    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.

      Hi Ron!
      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 reading all the recipes and there is no ice in the smoothies? Could we add ice?

    • Jadah and Jen 2.3.2014 at 11:45 am #

      You can if you’d like, but we prefer frozen fruit over using ice :-) One isn’t necessarily better than the other, just what we prefer!

    I was wondering whether you would peel the peach or leave the skin on ? Also could you use canned peaches ?

    • Jadah and Jen 1.16.2014 at 6:41 pm #

      Hi Vanessa,
      We leave peach peels on and don’t used canned peaches as they are usually packed in sugar water or syrup. :)

    Can I use frozen peaches instead? If so, how many cups should I use?

  5. Abbey 11.9.2013 at 6:00 pm #

    Would blueberries work instead of grapes

  6. Rhonda 10.16.2013 at 9:26 am #

    Looks great

  7. Adrian 8.6.2013 at 3:25 pm #

    Big fan & a newbie question. When making this recipe, should you use the whole peach? what about the pits?

    Also I use a scoop of protein powder & a small scoop of flaxseed powder in my morning smoothie. Also a dash of honey for a sweetener.

  8. Adrian 8.6.2013 at 3:23 pm #

    Big fan. newbie question if you use fresh peaches for this recipe, do you just use the whole thing? if so, what about the pits? Thanks

    PS- I always put a scoop of protein & some dry flaxseed powder in my morning smoothies. I also use a dash of honey for a sweetner when I don’t want a banana.

    hi, i reli hate anything cocnut, can i just use water instead… all my friends have tried it and say it tastes delicious, but i dont do coconut @ all…. thank you

    • Jadah and Jen 7.11.2013 at 11:19 am #

      The coconut water cannot be tasted in this smoothie, but you can use water instead if you would like :-)

  10. Nicole 7.1.2013 at 8:08 am #

    I made this for day 1 o the July challenge because these were the ingredients I had on hand. Yummy way to start! I added chia seed after blending. My husband and 3 year old liked it too. Now off to shop for more ingredients so I can try other recipes. I’m so excited to see how my energy and other things improve with daily green smoothies.

  11. Jamie 7.1.2013 at 6:08 am #

    I made this for breakfast this morning and it is soooo good. It will likely become a regular in my smoothie line up –I will just rotate the leafy greens…I hope the taste won’t change too much! :-)

  12. Tayra 6.25.2013 at 10:08 am #

    Just made this smoothie!! SO delicious and refreshing!! Thanks girls!!

  13. Sue | CandlesOffMain.com 6.21.2013 at 9:08 am #

    Sounds delicious!!!! I’m definitely going to try this one.

  14. Tamara S 6.14.2013 at 7:06 pm #

    This tasted really good but did not blend well for me. For some reason, the skin of the grapes did not blend at all and I ended up having to strain my smoothie before drinking. Perhaps it’s time for a new blender…anyone else have this problem?

    • Jadah and Jen 6.15.2013 at 11:13 am #

      Hi Tamara!
      The skin of grapes is pretty difficult to get blended… We like to leave the blender on for a little extra time, but some blenders may never quite get all of the skin blended up. Hopefully the taste was still good for you!

  15. Taylor 6.5.2013 at 3:45 pm #

    Hey! I don’t have any grapes now, so could I just replace it with some fruits I do have? Like cherries?

    • Jadah and Jen 6.6.2013 at 1:58 pm #

      You sure can! That is the beauty of blending green smoothies :-)

  16. Nancy 5.21.2013 at 9:04 am #

    Can I use coconut milk instead of coconut water? Is the same thing?

    • Jadah and Jen 5.21.2013 at 10:15 am #

      Hi Nancy! They are not the same product, but both can be used. We would advise not using coconut milk on a frequent basis. It has great nutrients, but also is a little more fatty :-)

  17. Cindy 5.18.2013 at 8:50 am #

    I LOVE Peach Coconut Dream. I used coconut milk instead of water and it is SO nom nom nom! I’ve been doing the April challenge all this month and I cannot TELL you how amazing I feel. My skin in clearer and when my hormones act up it’s easier to keep pimples at bay, I’m happier and I have a lot more energy. Green smoothies have literally changed my life!

  18. Tolu 4.27.2013 at 2:03 pm #

    So just started using this website. This is the second recipe i have tried and it is by far my favorite green smoothie that I have ever had. I read a bunch of the comments about not liking coconut water. I also am not a fan of it. However, i followed the recipe and used the coconut water and to me I can’t taste it at all. I mostly just taste the grapes and the peaches. Hope that helps.

  19. Valerie 4.27.2013 at 7:33 am #

    This smoothie was a refreshing treat! I used frozen red grapes and froze my peaches before making the smoothie. Just scrumptious!!!! I love the website. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes.

