    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.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 11.21.2014 at 8:41 am #

      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.

        Hey Bennijiggs.

        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.

    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.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 7.23.2014 at 6:06 am #

      Hey Gabby!

      Glad you still drank it! :) Keep blending those leafy greens! :)

  5. Ola 7.16.2014 at 11:58 am #

    I made this one today. It was very nice even if I did use just water for the base, so yummy.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 7.25.2014 at 8:19 am #

      Great to hear Ola!

  6. Gaelle 7.16.2014 at 6:33 am #

    This is great. Did not have grapes so I added a Granny Smith apple, 2 small kiwis.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 7.25.2014 at 8:19 am #

      How was it, Gaelle?

  7. Rose 7.10.2014 at 4:24 pm #

    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

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 7.11.2014 at 8:02 am #

      Hey Rose!

      Yes, use the almond coconut milk that you bought in place of coconut water. It will make it nice and creamy! :) Enjoy! :)

    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. ^_^

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 5.30.2014 at 7:09 am #

      We pack them tightly in measuring cups. Great question, April!

      • April 5.30.2014 at 7:37 am #

        Gotcha. Thanks again! ^_^

  10. Gail 5.27.2014 at 6:25 am #

    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!!!!
    CHEERS!!!!!

    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

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 5.24.2014 at 12:53 pm #

      Hmm… We think mint goes great with strawberries!

  12. Lynda C 5.8.2014 at 5:13 pm #

    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!

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 5.9.2014 at 9:25 am #

      Hi Lynda!
      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.

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 3.24.2014 at 9:47 am #

      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!

    • Legra 4.21.2014 at 9:58 pm #

      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.

  14. kry 1.28.2014 at 12:02 pm #

    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!

  15. Vanessa B 1.15.2014 at 11:43 pm #

    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. :)

  16. Qui H 1.12.2014 at 11:51 am #

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

  17. Abbey 11.9.2013 at 6:00 pm #

    Would blueberries work instead of grapes

  18. Rhonda 10.16.2013 at 9:26 am #

    Looks great

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. moby 7.11.2013 at 9:44 am #

    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 :-)

    • Legra 4.21.2014 at 10:01 pm #

      You can try aloe vera water that’s usually found in the ethnic or produce section of the grocery store. Another great option is green tea.

  22. 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.

  23. 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! :-)
