At least 3 to 4 days a week, I start my morning with a green smoothie because it’s you can just throw so many fruit combinations together in the blender and your healthy breakfast is ready in less than a minute. More of my favorite morning breakfast smoothies are my Summer Mango Stone Fruit Smoothie, Kale Banana Chia Hemp Superfood Smoothie, and Superfood Peanut Butter Banana and Cacao Green Smoothie.

I  love this time of year when sweet juicy peaches and other stone fruits are in season. It’s the perfect time to make this delicious smoothie, because frozen peaches just aren’t the same. For this protein packed liquid breakfast, I combined the peaches (skin and all) with a frozen ripe banana, some hemp seeds for extra protein, almond milk and baby spinach (you can’t taste it, I promise!) My toddler loves green smoothies and always reminds me to buy spinach when I’m out (cracks me up!).

I often get asked about my blender, and I can’t say enough good things about my Blendtec Total Blender. I never really knew what I was missing until I owned it, and now I’m not sure I could ever live without it. It’s so powerful, perfect for whipping up smoothies and so much more. If you don’t have one, no worries, I used to use my magic bullet and it worked just fine.

And just one note about counting points in smoothies, as per Weight Watchers the official answer is yes, you should count the fruit when you calculate the recipe in recipe builder when making smoothies. That being said, I’ve been told many WW leaders don’t. One WW leader mentioned on my Facebook page: “you should let your weight loss be your guide. If you’re doing smoothies within reason, I wouldn’t count the points”. So it’s really up to you, if you don’t count the fruit, this smoothie is 3 points plus.

  1. I love my Blendtech blender, I ‘ve had mine for years. I use it all the time 😀

  2. Can you use a fresh banana?

  3. Thanks, your article has so much information, it is helpful for a reader as like me.you try to teach your reader how to make healthy banana green smoothies recipes it’s really helpful. I will try to make banana green smoothies following your instruction and Ingredients.

  4. I omitted the hemp seeds and also added 4 oz avocado. Mmmm

  6. So yummy! I didn’t even have to add any sweetener as my bananas were already ripe when put them in the freezer. Great recipe 🙂

  7. Thanks Gina. I have nectarines and will trying this recipe out soon. It looks fantastic.

    Thank you for your inspiration. It is a great help in the process of getting to a healthier me.

    Each day I make a promise to myself to make better choices. I appreciate your delicious and healthified recipes.

  8. If you like smoothies check out my blog, I got hundreds! http://smoothielifeblog.blogspot.com/

  9. I used to dislike green smoothies because though I know they are healthy, they usually taste awful. Then I realized that having the best blender can really make a difference too! Just like you, I've got a Blendtec and what you get just can't be compared with the results you get with the cheaper blenders.

    I've begun experimenting green smoothie recipes that include refreshing fruits such as yours. I tried your recipe today but instead of hemp seeds, I used cashew nuts. I just love it and it's made it to my favorite smoothie recipes 🙂

    • I thought it was very bland as is. Ended up adding a spoonful of almond butter, honey, extra peaches and some pineapple, then it was good.

  10. Smoothies have proven to be a great way to lose weight. A perfectly blended smoothie makes a perfect vehicle for a low-calorie, nutritious and filling recipe, capable of helping you manage your weight effectively. The great thing about smoothies is that they are filling and if you select low fat low calorie options they can be great to fill you up without putting on the pounds.

  11. When I'm making smoothies for weight loss I like to have the base out of bananas/blueberries but I sneak some spinach or something else less tasty in as well. That way you still get the nutrients but not the taste.

  12. per above post…I went back over recipes and found the carb count and the print friendly…Still love your site.

  13. I love your recipes but everytime I try to print one off I get about 50 pages of other stuff I don't want.Is there a simple way to print off ust the recipe I am interested in at the time and also do you have a carb count on your recipes? Thanks..love your site and recipes.

  14. Best green smoothie I've ever had.

  15. I love this recipe! We tried it once before and it was delicious but the next time we didn't have any frozen bananas so instead we used frozen pears. I thought it tasted even better! It was very fresh and the perfect way to start off my morning!

  16. Did you post the winners of the pin-it-to-win-it contest?

  17. The smoothie looks delicious! I tried to enter the contest, but it keeps popping up an error on my pinterest username and I don't know how to fix it. Bummed out.

