Peachy Keen Cinnamon Toast Crunch Smoothie

It’s all Peachy Keen

If you thought my next blog post was going to be about the Domino’s “gluten-free” pizza, you’re not far off.  I wanted it to be about the pizza and the entire fiasco surrounding it.  But, I’m still a bit hot.  You don’t want me blogging about something while that hot.  I will go off on wild tangent after wild tangent.  You don’t want that.  It’s worse than me just being angry.  Or even Bruce Banner getting angry.  So, rest assured, if you want to hear my take on it, you will.  Just not right now.  Until then, you can read Alta’s (Tasty Eats At Home) viewpoint or Ken Scheer’s (Rock A Healthy Lifestyle) viewpoint.  In fact, I’ll give you some homework.  Read the Domino’s press release, Alice Bast’s (Director of the NFCA) statement, and Dr. Alessio Fasano’s (Director, Center for Celiac Research, University of Maryland) statement. Then, listen to The Gluten-free Radio Podcast, hosted by Jules Shepard (Jules Gluten-free), with Alice Bast as her guest, addressing the NFCA’s involvement in Domino’s gluten-free pizza release.

Moving on.

I’ve been making variations of this smoothie for the last week and yesterday after work, I think I hit a note of fuzzy food memories yesterday after finally adding almond butter.  I was getting hints of peach cobbler.  Then peach crisp.   Then Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.  Don’t ask me how I remember that cereal tastes because I don’t know.  It’s been a good 20 years since I last had it.  Bottom line, I sucked that sucker down so fast I was wanting more.  It was so good, I wanted to share it with you right away, but life got in the way.  In fact, I think I will be making as soon as I post this and get dinner on the stove. Clams anyone?

Peachy Keen Cinnamon Toast Crunch Smoothie – 16 ounce serving

1 1/2 cups frozen peaches (you can do a mix of frozen peaches and frozen mango if you want)

1 teaspoon maca root powder

1 tablespoon raw local honey or your sweetener of choice

1 tablespoon almond butter (if you can’t do almonds, just omit and don’t use something else instead, the flavor will change too much)

healthy pinch of cinnamon

dairy-free milk (I used unsweetened almond)

Place peaches, maca root powder, sweetener of choice, almond butter, and cinnamon to your blender.  Add milk to just under the 2 cup line.  Blend until smooth and there are no chunks of frozen fruit.  Pour and enjoy!

  1. Godfather’s advertises a gluten free pizza also if they have a days notice in advance to prepare it. My DIL and I have first hand experience that the crust may be gluten free but the oven, pizza cutter and the atmosphere are definitely not gluten free. Much better to cook at home where it is safe 🙂

  3. I’m intrigued by this one, Debi! I don’t always like the flavor of peaches, but the Cinnamon Toast Crunch factor appeals to me. But like you, it’s been decades since I had that cereal. And actually I think I’m thinking of another cinnamony one I loved … can’t remember the name.

    Still haven’t written my own discussion on that other topic. Bruce Banner indeed … I sooo get that!

    • 😀 A lot of times I will warn people, “You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.” when they are pushing the line.

      The smoothie isn’t really that peachy when using frozen peaches. Just a hint of them. I was thinking of trying to make it at least once with some fresh peaches mixed in to see what it tastes like. 😀 So, if peaches aren’t your thing, sticking with the frozen ones is a good idea. hehe

      *hugs*
