Healthy banana peach smoothie recipe

Healthy Banana Peach Smoothie

POSTED ON 4.5.2021

This healthy peach banana smoothie is low in sugar, high in fiber and packed with flavor.

Blend this Banana Peach Smoothie during the height of peach season for the tastiest peach smoothie you’ll ever taste! 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, savoring every sweet bite. This is also 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). But 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.

Ingredients for a vegan green smoothie with peach and banana

Low sugar smoothie (but not when it comes to flavor)

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.

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 peach 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 protein powder, chia or hemp seeds, or 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 for the banana or use another banana replacement.

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.

  2. Alan Mueller says:

    pretty good but would add more peaches and replace banana with avocado

  3. Alannah says:

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

  4. Betty says:

    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.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

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

  5. Amanda Hawkins says:

    This tastes good.

  6. Judy Thigpenn says:

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

  7. Shirley says:

    I loved this one, the peach banana combo really satisfied my sweet tooth.

  8. Janice says:

    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!

  9. Jessica says:

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

  10. V J says:

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

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

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

  11. Renee Shafer says:

    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.

  12. Jen says:

    I love this smoothie!! It’s a great one to start off with!

  13. Erin Burd says:

    Love, love, loved this. I added Almond Milk. It felt fresh.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

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

  14. Janice Sommers says:

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

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

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

  15. Karen says:

    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!

  16. Sharon says:

    First green smoothie with these simple ingredients. And I have to say, I like it. LOL Ready to try the next one.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Way to blend it Sharon! You’re a rawkstar now!

  17. Heather says:

    I think I will try this with fresh peaches when they are in season. Wasn’t bad, but not my most favorite as I couldn’t taste the peaches.

    • Luis Mejia says:

      Couldn’t taste the peaches I just tasted the peanut butter that I put in..

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Peanut butter is def a way to grab some more protein, Luis. Yet it will totally take over a peach any time! 😉

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Def give it another blend with those fresh peaches and tell us what ya think, Heather. 🙂

  18. Michelle says:

    Thought this was a very good start to the smoothie challenge. Very refreshing blend! I enjoyed it.

  19. Cori Dennhardt says:

    This was really good! You would never guess it was low calorie. I made it a meal replacement and it kept my satisfied all morning!

  20. Toni says:

    Yum – very refreshing

  21. LaCell says:

    This was a delicious smoothie. Mu while family enjoyed it. It went from Uuhh! I’ll try it to this is great.

  22. Dora Suarez says:

    Simply refreshing, I used frozen peaches and frozen banana chunks (I freeze my bananas peeled when they start to over ripen) but may have added a little extra water as it didn’t come out as thick as others. Regardless it was delicious and a great lunch on the go.

  23. Hope says:

    I didn’t love the taste of this one – it was kinda bland. It tasted too much like banana and not peach. My banana was pretty ripe, so that could’ve helped to mask the taste of the peaches. However, it was refreshing and light, which I enjoyed. I had it in the evening and found myself full; the consistency/thickness was great.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      So glad you gave this a try, Hope! Next time, you can def add more peach or even try fresh peaches for a stronger flavor.

  24. Kim Hoffman says:

    Day 1 of challenge! Off to a good start. The peach smoothie was delicious and satisfying, Kept me going all morning. I was surprised with how thick the consistency was. I did add my favorite protein powder.

  25. maria thomas says:

    This is a simple yet delicious smoothie! I never really use peaches in my smoothie. Thanks to this challenge, I have a new fave!

  26. Linda says:

    I am new to the smoothie world. My daughters have been making smoothies for a long time, so I know they can taste delicious. I made todays smoothie following the recipe, but it tasted too green for me. Maybe more banana or peaches would have tasted better to me. I am looking forward to tomorrow’s recipe. I love cherries!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Love that you’re here with us Linda! Def feel free to back off the spinach a touch if needed as you get used to having it smoothies. Can’t wait to hear what you think of tomorrow’s Mixed Berry smoothie!

  27. Holly says:

    I liked this smoothie! A great way to start the challenge. It was tart & refreshing. I added some extra frozen banana because I needed a little extra sweetness today 😉

  28. Toni Holle says:

    Loved the smoothie. Used frozen peaches, found it very refreshing.

  29. Rachelle McCann says:

    I liked this smoothie, but I think I needed riper peaches. I have a bag of frozen, and they weren’t very sweet, but I still enjoyed the smoothie.

  30. Eunice says:

    I love peach desserts but not so crazy about it in a smoothie.

  31. Ruby says:

    I subbed kale. Quite refreshing, but maybe my frozen peaches were overpowered

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Kale can be a bit stronger than spinach in a smoothie. Def let us know what you think next time if you blend it with spinach! 🙂

  32. Clareen McNabb says:

    Great smoothie!! I used a whole banana & coconut water then added chia & ground flax for extra benefits

  33. Jen says:

    This smoothie hit the spot tasting absolutely wonderful and the kids just kept asking for more too! A great way to use up some of the peaches we froze from our tree last year. We will definitely be using this smoothie combo again! I added ground flax without any complaints from the kids as well.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Love that you’re blending as a family! Such a great way to get diff fruits + veggies into our kids. You go mama!

  34. Lynnette Muncey says:

    First day of my smoothie challenge and couldn’t have started with a better one! This one satisfied my mid-day sweet tooth without any of the guilt! Keeping this recipe for future use!

  35. Jen says:

    I really enjoyed this smoothy!! I added a scoop of protein to it to make it my meal and it kept me full for a long time!!

  36. Alicia R. says:

    Yum! Another great smoothie recipe. Will need to remember this one when peaches are in season.

  37. Tracy Liller says:

    I like the refreshing taste with the peaches; will be trying with avocado

  38. Rhea Hayes says:

    Yum! Sweet enough to be a dessert.

  39. Ogechi Nwaokelemeh says:

    Very easy and tasty smoothie! Great way to start the day! Day 1 Smoothie…DONE! 🙂

  40. Sharon Key says:

    This is PERFECT green smoothie for beginners to do! I have been doing green smoothies for about a year now and I personally found it to be a bit to sweet for me. That being said, I still loved it! I also added extra things like chia see, flax seed, and hemp hearts .

  41. Michele says:

    This smoothie was very easy to make and was refreshing and light. I used frozen peaches and a frozen banana. It is a pretty green color from the spinach, but I could only taste the fruit. I’m looking forward to trying this again, adding some chia sees, nut butter, yogurt or protein powder.
