Peach Spinach Smoothie Ingredients
This is such a fun smoothie to make + sip! It’s the perfect post workout drink because it’s easy to make, with just 4 rawkstar ingredients:
- Spinach– a superfood leafy green packed with iron.
- Grapes– loaded with vitamins C and K, as well as nutrients that help keep the heart healthy.
- Peaches– rich in antioxidants, which help fight chronic disease and cancer.
- Coconut water– contains electrolytes, which aid in workout recovery.
Basically, this peach spinach smoothie is a powerhouse of wellness… plus it tastes delicious.
Green vs red grapes
Is there really a difference in nutrition between green and red grapes? The easy answer is… not really. If there’s one variety you like best, then go for it. Yet the darker in color the grape is, the more antioxidants it contains. So if that’s why your popping grapes, then aim for the darker red varieties.
I think green grapes are more tart, and pair well with the sweet peaches + tangy coconut water in this smoothie, so I typically blend those.

To peel or not to peel peaches
Depending on the type of blender you have, you may want to peel your peaches. Yet if your blender can handle the skin, then I def recommend keeping it. Many of the nutrients from peaches are found in that fuzzy skin, so taking it off causes you to lose some value. Looking for more peach smoothies? Check these incredible recipes out:
Green Smoothie Ingredient Swaps
As with any green smoothie, I want you to get all the benefits you can. If that means swapping out an ingredient for one you can more easily find, ingest, or grow, then go for it! Spinach can be swapped out for Swiss chard or baby kale. Peaches can be swapped for almost any other stone fruit (apricots, nectarines, plums), or mango. Swap coconut water out for plain water, or even brewed tea. Obviously the flavor + consistency will change based on the swaps you make, so if the blend doesn’t feel right, don’t be afraid to add in extra fruit or liquid for the perfect drink.
Want to turn this smoothie into a meal replacement? Adding 1 serving of my protein powder recipe will boost this smoothie by 10 grams of protein. This is the cleanest protein powder on the market, specifically designed for smoothies, so it works with any kind of smoothie you make! It also adds 4 grams of healthy fat as well as 7 grams of fiber, which helps your body turn that smoothie into clean energy.
Freezing Ingredients for Smoothies
Peaches are great smoothie ingredients, yet they have such a short growing season. Honestly, I buy them by the crate at Costco and Trader Joe’s, then slice them up and freeze. This way I can use them throughout the year, and I know they were super ripe + fresh when frozen. When freezing, I slice peaches into wedges, then lay them out on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Freeze for 1 hour, then toss the wedges into a freezer-safe container for storage.
Did you know grapes are also great frozen? My kids love to eat frozen grapes for snacks in the summer, yet freezing them also makes them the perfect ‘fruit cube’ for smoothies. Just lay grapes out on a tray lined with parchment, freeze for 1 hour, then store in a freezer safe container.
If using frozen grapes in this smoothie, make sure to up the liquid to 3/4 a cup instead of 1/2. This is because grapes act as a liquid and a fruit in smoothies, but not when frozen.

I enjoyed my modified version of this smoothie. I used alkaline smoothie cubes instead of the spinach and used green grapes. Additionally I included oats, almond butter, matcha, chia seeds, and hemp hearts. The result was the perfect balance between tart, from the citrus in the cubes, and sweetness, from the grapes and peaches. Next time I’ll probably use a milder fat like avocado or coconut oil.
Loved this smoothie! I didn’t have any green grapes (which I love in smoothies) so I substituted blueberries and it’s a new favorite!
Interesting swap Alannah! We’ll have to give that a try. Blueberries are so full of antioxidants that it would be a great add wherever possible.
Beautiful bright green color and delicious! Sweeter than I expected, but I loved it. It’s a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth or sugar craving, without being unhealthy. I will definitely be making this one again!
I never would have thought to combine grapes & peaches on my own. I used frozen grapes…and this was SO GOOD!
Nice taste but lacking a bit of sweetness, probably due to not having fresh peaches. I used frozen but still very good.
Lots of rawkstars are saying the same, Angele. Def give it a blend with fresh peaches and let us know what you think. 🙂
Adding green grapes to a smoothie made a beautiful green smoothie. The taste was unbelievable. I will try making more often.
I love the addition of the grapes in this one with the peaches. It gave it an extra sweetness. I froze my grapes so they seemed extra sweet.
Freezing grapes is a great way to add coldness to that smoothie too!
The Grapes made this one yummy and never drank the smoothie so fast, I had to put it down and walk away.
This smoothie was the sweetest of all the ones I had before, I did add half of banana and that may have put it over the top of sweetness for me! It was still delicious with chia seeds also.
This was my least favorite green smoothie in the 10 day smoothie challenge but I also do not like coconut water. But I think adding grapes was another surprise. I love expanding my horizons!
I want to try this one again when I have coconut water, and green grapes. I used plain water and red grapes, and it was good, but I think it would be better with the added benefits of the coconut water, and like the author says, the tang of the green grapes vs. the red that I used.
I added 1/2 banana and collagen to make it a little more creamy! Very good!.
Mine turned out like juice because none of my I were frozen but I did enjoy the sweetness of this recipe. Next week one I’ll freeze the fruit ahead of time.
Very good! I did need to add more liquid to this one as well, as the ingredients would not blend. I would make this one again as well!
I’m normally not a coconut water fan at all, but it was really good in this smoothie. This is definitely one that I’m keeping in my smoothie rotation.
