My taste buds work differently during summer, which is why I love drinking smoothies that are not only nutritious but also super refreshing during the warmer months.

One of those refreshing smoothie recipes is this particular peach spinach smoothie. It’s a classic recipe, that I often change up a bit depending on my mood, but this smoothie somehow just always works for me.

And while it may not be for everyone, I especially love drinking this smoothie first thing in the morning as a quick and healthy breakfast drink, for that much needed energy boost.

Please find the printable version of this recipe further below.

Peach Spinach Smoothie Ingredients

So what goes into this delicious drink?

 

Ingredients:

 
  • 1 large cup fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 large cup peach slices (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 small banana
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 small handful of almonds (optional)
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes (optional)

Nutritional Goodness

I don’t even know why, but peaches and nectarines are among my favorite fruits to eat in summer. I’m guessing it’s the combination of the unique texture and refreshing flavors of peaches that just draws me in.

Why are peaches so healthy?

Fruits and vegetables in general provide us with natural antioxidants to help defend our bodies against disease and stay healthy. Peaches are no different, and are a great source of antioxidants to help strengthen our immune system.

Peaches in basket

Peaches are also very low in calories and fat, and contain no cholesterol or sodium. An average sized peach provides 15% of our daily vitamin C needs and 6% of your daily vitamin A needs, which is quite significant.

In addition, peaches also contain fiber, vitamins E and K, niacin, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese and copper.

One of my favorite leafy greens to blend with fruits is spinach, another true nutritional powerhouse. It’s loaded with tons of different nutrients, such as vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, folate, potassium and even protein.

Verdict

As mentioned, I really love drinking this smoothie in the morning. The peaches and banana mix really well with the spinach, and the taste overall is quite refreshing and energizing.

The small teaspoon of honey adds that little bit of sweetness that is so nice when drinking this as a breakfast green smoothie.

The almonds are completely optional, but because I enjoy making this smoothie in the morning, it’s good to add a handful of almonds just to give it some extra power.

They do affect the overall taste a bit, but just try it out and play around with the quantity to get this peach spinach smoothie exactly the way you want it to be.
