Green Ginger-Peach Smoothie

ncGrGingPchSm1nm

If you had too much Easter candy last weekend and are craving something healthy, you may want to try this smoothie out! 🙂 This recipe is adapted from a recipe in Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food. It has lots of fresh baby spinach, fresh ginger, and frozen peaches in it. During peach season, you could use fresh peaches (it just won’t be quite as thick, because the frozen fruit helps thicken the smoothie).

This smoothie doesn’t have any dairy products in it. But I didn’t miss the dairy at all. The original recipe uses water, but I thought it was a little bland with water, so I used a peach juice blend instead. I thought this smoothie was really yummy–a very tasty way to up your spinach intake!

GREEN GINGER-PEACH SMOOTHIE by NancyC, adapted from Everyday Food

Makes about 2 (9-ounce) servings

  • 1 cup well-packed baby spinach leaves
  • 1 teaspoon peeled and grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cups frozen sliced peaches
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 1/4 cups peach juice blend (I used Dole® Orange Peach Mango Juice)

Add all ingredients in blender and mix until well-blended (you may have to help stir the mixture along with a spoon at first). Serve immediately. Makes about 18 ounces, or 1 to 2 servings.

    I make a summer time smoothie made up of a handful of spinach, oj and yogurt, and blended with a ripe banana. Even with the popularity of green smoothies, if I have one at work some body always asks –
    WHAT is THAT? I would reply ‘drain cleaner’ but the joke would probably go right over their head!

      Yes, the green smoothies may not look that appetizing, but I have always liked the ones I’ve tried! 🙂 Your version sounds really good, too!

      Your smoothie sounds good, too–I don’t think I’ve made one with cucumber yet, but that sounds really good!

    I feel like you’re talking to me with this post. 🙂 I indulged in one too many jelly beans last week. Love the flavors in this smoothie, especially the fresh ginger and peaches.
