Peach Spinach Smoothie

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

Peach Spinach Smoothie Recipe

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.

  1. ALBA ROCIO CLAVIJO says:

    beautiful color, I added macadamia milk and ginger. Delicious!!

  2. Cheryl B. says:

    Didn’t have grapes for this so used peaches and banana. Used 1/2 kefir and 1/2 coconut water. Added hemp seeds and ginger.Will try the original recipe when grapes are in season.

  3. Jo Ann says:

    Yummy!

  4. Rachelle McCann says:

    As always, this was good, not my favorite, but that is probably due to the grapes I had, which were not wonderful, and a ripe fresh local peach would really make this shine. I only had frozen peaches, I will try it again when peaches are in season.

  5. Alyssa says:

    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.

  6. Alannah says:

    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!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      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.

  7. HOPE says:

    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!

  8. Holly says:

    I never would have thought to combine grapes & peaches on my own. I used frozen grapes…and this was SO GOOD!

  9. Angele LeFort says:

    Nice taste but lacking a bit of sweetness, probably due to not having fresh peaches. I used frozen but still very good.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Lots of rawkstars are saying the same, Angele. Def give it a blend with fresh peaches and let us know what you think. 🙂

  10. Sushila Shah says:

    Adding green grapes to a smoothie made a beautiful green smoothie. The taste was unbelievable. I will try making more often.

  11. Lynne says:

    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.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Freezing grapes is a great way to add coldness to that smoothie too!

  12. Dr. Aja Holmes says:

    The Grapes made this one yummy and never drank the smoothie so fast, I had to put it down and walk away.

  13. Judy says:

    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.

  14. gloria says:

    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!

  15. Bonnie C. says:

    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.

  16. Jennifer A says:

    I added 1/2 banana and collagen to make it a little more creamy! Very good!.

  17. Alicia R. says:

    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.

  18. Laura Jacobson says:

    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!

  19. Ashley Fanche says:

    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.

  20. Jque says:

    Not a fan of coconut water, but I couldn’t even taste the coconut in the smoothie. The second time I made it, didn’t have any grapes, so I substituted grapes for blueberries and it’s just as delicious.

  21. Barbara says:

    Very good. Great grape flavor.

  22. Ogechi Nwaokelemeh says:

    First time using grapes In a smoothie.. yum!

  23. Nancy Lewellen says:

    Smooth, Creamy⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Aw! Yay!! All of your stars make us do a happy dance here at SGS! 🙂

  24. Cristina Ribeiro says:

    I loved this one the best so far besides the beginners luck! Sweet, but not overly, refreshing, delicious!

  25. Linda E says:

    I used red grapes for this one. It tasted much better than I was expecting because the grapes weren’t very sweet. I would like to make it again with fresh peaches.

  26. Michelle says:

    Not my favorite. May try it without the coconut water.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Plain water can always be swapped in for coconut water here. Just remember that leaving it out will affect the amount of potassium and antioxidants you’ll be getting in that smoothie.

  27. Ruby says:

    I really enjoyed this one. A little sweet, so I may do kale next time

  28. Janice says:

    I made substitutions for the foods I didn’t have and it turned out to be very good!

  29. Charity Quinn says:

    This smoothie did not make that much so it will never be a meal replacement. I also had to make it with coconut milk rather than coconut water. I have to say that it is not a favorite. I did not like the peach flavor with the spinach.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      The 10-Day Green Smoothie is all about figuring out which flavors are your faves! Def be sure to add clean protein and healthy fat to make it a true and filling meal replacement though!

  30. Betty says:

    Don’t like the grapes very much. Kind of sour.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Hi Betty. Def give some red or purple grapes a try next time you blend this one. That should do the trick!

  31. Karen says:

    The peaches are so yummy in the smoothie! Really like the addition of grapes as well.

  32. Sharon says:

    I did a little bit of swapping. Oranges and bananas for the peaches. Really yummy

  33. Cynthia says:

    The texture of the grapes is not my fav. Love the peach flavor.

  34. Grace says:

    Simple and delicious. This time I substituted anti-inflammatory smoothie cubes for the peaches, which created a strong tangy flavour. I use red instead of green grapes because that’s what I had on hand. I also added a few kale stems and half a scoop of hemp protein powder.

  35. Shirley says:

    Yum, one of my favourites!

  36. Churice R says:

    I am loving this one, the grapes are the Star of this smoothie. Coconut water was flavored with pineapple is a good balance. Yum!

  37. Michele says:

    Love this smoothie! Smooth and sweet! I used red grapes, as that is what I already had, plus added 1/2 banana. Will be making this one again!

  38. Pat L. says:

    This one was good for a sweeter taste! I did add 3 Berry antioxidant cubes though so could’ve contributed to the sweetness. Will definitely try this one again as written…YUM!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Those berries will def up the sweet factor, yet way to blend like a pro Pat!

  39. Dawn says:

    This was good! I made it with kale, giving a more earthy taste.

  40. Judith Walter says:

    It was OK. Not great but good at least it doesn’t have as many calories. I added Chia seeds and protein powder

  41. Joyce says:

    This one was not my favorite. It may have been I used Kale instead of spinach. I had some fresh kale from a friend’s garden, and was excited about using it. I may have added too much. I added strawberries to help with the flavor. I will try it again with the spinach.

    • Grace says:

      Good for you for trying something different! I have found that kale has a stronger flavour and works best with sweeter fruits like pineapple, mango or banana. Alternatively spinach is better with lighter fruits like peaches and grapes, as you’ve learned too. Keep blending and trying new things!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      I’ve totally done the same, Joyce! Kale has a stronger flavor than spinach. If you do end up trying it with the kale again, make sure your banana is extra ripe. The sweetness will help to counter the strength of the kale flavor.

  42. Debbie A Meshishnek says:

    Really like the grapes for the added health benefits and great flavor. I used the red ones which also added sweetness.

  43. Laura Young says:

    Super tasty and refreshing!

  44. 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

  45. Jenn. says:

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

  46. 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.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      I mean, if we could give this smoothie a super hero cape we would, right? 🙂 So glad you shared the tips and tricks you used, Dora.

  47. Jeannette Pepin says:

    Really like the peach and grape combination. Lots of health benefits and good hydration from coconut water. Very fresh and light!

  48. Liz says:

    My favourite so far!!!❤️

  49. Amanda Peters says:

    I could really taste the peach and grapes in this one
