Peaches & Cream Smoothie & VegNews Love


The classic combo of peaches and cream makes for a wonderful treat any time of day. I slipped some strawberries in there too.. because they also go stunningly with cream.

But, more importantly than any ol’ smoothie– I want to send out a virtual hug and high fives to all of my readers! Manifest Vegan was chosen as one of the Top 10 veg blogs in VegNews’ latest issue (July-August)!!

Without all of you checking out my recipes every week, this never would have been possible. Ever. I am flattered and overjoyed ♥

Hooray for you fantastic readers, and Hooray for the other vegan blogs who were mentioned! It is truly outstanding to be listed with such wonderful blogs!!

Congratulations all around!

Now, back to the smoothie:




  • 2 peaches, sliced or diced and frozen
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries, greens removed, sliced and frozen
  • 2 bananas, frozen
  • 3 heaping tbsp coconut cream
  • 1-2 cups almond milk (I prefer the kind that is lightly sweetened)

Before beginning your smoothie, chop and freeze all of your fruit. If you are making this for breakfast, it works great to do all the prep work the night before. Then in the morning, all you have to do is dump it in your blender and push “on”. Adjust almond milk according to your desired thickness. About 1 1/4 cups almond milk makes a nice and thick smoothie.

Pour into frosty glasses and enjoy! Serves 2.
