Fresh ginger brings out the natural sweetness of ripe fruit to create this protein-packed breakfast smoothie – perfect for any time of the year.
No surprises here, but I have another delicious smoothie to share with you! This Blueberry Ginger Peach Smoothie not only tastes amazing, but is also a fantastic source of antioxidants and vitamins. When in season, making this with freshly picked berries and peaches is seriously one of my favorite things. But it still tastes great with frozen or canned produce as well!
- Peach: Juicy and naturally sweet, with a hint of acidity that balances out the flavors.
- Blueberries: Bright and fresh, slightly tart and sweet, and makes the smoothie a beautiful color.
- Banana: Adds a creaminess and lots of vitamins to the smoothie.
- Fresh ginger: Slightly peppery and sweet, it pairs deliciously with fruit and heightens the natural sweetness. If you don’t have fresh ginger, ginger paste is a great alternative to keep in your fridge.
- Vanilla protein powder: Use your favorite! Plant-based or milk-based, the protein helps to keep you feeling full until lunch.
- Flaxseed meal: Mostly flavorless, but adds a ton of nutritional value with omega-3s, fiber, and antioxidants.
How to Make a Blueberry Ginger Peach Smoothie
Start your Blueberry Ginger Peach Smoothie by adding peach slices to your blender.
Next, you’ll add your blueberries.
Followed by a fresh or frozen banana.
Sprinkle in the flaxseed meal.
Then add fresh slices or cubes of ginger.
Finish with your favorite protein powder and some water.
Blend everything together, adding ice until you’ve reached your desired consistency.
Pour evenly into two or more glasses, garnish with extra blueberries (if you’re feeling fancy), and enjoy your Blueberry Ginger Peach Smoothie.
Change Things Up
- Switch the berry. Ginger and peach pair well with lots of berries. Try blackberries or raspberries instead!
- Change out the flaxseed. Try it with chia seeds or hemp seeds for a different nutritional boost.
- Replace the water. Instead of water, you could use almond milk, plain Greek yogurt, or dairy milk to adjust the consistency of your smoothie.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I still need to add ice to frozen fruit?
If you use frozen fruit, you don’t need to add ice to get the frosty, smoothie consistency, unless you want it thicker.
Can you leave skin on peaches for smoothies?
Yes you can! Especially if you have a high-powered blender, you won’t even notice if you leave the skin on.
How do I store leftover smoothie?
You can freeze it for up to 3 months, or keep it in the fridge for 24-36 hours (although the consistency will get thinner the longer you wait to finish it).
