Blueberry Peach Smoothie
This blueberry peach smoothie is packed with nutritious ingredients like Greek yogurt, spinach, chia seeds, and mint. It’s summery, refreshing, and naturally sweetened with fruit! Recipe can be made with fresh OR frozen blueberries and peaches. Vegan option available.
This blueberry and peach smoothie came together on a whim, whilst I was clearing out the fridge before a weekend away. My husband and I both loved it so much, I knew it had to go up on the blog!
It’s one of those refreshing smoothies that truly celebrates the best of summer fruits and flavours. Dietitian-designed, I’ve made sure that this healthy smoothie packs in fiber, protein, and healthy fats for a deliciously balanced breakfast or snack. I hope you enjoy it 🙂

About the ingredients & possible substitutions
- Blueberries: Feel free to use fresh or frozen blueberries. You can use either wild blueberries (the smaller ones) or cultivated blueberries (the ones you typically see in stores).
- Peaches: Please use peaches that are nicely ripe, or else this smoothie will lack sweetness and flavour. You are also free to use nectarines (equally as delicious!) Again, you can use either fresh or frozen options – if using frozen fruit, you won’t need to add any ice to cool this smoothie down.
- Spinach: Baby spinach adds a lovely serving of greens to this smoothie, without any “green flavour” – I promise you don’t even taste it! While you can swap spinach with something like baby kale, I would caution that the flavour will be more overpowering – do at your own risk 😉
- Greek yogurt: I used plain Greek yogurt to add protein and creaminess to this smoothie recipe. While I enjoy a plain option, this recipe would work with a vanilla Greek yogurt as well. For a vegan option, you are welcome to swap the yogurt with your favourite dairy-free alternative.
- Almond milk: Feel free to use any milk you’d like here! I usually opt for an unsweetened one and get my sweetness from the naturally-occurring sugars in fruits.
- Chia seeds: These little seeds swell up in liquid to make a gel-like consistency, which really helps to add to the texture of this smoothie (while also providing plenty of nutrition). You are welcome to swap with flax seeds, which also has a thickening effect.
- Fresh mint: A handful of fresh mint leaves helps to make this smoothie extra refreshing!!
- Vanilla extract: Used for extra flavour, vanilla pairs deliciously with blueberries and peaches.
Optional: while Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein, you are welcome to add an additional boost through your favourite protein power. An unflavoured or vanilla flavoured option would work best here!

My go-to smoothie blender
I use this Vitamix almost every day. I bought it about 7 years ago and it still functions perfectly. It makes a super smooth and creamy smoothie in seconds (not to mention many other meals, like soups)!
