Why You’ll Love This Peach Pineapple Smoothie Recipe
This simple recipe combines the calm, muted peach flavors with sweet pineapple chunks to give you a delicious smoothie with tropical vibes despite the cooler weather that’s coming.
Speaking of colder weather, this smoothie is an easy way to get a good amount of vitamin C to give your immune system a boost – which is always a great thing! Additionally, you’ll be getting protein, healthy fats, and 10g of dietary fiber, which is the perfect balance of macronutrients and a great way to keep you feeling full and satisfied for hours.
Unlike some other smoothies, there’s no added sugar in this healthy smoothie – just natural sweetness from the fruit…win!
Ingredients You’ll Need
This smoothie recipe uses simple ingredients that are easy to keep on hand for when you’re in the mood for it.
To make it, you’ll need:
Peach slices – you can use fresh peaches, but I generally prefer to use frozen peaches because it’s easier to keep on hand and eliminates the need for ice cubes
Pineapple chunks – again, I prefer to use frozen pineapple, but you could use fresh pineapple or even pineapple juice here
Unsweetened almond milk – this is my go-to liquid for smoothies, it’s so light and refreshing and helps to give the smoothie a smooth and creamy texture
Protein powder – I opted for unflavored collagen peptides because it doesn’t alter the taste, but you could also opt for a plant-based protein powder
Chia seeds – these add healthy fats, particularly omega 3 fatty acids. Flaxseeds or hemp hearts are other options too. Read more about the health benefits of seeds and seed cycling here: Seed Cycling For PCOS: Does It Actually Work?
Vanilla extract – this adds a bit more flavor dimension to the smoothie. You could skip this ingredient if you opt to use a vanilla protein powder though
Optional: add some fresh or frozen banana for a sweeter, more banana flavored smoothie
Now, let’s talk about how to actually make this simple recipe.
How To Make It
One of my favorite things about smoothies is that they’re usually such easy recipes – and this one is no different!
All you’re going to do is add all of your ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend on high power for 30-45 seconds or until smooth.
Then, pour the smoothie mixture into a glass and enjoy!
Variations & Substitutions
No almond milk? Use any milk of choice. Or substitute coconut water, coconut milk, or orange juice for more tropical vibes.
No collagen peptides? Use whey protein powder or a plant-based protein powder. You can use a vanilla flavored protein powder too – just omit the vanilla extract.
To make this recipe vegan, ensure you use a vegan protein powder.
No chia seeds? Substitute flax seeds or hemp seeds.
Want even more natural sweetness? Add half of a ripe banana, honey, or some maple syrup!
Add a handful of dark leafy greens like spinach or kale to increase the nutritional value.
No frozen fruit? Fresh fruit or canned fruit are great options too – just look for canned fruit that’s canned in water or 100% fruit juice rather than heavy syrup if you’re conscious of the calorie or carbohydrate amount.
Prefer to eat your food rather than drink it? Make it a smoothie bowl by using only 1 cup of almond milk and pouring the smoothie into a bowl. Top with seeds, granola, shredded coconut, or fresh fruit.
Prefer a thicker smoothie? Add some Greek yogurt to the blender.
Pour any leftover smoothie into a silicone popsicle mold to enjoy a hot summer day (this one is my favorite popsicle mold!)
