Summer is coming to an end! That means no more yummy stone fruits as the temperature starts to drop. And after all the labor day eating, BBQ-ing, and more eating, I was really looking for something light and refreshing to start my day today.

Luckily, I had a couple peaches left over from the farmer’s market (probably my last for the year!) so I thought I’d use them up in a smoothie.

It’s a great way to use up remaining fruit, is super healthy, and takes only 5 minutes (or less) to make. Plus, for anyone who doesn’t like the texture of stone fruits (ahem, my husband), it’s a great way to add these yummy delights into their diet.

This recipe makes 2 generous servings, or 4 snack-sized servings, so find someone to share it with! I like making it as an afternoon treat for my kids — because it feels like a sweet “milkshake” without any added sugar!

What’s in a peach banana smoothie?

  • 2 peaches (you can also use frozen peaches when summer is over)
  • 1 banana
  • 6-8 frozen mango chunks
  • 2 heaping spoonfuls of plain, lowfat organic Greek yogurt (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/8 cup freshly squeezed (or regular all-natural) orange juice
  • Water or unsweetened coconut water (as much as you like to get the consistency you want!)

  • Reduce blood sugar levels.

Are smoothies good for you?

Smoothies are a great way of getting vitamins and minerals into your diet, especially for Picky Eaters! But if you order a smoothie at a restaurant, it’s likely packed with added fruit juices and syrups to make it sweeter. Fruit juices and syrups like agave, honey or maple syrup are all just different forms of added sugar and are not needed in a smoothie – since fresh fruit is already sweet!

My peach banana smoothie is a great afternoon pick me up, with all natural ingredients and no added sugar. The Greek yogurt also gives a protein boost.

It’s great as a mid-day snack, as a kid-friendly treat, as a replacement for juice, or even as a quick breakfast.

Top tips to make this Peach Banana Smoothie

  • Use the freshest ingredients and preferably organic. If you can’t find fresh peaches, use frozen ones – they will taste just as good!
  • Use fresh orange juice with no added sugar.
  • Use a high quality blender. For this smoothie I used our Ninja, but for larger quantities I recommend the Vitamix which gives you the smoothest, milkshake like consistency!
  • Use an unsweetened Greek yogurt.
  • To make this smoothie vegan, swap the Greek yogurt for a dairy free variety (but make sure the dairy free yogurt you use doesn’t have any added processed ingredients like carrageenan). You can also just omit the yogurt to make it dairy free or vegan.
  • Serve immediately – it will separate after it’s been sitting for a while! If it does separate, just stir it up before serving.
  • For some extra greens, add 1-2 cups fresh baby spinach into this smoothie. You won’t be able to taste it at all but you will be able to sneak some veggies into your family’s diet!
