I admit that I am a tad bit late on posting this recipe, as peach season is lonngggg gone (RIP RIP RIP). Miss ya bud, but I’ll see you soon.
This recipe is perfect any time of year, so it really doesn’t matter. What does matter, however, is how tasty this is. I mean, vanilla and peach?! Yes please! I’ve always been a vanilla flavored kind of person, so this recipe hits home. I love the way that the oats mix perfectly with the peach flavor, as well as the texture the oats develop.
Not only does the peach add volume, but it also adds a ton of flavor. I prefer my peaches tougher, and while some people find that strange, I love it. The tough peaches I use in this recipe soften just enough to where they’re not mushy but not extremely tough anymore. Ugh, I’m drooling just thinking about it.
I think my favorite thing about this recipe is the toppings- specifically the pistachios. I’ve recently discovered a LOVE for pistachios in EVERYTHIIINNGGGGG. They add the perfect crunch to go along with all their health benefits. I wish they weren’t so expensive or I’d go through them like crazy.
INGREDIENTS (Serves one):
1 1/2 cup cashew milk (or liquid of choice)
1 peach, split in half and separated
1 tsp ground chia seed or flax seed (optional, but adds a nice omega 3 boost)
1/4 cup liquid egg whites (or one egg white- this is optional as well, but it adds volume and gives it a protein boost)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Dash of cinnamon
Toppings of choice (I like using nut butters, nuts, fresh fruit, granola, etc)
1.) On a stove top, heat the liquid to a boil, then reduce to a low heat and add oats, egg whites and vanilla extract. Stir well.
2.) After a minute or so, add 1/2 the peach (chopped) into the oat mixture and stir well. Cover with a lid, stirring occasionally, and prepare the rest of your toppings.
3.) After the oats are done, turn the stove off and continue to cover the mixture. After a few minutes or so, pour the oats into a bowl, add your toppings, and enjoy!
