Has the late summer sun got to you yet? If so, cool down with my vegan tropical peach smoothie.
Sometimes I call it a tropical sunrise smoothie, which I also featured on the American Council of Exercise's "What do ACE Pro's eat for Breakfast?" article. Not only did the summer sun inspire these recipes, but these tropical-like plants that grow nearby my apartment reminded me of the good old beach days!
I love smoothies. But, I love making smoothies with coconut milk from the can. It brings extra-heartiness to the smoothie that increases satiation.
Coconut smoothies remind me of my trip to Mexico where locals blended up fresh pineapple and banana mixed with canned coconut milk. Everytime I take a sip of paradise, I remember the good days of exploring the Riviera Maya beaches.
Tulum, my favorite RM town, is an enclave of artists and creatives. Born to chill, a smoothie is symbolic to increasing one’s energy after a tough day at the beach. Cool on the beach and hot in the town, tropical smoothies brought enough energy to shop at the many hand-made stores that sold dream catcher necklaces to hand-stitched purses.
The fruits of nature are indeed some of the most refreshing foods on the planet.
Since peaches are in season, I altered a recipe that I used for my vegan cookbook manuscript and fused the best of the peaches and tropical flavors.
It really doesn’t get any easier than this! Five minutes and you’re all set for the morning.
