Peach Smoothie Bowl: Sesame Street Style!

Early last month I shared the first recipe (these delectable dark chocolate pudding pops) as part of my partnership with LACTAID® this year. And today I’m excited to bring you a recipe my kiddos can’t get enough of — a peach smoothie bowl decorated to look like one of their favorite Sesame Street Characters — Ernie!

Since my husband is lactose-intolerant, we always have plenty of LACTAID® on hand and my kids love it in their smoothies and smoothie bowls. It makes each smoothie creamy and delicious.

As way of a quick breakdown of LACTAID® dairy products:

Let’s talk LACTAID®

  • LACTAID® is 100% real milk, just without any lactose. It’s available at most mass merchandise, drug, & grocery stores.
  • LACTAID® dairy products provide all the protein, calcium, and vitamins you’d find in real dairy (because they are real dairy!) but without any lactose.
  • LACTAID® products help satisfy all your dairy cravings without the discomfort. They have lactose-free milk, ice cream, and cottage cheese.
  • LACTAID® Milk is ultra-pasteurized meaning the milk lasts longer under proper refrigeration while still maintaining its creamy, delicious taste.
  • And best of all, LACTAID® products taste and perform exactly the same as regular dairy foods!

Peach Smoothie Bowl tips 

I know: How complicated can making a peach smoothie be, right?! But I still have a few tips.

  1. Good ripe bananas are what ensures a thick, ice cream-like consistency for this smoothie bowl. If the smoothie base isn’t thick enough, the toppings will sink down. Freeze the bananas when they’re ripe and use only when completely frozen. Add to the blender and watch how creamy they turn!
  2. While it might seem silly to actually measure out ingredients for a smoothie instead of just throwing everything in, I highly recommend measuring ingredients the first few times you make this or until you have a feel for the quantities. Throwing random ingredients in a blender can often end up giving you WAY too much smoothie or can end up tasting off.
  3. To get the right peach smoothie bowl consistency, you’ll want to use a very high-powered blender. It takes some patience in blending, since the majority of the ingredients are frozen. This is intended to give you a super thick base that will hold up to the toppings added.
  4. Have the prepped fruit ready to go before the smoothie is finished being made. This way the smoothie won’t melt down before the toppings are added.

Calories 196kcal
Cost $3.91

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/4 cup frozen peaches
  • 3/4 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 of 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (~2 large oranges)
  • 1/2 cup lowfat 1% LACTAID milk
  • 4-6 ice cubes

Top with:

  • 1/2 of 1 strawberry
  • 2 banana slices
  • 2 mandarin oranges
  • 12 blackberries
  • 1 blueberry

Instructions

  • PREP: Start by preparing the fruit you'll top the bowl with. Remove the stem and half the strawberry lengthwise. Cut 2 thin coins from a banana. Peel and segment a mandarin orange. Slice 2 segments in half lengthwise. Thinly slice blackberries lengthwise to form hair and a few widthwise for the mouth. Half 1 blueberry.
  • SMOOTHIE BOWL: Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth and no fruit chunks remain. This will require some patience and stirring in between blending. It's intended to be very thick so the fruit will stay on top.
  • DECORATE: Spoon the thick smoothie base into a bowl. Smooth with the back of a spoon. Add prepped fruit to decorate. Add 2 banana slices in the center of the bowl with the halved blueberry on top. Add halved mandarin oranges for ears. Add the lengthwise thinly sliced blackberries to form the hair and widthwise blackberries to form the mouth. Enjoy immediately!