  20. Rachel 4.24.2013 at 11:15 am #

    Holy cow is this delicious! I used red grapes. Peaches + Grapes somehow taste like pomegranate. This is a new favorite.

  21. Erika 4.18.2013 at 8:53 am #

    I’m allergic to coconut.. was wondering if there’s another liquid base substitute?

    • Jadah and Jen 4.18.2013 at 9:05 am #

      Sure, Erika! You can use regular water or green tea to have a similar base. Coconut water is pretty thin and “watery,” and so are both of those bases. You could also add almond milk, rice milk, and many others! Here is an article about all the liquid bases we recommend :-)

      • Erika 4.18.2013 at 11:47 am #

        Thanks so much!! :)

  22. Jenny K 4.12.2013 at 7:21 am #

    Re: Coconut Water – I’ve started buying mine on amazon.com. It’s cheaper than at the store and a bunch shows up at my door. Makes my Prime membership worth it! I buy my superfood/seeds/fruits add-ins there, too! And supplements. And shoes!!!!!

    • Kim 5.9.2013 at 11:15 am #

      What brand coconut water do you buy in Amazon? Thanks!!

      • Jen 10.1.2013 at 7:11 am #

        I’m also curious about the brands you use…

    • Angel 10.2.2013 at 8:31 pm #

      Check out 99Cent Only stores – only 99¢ for a large can.

  23. Stephanie 4.10.2013 at 11:37 am #

    How many calories are in this smoothie?

    • Jadah and Jen 4.10.2013 at 8:11 pm #

      We don’t currently have a count for calories on any of our smoothies. We hear that people like to use “My Fitness Pal” or “Lose It” to help calculate those calories.

  24. Tinasoga 3.31.2013 at 10:36 am #

    ONE or Naked are the best:)

  25. Pandora 3.30.2013 at 12:23 am #

    Any suggestions on which brand of coconut water to buy?

    • Jen H 3.30.2013 at 6:51 pm #

      I use Zico and One.

  26. Nene 3.29.2013 at 12:16 pm #

    I have a juicer… would it be okay to juice all the ingredients and then add the coconut water? Or should I just focus on using the blender?

  27. Jody 3.24.2013 at 11:18 am #

    Penny – I used to live in NW Ohio too. I graduated from Bowling Green in 2011. There is are a couple of Trader Joes I was able to get to while I was in Ohio. I’m not saying they weren’t an investment of time to get to, but they are there. One was in Kettering (down by Dayton). The other one was in Ann Arbor. Like I said, investment of time to get there. There is The Fresh Market in Toledo on Central and Secor. High end stuff and kind of expensive. They should have it.

    I live in Southern California now and it feels like there is nothing we can’t get our hands on. I can find coconut water at the corner convenience store. We can get it at a regular grocery store like Krogers, I would be surprised if even the Target and WalMart grocery stores didn’t have it. Look for it in the health food/vegetarian section of Krogers. Otherwise, ask them to order it in or, Heaven knows, you can order it online.

  28. Penny 3.22.2013 at 12:44 pm #

    I have been looking and can’t find coconut water. What section of the grocery store is it usually in? I live in NW Ohio and we don’t have Whole Foods and Trader Joes. We do have some great local stores I can shop at that sell natural foods. Would you do a post on this product and show the different brands out there? Thanks.

    • Denise Woodward 4.10.2013 at 6:36 pm #

      Penny…I’m in NW Ohio also…Meijer and Krogers both carry coconut water.

  29. Anna 1.28.2013 at 2:31 am #

    This is by far the yummiest one I have tried yet!

    Just wondering about the amount the recipe yields though. It says 4-5 cups, is that 4-5 cups of 250ml? I usually drink a large glass and I’m wondering if that is excessive!

  30. Alana 1.22.2013 at 1:23 am #

    you guys should totally have a recipe suggestion thing somewhere :P

    As I have started almost midweek I made a smoothie with 2 handfuls of green grapes, two royal gala apples, two handfuls of baby spinach leaves, handful of walnuts and some lactose free passionfruit yogurt. Was yummy!

    • Jen H 1.23.2013 at 6:47 pm #

      Great idea!!! If you take some pics of your smoothie ingredients, maybe I can create a fan recipe section where I post some of your favs. :) Email me pics if you have any: simplegreensmoothies.jen(at)gmail.com

  31. Suzanne 1.19.2013 at 5:05 pm #

    Hi there – I’m really enjoying your simple & yummy recipes – thank you! And, very glad to see some without banana, as I am sensitive to them (they give me cramps for some reason). Thanks :)

  32. Christina 1.7.2013 at 5:15 am #

    Do you remove the skin from the peach or blend it with the skin?

    • Jen H 1.7.2013 at 8:36 am #

      Hey Christina— we keep the skin on (just make sure to wash it first with a veggie wash). We pretty much keep the skin on most of our fruits and veggies (bananas and oranges are exceptions)— it provides additional fiber and nutrients and blend pretty well.

