Ingredients

The simple ingredients needed to make this peach banana smoothie include:

  • Peaches. It’s best if you use frozen peaches. You can buy already frozen fruit at the store. Or, you can freeze peaches when they’re in season.
  • Banana. Make sure you choose ripe bananas for the most natural sweetness. Unripe bananas tend to be a bit less sweet which means you’ll have to add in extra sweetener to compensate. It’s also better to use room temperature bananas so the ingredients can blend together more easily.
  • Milk. Regular, oat, soy, or another nut-based milk such as cashew or almond milk can all be used.
  • Yogurt. Choose a plain unsweetened yogurt. Regular, goat’s milk, Greek, or any nut or pant-based yogurt will work.
  • Sweetener. This is optional. Test the smoothie after making it, then add it in if you would like it sweeter. Peaches and bananas are normally pretty sweet so you may not need any additional sweetener.

How to Make Peach Banana Smoothie

These are the easy steps for making a healthy peach smoothie.

Combine Ingredients

The key to making the absolute most creamy smoothies is power.

You need a blender capable of completely blending up all of the ingredients until all the chunks are gone.

Here is a list of the best blenders for making fruit smoothies:

  • Nutribullet – Great for personal-sized smoothies. Use the large cup in order to fit all of the ingredients. Make sure to not go over the max fill line.
    • Ninja Blender is also another great option!
  • Vitamix – It’s like a traditional blender but WAY more powerful. You get a perfect silky smooth drink every time! It is a bit more expensive though, so only go this route if you make smoothies, soups, or sauces pretty often.
  • Food Processor – This is sort of a last resort, but it will work in a pinch if you don’t have a blender.

Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor. Be sure you have enough space for all the fruit along with the yogurt and milk.

For the best consistency and ease of blending, place the banana and yogurt closer to the blade and the frozen peaches further from the blade.

All the ingredients are placed in a high speed blender.

Blend it Up

Blend for 1-2 minutes. If the blades aren’t catching everything, you might need to add a little bit more milk.

Keep running the blender until you get the perfect smooth and creamy texture.

Garnish

Serve with diced peaches, additional lime zest, and a straw.

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep-Ahead: One of the best things about smoothies is that they can be prepared ahead of time! Simply measure the ingredients and store in a freezer-safe bag. These single-serving bags will last for up to 3 to 4 months in the freezer.
  • To Store: Smoothies are best enjoyed immediately.

Dietary Modifications

The recipe you’ll find below is already gluten-free and vegetarian as written.  Here are some adjustments and substitutions you can make to help it fit your other dietary requirements:

  • Paleo – Avoid refined sugar. Also, use a plant-based milk and yogurt.

FAQs

Should I peel a peach for a smoothie?

You don’t need to, and the peel tends to have a lot of fiber! However, peeling peaches will give you a creamier consistency.

What is the best liquid to add to a smoothie?

Thicker liquids such as milks are best, they will make it creamy. You can also use juices and even water in a pinch!

What fruit mixes well with peaches?

Any and all berries go wonderfully with peach flavor. Try pairing with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, even blackberries. Citrus, like limes and lemons, also go well.

What can I put in my smoothies to help loose weight?

Include ingredients that will keep you full. Look for items rich in fiber and protein. Nuts, seeds, and protein powder, are good options.

Are peach banana smoothies healthy?

This peach banana smoothie contains 163 calories, 36 grams carbohydrates, 2 grams fat, and 3 grams protein. Peaches and bananas have numerous nutrients and vitamins, as well as antioxidants. Both have high amounts of potassium and vitamin C. They’re also a great source of fiber, which is great for digestive health!

Expert Tips and Tricks

  • Both fresh and frozen. Using both options in your fruit makes it easier to blend together.
  • Go organic. This produce has more flavor, since it’s not so watered down. Plus, it’s healthier for you!
  • Check for ripeness. Unripe bananas will not be as naturally sweet, and you’ll end up needing to add a lot more sweetener.
  • Choose an unsweetened milk. This ensures you can adjust the sweetness to taste. Plus, it cuts down on sugar.
  • Taste it first. Peaches are naturally pretty sweet so you may or may not need any additional sweetener.

  1. Hi London Brazil, I made this smoothie. For the yogurt I added Alpro blueberry and cherry yogurt and Chia seeds to the smoothie as I’m half vegetarian/vegan and trying to involve more protein and need more of it. I’ve made so many smoothie over the years I’ve forgot on how many and what I’ve made altogether cause love making them. The recipe was heaven. Thankyou London.😁

    Substituted oat milk and didn’t have a lime available so I used about a half thumb-sized nub of ginger. Refreshing flavor!
