Summer is here! That means yummy stone fruits, fresh berries, outdoor picnics and of course – smoothies in the morning for a refreshing start to the day!

I had a couple peaches left over from the farmer’s market this week, 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. This smoothie is naturally sweet, which makes it perfect for kids and an easy breakfast for the whole family!

Tools and Equipment You’ll Need

A tasty smoothie shouldn’t take more than five minutes to make, and this recipe is no exception! All you need is an excellent blender. My favorite blender options include:

What Makes This Banana Peach Smoothie Healthy?

  • No added sugar: This smoothie tastes like a sweet milkshake but it has no sugar added! All of the sweetness comes directly from the fresh fruit, so you can enjoy this breakfast totally guilt free
  • Vitamins and Minerals: Bananas are rich in B vitamins and Potassium, Peaches and mangoes both contain a high amount of Vitamins A and C, and all 3 fruits are high in fiber!
  • Heart Healthy: Peaches are a heart-healthy fruit – studies have shown that they may have the ability to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Will Kids Enjoy this Banana Peach Smoothie?

Bananas, peaches and mangoes all tend to be kid-friendly fruits. They’re sweet and have a nice smooth texture when blended into this smoothie. This is an easy recipe for all kids to enjoy!

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.

How Long Can Smoothies Last in the Refrigerator?

This recipe should keep well in the fridge for up to 24 hours. It will separate once refrigerated, but you just have to stir it up with a spoon before serving if you do decide to refrigerate it before drinking it.

Do You Need Ice When Making A Smoothie?

My secret to smoothie making involves using frozen fruit instead of ice! Using frozen fruit has multiple benefits: 1) You can keep a bunch of it on hand in your freezer so you always have smoothie ingredients ready to use 2) You’ll get that nice, thick, creamy texture without having to water down the flavor by using ice.

Top tips to make this Banana Peach Smoothie

  • 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 increase the protein, just increase the amount of plain Greek yogurt you use in this smoothie!
  • 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!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing as I have been looking for the perfect smoothie recipe. This one looks delicious and I am pinning it and printing up the recipe for myself 🙂 Thank you!

  2. I love my smoothies and my favourite part of summer of peach season. It’s not here yet, but I can’t wait. This year I plan to freeze a ton of peaches – that way I can enjoy this smoothie and other delicious treats for a long time 🙂

    • Freezing peaches when they are in season is a great idea!! I usually buy frozen peaches in the winter for the same reason – but this year I’m going to freeze my own 🙂 Thanks for the idea and I hope you love this recipe!

    • Hi Kim! You can definitely taste the banana in this smoothie. That’s not the only thing you’ll taste – but if you don’t like banana flavor at all in drinks, then you may not like this recipe 🙂 Hope that helps!

    • Aw thank you so much Gretchen – it’s so great to “meet” you! 🙂 Hope you and your kids loved this recipe as much as I did!!

  3. Looks like a tasty treat! I see that you’re using a magic bullet here. I have one of these as well, but when I try to make a smoothie the texture tends to be rather chunky. Do you have any tips for making it smoother with a bullet or do you just blend it for a long time?

  4. wow such a beautiful color…this is exactly what i need after a long weekend eating :-))…i will definitely give it a try…thanks for the recipe
