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. 🙂
