Frozen Sliced Peaches- These already peeled peaches are sweet and delicious and blend perfectly.
Frozen Banana- Adds the ideal creaminess to smoothies! If you use a fresh banana, add in ½ cup of ice into the recipe. Tip: Frozen bananas tend to be more expensive than fresh, so I buy fresh and slice them up into sandwich bags and freeze.
Honey-Adds sweetness to the smoothie
Milk-You can use regular milk or plant based. A higher fat milk will create a richer texture. If you like rich smoothies and are doing plant based, choose an oat milk over almond milk.
Greek Yogurt- High in protein and adds creaminess to the recipe. An article from Eatthisnotthat.com discusses greek yogurt's health benefits. It's great to keep you full longer for weight loss, is good for your gut and more.
Substitutions and Variations:
Looking for more protein? Try adding in one tablespoon of almond butter or a serving of whey or hemp protein powder.
Want to add more healthy ingredients? Try some chia seeds for additional fiber or a sprinkle of cinnamon for flavor. Cinnamon is also known to be beneficial to lower blood sugar.
Any kind of milk can be used in this recipe. I enjoy oat milk for a creamier textured smoothie, similar to what whole milk would produce.
If you are dairy free, try using a dairy free version of yogurt. I recommend plain or vanilla.

Here are the Step by Step Instructions for these Banana Peach Smoothies.
Step 1: Add Ingredients into the Blender
Add the peaches, banana, greek yogurt, honey and milk into the blender.
Step 2: Blend
Blend on high for a minute until ingredients are completely combined. Open lid and push ingredients off the sides of blender. Pulse a few times.
That's it..so easy! Enjoy!
Always scrape down the sides of the blender in between processing to avoid any large chunks being poured into your smoothie.
I highly suggest using frozen fruit for this recipe. Ice tends to water down the smoothie, but frozen fruit offers the best frozen texture & keeps it very flavorful. Plus, you don't have to worry as much about not having a perfectly ripe piece of fruit.
Yes, smoothies are healthy and a great substitute for eating a heavy breakfast. Using milk and greek yogurt makes a smoothie higher in protein and will keep you full longer.
Bananas goes perfectly with peaches in a smoothie! If you are looking for a little extra kick, try adding in a ½ cup of frozen pineapple.
It does not, but I would add in an extra ½ cup of ice if it is a fresh banana. I like to use frozen so it is extra cold.
Yes, that is why I prefer frozen. Plus, you don't have to worry about the peaches being in season then.
Cleaning the Blender:
I'm not going to lie, sometimes I avoid smoothies because I hate cleaning the blender. This guy has an easy hack to cleaning it. Add water and soap & blend.
