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.

    Really great!! Used homemade coconut milk; and added a couple of the cashew/coconut MCT frozen cubes to increase creaminess and make it a meal. Then added a date for a little more sweetness – completely delicious! Thanks for another great recipe!

  5. Annette Vos says:

    REally delicious! I haven’t found organic Peaches here in town yet but had frozen ones on hand. This may be my favorite this week in the 10 day smoothie challenge.

  6. Karina says:

  9. Mary B says:

    Not a huge peach fan but with coconut milk and orange it wasn’t too bad.

  10. Bonnie Primm says:

    Creamy Deliciousness! It’s not very sweet but It’s still good!

  11. Andrea says:

    Love coconut milk and peach. I was really looking forward to this one. I think a banana might help sweeten it up and improve the consistency and texture: it was a little thin to me. More of a juice than a smoothie.

  12. Jessie says:

    Sweet, creamy, with a tart finish (thanks to the orange). Loved this smoothie!

  13. Sarah says:

    I love this smoothie. It is just the right amount of sweetness!

  14. April R Eckert says:

    Another winner! I am realizing I was stuck in a smoothie rut. Peaches are really good in a smoothie. These recipes were helpful in getting me trying new combos. Peach and orange!

  15. Dawn says:

    Ummm! Peachy! Coconut Peach on Day 8 of the Challenge! I poured in the whole can of coconut milk. (I hate keeping the remainder in the fridge picking up food smells and tastes.) Thus I used a whole orange and a good helping of spinach. Along with fresh peaches I had in the freezer. Delicious!

  16. Pam Izzo says:

    Really liked this one. Not as sweet as most of the others. Very refreshing.

    Coconut Peach Smoothie was amazing, I added extra coconut milk

    This is my favorite! I loved It! Gonna make it again and try it as a meal replacement.

  23. Tam Tam says:

    Swapped out the peaches for mangoes and added coconut butter and organic soy milk instead of coconut milk. Then added a bit of pea protein, this was the sweetest smoothie yet, but mmmhm mmhm good!

  24. Azizah Hanif says:

    day 8 for summer challenge.
    i love smothiesssssss ♥️

  25. Sophia Allison says:

    Another one for my list, so refreshing on a hot Summer’s day. Love the peach & orange combo

  26. Clara says:

    I don’t like coconut milk, so I used water instead. I’m sure my smoothie did not have the creamy factor that the milk would have given it. But, the peach and orange flavors were great together! I added a couple of tablespoons of unsweetened flaked coconut. That enhanced the flavor also! Yummy!

  27. Andre L says:

    Day 8 of Smoothie Challenge – Coconut Peach. This was very creamy and delicious! I’ll try this one again with even more peach ! @simplegreenamoothies #simplegreensmoothies

  28. Meagan says:

    I subbed apricots for peaches since they are fresh picking off the tree right now. This was creamy for sure and I added double the vanilla but was still a little boring to drink.

  29. Christina says:

    Enjoyed the coconut peach smoothie recipe tasted like a healthier version of a creamsicle yummy

  30. Eri says:

    I couldn’t taste peaches much in this smoothie. It tasted like coconut with sourness from frozen peaches…I think peaches that I used didn’t have good flavor. Probably, it would be different if I had sweet peaches…I had to add some frozen bananas.

  31. Kimberly S Robinson says:

    This was good, but it wasn’t my favorite, possibly because I used frozen peaches, which weren’t as sweet-tart as fresh ones would’ve been. Because my peaches didn’t have that pop of flavor (even with the orange added), I think the coconut milk made it more mellow than I’m used to, since I mostly use water in all of my green smoothies. Overall, though, I can’t wait to try this again with fresh peaches.

  32. Samantha says:

    My smoothie didn’t taste very peachy, but I’m guessing that’s due to the fact that I used dairy milk instead of coconut milk. I’d probably try it with water next time.

  33. Jennifer A. says:

    This one wasn’t very flavorful, but then again, I had to use frozen peaches. I’m sure juicy ripe peaches would improve the flavor significantly! I added some vanilla and coconut smoothie cubes to give it a little boost.

  34. Julie Quinn says:

    This tasted mostly of coconut to me. My peaches from the farmer’s market were not very good, so I also put in a couple of apricots. May try again with better peaches. Still creamy goodness with so so peaches.

  35. Holly P. says:

    LOOOVED this one! I really like the creaminess of coconut milk in this. I wasn’t sure how the peach and orange would go together….but I was very pleasantly surprised 🙂
