Easy & Creamy Peach Smoothie
This easy 4-ingredient peach smoothie tastes like an indulgent, sippable peach creamsicle! Made with fresh or frozen peaches, a frozen banana, yogurt, & your choice of milk.
Sweet, tangy peaches are one of my all-time favorite summer fruits. Frozen peaches, in particular, are the perfect base ingredient if you love a thick & creamy breakfast smoothie. Blended with a frozen banana & vanilla Greek yogurt, this peaches and cream smoothie honestly tastes like ice cream!
Should I use fresh or frozen peaches in a smoothie?
You can make smoothies with either fresh or frozen peaches, but I prefer frozen. If you want to make a fresh peach smoothie, you’ll need to peel the peaches first—which can be tricky & will take some time. Frozen peaches won’t require any prep work, they’re cheaper, and a frozen peach smoothie will turn out much thicker & creamier!
Healthy Peach Smoothie Ingredients
- Frozen Peaches. You can use fresh or frozen peaches in this recipe, although frozen peaches are the easiest option & will make your smoothie creamier. You could also substitute for the peaches and make a nectarine smoothie, or even a mango banana smoothie instead!
- Frozen Banana. This adds creaminess & natural sweetness, but the banana flavor is hardly noticeable. It gives this smoothie a thick & spoonable texture—so you could serve this as a breakfast smoothie bowl, too!
- Vanilla Greek Yogurt. A bit of sweetened vanilla Greek yogurt gives this smoothie such a comforting peaches-and-cream flavor! Of course, you can make your own peach yogurt smoothie with plain unsweetened yogurt if you’d prefer, or use a nondairy yogurt to keep it vegan.
- Milk of Choice. You’ll need a bit of liquid to get this smoothie to blend—you can use dairy or nondairy milk, or even plain water or fruit juice. (Apple, orange, or prune juice could all be tasty here!)
- Spinach. A spinach banana smoothie is one of my all-time favorites because you can’t even taste the greens in it. So feel free to add a handful of spinach here & turn this into a superfood peach spinach smoothie!
- Sweetener. If you want a sweeter breakfast smoothie, or if you’re using unsweetened yogurt, try adding 1-2 tsp of honey, maple syrup, or sugar. Start with less & sweeten to taste.
What fruits mix well with peaches?
There are all sorts of fruits you could add to this banana peach smoothie recipe if you want to customize it. Strawberry, blueberry, mango, pineapple, apricot, plum, oranges or orange juice, or coconut water could all pair well with the peaches in this smoothie—have fun with it!
How to Make a Peach Smoothie
- Freeze peaches if needed, or use store-bought frozen peaches like I did. (Check out my frozen watermelon smoothie for an easy tutorial on how to freeze fruit for smoothies!)
- Add your ingredients to a blender: frozen peaches, frozen banana, yogurt, & milk. (Plus optional sweetener or spinach, if desired.) If the texture is too thick, add another splash of liquid.
- Blend until smooth! Then serve in 2 glasses with straws for sipping.
Storage & Meal Prep
If you want to meal prep breakfast smoothies ahead of time, frozen fruit smoothies like this or my frozen blueberry smoothie are perfect options because they’re so easy to store. Just blend the smoothies up & store them in sealed freezer-safe jars in the fridge for up to 2 days (or freeze for longer storage). That’s it!
