    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!

    Ingredients

    • 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.

    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).

    1. I made this for breakfast this morning, and we both really enjoyed it. The combination of flavors and the flavor balance are perfect. I ended up doing individual servings in my Magic Bullet cups, and only had room for two ice cubes, so they were kind of room temperature. Because of that, next time I will either freeze my banana, blueberries, peaches, or do it in the big blender so I can add more ice. Actually, using frozen blueberries and peaches would make this an all-year-around smoothie… :-) I also appreciate that this is my kind of smoothie, with no changes needed – a very unusual experience. Unless I’m using a whole cup of Greek yogurt, I always put in protein powder to get the protein level up, and flaxseed is another ingredient I always use.

      1. Wow thank you so much for your nice words Susan!!! I love mine super icy as well so I don’t blame you for using frozen fruit next time!

    2. I’m with you on the fresh fruits. I really wish we could get fresh berries all year long! I’m not going to complain since the strawberry season has just begun here in Australia, but it’s always too short! Can’t wait for summer to be here (in December!) to enjoy delicious fruits.
      I’ve never tried adding ginger to my smoothie. Gonna try that next time! Thanks for sharing :)

    3. What a pretty smoothie!! I have never added ginger to a smoothie, sounds so good!!!

      Fall has a special place in my heart too – my anniversary, sons birthday, and now another sons birthday! What I’m missing for my fall is the cooler temps and the changing of the leaves…that gets pushed to winter here, but I can deal :)

    4. I miss the fresh fruit once autumn comes, too. But wow, you really do have a lot to look forward to in the near future! How exciting and memorable this fall will be :)
      Love everything in this smoothie- you’ve reminded me to stock up on protein powder!

      1. Ohh I’m actually not due until early November!! I was just listing the many reasons I’m excited for fall – ahaha..I agree with you on smoothies!!!

    5. I gotta tell you….. I too LOVE Fall. In my book, it starts today. Seriously, I’ve already brought out the fall decorations. Love it!

      This is a great breakfast smoothie recipe…. Love the idea of combining peaches and blueberries and ginger. Can’t wait to make this for my kiddos and I!

      Have a great day Friend!!!
