Healthy Peach Banana Smoothie

By: Jen Hansard | last Updated: 12.17.2018 | COMMENTS: 96


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!

  1. Stacia Wilson says:

    I didn’t have peaches but I had mango. It is a simple smoothie but had great flavor.

  2. Fiona Gough says:

    I used blackboy peaches and it was really good.

  3. Grace says:

    Great start to the smoothie challenge! Glad to read this combination is low on the glycemic scale, yet still tastes delicious. I did not have enough ripe or frozen peaches so I added some frozen cantaloupe, as well as black chia seeds and pea protein powder. Cheers to health!

  4. Tim says:

    This smoothie was very creamy and great tasting. Fresh ginger is a great addition. I really liked it a lot.

  5. Sherri Lyness says:

    So good.

  6. Jessica says:

    Had to use frozen peaches and it tasted good but I plan on making it again when I can get some fresh, juicy local peaches. I subbed almond milk (MALK) and added a chunk of fresh ginger root and it was creamy and delicious.

  7. Anita says:

    Great tasting smoothie. So refreshing.

  8. Shelli B says:

    This one was just okay, not sure why I didn’t like it as much. I didn’t have a fresh peach and used frozen – that might be it. Will try again when I can get a fresh peach.

  9. Michelle says:

    Very good

  10. Amy Maxfield says:

    Bananas make all things smooth and sweet!
    I love the smoothies, and love the community MORE!

  11. Amber says:

    Very yummy

  12. Alissabeth says:

    Tasty! Not too sweet.

  13. Tracy says:

    I had to use mango instead, were under quarantine so some foods are limited. It was still delicious!

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      That’s totally ok, Tracy! You made what you have work for the smoothie and you’re still blending so that’s a win in our book!

  14. Gaynelle says:

    No peaches—but mango works great!

  15. Olivia says:

    Simple and I like that the ingredients can be purchased frozen at the grocery store. Seems like frozen fruits are a bit easier for me to find lately.

  16. Millie says:

    Yummy, just wish I had fresh peaches. I feel like the flavour would be better if I had fresh peaches.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      I agree, I love fresh peaches much better. When I can’t find them though, I thaw my frozen peaches overnight and when I blend them in my smoothies, that great peach flavor is a bit more pronounced.

  17. Sher says:

    Day 1 smoothie was great. Took it on the go to my office this morning. Posted picture on IG. I like that it wasn’t too sweet but great consistency. I did a mixture of spinach and kale. Super excited and looking forward to day 2

  18. Shelley says:

    Day 1 Smoothie, I really liked it. Delicious

  19. Shayla says:

    I’m in Thailand for a year, so the frozen peaches I was able to get my hands on are pretty bland. But I can see how this can be a pretty tasty smoothie!

  20. Meagan says:

    Kids gave this smoothie a 5! I used coconut water & dinosaur kale + one large carrot. It was really thin closer to a juice but my son asked for more so I’ll take that as a win

  21. HikerC says:

    Day 1..check
    Used mango instead of peach and because it was a meal replacement, added 1 scoop protein powder and 1 Tbsp chia seeds. Had the energy and brain power I needed to kick start my day!

  22. Cynthia says:

    Delicious and creamy!!

  23. Rosalie says:

    Enjoyed this simple recipe! I added a scoop of vanilla protein, which blended with the flavors well.

  24. marie fraser says:

    I love this peach smoothie:) Yum!!

  25. Kimberlee says:

    I let my frozen peaches thaw a little and that made a difference! I wanted to add some cinnamon but I added kefir.

  26. Susan says:

    Nice and refreshing! Terrific after my 5 mile run today!

  27. Erin says:

    This recipe just makes me feel like springtime! For me, it had just the right amount of sweetness.

  28. Barbara says:

    Peach and banana flavors shine through that makes this simple smoothie a favorite!! I did add 1 Tbsp of chia seeds at the end, let it sit for a couple minutes before sipping this delightfully fresh smoothie! (I used peaches I froze last summer.) I’ll make this one again and try it with avocado in place of the banana.

  29. Jeannette Charles says:

    Having it today for mid day drink instead. Yum.

  30. Joanna Keczkowska says:

    Very good smoothie

  31. Lelian says:

    This was really good. I added some peach protein powder to keep me full longer. But yummy!!!!

