This peaches and cream smoothie combines fresh fruit, coconut and oats with a hint of sweetness from maple syrup. It's a fresh breakfast smoothie or light snack that comes together in just five minutes. Made without yogurt, this summer smoothie is vegan, gluten-free and low histamine.
Smoothies are such a healthy breakfast or snack, but always feel a bit indulgent with their delightful sweetness. If you are a smoothie lover too, then you may like to see my apple and pear smoothie and cherry blueberry smoothie. Both tasty and easy to make!
And if you like your smoothie a bit more hearty, my blueberry pear smoothie has both oats and hemp for protein and carbs to start your day.
Back to this peach smoothie, it really makes the most of summer peaches and is so creamy and moreish. Reminds me a bit of vacations!

Why you'll love this recipe
- Taste of summer - there are some ingredients that just go together, and peaches and cream is one of them. Perfect summer smoothie!
- Vegan - we swap traditional cream for non-dairy milk, desiccated coconut and oats. Still creamy and delicious but without dairy.
- Easy to make - just one step for your smoothie!
It seems to me that smoothies have got a bit over-complicated lately, with so many ingredients that are tricky to hunt down. This peach oatmeal smoothie is super simple, and includes ingredients I always have to hand:
- Peaches: the most delicious summer fruit, make sure they are ripe for extra favour.
- Desiccated coconut: this adds a 'creamy' flavour. Blend the smoothie fairly well so it isn't too 'bitty' from the flakes. I like the Terrasoul organic coconut flakes.
- Non-dairy milk: see below for options if you are on a low histamine diet.
- Oats: these make the smoothie more hearty, and healthy! Plus they add a creaminess as well.
- Maple syrup: for that all-important hint of sweetness!
Gluten-free smoothie suggestions
It is very easy to make this peach smoothie a gluten-free breakfast option or post-workout snack - simply use certified oats such as the Bob's Red Mill organic gluten free oats.
If you are using oat milk then check it is suitable and certified gluten-free.
Step by step instructions
I always feel a little funny giving suggestions for how to make a smoothie, because it really is so simple and I'm sure you guys know the drill now!
But just in case, this smoothie only really has two steps:
- De-stone your peaches and add to a blender or Nutri-Bullet (which is what I use).
- Add the other ingredients. I suggest adding the milk first as it will help to stop the oats from sticking to the sides. Then blend until smooth and creamy.
Non-dairy milk and a low histamine diet
There are so many non-dairy milk options now, and the store is heaving with different varieties using nuts, oats, coconut and soya.
For those following a low histamine diet, these are the 'scores' that the SIGHI list has for non-dairy milks:
- Coconut milk: this scores 0 on the SIGHI list, although it should be noted that it isn't clear whether they are referring to coconut milk in a carton (pouring milk) or in a can.
- Rice milk: scores 1, with a note stating 'Often slightly histamine containing as fermented enzymatically'.
- Oat milk: also scores 1, and similarly to rice milk has a note stating 'Often slightly histamine containing as fermented enzymatically'.
For those forms of milk also watch out for added flavourings that may be an issue for you.
Frequently asked questions
No need to peel, just make sure to de-stone before adding to the blender.
We use oats to thicken the smoothie, which means that is suitable as a vegan smoothie. Use gluten free oats if you have that dietary requirement.
I always pour in the liquids first as it helps prevent the oats and syrup from sticking to the blender cup.
