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 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.

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!

  1. Sloane Grey says:

    I loved this one! I blended with almond milk instead of water, and it was very delicious and very peachy!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Swapping out water for almond milk is a great choice, Sloane. Makes the smoothie a little creamier + a little more protein. Rawk on!

  2. Janice says:

    Peach is good and I will try it again with a different type of peach in hopes of a more peach flavor. Since this is my new breakfast with the protein smoothie powder each morning.

  3. Lynne says:

    I’ve made this one on my own and I LOVE peaches but the flavor doesn’t seem to come through so not a big fan. I’d rather make a berry one or the orange one. I can’t wait to make the cinnamon one!!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      This is def all about trying diff recipes and flavors to find what you love. Way to blend new things, Lynne!

  4. Gloria says:

    Love this recipe, it was a great way to use my frozen peaches.

  5. Bonnie Clyne says:

    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.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

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

  6. Alan Mueller says:

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. Amanda Hawkins says:

    This tastes good.

  10. Judy Thigpenn says:

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

  11. Shirley says:

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

  12. 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!

  13. Jessica says:

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

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. Jen says:

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

  17. 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!

  18. 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!

  19. 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!

  20. 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!

  21. 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. 🙂

  22. Michelle says:

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

  23. 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!

  24. Toni says:

    Yum – very refreshing

  25. LaCell says:

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

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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!

  30. 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!

  31. 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 😉

  32. Toni Holle says:

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

  33. 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.

  34. Eunice says:

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

  35. 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! 🙂

  36. Clareen McNabb says:

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

  37. 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!

  38. 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!

  39. 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!!

  40. Alicia R. says:

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

  41. Tracy Liller says:

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

  42. Rhea Hayes says:

    Yum! Sweet enough to be a dessert.

  43. Ogechi Nwaokelemeh says:

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

  44. 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 .

  45. 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.

  46. Jimmye Porter says:

    Very tasty, a really clear/clean taste. I will make this again.

  47. pennote says:

    I made this up this morning and added a small chunk of candied ginger for added zing. Frozen nectarines were substituted for peaches and I used half a frozen banana. Terrific!

  48. Churice R. says:

    Not as thick as I would like it but good flavor.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Hi Churice! You can totally add some additional banana, a touch of mango, a bit of avocado, or unflavored collagen powder to thicken any smoothie if needed. Happy blending!

  49. Linda Markarian says:

    This is one delicious green smoothie. A great way to start things off!

  50. Melody Bell says:

    Very delicious. Had to swap out peaches for mangos.

  51. Stacie says:

    This smoothie has the perfect level of sweetness and creaminess. I used frozen peaches and substituted avocado for the banana. I would have liked a bit more peaches flavor, but fresh peaches might take care of that.

  52. Barbara says:

    My first try. Store was out of frozen peaches so used mango instead. Tasted strongly of spinach. So just okay. Maybe it would have been better with the peaches. I’ll try it again when I can find them.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Def let us know what you think when you get to try it with peaches Barbara. Also, if you need to back off the amount of spinach for your first couple of smoothies until you get used to it, go for it! Better to blend with a little less, than to not blend at all! 🙂

  53. Andromeda says:

    Delicious, I will make again.

  54. Jen says:

    Tastes great! I love all of your recipes that I try 🙂

  55. Jen says:

    Tastes great!

  56. Laura Jacobson says:

    This one was O.K., I added the plant protein powder, so this was breakfast for today. I would have liked a little more flavor, it just seemed a little flat.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Def feel free to add more peach next time to up that flavor profile, Laura. Way to start the 10-Day Challenge strong with adding protein powder!

  57. Annette says:

    I did not have peaches so used 2 cups of tangerines. I think that is a recipe from another day of the smoothie challenge. Really good. Funny how you can barely taste the spinach.

  58. Joyce Christmas says:

    Very good. I added the Simple Green Protein Smoothie Boost and made a meal out of it. I didn’t have peaches, and the store was out of frozen peaches, so I used frozen mangos. I will definitely make this again. Looking forward to making it with peaches next time.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Yay Joyce! Yes, mangoes, nectarines or apricots all make great subs for peaches.

  59. Cristina Ribeiro says:

    Light and refreshing, not overly sweet

  60. Tamara says:

    I added a little collagen powder to mine. This smoothie is not bad. Maybe I need some fresh country peaches. My frozen didn’t have enough flavor. Thank goodness summer is around the corner. To remedy this I added a couple antioxidant booster cubes. The hint of ginger gave me the kick I wanted.

  61. Karen says:

    Who know Spinach could be so yummy! I guess Popeye was right all along!

  62. Cynthia Williams Phelps says:

    Love everything about this smoothie— banana and peaches are delicious together!

  63. Cheryl says:

    I love peaches, but this was not my favorite flavor, although , to be fair, I didn’t measure carefully. I may not have used as many peaches as called for and probably used more spinach. Even though this is lower sugar, which I appreciate, I don’t do as well with too much fruit. I do think the flavor could be enhanced with some ginger, cardamom, or cinnamon. I’m thinking next time I might add blueberries or mango along with the peaches and make it with oatmilk instead of water.

  64. Jo Ann says:

    Will make this one often.

  65. Alyssa says:

    Simple, light, refreshing, and a great smoothie to start a spring green smoothie challenge. Wasn’t as peachy as I was expecting but that could have been cause I used a whole small banana. Also used milk instead of water so I had a bit of a peaches and cream flavour.

