This refreshing banana peach smoothie will be a new go-to flavor combination in your kitchen. It’s light and bright and perfectly sweet. Use frozen fruit so you can enjoy it all year around!
OK let’s get one thing straight: when it comes to smoothies I usually fall into one of two camps: team green or team berry/PB combination of some sort. But this banana peach smoothie is so refreshing, I absolutely must tell everyone about it.
Talk about a simple ingredients list too. Nothing fancy or hard to find here! See if you can spot the “special” ingredient in the photo below.
- frozen peaches for convenience and because they’re always ripe
- bananas (preferably frozen)
- oat milk
- honey, just a smidge
- plain full-fat Greek yogurt
- pinch of salt (yeah, I said it… and it makes all the difference!)
You know I love when you riff on my recipes. In fact I usually encourage it! But do yourself a favor and make this one as written, at least the first time. Everything from the texture to the temperature to the sweetness level is just spot on here.
Tropical vacation anyone?
How to Make the Best Smoothies
Smoothies are generally really forgiving but there are a few tried and true tips for making sure that you get only the best results every single time.
- Err on the side of less liquid to start knowing you can always add more. Once it’s too “liquid-y” it’s hard to go back.
- Yogurt: plain, full-fat. There are no less than one million yogurts on the market today but I recommend keeping it a blank canvas with plain. The Greek-style yogurts add thickness and creamy texture along with more protein too.
- Start by pulsing the blender a few times to get the hard frozen fruit pulverized. Then turn on medium to high for 1-2 minutes to get things nice and creamy.
- Don’t add ice. Just don’t. It quickly waters things down, so I recommend using frozen fruit instead. It will still be nice and cold and perfectly creamy!
- Add a pinch of salt! Clearly I’m a little salt obsessed but a tiny pinch does wonders for just about anything, smoothies included.
Can I sub a different milk?
Absolutely! Any milk or alt milk will work just fine here, but I love the creamy, almost nutty flavor of oat milk. If you use one that has more sugar, you might consider leaving out the honey.
Can I use fresh peaches?
You can, but when peaches are in peak season it would be a shame to blend them up (make this peach salsa instead). I tend not to add fresh seasonal fruit to smoothies because I don’t to want to “waste” it, if that makes sense. Frozen is perfect and works all year around. Plus it’s usually the more budget-friendly option. If you do use fresh, you may need to scale back on the liquid.
Is the honey necessary here?
Added sweetener is never totally necessary, but it can take a recipe from good to great! I find that this smoothie is perfectly sweet and the flavor of the honey pairs really well with the peaches. That being said, if you avoid added sugars then you can definitely just leave it out.
Mix up your morning routine with this banana peach smoothie and I promise you’ll be in love. Garnish with additional peach slices for a fun presentation. Best served ice cold in a tall glass.
