Our Peach Probiotic Smoothie is made with three very simple ingredients and served icy cold in a fun coconut sugar-rimmed glass. Blend up a pitcher of this mocktail to serve at a summer pool party or sip it on the patio before it gets too hot out!
Summer pretty much here… which is the perfect time to blend up a smoothies to stay healthy and cool off.
Summer also means it’s time for our Thrive Summer Reset. From July 6-12, we will be hosting a live community reset with daily green smoothies, plant-powered snacks and meals to look + feel your best this summer.
What’s in this Peach Probiotic Smoothie?
There’s only 3 ingredients in this smoothie. I hope you make it if you’re trying to eat better but still love a sweet fun treat. 😉
Spinach adds fiber and phytonutrients
Spinach is so versatile when it comes to neutral flavors in smoothies. That’s why we’ve included it here. I know it may seem a little strange (at first) to include spinach in a peach probiotic smoothie recipe, but trust with me!
Anytime you can add a little extra boost of vitamins and minerals, fiber, and other nutrients into your day is plus. Spinach is chock full of iron, vitamins A, C, and K, and loads of dietary fiber to keep your tummy happy.
Kombucha helps the gut
This Probiotic Smoothie is a little different than our typical green smoothie recipes— thanks to the kombucha. We use kombucha here for several reasons. First, kombucha is rich in enzymes and probiotics due to the natural fermentation process.
Keeping our digestive tract in tip-top shape is key to overall good health. Kombucha is made from fermented black, green, or white tea that is sweetened with sugar which feeds the culture, known as a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). I like to make my own kombucha (it’s really easy), but I also like to buy new flavors at the store too.
Nowadays you’ll find kombucha in just about every flavor you can imagine and in every grocery and convenience store refrigerator case. If you haven’t been a kombucha fan before, we implore you to try blending up this Peach Probiotic Smoothie recipe to reap the benefits.
My favorite store-bought brands of kombucha are:
- Health-Ade: Passion Fruit-Tangerine
- GTS Living Food: Gingerade
- Suja: Peach Kombucha
- GTS Living Foods: Watermelon Wonder
To be honest, I was a little nervous the first time I popped open a bottle of kombucha. I’d heard so many things about, so I had to try it for myself. I’m glad I did. I really enjoy a daily glass or two and the benefits I get from it.
One small note about kombucha: It is a naturally fermented beverage, and it does contain a very small percentage of alcohol, about that of a non-alcoholic beer, or even less. If that is something you avoid for whatever reason, total swap it out for coconut water and a splash of sparkling water so the Peach Probiotic Smoothie still has some fizz.
Peaches add a creamy natural sweetness
When it comes to the fruit in this recipe, we really love peaches. They are summer’s best fruit, in my not-so-humble opinion. Nothing beats a good peach. Plus, they are lower on the GI scale, which also helps your gut. (High sugar, refined foods are hard on your gut.)Print
The tastiest blend of frozen peaches, spinach, and kombucha with a coconut sugar rim for a refreshing summery drink to help heal your gut. This Peach probiotic smoothie is deceptively good for you!
