There are few things in life that are as glorious as a juicy, ripe summer peach. This smoothie combines peaches with heart-healthy oats that are plumped and softened in hot water to add body and creaminess.
Tbsp quick-cooking rolled oats
cup quick-cooking rolled oats
small, ripe yellow peaches, peeled, pitted and roughly chopped, plus one wedge reserved for garnish
cup ice cubes
cup lowfat vanilla yogurt
Pinch ground cinnamon
Stir the oats and water together in a small bowl and let sit for 5 minutes.
Put the oat mixture, peaches, ice cubes, yogurt, honey and cinnamon into a blender. Blend on high until very smooth. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water if needed to adjust consistency. Pour into a glass and garnish with a peach wedge.
