Looking for a dreamy, creamy, and refreshing smoothie to enjoy on these hot summer days? Here it is!
You must try my Rose peach smoothie as soon as possible.
From the day I started to feel the end of rainy season turn into a hot Tunisian summer, I have been creating and consuming smoothies like there’s no tomorrow. I never find myself hungry for a meal in the middle of the day, and have developed a routine of drinking a healthy smoothie after my mid morning work out. They keep my body fueled, hydrated, and happy!
Lately I’ve been on a rose kick. I often find I’ll find an edible flower and obsess over it for a while. First it was geranium, then it was lavender and now, roses. Every recipe from me has been roses lately and I don’t see an end in sight. I have a list of twenty rose recipe ideas I want to create and perfect and share with you here.
This smoothie is unique, creamy and delicious
And rose, peach + vanilla are a flavor combination I’ve never seen before. I also added a tiny hint of citrus. You know me, I love to try and create unique recipes. And I really enjoyed the outcome so much. I’m patiently waiting for my baby boy to wake from a nap so I can turn the blender on and whip one up now!
In this recipe, I like to use frozen peaches, fresh vanilla bean, rose water, almond milk, and a drop of my Young Living essential oil lemon vitality oil. It is very important to add that you should NOT ingest any essential oil that is not by Young Living, or specified by your aromatherapist. Essential oils are typically not for consumption. They are often adulterated, but it is safe to ingest Young Living’s lemon essential oil as directed due to its 100% natural and pure state. I love the test of lemon in my drinks, but lemons are acidic and not good for your teeth. However, studies show that citrus essential oils are not bad for our teeth.
“In a private study, fifty-five milliliters of purified water were placed in a beaker and the pH of was measured to be 7.4. Fifteen drops of orange essential oil were added to this beaker and the pH did not change. An additional 10 drops of orange essential oil were added to the beaker and the pH still did not change, indicating that little to no acids are contained in the oil. This was expected since acids are not oil-soluble, and any acids that are removed from the plant during distillation remain the aqueous phase of the distillate after separation. Conversely, an equal amount of freshly squeezed orange, lime, lemon, or tangerine juice caused the pH to shift downwards. These changes in pH represented more than a 10-fold increase in the acidity of the solution. These results confirm that citrus essential oils do not contain the acids found in orange juices. Therefore, the essential oil is very unlikely to cause acid erosion to the enamel. Essential oils and teeth are a safe combination. There is no evidence that essential oils can cause damage to enamel or demineralize teeth.” Source. Lemon in this recipe is absolutely optional, especially if you don’t have the lemon essential oil by Young Living! I love the little hint of freshness it adds.

I always use fresh vanilla bean in my smoothies, because it’s readily available in the spice shops here in Tunisia. However, if it’s not easy for you to find, a hint of vanilla extract works well too.
We also use homemade rose water in this recipe, but organic and store-bought works just as well!
