Frozen Peach Smoothie Starter


Here is a delicious way to quickly and easily start your day with a smoothie-- called a frozen smoothie starter, it is basically a frozen smoothie pellet the size of a cupcake or muffin cup (whatever size your pan is) that you just pop into your blender along with whatever fruit, fluid or greens you want to add, and voila! A gourmet smoothie, no ice cubes needed! Dairy-free and Gluten-free.


This smoothie is made with fresh, tree-ripened, organic Okanagan-grown Red Haven Peaches, the absolute royalty among eating peaches!  But any peaches will do-- just make sure they are organic (as I explain in this blog, although they have amazing mouth appeal and health benefits, chemically-sprayed peaches are in the "Dirty Dozen" foods list).  You'll have summer in your glass whenever you pour out your peachy smoothie in the months to come!

Blend together the following Ingredients:
  1. 6 well-washed (but unpeeled, if organic) Peaches, sliced
  2. 4 C. Coconut Dream Coconut Milk (or Almond-Brasil nut mylk would also be delish!)
  3. 2 T. shredded (unsweetened) Coconut
  4. 1 T. Cinnamon powder
Pour into 12 muffin cups (I use silicone muffin pans for quick pop-out-ability but other muffin tins will do).  

There will likely be enough left over for a big smoothie base (add your fave greens, etc. and blend up again.) 

Put the muffin pans into the freezer and freeze until solid.

Put the frozen peachy-coconut discs into ziplock bags and back into the freezer for those coming days when fresh peaches will be just a dream from last summer!

To reconstitute, just add one or two of the frozen discs to a cup or two of fluid (water, juice, coconut milk, nut mylk, etc.) and add more fruit (a frozen banana goes well) if you want, and fresh chopped greens (with peaches I like cilantro, parsley, romaine or celery).  

Question: Who's the Clever Duck for getting their smoothies all ready to go in advance?

  1. What a great idea. I often make my smoothies a day in advance as I don't have time first time in the morning but I also don't like warm smoothies, so this is a great solution and will be much tastier than ice. Do they blend up fine in a vitamix or do you let them defrost a bit first?

  2. Hi Katherine-- they are tastier than ice! And the Vitamix doesn't need any extra help-- they seem to be just the right sort of consistency to blend up like a dream! Thanks for your comments, I always appreciate what you have to add in here!
