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!
