Vegan Peach Cobbler Milkshake

by Kris on May 20, 2011

I am not a vegan. I’m actually not even a vegetarian but I love a challenge. Enter the healthy vegan milkshake. So many desserts are off limits for those trying to avoid animal products or even attempting to live a healthy lifestyle. It truly doesn’t have to be this way as making a healthy vegan dessert is just as simple as making one full of fat, sugar and dairy. All you need is a blender and a few simple ingredients such as fruit, coconut milk, and some common spices.

Peach cobbler is one of my favourite desserts and with fresh peaches popping up at my local farmers market I couldn’t resist the challenge of another dessert inspired healthy milkshake. When choosing peaches for this purpose, ensure they are quite ripe as they no longer ripen after they are picked. If you can find a few ripe peaches there is no need to add additional sweetener such as maple syrup as these juicy fruits are full of natural sugars.

You can also opt to make this recipe raw by omitting the peach preserves and substituting almond butter and a few pecans for the graham cracker crumbs and oats. Now go make your sweet tooth happy and enjoy some peach cobbler for breakfast, even your skinny jeans won’t mind! Happy Friday!

4 ripe peaches, sliced
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. Peach preserves, preferably natural, no sugar added
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 cup light coconut milk
1 ripe frozen banana
1 Tsp. pure vanilla extract
½ Tsp. cinnamon
dash nutmeg
2 Tbsp. graham cracker crumbs (check label to ensure it is vegan)
1 Tbsp. old fashioned oats
2-3 pecans (optional)
maple syrup, sweeten to taste (optional)
ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth

Top with soy based whip cream, sprinkle with additional graham crackers and cinnamon. Garnish with a peach slice.

Serves 3-4

I’ve got a can of coconut milk that I don’t know what to do with. That problem has been effectively solved.

I use coconut oil to help thicken it up, but it should also work without it. You could definitely use apricot preserves as well. Experiment and let me know how it turns out! :)

Yum. I can’t wait until we get some good peaches around here so that I can make this! I’m also a huge fan of the ginger-peach-coconut smoothie combo… And a gorgeous photo, as always :)