  32. Laura A Soracco says:

    I appreciated this recipe because it gave me a perfect portion! While I already make really good smoothies, I do tend to blend too much or add too many sweet ingredients. Thanks!

  33. Alicia says:

    It definitely wasn’t sweet as I thought it would but good nonetheless!! Day 1 done! #greensmoothiechallenge

  34. Laura Woollen says:

    Made this for myself, my husband, and my three year old. It is simple and tasty. Love that my daughter is drinking her greens.

  35. Leslie says:

    I have a slight banana allergy where I cannot eat fully ripe bananas, so I used a slightly green banana. This is what I usually do when a recipe calls for bananas, but usually the other flavors (berries) are strong enough to cover the banana flavor. The peaches were just not strong enough to cover the tasted for me. I mixed a little vanilla, and it helped. I am super stoked for this challenge to help facilitate change in my life! Thanks, Simple Green Smoothies!

  36. Karen says:

    This recipe would be great with fresh, ripe, juicy peaches! Alas, I had to settle for frozen peaches which didn’t have much flavor but a little bit of ginger help make this smoothie very tasty.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Karen, I love fresh peaches in my smoothies! When they aren’t in season, I’ll thaw my frozen peaches overnight in the fridge and that helps the peach flavor stand out more. I also added ginger. 🙂 This smoothie was a great way to start the challenge!

  37. Ella says:

    So the day for us is almost over, here on this side of earth.
    My young one said it was sour, the older one said “mmm this is so sweet”.
    I Liked it since the banana coverd the kale that I added.
    So – 4 for me, I guess just because the peaches were not as strong in taste as I imagined.

  38. Jean says:

    I didn’t have bananas or peaches so used avacado and mango instead with a touch of cinnamon. Quite tasty!!

  39. Laura Young says:

    This smoothie was ok. It was a little heavy on the banana taste, but maybe I put a little more than 1/2 a banana, lol. There’s a hint of peach, which I thought there’d be more. I also added protein powder to make it a meal. Overall, I’d probably make this again, just tweak it a little bit.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Laura, did you use frozen peaches? I find that when I thaw my peaches overnight, I get a stronger peach flavor in my smoothie. 🙂

  40. Diana Gaze says:

    So simple & so good! Works well with kale too!

  41. Dawn says:

    I think I want to try this and the other peach recipes with fresh peaches. I like the convenience of frozen peaches but there’s not a lot of flavor with them. Through this challenge I’ve discovered that I really like smoothies that include oranges and then I used frozen orange for the first time and while it was good, it wasn’t quite as good as the ones where I used fresh orange. Thinking the frozen peaches may be the issue so since I love peaches, I’ll give this one another try.

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Dawn,

      We feel you! There is nothing like fresh fruit if you have access to that. I would definitely recommend trying this again with fresh peaches and see how you like it 🙂

  42. Shari says:

    Simple, fresh and delicious

  43. Christina says:

    Love this smoothie! I am a fan of anything peach, so I was excited to try this recipe.

  44. Tracy says:

    Peaches are my FAVORITE fruit, so this smoothie did not disappoint! I used frozen peaches for convenience and it still tasted amazing!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Yay!!

      Glad you were able to make it convenient for you and it still tasted delicious!

  45. Julie says:

    Used frozen peaches. Can’t wait until they are in season here, just a FEW more months.

  46. Beth says:

    I used frozen peaches, so I added extra to enhance the flavor, which was a good call. I can’t wait to try it during peach season.

  47. tiffany says:

    I love peaches, but this smoothie was not great for me. Maybe it is the frozen peaches that aren’t working for me. I will try it again though when fresh peaches are available.

  48. Meagan says:

    This was yum. I unknowingly blended a variation of this smoothie 2 days in a row because my body must have loved it!

  49. Liz says:

    Simple to make, missing a little something, but not bad!

  50. DonnaA says:

    I haven’t yet found anything I don’t like about these smoothies! I just love them all!❤️❤️❤️

  51. Pamela says:

    Love this smoothie, but I had a frozen fruit combo mixture that I used… Strawberries mango pineapple and peaches.

  52. Neal says:

    Nice and refreshing. I used a mix of mango, papaya and pineapple for the peaches as I had none and it was a good replacement.

  53. Taisha Turner says:

    Super bland and I tasted mostly spinach. Maybe would be better with fresh peaches.

