Peach Smoothie with Ginger

I’m not ready to give up on Summer just yet, stone fruits and citrus are still bountiful at the markets. Before they’re gone, I’m making a sunshine-inspired colorful drink. For this quick and easy recipe, I made a refreshing orange peach ginger smoothie to keep you cool and calm. Grab your blender and add these delicious ingredients for the ultimate nutrient-packed beverage!

Smoothies have been saving me on the daily lately! If you’re rushing out the door but don’t want to skip breakfast, need an energizing snack in the afternoon, or want a healthier treat, this orange peach ginger smoothie is for you, my friend.

Oranges

Adding the entire orange not only provides antioxidants and phytonutrients, but it’s loaded with fiber too because you include the pulp! Oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of folate, vitamin B1 (thiamine), pantothenic acid, vitamin A, calcium, copper, and potassium. Vitamin C is great if you are starting to feel a cold coming on for some adding immunity benefit.

Peaches

This stone fruit contains an excellent source of the antioxidant vitamin C. The fiber, potassium, vitamin C and choline also supports heart health. There may also be some weight loss benefits.

Some studies have shown that stone fruits have bioactive and phenolic compounds with anti-obesity and anti-inflammatory properties that may reduce cholesterol, specifically from four major phenolic compounds (anthocyanins, chlorogenic acids, quercetin, and catechins) that work together to fight off obesity-related illnesses.

Ginger

Pungent and spicy, this root adds a distinct flavor that’s addicting!  It has been used traditionally to help alleviate symptoms of gastrointestinal distress, nausea, and anti-inflammatory effects. I’m a big fan of adding ginger to my lemon mint ginger tea whenever I’m feeling like my energy is zapped or under the weather.

Flaxseed

There are three very spectacular healthy components of flaxseed; Omega-3 essential fatty acids, lignans, and fiber. The combination of these benefits has been shown to have heart-healthy effects, antioxidants, and soluble and insoluble fibers. Just one tablespoon of ground flaxseed provides 1.8 grams of Omega-3 fatty acids! A tiny nutrient powerhouse.

The benefits are incredible! The naturally sweetened smoothie contains only five simple ingredients that keep you satisfied with each slurp. Getting in nutrition each day couldn’t be any easier than this!

If you don’t have fresh peaches available frozen will work great too! Try to use fresh oranges and ginger since they add extra fiber and bolder flavors. If you need a little pick me up, don’t grab a sugar-loaded candy bar. Instead, this orange peach ginger smoothie is going to make you feel so much better!

My toddler James is usually always around when I make a big smoothie batch. He hears the motor from the blender running and he tends to sprint over, waving his sippy cup around so he can grab a taste. I wasn’t sure if he would like the ginger, but I was so pleasantly surprised that he wanted seconds! Nothing beats the heat and keeps you chill like a tall glass of flavored fruit smoothie. Cheers!

How does the layer of the ingredients affect the smoothie texture?

If you have a high-speed blender like a Vitamix, you can add tougher ingredients like ice, frozen fruits, vegetables and whole fruits to the bottom so it can break it up first. Then add any softer greens, nut butter or liquid in the blender. For a regular blender that’s not as strong, add the liquid first along with the tougher ingredients to help break it down. Then add soft fruits and powders until it’s a smooth puree. I also like to start with 1 cup ice max first, blend, then judge whether more ice is needed to get a thicker consistency.

    Very good. Fresh ginger would have been better but the only thing my grocery store had was mashed ginger in a squeeze tube cold in the vegetable section. Perhaps 2 T would have been better if not using the real root. I could barely taste the ginger. However, it was delicious.
