Peach Green Tea Smoothie – Frozen peaches, green tea, Greek yogurt, and honey are blended together making the most delicious, frosty, and filling smoothie you’ll make this summer!
Somehow I’ve managed to let summer almost slip away without sharing a new smoothie recipe with you guys. I actually don’t think I’ve made a new smoothie recipe since January…how is this possible?! Lucky for you I froze some of my Colorado peaches a couple weeks ago and I was really in the mood for a peachy smoothie this past weekend after our overly warm weather.
Back in January I made a Raspberry Green Tea Smoothie and it is by far my most popular smoothie recipes on the blog. I can’t say I’m surprised because it’s pretty darn tasty and is unique because it uses green tea as the liquid instead of milk or juice. I just happened to have more green tea in my pantry so I brewed a cup, chilled it, then added it to this delicious Peach Green Tea Smoothie!
This smoothie not only has the healthy benefits of green tea and peaches in it, but it also has added protein thanks to Greek yogurt. The Greek yogurt makes this smoothie a little more filling as well as adding some creaminess. If you can’t have dairy try mixing in a non-dairy yogurt instead. I sweetened the smoothie with honey because I love the combination of peaches and honey together, not to mention honey and tea are a classic pairing.
I tend to like my smoothies extra thick, probably because it makes me feel like I’m having a milkshake for breakfast rather than what it really is, a healthy smoothie. If you like your smoothies thinner I would just omit the ice or not add as much, but with the weather still being hot, I say the thicker and frostier the smoothie the better!

OK so I have a question… I really can’t stand the taste or smell of green tea but I hear there are amazing benefits to drinking it so what I’m wondering is can you actually taste the green tea in the smoothies or is it hidden by the taste of the fruit of the fruit… I’m anxious To hear what others have to say
I actually don’t like to drink green tea either, it’s a little too grassy smelling and tasting for me. The green tea flavor in this smoothie is very mild, the peaches do a great job masking that potent flavor. If it’s still too much for you just add a couple more peach slices and a little extra honey. Hope it works out for you! Also, check out the Raspberry Green Tea Smoothie I have if you’re looking for another option.

Would you happen to have the nutritional values for the calories, carbs, fat, fiber, protein, etc…for the Peach Green Tea Smoothie?
Hi Vicki, unfortunately I don’t calculate calories at this time. I have heard that MyFitnessPal has a good calculator for figuring that out.

It’s a nice change up from the berries Nicole! :-)

I drink green tea often but always forget to add it to a smoothie. This peach smoothie is the perfect way to start the day!
You have to try adding it to a smoothie Ashley, I think you’d love it!
Kait @ Our Foodie Appetite says
Ooh yummy!! I love freezing fruit for a smoothie, keeps it cold longer and more refreshing! Love the unique addition of the green tea too. Will definitely be trying this!
Thanks Kait! Frozen fruit is definitely the way to go in smoothies!
What a brilliant idea! I’ve never used tea in a smoothie and I bet it tastes fabulous! Peach smoothies are my fave – always with honey! Love this, girl..I’ll have to pick up a peach or twelve asap and get to blending!
Tea in smoothies is wonderful Julia, you have to give it a try! :-)
Sharon @ What The Fork Food Blog says
This smoothie looks so refreshing. I love green tea and peaches together (namely the Starbucks Peach Green Tea Lemonade lol) but I can’t wait to try your smoothie version!
If you like the peach green tea lemonade Sharon then I’m sure you’ll love this smoothie!
Patricia @ Grab a Plate says
You’re so smart to have frozen peaches! I’ll try next year! This sounds so tasty — peaches (and “cream”) and honey and tea…divine! Nice and thick, too!
I can’t go a whole year without my Palisade peaches Patricia, so freezing them is the way to go! :-)
Can you use bottles green tea?
Yes, bottled green tea will work.

Thanks Lisa! Green tea and fruit really are a delicious combination!
