Sometimes the simplest green smoothies are the best, and truly most of our smoothies fall under that category. This one is one of the simplest though— just four ingredients! When peach season hits, it’s hard to not want to put them or on everything. I love the way they sweeten up my smoothies. I freeze them by the bushel so I can enjoy the flavor of summer and fall peaches all winter long.
Coconut Peach Green Smoothie
The coconut milk makes this extra creamy and rich – almost like a peach milkshake. Adding an orange boosts up the Vitamin C level and adds an extra sweet-tart element that helps highlight the flavor of the fresh peaches. I can honestly say that this is one of my very favorites. Serves 2
2 cups spinach
2 cups coconut milk
2 cups sliced peaches*
1 orange, peeled
1. Blend spinach and coconut milk until smooth.
2. Add remaining ingredients, and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
*Any variety of peaches or nectarines is fine. Other stone fruits like apricots, plums, and cherries can also be used if peaches aren’t available.
*Use at least one frozen fruit to make it cold.
