Ginger Peach Green Tea Smoothie

Start your day off right with this healthy Ginger Peach Green Tea Smoothie!

This quick and refreshing Ginger Peach Green Tea Smoothie is packed with healthy antioxidants plus it has a subtle kick from freshly grated ginger.

My husband used to travel quite a bit for his old job, and his trips to Asia hooked him on a cultural staple: green tea. So naturally he tried to get me on board, too. Now I’m a tea drinker, so you wouldn’t think this would be a hard sell. But the authentic green tea he brought back from his travels just didn’t do it for me. I tried, I really did. But I just didn’t care for straight up green tea. So I started looking for substitutes, and my “house tea” was born: Ginger Peach Green Tea from The Republic of Tea. Just adding that bit of peach flavor and zip of ginger made it the perfect green tea for me. But who would have thought it would also make a tasty addition to my daily smoothie?

I’m pretty sure I’m late to the party on this whole tea-in-smoothies thing, but better late than never, right? This Ginger Peach Green Tea Smoothie has juicy peaches, protein-rich vanilla greek yogurt, a bite of fresh ginger, half a banana for sweetness and some brewed and cooled Ginger Peach Green Tea. That’s it, folks. The rest is just blender magic. I love it as a super refreshing pick-me-up to tide me through the mid-afternoon munchies. 

Let’s be real; I know many of you are far more adventurous than me when it comes to making smoothies, so serve ‘em up! What is the most inventive ingredient that you put in your smoothies? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

    I’m drinking a The Republic of Tea, hot tea this very moment. Ginger peach is my favorite, but I switched it up today with a pomegranate. What a brilliant idea to use it in a smoothie!

    I currently live in China and I still can’t get used to green tea. To think- the Chinese just leave tea leaves in their little portable mugs…I do love me some jasmine tea though. I bet there would be a place for that in this smoothie combo!

      Jasmine tea sounds like it would be a total winner, too. Great idea, Christine!

      Approx 200 calories depending on your yogurt. 55 for the banana 60 for the peaches and I get 85 for the yogurt. 0 for everything else.

    Hi, Anna
    It really looks good & I love how easy it is! I love banana & almond milk in my smoothie. Honestly, I’ve no experience with green tea in my smoothie, but your idea is seems perfect. I will try this asap.
    Thanks for putting it together.