  66. Jenn. says:

    Liked it well enough but not a super wow…though that could have been because I used canned peaches, rinsed well. It’s all I could find for peaches in my area at the time.

  67. Amanda says:

    Very good! Also added Vanilla protein.

  68. Dana says:

    Delicious! Love how it still tastes great even when you switch out the spinach to kale and vice versa

  69. Jennifer A says:

    Light and refreshing! I boosted with a coconut smoothie cube to add some healthy fats and make it a little more creamy.

  70. Marlissa says:

    Such a refreshing smoothie! Simple, easy and delicious. I think this might be on repeat now!

  71. Vashti Phillips says:

    Deliciously sweet, creamy and satisfying. Enjoyed every bit of it.

  72. JQue says:

    Yummy Deliciousness. I added extra peaches and some protein powder..
    Yeeeeaaaahhh Baaabbbyyyy.
    I’m excited to be more consistent with my smoothies and to try these new recipes.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Yes JQue! Love that you are using the 10-Day Green Smoothie Challenge to get that plant-rawkin consistency!

  73. Penny says:

    Smooth and delicious! Added vanilla protein powder for meal. Low sugar too

  74. Cheryl Robillard says:

    So refreshing and simple. Nice for a quick easy healthy shake. Great way to start the 10 day challenge.

  75. Debbie A Meshishnek says:

    I thought it was very good, I added the protein I bought from you which was great too.

  76. Cynthia says:

    Refreshing and tasty! Not too sweet. I really like this one!

  77. Catherine Brown says:

    Fresh, springtime taste. Everyone loved it!

  78. Suzanne says:

    Excellent fresh taste – minimal ingredient list makes this a great first day smoothie. Added protein powder to make it a meal! Yummy start to the challenge!!

  79. Andrea Lowe Davis says:

    This smoothie is such a beautiful shade of green and has such a smooth, creamy texture! Perfect for spring. My husband loved it too!

  80. Dr. Aja Holmes says:

    I like the smoothie!! I was really good and low on sugar!! I added a steamed beet to mine and I could not taste it at all!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Aja, you’re so awesome! Those beets are totally upping your folate, antioxidant and Vitamin C game. You go girl!!

  81. Christina C. says:

    I made it today, added micro greens, kale, and broccoli shoots. After doing a 30 minute round trip walk to grocery to get frozen peaches!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      A smoothie AND a workout! Way to rawk Day 1 of the 10-Day Green Smoothie Challenge, Christina! 🙂

  82. ALBA ROCIO CLAVIJO says:

    I tried today this recipe and it tastes delicious!!! I am used to include more greens in my smoothies but I think this one is a very good start for the challenge.

  83. Dawn says:

    This was a really great start for the 10-Day Challenge! It was so easy to make in my personal blender!

  84. Stephanie B says:

    Not too sweet and great way to get some greens in! Also not very caloric so can easily d’Anjou with my oatmeal in the morning.

  85. Valeria Stewart says:

    It’s okay,. I tried to double it for two servings and might not have had to double the water, it wasn’t creamy enough. Either way to make it more creamy I added another banana, but that was my fault, still a clean smoothie! I used organic frozen peaches but not sure if it had enough flavor .I added the protein powder to make it a meal replacement,. I love that I can’t really taste it and it’s not gritty!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      So awesome that you made adjustments on the fly to make Healthy Peach Banana work for you! Next time, it’ll blend up perfectly for you. 🙂 Love that you’re lovin that Protein Smoothie Boost!

  86. Anita L Cain says:

    It blended beautifully, but this just isn’t my flavor profile.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      We hear ya, Anita. Peach can be a deal breaker for some, yet way to try new things! Def keep up the blending and let us know what you think of the other recipes. 🙂

  87. Kim Wernsman says:

    Loved it! Easy to pull together. Tastes great!! I will definitely make this one again. I served it in a Coke glass for fun.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Yes! Drinking your smoothies in diff jars, glasses or containers can be such fun. Anyone else rawk an interesting container for this one?

  88. Grace says:

    Great start to the Spring 2021 10-day smoothie challenge! I like how the beginner’s luck smoothie was changed to a pre-start trial smoothie because it’s the most sweet and a great introduction if you’re new to green smoothies. Added bonus was that prep weekend fell on Easter long weekend; great combo of time and fun! I like that day 1 is a less sweet smoothie. I altered mine by adding kale, cilantro, anti-inflammatory smoothie cubes, and hemp protein powder. Therefore I cannot comment on the original flavour, but mine was tangy and tasty!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Such pro tips and swaps Grace! Thank you for all the lovely feedback. We really appreciate it!

  89. Nancy Lewellen says:

    Tastes great, creamy, didn’t separate. Much better tan any green smoothie I have made before!

  90. Erin says:

    I love the Peach Banana Smoothie! It tastes delicious and is healthy! I added some protein powder, chia seeds and ground flax. I used coconut water instead of plain water. Delicious start of the day!

  91. Pat L. says:

    Less sweet than I imagined considering the banana. I love bananas but even half seems to overpower the taste of the peaches. I might adjust to less banana, more peach next time.

  92. Angele LeFort says:

    Loved it
    Had it first thing this morning. You can feel the energy from the drink pretty quickly afterwards

  93. Ellie says:

    Not too sweet, super simple to throw together.

  94. Jacquie Kelley says:

    Yum!

  95. Violeta says:

    This was so good. I didn’t taste the spinach. I did add chia seeds.
    I give it a 10
