Healthy Peach Smoothie Recipe Guide

Nutritional Benefits of a
Healthy Peach Smoothie

A healthy peach smoothie recipe will make you one of the most nutritious — and delicious — meals on earth. Healthy fruit smoothies are loaded with phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes that come in a whole-food form.

Healthy fruit smoothies retain the fiber from the fruits and the vegetables you use. The fiber works to improve digestion and helps your body naturally rid itself of toxins. Fiber also helps you feel more satisfied, and maintains that feeling longer.

In addition, when fruits and vegetables are blended, the plant fibers are broken down just like when you chew them; the blender literally does most of the “chewing” for you. And chewing food more thoroughly means that you'll absorb more of the nutrients.


Peaches Make Great Healthy Smoothie Ingredients.

They're low in calories; there's just 35 in a medium size peach. Peaches are also good sources of vitamin A and vitamin C. A ripe peach's soft texture makes them easy to blend into a smoothie, and they're also easy to store in your freezer, so you'll always have a supply on hand.

Great Tip for Freezing Peaches!

Freezing cut up peaches for your smoothies takes a certain procedure for the best results.

First, start with fully ripened peaches. Cut up each peach into at least eight pieces and remove the pit. Lay the pieces on a cookie sheet or tray, keeping them separate. Place the peaches into the freezer until they freeze, about 5 hours.

Then take the frozen pieces out of the freezer and put them into freezer bags. This procedure will prevent the peach pieces from freezing together into a great big ball. You'll then be able to use only as many as you need at one time.

Recommended Starters
for Your Peach Smoothie Recipe

Most smoothie recipes call for a liquid ingredient to allow the solid components to move around inside the blender and give your smoothie the right thickness. The beverage you choose will largely determine how healthy your smoothie turns out.

What are the best beverages to use to make your smoothie as healthy as possible? The most common choices are  water, cows milk, yogurt, soy milk, nut milks, or fruit juice. To discover the pros and cons of each one, see my page on how to make a smoothie the healthy way.


Making Your Smoothie Recipes
into Complete Meals

Many smoothie recipes are relatively low in protein, so they're not complete meals by themselves. The easy solution is to add a protein source to any healthy smoothie recipe.

The simplest way to do this is by adding a couple of raw organic eggs to your basic recipe. Raw eggs won't change the taste of your smoothie at all, and the argument that they're bad for you because of the cholesterol content is just not true. Eggs are one of the most beneficial foods you can eat, especially when consumed raw.

You can also increase the protein content of your healthy smoothie recipes by adding a protein powder.  Be sure to use a high quality product; most cheap protein powders are excessively heat-processed and aren't really good for you.

There are many ways to transform your ordinary smoothie recipe into one with enhanced nutritional value. You can add superfood powders, healthy fats, herbs, spices and extra fiber. My complete guide on how to make a smoothie the healthy way has lots of tips and tricks to make your smoothie better.


Healthy Peach Smoothie Recipes

When a recipe calls for milk, I suggest you use any type of non-dairy milk product — there are many different ones: hemp, almond, soy, rice, etc. They're a healthier alternative, and easy to keep on hand.

  1. Start by pouring the liquid ingredients for each smoothie recipe into your blender.
  2. Toss in your solid ingredients: fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables.
  3. Add any optional ingredients, if you like — blending as you go.
  4. Add more liquid to reduce the thickness of your smoothie, ice to chill it, or more fruit to thicken your smoothie.
  5. You can substitute ingredients at your whim — it's fun to experiment!
