August. Is there any better month for food? I don’t think so. It’s a regular cornucopia! Berries. Tomatoes. Squash. Plums. Apricots. Pears. Basil. Corn on the cob. Beans. Melons…
Yellow peaches. White peaches. And my new favorite discovery at our favorite local fruit stand: Donut peaches! Yes, there really is such a thing. Peaches that look like little donuts. How cute is that?
Peaches are really the crown jewel of August. There’s nothing better than a juicy, ripe peach, pure and simple, eaten like an apple, with sticky juices running down your fingers.
And so, of course, a PEACHES AND CREAM SMOOTHIE BOWL is a must this time of year! Oh so simple…basically peach, banana and a little coconut cream. If you want some added protein, throw in some collagen peptides! Smooth, creamy, perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack on a lazy, hazy hot August day. A healthier substitute for ice cream. A midnight snack. A midmorning snack. A simple dinner.
Lay out all the toppings: berries, peaches, nut butter, coconut, dried fruit, nuts, granola…and let the kids get creative with their bowls. Make beautiful patterns on top and snap photos of their creations. Then eat quickly before the luscious goodness melts!
Peach season is fleeting. Eat a peach every day! Oh heck, make a Peaches and Cream Smoothie Bowl every day. Too soon it’ll just be bananas and clementines. Happy August! Happy peaches!
