Paleo Raspberry Peach Milkshake

I’m still swimming in peaches over here. Not literally, that would be gross and sticky and I’m a little too OCD for sticky messes. Luckily, the peaches are ripening just a few at a time, so at least I’m not bombarded by all of them all at once, which reminds me of this GIF I once saw:

So yeah, I can handle a few peaches at a time. And that means I’m bombarding you with peach recipes, yay! If you don’t like peaches, I promise I’m running out, and will actually eat some of them plain, but I do have a couple more recipes I’d like to try out so bear with me here. Besides, how can you not like peaches? You cray, that’s how.

Usually, when I make a smoothie (or milkshake-like smoothie in this case), I’ll go full out and do it in the Blendtec Wildside Jar, which is mammoth-sized. It makes enough for all 5 of us. But today, the selfish me came out of hiding and I really wanted to get more use out of my new little Twister Jar, and a single-serving smoothie was just what the selfish-doctor-me ordered.

I recently got a coupon in the mail for a free bag of frozen fruit. I was like “What?! Coupons for non-processed foods that aren’t full of addicting wheat products?”. I had no idea such things existed. But I was happy to have it and happier that my grocery store cares enough to track my purchases to see what I would really appreciate a coupon for. I know, that sounds weird, but if it benefits my bank account, thumbs up, right? So anyway, I got this bag of raspberries, and then this big box of peaches, so you do the math. You put those two together of course.

Oh, I also just realized that I could use chia seeds way more often than I do. They’re packed with so much good stuff and there are so many benefits to eating them. Don’t believe me? Here’s a list (I really like lists):

Chia Seeds are packed with:

  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids = good for your brain
  • Fiber = good for your tummy
  • Manganese = good for your bones
  • Calcium = good for your pearly whites
  • Tryptophan = good for your appetite

Chia Seeds can help with:

  • Diabetes = slows digestion & prevents sugar spikes
  • Belly Fat = fights insulin resistance
  • Heart Health = improves blood pressure & lowers LDL
  • Mental Health = the Omega-3 decreases depression
  • Inflammation = the Omega-3 is a pain-reliever

So now that you’re edumacated, you can feel really good about making this deliciously healthy milkshake that can improve your health. And maybe when you’re done, you can make some Chocolate Chia Pudding.

  1. Just made this and mmmmm…so GOOD!!! I doubled it so that I could share, only because my hubby heard about it otherwise I would have been selfish too 🙂 I love chia seeds and try to use them as much as possible, but I haven’t for awhile so this was perfect!

My kids love these real-fruit, no-sugar gummies and I love that they're getting the benefits from gelatin and real fruit and not the nasty side-effects of corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors.