  33. CARLA 1.4.2013 at 7:48 am #

    Should you ever add ice or is juice and the frozen juice enough

  34. Tee @ 14by14 1.3.2013 at 7:08 pm #

    I made this yesterday, and had it again for breakfast today… so yummy. I’ve posted it on my blog.

    http://14by14blog.wordpress.com/2013/01/04/30-day-green-smoothie-challenge/

    • Jen H 1.3.2013 at 7:14 pm #

      Glad you like– it’s one of my favorites. :) I love your double walled cup— just perfect for this.

  35. Ali 1.2.2013 at 7:47 pm #

    I am in love. I was inspired by the “peach coconut” title and made my own version for lunch. I used 2 peaches, 1 cup of fresh mango, 2 cups spinach, about 3/4 cup of coconut milk and half an avocado. The texture is amazing – so creamy! I put it in the freezer for an hour or so and am eating it with a spoon. It’s the best natural ice cream I’ve ever had!

    I’ve joined your 30 day challenge and can’t wait to make green smoothies a new habit :)

    • Jen H 1.3.2013 at 12:42 pm #

      Freezing it is a great idea! This might just be the best ice cream out there! Thanks for being so adventurous and sharing it with us Ali!

  36. twashia 1.1.2013 at 12:09 pm #

    I’m excited about starting my ‘SMOOTHIE JOURNEY’….but I was wondering if everyone was drinking only smoothies for the next 30 days or if you are just drinking them as a ‘meal replacement”? Thanks so much! HAPPY HOLIDAYS to ALL:)

    • Jen H 1.1.2013 at 5:36 pm #

      Hi Twashia. I will be drinking green smoothies as meal replacements for 1-2 meals a day. When I do eat an actual meal, it will be a clean eating kinda meal (which means no red meat, refined sugars, refined grains or dairy). Hope that helps!

  37. sarah 12.30.2012 at 12:46 pm #

    could you use rice milk instead of almond milk??? looks yummy xx

  38. Sandy 12.12.2012 at 7:12 am #

    My husband loves coconut water but I am not loving it as much. Some recipes I am fine with it and others I use almond milk instead. Depending on the recipe, it works out most of the time to replace the coconut water with almond milk. I have noticed that recipes with spinach go well with almond milk and recipes with kale go well with coconut water.

    • Jadah S 12.15.2012 at 1:07 pm #

      Sandy, I totally agree with almond milk tasting better with spinach. Kale tends to taste great with water or coconut water and a squeeze of lime or lemon.

      • Sandy 12.22.2012 at 11:28 am #

        Yes Jadah- I agree with adding a squeeze of lemon juice. Sometimes I add a think slice of lemon. That lemon zest adds a little something :)

      • Sandy 12.22.2012 at 11:37 am #

        I add the lemon when I use kale. Do you add the lemon when you use coconut water?

      • Jadah S 12.28.2012 at 1:14 pm #

        Lime tastes great with coconut water, so I’m sure lemon would too. Let me know how it turns out for you. :-)

  39. TIFFANY 12.11.2012 at 1:08 pm #

    I agree! I am not a big fan of the coconut water~or coconut for that matter! Any ideas on what to substitue? I love this idea-with no bananas-Thank you much for this!!

    • Jadah S 12.15.2012 at 1:06 pm #

      Hi Tiffany! You can definitely replace any recipe that calls for coconut water with water. And since grapes are a high water content fruit, 1 cup of water will do just fine. Almond milk is another alternative, but it will make it thicker and creamier.

  40. Lydia 12.9.2012 at 9:24 am #

    What can I replace the coconut water with? I’m thinking water and maybe a teaspoon of coconut oil.

    • Jen H 12.12.2012 at 2:21 pm #

      Hello Lydia. You can just use water for this. And if you wanted to add coconut oil, which has some amazing health benefits including appetite suppressant and antibacterial properties, feel free to add that as well. It will change the texture though, just so you are aware. You can learn more about coconut oil here (it’s my favorite superfood!).

    • amanda 1.3.2013 at 7:51 pm #

      Tried Coconut milk? Super yummy n easy to add to anything.

  41. Darcie 11.8.2012 at 7:18 pm #

    I’m so glad I found this website! Due to bananas making me sick for some weird reason, I stopped drinking green smoothies. I’ve been craving them like mad recently and happy to see you have some options with NO banana!

    • Jen H 11.9.2012 at 5:34 am #

      Welcome Darcie! My husband isn’t a banana fan so I try to take turns making some with and without banana (he appreciates this part of our website too). As we explore some more great “No banana recipes,” we will make sure to add to the recipe section. If you find any new ones you like, please share with us! Have a great weekend!
