Healthy Peach Banana Smoothie


Blend this Peach Banana 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 and 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 smoothie can easily be made with frozen peaches. Furthermore, sliced up and freeze a bunch of peaches during harvest time to enjoy a little bit of summer when it feels like it is a distant memory.

Low Sugar Smoothie (but not when it comes to flavor)

Peaches and bananas are both low on the glycemic scale making 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, which can slow down the absorption of fruit sugar into your blood stream and 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.”

Your health lies in the health of your gut, so eat and drink up that fiber-rich fruit and veggies! They’re natures scrubbing brush.

Turn Your Peach Smoothie Into a Meal

Because this is a low-cal smoothie, it’s not a great meal replacement on its own. You can upgrade this peach banana smoothie to a meal easily though 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 favorite 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 Peach Banana Smoothie is no exception. Use simple, healthy ingredients and your tastebuds and your body will thank you!
