We’ve made another fantastic green smoothie for those of you who want to add a little more greens to your diet! This Peach Spinach Smoothie is packed full of baby spinach, but you don’t even taste it. The flavor comes from the sweet peaches and banana, and it’s delicious. Try it for yourself!
While I love baby spinach and will add it to drinks, salads and almost anything else, getting my husband to eat it is like pulling teeth. But I’ve been able to convince him to have it more often with the yummy green smoothies we’ve been making lately, like this Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie.
So, if you’re hesitant to try a green smoothie (or if you love them and just want to try something new), this Peach Spinach Smoothie will really hit the spot. It’s sweet and mellow, and the spinach just blends right in with the rest of the ingredients. You won’t taste it!
How to Make a Peach Spinach Smoothie
You may see down in the recipe below that I suggested that you blend the spinach with the milk first. There’s a very practical reason for this: If you toss all the ingredients in the blender together, you may end up with chunks of spinach in your smoothie. While that may be okay for most of us, for the kiddos and reluctant greens eaters (cough, cough, hubby), blending it well is super important. So make sure you do that first!
And here are a few more tips:
- Use frozen or fresh peaches for this peach spinach smoothie. While we used frozen, fresh works fine and actually gives it a little more flavor. They’re just not in season for us right now. Boo! But if you do use fresh, non-frozen peaches, you’ll need to add some ice to your smoothie (about a cup).
- Freeze your bananas first. I recommend this for any smoothie recipe that calls for a banana. I think I mentioned before that I keep Ziploc bags of bananas in my freezer all the time. It’s so handy to just reach for one whenever I need it! I freeze overripe bananas as well as just ripe ones. The overripe bananas are extra sweet, though.
- Thin smoothies with milk or juice. In this instance, you’ll want to use a little extra almond milk if your smoothie is too thick. Personally, I don’t think there’s such a thing as a smoothie that’s too thick!

When you use spinach in smoothies, do you measure it loosely or packed?

I honestly just grab handfuls and throw it in, personally. LOL But I would pack it. The flavor is really mild with baby spinach, so I think the more you can squeeze in, the better!
