Cherry Peach Smoothie
has only 3 ingredients, fresh sweet cherries, peaches and protein powder along with filtered water and ice cubes which I didn’t count as ingredients.
Making smoothies using seasonal fruits is an economical way to use fruit when it starts to ripen a little too much. The fruits’ natural sweetness is usually enough to enjoy the smoothie without adding refined sugar.
A healthy drink anytime, you can make a smoothie for lunch, or in the afternoon or evening when you just feel like you need something sweet.
You can make your smoothies adding protein powder and or dairy, it’s really just a matter of preference. Adding coconut water in place of filtered water will add additional nutrients.
Most days for my lunch smoothie I add kale and/or spinach and fruits. Personal preference makes this your signature healthy drink that is low carb, low/no fat, sugar free – it’s a healthy snack.
I’m sharing a simple and basic cherry peach smoothie recipe which has only 3 ingredients not including the filtered water and ice. Feel free to add your choice of dairy or non-dairy product in place of the filtered water.
Wash the fresh fruit and cut into pieces that will accommodate your blender. I do not peal the peaches, but you can certainly peel your fruit if you prefer.
Taste your fresh fruit for sweetness and if they are not as sweet as you like you can always add a little honey, a half teaspoon at a time.

The measurements are approximate. You can always add more or less of an ingredient based on your preferences. I had only 2 peaches and a handful of cherries which is what I used. When adding water you can use as little or as much as you prefer.

- 2 peaches
- 1-2 tbls. protein powder
- 1/2 - 1 cup of filtered water OR coconut water
- 1 cup of ice cubes
- 1/2 tsp. honey (optional, as needed)
- Pit the cherries, slice the peaches and add them to blender with the protein powder and ½ cup of water and the ice.
- Blend until well mixed and taste. Add additional water or honey for sweetness based on your preference.
You can enjoy a fresh cherry peach smoothie any day of the year. If it’s the middle of winter you can always use frozen peaches and cherries.
When I know a storm heading our way I always check my freezer to see if I need fruit. That way I always have my favorite fruit available whenever I want to make a smoothie.
Smoothies are a great way to give the kids a delicious and healthy drink. Use their favorite fruits and they will surprise you when they ask you to make them their favorite smoothie. From experience, I noticed that they love the icy drinks that are colorful and taste good as well.
