Peach Banana Smoothie
There are a ton of nutrients in peaches. They are a great source of vitamin C and vitamin A. Peaches also have lots of fiber in them which helps your digestive health! And don’t forget potassium- peaches are one of the top potassium-rich fruits which help balance fluids and electrolytes in your body.
All of the good health benefits in one smoothie! Yes, please!
I love mixing peaches and bananas together. Their soft light flavors compliment each other so nicely. Drinking this smoothie will wake you up and give you the energy you need to start your day! This peach banana smoothie is also SUPER kid-friendly. My kids can vouch for that!
How to Make a Peach Smoothie
PREP. Grab all your ingredients together- banana cut into chunks, one ripe peach, low fat peach yogurt, orange juice, and ice cubes. You could also use frozen fruit if you prefer- just omit the ice cubes! If you’d rather not use yogurt, try some almond milk or a little but of almond butter! Both of those are great substitutes.
BLEND. Combine all of those ingredients into a blender. Blend for 1-2 minutes or until it’s smooth and frothy. Pour into a glass and enjoy all of that peachy goodness!
Tips + Variations
No need to peel a peach for a smoothie. The skin can stay on and isn’t even noticed once it’s blended in with the other smoothie ingredients.
If you only have canned peaches, we recommend taking them out of the can, placing them in a freezer bag and freezing over night. It will make it more of a smoothie consistency instead of a smoothie juice if you use them directly from the can.
- Greek yogurt
- coconut milk
- spinach or other greens
- almond milk
- almond butter
Making Ahead and Storing
Prep ingredients ahead of time. Wash, slice, and divide the fruit into individual sized portions and keep them in Ziploc bags in the freezer. The yogurt can be frozen in an ice cube tray. The ice and juice are best added to the smoothie right before mixing. With the ingredients prepped like this, you can take the ingredients straight from the freezer to the blender!
To STORE leftovers, add a little bit of lemon juice or Sure Fresh so the smoothie doesn’t brown. If there’s a little room at the top of the container, cut a piece of plastic wrap and place it directly onto the top of the smoothie. Store in the fridge for 12 hours or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