  18. This smoothie was great! We used honey instead of a sweetener and it turned out wonderfully

  19. Can you use flax seeds in place of hemp seeds?

  20. you can use coconut water instead of almond milk–it's 1 point per 8 oz.

  21. I have a blendtec and I have to say it is the best purchase I have ever made. I have used it 224 times since I got it

  22. Delicious-looking smoothie!

  23. This looks super delicious! I have to find a place to buy hemp seeds…

  24. This sounds delicious. I just bought some Almond Milk now I just need the peaches and spinach. I have kale on hand.

  25. Thanks for posting this. I have been back and forth on blenders for the past couple of months. I was thinking about the Vitamix, the Ninja, etc. After reading this post, I hopped over to QVC.com to price the Vitamix. Turns out the latest Blendtec blender is the Today's Special Value at $399, free shipping, and 5 easy payments. It was meant to be! My blender is on the way. I will be trying many of your smoothies once it arrives.

  26. Cannot use Almond Milk due to a tree nut allergy, any other suggestions that would taste as good without changing point values?

  27. I don't understand the "count the fruit in smoothies/don't count the fruit in smoothies" concept? I am following WW. Can someone explain it to me?

    • Fruit is zero PointsPlus with the WW system. However, once you put the fruit or veggies into a recipe, it can change the way your body metabolizes the fruit and is no longer considered zero. For instance, anytime you cook it, it is then counted. For smoothies, WW wants you to let your weight loss be your guide. Some people count them, some don't. If you are not counting them and are still losing weight, then stick with it. If you stop losing, you might need to start counting them. You should speak to your leader to determine the reason you are not losing. If you are eating tons of fruit, then it's going to inhibit your weight loss. I personally eat tons of fruits and veggies so I start counting them after a certain point. Gina uses the WW Recipe Builder for her recipes. The Recipe Builder does count fruit and veggies because it goes off the total nutritional values of the entire recipe. If you want to log it in your tracker without counting fruits or veggies, use the "add a meal" option instead. That will count them as Zero PointsPlus.

    • What do you mean, "once you cook it, it is then counted"? I cook veggies and they're not counted? I am doing online so I don't have a leader to ask. Thanks for your help.

  28. Looks amazing! Can you use Kale instead of spinach??

  29. Looks so good! I can't wait for melons to be in full season to throw into my smoothies. Thank you for addressing the WW points issue with smoothies. I could never find an answer for p+.

  30. I'm allergic to bananas, but all the awesome looking smoothies have them as a base. What could I substitute?

  31. Just made this and LOVED it! So delicious and easy! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

  32. Last week, I finally tried your skinny green monster drink and it's amazing! I've been adapting it all week and I can't wait to try this one with local peaches in a couple of weeks. I haven't been able to find the hemp seeds, but I will substitute flax. We also tried your triple berry chia pudding – amazing!

  33. Thank you Gina for the green smoothie recipes. As someone who is new to WW (doing online), would you recommend counting all the points?. I only have 26/day and 7 pts seems high for a green smoothie. I believe u have had success w/ WW before, and would like your opinion on what to do?

    • I'm not Gina but a long-time successful WW member. The current WW rule is to let your weight loss be your guide. You could start but not counting the fruit and if you see you are not losing, start counting it. However, if you cook fruit, you need to count the points. It changes the structure of the fruit. I think this really depends on how much fruit and veggies you eat. Personally, I eat a lot of fruits and veggies so I start counting them after so many servings. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to lose/maintain.

  34. Instead of hemp seeds would chia seeds work as well? Thank You. Can't wait to try out this recipe, sounds delicious.

  35. this looks delicious! I have a ton of green smoothie recipes on my blog too 🙂

  36. This smoothie looks delicious, I'll have to try it out for myself! Good thing I have a whole bag of baby spinach sitting in my fridge right now.

  37. We are still a good month from peaches here…

    sigh…

  38. Looks SO good! On the pin-it-to-win-it contest, do you have more chances to win the more you pin?

    Love your site & there isn't a week that goes by that your recipes didn't make it onto my weekly menu planning 🙂

  39. I was thinking about making this for my daughter…can I just leave the hemp seeds out or should I substitute something for them?

  40. I make this same smoothie, only I use a handful of cashews instead of the hemp seeds. 🙂

  41. Do you skin the peaches? Looks yummy!! I have begun experimenting with smoothies and love them but my regular old blender is only okay for smoothie making so your giveaway is a bonus!
