I tried this one today. I’m not a huge grape fan so I substituted kiwi for the grapes and I also added 1 tbsp. of coconut flakes and chia seed. DELICIOUS! And peachy.
I have been making your recipes and love them all. I want to try this one, but I’m wondering why it only calls for one cup of liquid when the others all seem to call for two cups. Is this a misprint?
Peaches + grapes have a lot of juice within them.
This recipe is definitely one of my favorites. I could drink this all day. Nectarines are also a good sub for peaches. I couldn’t find any good peaches this time of year. Love it!
Glad you enjoyed it!
Where do you get coconut water? Do you have to crack coconuts for this. I know, I know, a little dumb here. LOL.
I have found my coconut water in the soda isle at the grocery store. Or yes, you can crack opening a coconut.
Plan on making this one soon: I like to add ice to my smoothies as I like them thick and those itty bitty ice pieces make me feel like I”m having a tropical drink to make it thicker, should I add avocado or banana? Banana isn’t my favorite in smoothies (although, does freezing the banana make the flavor more mild?)
If I don’t have coconut water, can I just use some coconut flakes (unsweetened) and a little unsweetened coconut milk?
Totally, Megan. Go for it. Enjoy!
Hello, I love making smoothies and I love mine super thick and icy as well. Something I’ve found that really works is using frozen fruit. Pretty much all the fruit I put in mine is frozen. So the grapes and peaches this recipe calls for, for me, would go in frozen. As well as ice, so you get that super thick frozen concoction! Also, it’s cheaper to buy bulk frozen fruit that’s 100% natural with no added sugar. So it’s a win win!!
Ok That’s it: I think I’m in LOVE!!! Made it with a banana+maca.
Plus, I just learn elsewhere that I will be able to grow my own leafy greens indoor this winter so it makes it even more interesting (I am in Québec, Canada, so the only thing growing outside this time of the year is snow!). Thanks for the recipes
Stay warm in Québec, my parents live in Alberta. Like you, they are chilly!
That’s a fabulous idea to grow your own leafy greens! Cheers to you!
Hi ladies, I just signed up for Jan’s 30 Day Challenge. Very keen.
One thing I am concerned about is all the sugar I’ll be taking in from the fruit. Any words of wisdom?
Here is a link to our low sugar fruits.
Hope that helps.
This smoothie is my favorite so far. It was so yummy. I couldn’t find coconut water so I used 2 cups of coconut juice. That might have been why I enjoyed so. Is coconut water better to use? I felted like I was cheating bc it was so delicious. Lol I will try the water the next time.
I could be wrong, Rickita, but I think coconut juice and coconut water are the same thing.
Cheers! You RAWK!
I’ve tried few recipes from your website and all are delicious but this one is a lil too sweet for me. Maybe the grapes n I substituted peaches for mangoes. Impossible to find fresh peaches where I come from (Asia). It’s still delicious though. Day 4 of challenge, drinking at least twice a day. I love it..
Thanks for the feedback! Keep blending those leafy greens!
I love your website. I just got my Blendtec and have only made 2 different smoothies so far from your site. I just made this peach one and it tasted good but the texture was very strange. Kind of airy. Was I suppose to take the skin off the peaches first? Maybe it was the fuzz on the skin that is making the texture weird.
Thanks for reaching out to us. So happy to hear you have joined the Blendtec Family. It is such a great blender. We do not remove the skin of peaches, (but we do remove the stone.) I would try adding a banana in place of one of the peaches in the recipe and see if the airiness goes away. Cheers & happy blending!
I am a newbie to this. I haven’t tried making this yet. Would orange juice be good with this as a base. I don’t like anything with coconut either? It looks like this would also be good with strawberries as well and maybe blueberries. I have some chocolate whey protein also. Would just a scoop be ok to add? Very curious about the these smoothies.
Here are two links that will better answer you questions.

Try the flavored aloe vera water.
I made this one today but I used frozen mangos instead of peaches. I only tasted grapes but that’s probably my fault and it’s okay because I drank a ton of kale. It was still really yummy though and it was a great idea to use coconut water.
Glad you still drank it! Keep blending those leafy greens!
I made this one today. It was very nice even if I did use just water for the base, so yummy.
Great to hear Ola!
This is great. Did not have grapes so I added a Granny Smith apple, 2 small kiwis.
How was it, Gaelle?
I bought almond coconut milk…would that work as a substitute for the coconut water? If not, would water or orange juice work? What would you suggest for a substitute?
realized i wanted to receive notifications but hadnt checked it the first time
Yes, use the almond coconut milk that you bought in place of coconut water. It will make it nice and creamy! Enjoy!
Hands down best smoothie. I can have this everyday! I just got a vitamix makes makin smoothies easier. It’s lite and filling at the same time. I had it with a green salad today. I hope u have more like this for Julys challenge!
Thanks for your feedback!
Hello. I’m somewhat new to this smoothie thing and I was wondering how exactly do you measure leafy greens; packed or loose? I imagine loose wouldn’t be much. Right now I’m honestly measuring by just grabbing handfuls. So is a cup of spinach or any other leafy veg packed/stuffed in the measuring cups? Thanks in advance. ^_^
We pack them tightly in measuring cups. Great question, April!
Gotcha. Thanks again! ^_^
Just made this smoothie for the first time (My first green smoothie ever!!!!!!!!).
Starting my own little challenge of trying all the recipes – before doing the challenge with you in July!!!!
Hi Jada & Jen
I tried this one with 1 cup deaf nettle and 1 cup mint, but I can’t say I liked the grapes . . I used dark ones and my blender didn’t manage the skin well enough . . whish I had a better one . . I added half an avocado and a little rice-coconut drink to make it less chunky.
Do you have any suggestions in which combi the mint would be a nice addition? It is very good for my stomach but it tends to overpower the other flavours…? Cheers
Hmm… We think mint goes great with strawberries!
Was reading in the comments about using peach pits in the blender. I’ve always heard that cyanide can be made from peach pits, and could be harmful!
We never use the peach pits when we blend!
I found your website today and my wife and I are new smoothie fans. I tried this one today but used unsweetened almond vanilla milk and red grapes but I didn’t know if they should be yellow or red. We thought the results were ok but perhaps I didn’t mix long enough a the skin from the grapes was quite evident. Not a big deal but the straw would get the skin. I selected this recipe because of the minimum number of ingredients and easy to follow. I would have added some chia or flax but my wife prefers no seeds. Do you suggest these seeds. Don’t think there is a flavor from them. We are using a Magic Bullet mixer. I wondered if the Nutribullet would be a better choice, but not that much larger.
You can use either of those seeds—we love ’em both! It also really doesn’t matter which kind of grape you use. Hope this helps!
I’ve been using the Nutribullet for over a year. It blends everything. I mill my seeds right after buying them and store them in a plastic container in the freezer. Last forever.
