Blend this Banana Peach Smoothie during the height of peach season for the tastiest peach smoothie you’ll ever savor. You can also use frozen peaches, which have been picked at their peak and frozen to lock in the nutrients.

Peaches are a true gift. There’s nothing quite like finding a perfectly ripe peach, then taking it over to the kitchen sink to devour it, juice dripping down your chin, relishing every sweet bite. This is also exactly why I love blending with peaches.

When is the Best Season to Use Peaches in a Smoothie?

Of course, using peaches during the height of peach season is ideal (late spring, early summer). Yet this banana peach smoothie can easily be made with frozen peaches. Slice up + freeze a bunch of peaches during harvest time, then enjoy a little bit of summer all year long.

Low Sugar Recipe

Peaches and bananas are both low on the glycemic scale. This makes them a good choice for anyone watching their blood sugar. (Always check first with your health professional if you are a diabetic!) Both fruits also contain dietary fiber. Fiber can slow down the absorption of fruit sugar into your blood stream, then give you a more steady energy boost.

I start sounding like a commercial going on and on about fiber, but is it SO important for your health – both for heart health and staying “regular.”

Gut health is important, so eat and drink up all the fiber-rich fruit and veggies in this banana peach smoothie! They’re nature’s scrubbing brush.

More Fiber-ful recipes

Here are a few great recipes that can help boost your fiber intake:

A diet rich in fiber can lower the risk of Type II diabetes, heart disease and many types of cancer. So grab one of these fiber-filled smoothies and drink to your health!

Turn Your Smoothie into a Meal

Because this is a low-cal smoothie, it’s not a great meal replacement on its own. Upgrade this banana peach smoothie to a quick + easy meal by adding a scoop of homemade protein powder, chia or hemp seeds or homemade nut butter.

To stay full and feel satisfied for longer, check out our popular Green Smoothie Meal Replacement Guide.

For example, you can add 1/4 of an avocado, use 1/2 cup coconut milk for some of the water, add a tablespoon of MCT oil, or your fav healthy fat.

If you don’t like bananas or can’t eat them, feel free to substitute avocado or cauliflower for an equally creamy smoothie.

Quite often the simplest of smoothies are the best ones. This Banana Peach Smoothie is no exception. Use simple, healthy ingredients… your tastebuds and your body will thank you!

    Like the other recipes I’ve tried from this blog so far, there is no spinach taste, which is great for me! I used frozen peaches and a fresh but not super-ripe banana. I didn’t find this one to have a lot of flavor, but like the other recipes, this might be improved by using fresh and/or more ripe fruit.

    1. For sure! Let us know what you think when you blend again with fresh peaches and a ripe banana, Bonnie.

  2. I loved how simple this smoothie is, but still tastes great! Also, not as sweet as I thought it would be which I liked.

    This was a refreshing drink, but not as flavorful or dense as I would like. I didn’t have any bananas, so left that out & peaches aren’t in season yet, so used frozen. I’m sure a banana & fresh peaches would make a difference.

    1. Def give it another blend with some fresh peaches and banana. We think you’ll love it!

    It was a good refreshing smoothie but will use fresh peaches the next time I make this. Not much flavor.

    The peach took away the strong tang of the spinach. I have a strong sense of taste. Raw spinach is as green as I’ve been able to go when adding to smoothies. This is a great tasting smoothie!

    I really enjoyed this smoothie! Very simple and delicious! Will definitely be making this again!

    I loved the hint of peach taste I had. Might be even better with a fresh peach instead of frozen.

    1. Fresh peach or adding in another stone fruit like nectarine will def up that flavor for you VJ. Thanks for giving it a blend!

  8. 5 stars
    I was thoroughly surprised at how delicious this smoothie was. I added a scoop of protein to make it a complete meal. Will definitely be making this one again.

    1. Yay!! Almond milk def makes for a creamier smoothie. Way to swap in some additional protein that way too!

  9. I substituted mango for the peach. The smoothie was more bland than the usual smoothies I make.

    1. Def increase banana or add a bit more mango next time to up that yummy factor and let us know what you think!

    I love how simple this smoothie is but it didn’t have much flavor. I guess the frozen peaches don’t have as much flavor as fresh ones!
