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 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.
Here are a few great recipes that can help boost your fiber intake:
- Chocolate fiber smoothie cubes
- Chia seed smoothie
- Strawberry carrot smoothie
- Avocado banana smoothie
- Chocolate protein shake
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!
