Milk and peaches are a match made in heaven! Creamy and sweet, homemade peach milk tastes much like peach smoothies, peach boba tea, and peach mood milk without all the extra ingredients. It’s simple, easy, and has a great creamy peach flavor.

This peach milk drink recipe is inspired by Korean fruit milk or Japanese style or recipes like Korean peach milk, strawberry milk, pineapple orange banana milk, Japanese mixed fruit milk, etc. But I decided to make it just a bit healthier by reducing the sugar slightly, and allowing for vegan friendly options!

And if you’re a milk and cookies kind of person, try these healthy chocolate chip cookies or peanut butter cookies with this recipe for peach milk.

🥘 Ingredients

You only need 4 ingredients for this peach drink! Find the full list of simple ingredients and detailed instructions for how to make peach milk in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Ingredients for easy peach milk recipe on a white background.
  • Sliced Peaches: Fresh ripe peaches work best for this copycat Korean peach drink recipe, but frozen or canned will work too. Make sure to remove the skin and seed from your fresh peaches.
  • Sugar: Any type of sugar works for this recipe – cane sugar, coconut sugar, brown sugar, even honey or maple syrup (although those will change the flavor of this drink slightly). Sugar gives this peaches and cream milk a sweeter flavor that makes it taste like a dessert instead of just a drink. Feel free to omit this if you don’t need as sweet of a flavor (since peaches are naturally sweet!) You can also replace this with a sugar substitute for a sugar-free drink.
  • Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract enhances the flavor of all of your ingredients and gives a slight warm vanilla flavor.
  • Milk: Milk is the base of this peach drink and makes it creamy and delicious! You can use whole milk, low fat milk, skim milk, or a plant based milk.

🔪 Instructions

Blend Peach Mixture: Add the sliced peaches, sugar and vanilla extract into a high speed food processor, blend until smooth.

💭 Expert Tips

  • Add sugar as needed: If you’re not sure how sweet you want this peach moon milk to be, start with half the amount of sugar called for in the recipe. You can always add more if needed!
  • For best results, use a high powered blender to get a super smooth and creamy peach smoothie milk!
  • Make sure your milk and your peach puree are nice and cold before blending them together so your drink stays cold and refreshing until it’s all gone.

📖 Variations

  • Different Flavors: Get creative with different fruit flavors. This peach moon milk recipe would taste great with a substitution of bananas, blueberries, or strawberries. Use any of your favorite fruits, but avoid citrus fruits because they don’t mix well with milk. Try spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or even pumpkin pie spice!
  • Lower Calorie Option: Use low-fat milk, fat free milk, or unsweetened almond milk to reduce the fat content and calorie count in this milk and fruit drink.
  • Make It Vegan: Making this peaches in milk recipe vegan is super simple. Just substitute your favorite plant milk. Almond, rice, oat, and soy milk would all work well for this recipe.
  • Use Different Sugars Or Make It Sugar Free: if you don’t want to use cane sugar, you can substitute any other sugar in this recipe. Note that this will likely result in a slight change in flavor, depending on the type of sugar you use. Start with a smaller amount and add more after you’re done blending if needed. To make this sugar free, use stevia or monk fruit instead of sugar. Because sugar substitutes are typically sweeter than cane sugar, start with a much smaller amount than the recipe calls for, and add more as needed.

  1. Can you also make this without simmering the blended peaches? I’m definitely eager to try this either way!5 stars

    • Hi Lumi! I suppose you could, but you wouldn’t get as rich of a flavor in the milk. Simmering the blended peaches helps to reduce them, make them less watery, and taste more sweet – so I would recommend simmering them if you are able to! Hope that helps!

  2. My daughter is a huge fan of fruit so I decided to make this with her. SHE LOVED IT! Sounds like I’m going to be going back to the store again today to buy more peaches. Thank you so much for a delicious recipe!5 stars

  3. Simple and delicious! Made it with super ripe peaches and the amount of sweetness was just perfect for me! Great recipe!5 stars

  4. Oh my, this sounds and looks absolutely delicious! I cannot wait to try this recipe. Such great detail on the recipe – thanks for another tasty recipe!5 stars
