of the oat-y, sweet flavours here. If you have orange juice around, a splash of that might work too.
  • I don’t want to sound too precious, but slicing and freezing ripe summer peaches is pretty crucial to the success of this one. The bagged frozen peaches in the freezer aisle have less peachy flavour and skew more towards neutral.

Instructions

  • In an upright blender, combine the frozen peaches, oats, date, chia seeds, almond butter, lemon juice, cinnamon, vanilla, protein powder (if using) non-dairy milk, and water. Blend on high until thoroughly combined and frothy. It’ll be super thick! Enjoy immediately.

    Delicious way to enjoy peach season! I didn’t have any almond butter so I threw in a handful of walnuts. Used flax instead of chia too, and topped it with some fresh cut peach slices. So good! Thanks Laura.

  • Dusty

    Great links! I’m loving the Plant Gourmet podcast :)

  • Sophie

    I took the liberty of roasting the peaches before freezing to make this shake. TOTALLY MOUTHWATERING.

    I never thought of adding lemon juice to a smoothie before, but I love the idea. I have to try this with a dash of cardamon!

  • Cassie

    Genius recipe! Peaches are my favorite fruit in a smoothie!

    This looks awesome! Totally making it for breakfast tomorrow. Also, the coconut milk at starbucks IS totally weird! Or I guess just sweetened. Love the links as always <3

  • Claudia

    I go to Starbucks maybe every few weeks but I too was thrilled once they added Coconut milk. I drink only espresso drinks and an iced latte with coconut milk is quite tasty and I consider it a dessert drink because they use original and not unsweetened milk. :)

    Hey Laura! Thanks for the fab links. And what a wonderful drink!! I need this in my life! :)

    This looks like my kind of breakfast. AMAZING

  • Allyson

    I keep getting reminders that I need to up my breakfast game, like this one. This looks beautiful- and I’ve never thought of adding oats to my smoothies.
