This Peach Smoothie recipe with pineapple is all natural, sweetened with honey and fruit, but it tastes like a decadent dessert!
Looking for a delicious breakfast or pick-me-up in the afternoon? This smoothie is perfect for that, and it tastes like an island vacation.
A delicious smoothie is a healthy option when you want something sweet, and this one is full of nutritious ingredients! When peaches are in, I'm buying them by the bagful!
This healthy peach smoothie recipe is vegan, too. For anyone doing the Daniel Fast, simply leave out the honey.
Starting your day with a fruit smoothie is a great way to get your daily antioxidants and fiber. As you can see, it's refreshing by the pool on a hot day!
What You Need to Make It
We used fresh peaches to make this peach smoothie recipe. Peaches contain Vitamin C, folic acid, fiber, and antioxidants. Start your day this Peaches and Cream parfait alongside this smoothie!
Pineapple pairs so well with peaches, and gives this smoothie a tropical flavor. Pineapple is low in calories and big on flavor, which is why I used it in this easy muffin recipe. For another fun breakfast treat, check out these pineapple doughnuts. Later in the day you can whip up these Mojito Cupcakes.
You can chop your fruit in advance and stick it in a freezer bag for busy mornings, or just use frozen fruit.
I was shocked to find coconut milk had fewer calories and more calcium than cow's milk! It's really delicious in this smoothie. You'll find coconut milk in the dairy section. Do not use canned as it's full of fat and sugar.
Chia seeds are full of fiber, protein, calcium, manganese, and magnesium. An ancient food eaten by the Aztecs and Mayans, somehow the benefits of chia seeds got lost in the shuffle. These little seeds have loads of benefits, so pick them up and sprinkle them on your breakfast cereal or make this healthy oatmeal.
Isn't everything better with a little shredded coconut? This coconut oatmeal porridge is divine for breakfast and will give you lots of energy to face the day. I also sprinkle coconut on this berry breakfast parfait. This Indonesian Fruit Cocktail is a light and delicious dessert that's so easy to make with young coconut. If you haven't tasted it, you're in for a yummy treat!
Along with the peaches, pineapple, coconut milk, chia seeds, and shredded coconut, you'll need ice, a little honey, and pure vanilla extract. Add these 7 ingredients to your list for the grocery store so you have them on hand for breakfast or an afternoon snack.
How to Make It
Begin by washing and chopping your fruit.
Remove the pit from the peaches and cube them. You can leave the peach skin on or remove it.
Remove the skin from the pineapple and cube two cups. Leave a slice for garnish.
Sprinkle shredded coconut over a sheet of tin foil, and bake at 350º for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn't burn. You really have to watch it!
Place peaches, pineapple, coconut milk, ice cubes, honey and vanilla into a high powered blender and blend into a creamy smoothie.
Thicken the smoothie by mixing in ½ cup of chia seeds and let it sit for around three minutes before giving it one more quick blend.
Pour in a tall glass and top with toasted coconut and a piece of pineapple slices for garnish. Wasn't that a simple recipe for something so good? This makes 4 servings.

For a thick smoothie, add a scoop of low fat vanilla or peach yogurt. The yogurt will make this smoothie more creamy, more like a peach milkshake.
You can switch up the fruits any way you'd like! Double the peaches for more peach flavor if you don't like pineapple. Or make a peach banana smoothie! You do you!
You can absolutely use frozen instead of fresh fruit. In fact, as fruit is typically frozen right after harvesting, the nutritional value is just as good as fresh!
