Peach Protein Shake | Just 5 Simple Ingredients!

Give your taste buds a refreshing treat with my Healthy Peach Protein Shake! This post will show you how to level up your protein smoothie with some easy tricks and fruity flavors.

This peach protein shake will fool you into thinking it’s not actually healthy. It will have you thinking, is there even protein in here? That’s something I’ve learned in my journey at A Sweet Pea Chef. The best healthy recipes taste so good you get suspicious! But rest easy because this peach protein shake is positively good for you.

It’ll also become your best friend in the morning because it takes just 5 minutes to make…and keeps you full all the way till lunch. Sorry, Coffee, I mean second best friend in the morning. And if you’d rather have the shake for a post-workout protein replenishment (or even a meal replacement), these shakes will do the trick.

Are Protein Shakes Good For You?

A protein shake can be good for you depending on how you make it. Unless you’re loading it up with added sugars or processed stuff, protein shakes are healthy. In fact, adding them to your diet can reduce both hunger and cravings. According to a study people that doubled their protein intake saw significant decrease in both their calorie intake and body weight.

Can I Drink Protein Shakes On An Empty Stomach?

Yes! Drinking protein shakes on an empty stomach is no problem because they fill you up! It’s technically a low calorie meal, not something you have to take with a meal. That’s why my peach protein shake will get you ready for the day first thing in the morning. Or for your evening workout, whatever! Protein is linked to tissue repair and muscle growth, which is great and one of the MANY benefits of this protein shake!

What Happens To Your Body When You Drink Protein Shakes?

When you drink a protein shake, you get the tissue repair and muscle growth benefits I mentioned above. This added boost of protein (when balanced with other healthy habits) will ultimately increase your strength, build muscle and cut down on any excess body fat. Check out this study on how protein can help your muscles and strength gains in resistance training. If you’re looking to increase your muscle mass then a shake before or after your workout will help you achieve your fitness goals!

Do Protein Shakes Make You Gain Weight?

If you don’t pair your protein shakes with a reasonable amount of exercise or activity (even just walking!) there’s a chance that you will gain weight. As protein shakes also contain calories, drinking a high amount on top of your daily meals will add up. Here are 3 common mistakes that you might want to avoid when it comes to protein shakes:

  1. You’re eating too much protein (excess protein is stored as fat).
  2. You have your protein shake as the only protein source (this isn’t enough, you still need protein rich foods!).
  3. You’re drinking a whey protein concentrate (this is more processed).
Peach Protein Shake

What’s In This Peach Protein Shake?

First of all, this protein shake has PEACHES! The best thing about adding peaches – especially when they’re ripe and in season – is that you’ll get to enjoy a smoothie full of sweetness and flavor. Why are peaches one of the most flavorful fruits? I don’t know! But I do know they are packed with vitamin C (one medium peach has around 13.2% of the daily value) which your immune system will love.

This protein shake also contains…

1. Almond Milk:

You’ll always find almond milk in my protein smoothie recipes. Not only is it 50% lower in calories than cow’s milk, but it’s also (obviously) dairy-free.

2. Greek Yogurt

If you didn’t know this yet, greek yogurt is actually good for weight loss because it keeps you full and reduces your temptation to snack. I like my shakes quite creamy so adding this provides the perfect texture.

3. Vanilla Protein Powder

I like vanilla protein powder with this smoothie because it gives a note of peaches and cream. Typically a scoop of protein powder will add 15-30 grams of protein to your fruit shakes.

4. Frozen (or fresh) Peach Slices

Have you seen my post on How To Freeze Peaches? There’s a technique! This summer I’ll be doing a lot of peach freezing – so I can enjoy this protein shake all year round!
