Enjoy this mildly sweet, hydrating, and nutritious grape smoothie recipe. This is a perfect low sugar smoothie yet still sweet + refreshing.

This peach spinach smoothie screams summer and is the ultimate in refreshing green smoothies. It’s loaded up with heart-healthy dietary fiber and relies on refreshing fruits for its mildly sweet flavor. By the way, if you prefer a sweeter smoothie — feel free to add a banana, which also adds more potassium and will make the smoothie creamy.

Simple Ingredients for the Spinach Peach Smoothie

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.

Peach spinach smoothie protein boost

Want to turn this smoothie into a meal replacement? Adding 1 serving of Protein Smoothie Boost 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.

Ingredients for green smoothie with grapes and peaches

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 spinach peach 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.

    Super tasty and refreshing!

  2. Clareen says:

    Never thought of using grapes before in smoothies but it’s a nice change. I’m not a fan of coconut water but it hides well in smoothies & the health benefits are worth it. Great peach flavor too

  3. Jenn. says:

    Really liked this one. Used purple grapes and 2 drained and rinsed peach fruit cups. Added ice to cool it down. Yum!

  4. Dora Suarez says:

    Did I hear anti-aging? Sign me up. Just kidding but nice to know this blend has extra super powers and it was quite refreshing and tasty. I wasn’t sure how I was going to like grapes (consistency or taste) in my smoothies, but my Vitamix blended them that there was no issue with consistency (previous blender left pieces). For the taste I have to admit as I was having this post-workout I threw in some Vanilla Whey Protein and it complimented the blend well. I froze it overnight, took it out before workout and by the time I was done it was nice, creamy, cold and ready to boost me with its super powers.
