Craving peaches? Now’s a good time because they’re ripe, juicy and in season! Shakes and smoothies are my go-to breakfast foods, workout fuel and late night treats. They always hit the spot – giving me sustained energy but not dragging me down like a big meal might. Plus, this Healthy Peach Cobbler Milkshake Recipe is low-calorie! Whip it up before you hit the beach and it won’t leave you bloated in your brand-new bikini.
My Healthy T #PeachWeek recipe is a healthy spin on two delicious desserts – milkshakes and peach cobbler, of course.
When I’m making a breakfast shake, I want it to be a few things: high protein, low-fat and just high enough in carbs to hold me through to lunch. You’ll find that most name-brand breakfast shakes are riddled with sugar, carbs and artificial ingredients, which is why this Healthy Peach Cobbler Shake is a life-saver! It’s made with real fruit, unsweetened cashew milk milk, natural fat-free yogurt, honey, oats, vanilla and cinnamon.
Oats in a shake? Am I bonkers? Nope! Oats are one of the healthiest foods in the world. They provide a good dose of fiber and take a while to digest, therefore controlling you appetite and boosting your metabolism. As for cashew milk … it’s my top-secret ingredient. I’ve blended just about every milk you can think of – whole milk, skim milk, almond milk, soy milk, rice milk, flax milk – BUT the milk that’s going to give you the creamiest shake is cashew milk, every single time.
Cinnamon, along with the oats, bring out the cobbler flavor in this Healthy T shake. Consuming cinnamon on a regular basis can lead to better heart health, blood sugar regulation and brain function. Who couldn’t use a brain boost from time to time? If you want an extra dose of protein, add your favorite vanilla protein powder.

- 1 banana
- 1 T honey

3. Pour into four glasses and enjoy!
