This Peach Coconut Water Smoothie has been my summer time smoothie obsession ever since I first made it final week. I’m pretty positive I’ve made it as soon as a day since then.
This coconut water smoothie blends up frosty and lightweight, tremendous hydrating with a sweet and brilliant taste. This is the right hydration beverage for if you really feel a bit drained or just want one thing cool and refreshing and fruity to sip on.
Coconut Water Smoothie
I really like that it’s made with coconut water as a result of that adds electrolytes, natural sweetness and retains this smoothie super mild. Sometimes you simply don’t have the hunger for a richer, creamier, heavier smoothie — you need refreshing, but still fruit-packed! This is that smoothie!
But this Peach Coconut Water Smoothie has one essential rule that you simply easy can’t skip to make it one of the best ever…..
Sometimes a recipe simply sticks to me. I can’t get it out of my head and the flavors cling to me and call out day after day. Well, as a peach lover, this recipe completely did that for me!
I completely love how hydrating and refreshing this recipe is. But since it’s made utilizing actual fruit, it additionally provides a great deal of fiber. You can easily pack 2-3 servings of fruit into this smoothie.
The One Smoothie Rule You Cannot Break
So I did say there was a rule. And there’s. It’s about those peaches. The secret trick to creating this smoothie each super healthy and tremendous scrumptious is all concerning the peach skins! Yup, peach skins.
The secret to the deliciousness of this coconut water smoothie is: peach skins.
Pretty a lot all frozen peaches in shops remove the peach skins earlier than freezing. Like, what’s up with that anyhow? Why? If you already know anything about nutrition, you recognize that a lot of the nutrients and great things about fruit is within the skins. Berry skins, apple skins, peach and plum skins. I have even heard of people who add the banana peel to smoothies because it’s so healthy for you. Now I haven’t gone that far, but peach skins, yes.
But since this smoothie wants frozen fruit to blend up all frosty and lightweight, you must do one thing…
Freeze the peaches your self.
How to Freeze Your Own Fruit
Freezing your personal recent, in-season summer time fruit is definitely very easy and makes a huge difference when it comes to taste in your smoothies. When you freeze sweet, ripe, local fruit yourself, you capture all these flavors in your smoothie!
So all you do is wash, dry and slice up your recent and ripe peaches. No onerous or green-ish peaches allowed! You want candy and tender peaches that might be ready or even over-ready for eating.
Then you load your sliced peaches into a freezer bag or container and freeze. That’s it. You can do this the day earlier than you need to make this smoothie.
The skins of the peaches add these tiny little purple specks which might be simply pretty. And you’ll be able to really style the tartness from those skins!
Coconut Water Benefits
So now that you’ve your freshly-frozen, skin-on peaches, let’s speak coconut water. Because a coconut water smoothie starts with recent, yummy coconut water!
I first acquired into coconut water in 2007 while dwelling in NYC. I liked it! It was hydrating and candy, full of electrolytes. Fresh young coconut water was all the time higher than shelf secure. And the identical is true immediately.
I principally solely buy two brands of coconut water: Harmless Harvest and Taste Nirvana in the glass bottle.
Coconut water is wealthy in electrolytes like potassium, which makes it an incredible hydration beverage for understanding. It is naturally candy, which makes it good for coconut water smoothies like this one!
If for some cause you do not like coconut water or would not have any available you need to use this straightforward substitute..
Coconut Water Sub for this Recipe
Sub every cup of coconut water with 3/4 cup water and 2 Tbsp maple syrup.
Don’t Forget the Date!
I really like that’s coconut water smoothie recipe accommodates one medjool date too! That tiny little date is full of nutrients and fiber, natural sweetness and stickiness to offer your smoothie a bit more physique!
And for much more sweetness, I’ve added in maple syrup, which just makes this recipe so cravable. Maple and peach go rather well collectively.
Pinch of Salt too
I add in a pinch of salt – about 1/8 tsp or a bit much less. Why? Well it mimics sports activities drinks a bit more that will help you keep hydrated. Plus, that contrast of saltiness actually brings out all those sweet flavors. The salt is optionally available, but give it a attempt to see what you assume..
