Energizing Peach Spinach Smoothie (With Banana and Almond Milk)

A recipe for an energizing peach spinach smoothie with all the right flavors and nutrients, perfect for when you need an energy boost.

During the warmer summer months, I love drinking smoothies that are not only nutritious but also refreshing and perhaps a bit sweet.

One of those refreshing smoothies 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.

I especially love drinking this beverage first thing in the morning as a quick and filling breakfast smoothie for that much-needed energy boost.

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)

Peaches

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 lots of antioxidants to help strengthen our immune system, and peaches are no different.

Peaches in bowl

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 our 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.

Spinach in bowl

One of my favorite leafy greens to blend with fruits is spinach, another true nutritional powerhouse.

It’s loaded with many 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 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 entirely optional, but because I enjoy making this smoothie in the morning, it’s good to add a handful of almonds just to feel a bit more satisfied.

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.
