Fresh vs. Frozen Peaches

When peach season hits, it’s hard to not want to put them in 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. You simply can’t beat a summery peach green smoothie during anytime of year.

How to freeze peaches

If you find a deal on fresh peaches and buy a bunch. You can easily freeze them to use in this smoothie. Here’s how to do it so they don’t stick to together:

  1. Cut the peach in half.
  2. Remove the pit and cut into quarters.
  3. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, making sure they don’t touch. Freeze for 1-2 hours and then toss into a freezer safe bag.

If you’re not able to find peaches for this peach smoothie recipe, check your frozen fruit section. Most grocery stores carry them frozen ( I use them most of the time). They aren’t as flavorful as a fresh summer peach, but they’re already cut and frozen for you.

What’s in a Peach Smoothie

Most peach smoothies use yogurt, cow’s milk or ice cream. These ingredients can cause digestive and skin issues, which are no bueno around here. Yet have no fear— this healthy peach smoothie recipe uses plant-based whole foods to create a simple, 4-ingredient smoothie that tastes even better.

Besides peaches, this smoothie also includes a coconut milk, spinach and orange. The orange gives this smoothie an extra boost of vitamin C. The sweet-tart flavor of the orange also helps bring out the “peachiness” of the peaches.

Coconut milk adds healthy fat and creaminess. Depending on where you stand in the healthy fats world, you can use low fat or full fat coconut milk. The natural fats in coconut will help curb your appetite and aid in the absorption of vitamins and minerals.

    Peaches are a great although not as sweet as I thought it would be. I like the extra boost from oranges and addition of protein powder.

    This had a really nice flavor. I loved adding peaches! I’ll be doing this more!

    This is creamy deliciousness! I use full fat coconut milk and it makes this smoothie so good, plus keeps me full longer. Add some chia and take it up a notch.

    Very good. I used full fat coconut milk which made it very creamy but had to cut the coconut flavor with water.

    Needed more peach flavor. Added a tsp of coconut sugar to round out the flavors

    Peachy good to me! I love peaches and I could definitely taste them in this smoothie. I think the fresh peaches I had were sweeter than the frozen peaches I used; however, the smoothie was still sweet enough to my satisfaction! I liked using the coconut milk also because it thickened the smoothie.

    So So SO SO good!!! I used ripe peaches and threw in a few frozen pieces of peach for coldness (making quite a large smoothie!), protein boost, and topped with some hemp hearts. LOVED it!

    Didn’t care for this one because I don’t like peaches. But I gave it a shot.

    I found this smoothie to be pretty mild in peach flavour when made into a meal smoothie using matcha and the magic trio (hemp hearts, chia seeds, flax seeds). Though that could be from adding a coconut milk smoothie cube and using kale instead of spinach. Still made for a tasty breakfast!

    This one is the first one from 10 Days challenge I don’t like this one that much. To thick for me.

      not a big fan on this flavor but it could be because of my vanilla protein I added. Idk

    Creamy and dreamy! Would be even better if my peaches were a little more ripe before they started to rot. Guess that’s how it goes with fresh fruit sometimes. Boosted with Coconut milk smoothies cubes (instead of just coconut milk) for extra richness and more healthy fats.
