This smoothie is so incredibly creamy that you’ll want to savor it with a spoon! And here’s a little secret – this particular recipe caused quite a stir in my family. Keep reading to find out why!

The Perfect Smoothie for Your Fat Loss Goals

If you’re aiming for fat loss, this Peach Pineapple Smoothie is a great choice. It’s a super creamy and delicious dessert that only packs under 100 calories per serving.

I’ve created this healthy shake to have a light and airy texture that almost resembles a fluffy mousse. You might even forget it’s a smoothie and find yourself reaching for a spoon!

The Dos and Don’ts of Doubling the Recipe

One word of caution – I don’t recommend doubling this Peach and Pineapple Smoothie recipe. Doubling the ingredients can make it difficult to achieve a perfectly smooth texture. Give the pineapples and peaches enough space to break down effectively by sticking to the original measurements.

Even when I tried doubling the recipe, my processor ended up filled to the brim with this delightful peachy, pineapple-y smoothie. So remember, keeping the recipe as is means you get the same volume of deliciousness with half the calories. Great news for those of us who love to savor big portions!

Ingredients for the Ultimate Pineapple Peach Smoothie

To make this Pineapple Peach Smoothie without yogurt, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • ½ cup chopped frozen peaches
  • ½ cup chopped frozen pineapple (very ripe)
  • ¾ cup milk (I used 2% milk)
  • ½ teaspoon orange zest

If you don’t have frozen fruit on hand, you can use fresh or canned fruit (in juice or water, not syrup) that has been drained. Just make sure to freeze the fruit before blending it into this low-calorie smoothie. Check out the directions for freezing peaches in the recipe below.

As for a little twist, I added a touch of orange zest to the frozen peaches and pineapples. Orange zest provides a stronger orange flavor compared to orange juice. When I tasted the blended smoothie, it was absolutely perfect. However, my family had mixed opinions. Some thought the orange zest made the smoothie bitter, while I loved the additional flavor. If you’re not a fan of bitter flavors, feel free to skip the zest. But if you’re feeling adventurous, give it a try and let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Expert Tips for the Perfect Peach Pineapple Smoothie

When it comes to blending smoothies, I prefer using a large food processor instead of a regular blender. Food processors tend to create a smoother texture. However, if you have a high-speed blender like a Vitamix or NutriBullet, that should work well too.

The Benefits of a Pineapple Peach Smoothie

Wondering why you should give this Peach Pineapple Smoothie a whirl? Here are some fantastic reasons to do so:

  • Low Calorie Smoothie: Both peaches and pineapples are naturally low in calories, making this an ideal choice for those watching their weight.
  • No Added Sugar: The natural sweetness from the fruits and milk in this recipe eliminates the need for additional sweeteners like honey or maple syrup. Enjoy the natural sugars found in the fruits themselves.
  • Budget-Friendly: With frozen fruit and milk as the main ingredients, this smoothie won’t break the bank. You don’t have to wait for peak season to enjoy a tasty and wholesome blend.
  • Quick and Easy: This smoothie requires just 3 to 4 ingredients and takes only 5 minutes of your time. It’s a simple recipe that doesn’t require a special trip to the health food store.
  • Versatile Snack: Whether it’s for breakfast, a post-workout refuel, or an after-school treat for the kids, this smoothie is perfect any time of day.
  • Dietary Friendly: Our Peach Pineapple Smoothie is gluten-free and vegetarian. Check out the FAQs section below for tips on making it vegan.
  • Nutritious: Packed with vitamin C, potassium, calcium, riboflavin, and other essential nutrients, this smoothie is a healthy choice. Using whole fruits instead of fruit juice boosts the fiber content.
  • Delicious: If you’re searching for a super creamy smoothie that will satisfy both adults and kids, this recipe is a winner. It’s a tasty way to incorporate more fruit into your diet.

How to Make the Perfect Peach Pineapple Smoothie

Ready to blend up a storm? Here’s a step-by-step guide to making this delightful smoothie:

  1. Chop the frozen fruits into small pieces, if needed, for easier blending.
  2. In a food processor, combine the pineapple, peach, orange zest, and milk. Blend until completely smooth. If the ingredients stick to the sides, pause the processor and scrape them down with a rubber spatula. Be aware that dairy milk tends to cause the smoothie to expand, so choose a large 10-cup processor.
  3. Taste the smoothie and add sweetener if desired. I typically rely on very ripe fruits and find additional sweeteners unnecessary. Just remember, adding sweetener will alter the nutritional information provided below.
  4. Pour the smoothie into tall glasses or wide-mouth pint mason jars and serve immediately. You may even need a spoon to enjoy every last drop!

Storing Your Smoothies

Don’t let any leftover smoothie go to waste! Transform it into refreshing ice pops by pouring the mixture into silicone popsicle molds and freezing overnight. If you used dairy milk, you’ll have a wonderfully creamy textured treat.

Exploring Fruit Combinations with Peaches

While peaches and pineapples make for an incredible duo, there are plenty of other fruits you can experiment with. Here are some fruits that pair well with peaches in smoothies:

  • Strawberry
  • Mango
  • Banana
  • Pear sauce
  • Applesauce
  • Blueberry

Feel free to get creative by adding some greens like kale, spinach, or a touch of mint. Consider using different liquids too, such as kefir or cranberry juice. And if you’re looking to boost the protein content or add a hint of vanilla flavor, protein powder and vanilla extract are excellent options.

Expert Tips for Your Fat Loss Journey