  54. Valerie W says:

    Definitely need to let frozen peaches thaw a bit to get more of the peach flavor.

  55. Bethany Vines says:

    This was pretty bland, which is kind of what I was expecting since I feel like frozen peaches never have much flavor. I’d like to try it again in the summer with fresh, juicy peaches! Still not bad, though. Just very mild flavor.

  56. Cecilia Anderson says:

    Not typically a fan of peaches, so I never venture with them in smoothies until this week. I was surprised to find I actually liked this! I let the peaches thaw a little before blending to brimming out more of their natural sweetness.

  57. Cecily says:

    I loved this smoothie. Even my kids were asking for it, and that’s always a plus!

  58. Molly says:

    One of my favorites.

  59. Steph says:

    We had really, really ripe bananas and I wanted to taste the peach flavour of this smoothie, so I branched out and added avocado instead. It was so creamy and delicious! Hubby wanted the banana, so we made two and had a side by side comparison. The peach was definitely more noticeable in the avocado mix.

  60. Antoinette says:

    Delicious! Can’t wait to make it again!

  61. Laura White says:

    I I enjoyed this smoothie. I did substitute almond milk for the water to make it creamier. Overall it was simple and tasty.

  62. Anita says:

    Three stars I am not sure what I think about this combination so okay

  63. Patricia says:

    Refreshing!

  64. Megan Chaney says:

    I loved the Peach smoothie for today, definitely one of my favorite recipes so far! Some of the others didn’t blend quite well enough for me, I may have to convince the hubby to get me a nicer blender 🙂

  65. Jen says:

    Delicious and simple. Added wheat germ bc I have some leftover. Yum!

  66. Windy says:

    I love peaches this hit the spot. I also added chia and cocunut oil. Delicious!

  67. Clare says:

    I liked it. I didnt find it overpowering. I found it refreshing and tastey. I added chia and flax also

  68. Darlene Littlchild says:

    Smoothies have been delicious! It’s like resetting our tastebuds, lol. We can’t wait until next day, and week!Simple Peach was delicious #SimpleGreenSmoothies #30daychallenge

  69. Tamya says:

    This was just okay for me. I didn’t taste much peach. I’ll try fresh vs frozen next time and make sure they’re really ripe for the peachy flavor I’m craving!

  70. Jennifer says:

    I think this is the first smoothie I wasn’t crazy about. And I’ve tried a lot of different ones. I don’t taste the peach at all just spinach.

  71. Brittany Gibson says:

    Simple and Peachy! I enjoyed this light and refreshing smoothie. It was surprisingly flavorful and sweet. I also added Chia seeds and oats to make a meal replacement shake.

  72. Kelly says:

    Winner! Perfect breakfast this morning 🙂

  73. Bonnie says:

    Day 11: Simple Peach
    Simple and delicious

  74. Kathryn says:

    Made this one today, delicious as well, although not my favorite. I do love to switch it up from the usual berries!

  75. Lindsay Rodriguez says:

    Love that its low in sugar.

  76. Julie Fialho says:

    OMG this is my favorite smoothie by far!! So smooth and delicious!

  77. K D says:

    I was excited for peaches this week in the challenge, but this one was a bit blah. Maybe because I used romaine instead of spinach or kale? I barely tasted the peaches. :-/ Not giving up, there are so many others that are great! 🙂

  78. Anna says:

    So glad I saved some peaches from this summer in my freezer! It’s like summer in a glass!!! So good!

  79. Tiffany says:

    I love peaches and this one is awesome.

  80. Laura Birman says:

    I’ll have to use frozen peaches but this one was a good one!

  81. Lynn says:

    I’ll admit, this one tastes a little spinach-y to me. Most green smoothies are fruity enough that the only way I know it has spinach in it is because it’s green. The more I drink this one the less spinach flavor I get, so it’s not bad! It just took me a minute to get used to it.

  82. Gayathri says:

    Peaches are a little pricey in this region so I’m only getting started with this. Hope it tastes good! Also, the recipes call for fresh spinach. Is it the same if I use frozen spinach leaves?

  83. Christina says:

    I guess I best start liking peaches with yet another peach smoothie this week…lol

  84. Brianne says:

    This was fantastic! A favorite of mine. 🙂 Thanks!
