Peach Smoothie

Peach season is back! No one is more excited than me.

Last summer, we picked peaches at a local farm, and after doing so, we had so many left in our freezer! Here's how I freeze peaches to have handy for later recipes!

There are only so many bowls of peach ice cream and peach cobbler you can take before you get tired of dessert!

That's when we started making lots of peach smoothies. I've been perfecting this recipe ever since with frozen peaches.

Now that peaches are back in season, I love making it with fresh peaches again.

Why you'll love this recipe

tasty smoothies are so, so good, especially in the summer! And there's nothing like a good smoothie, either.

Here's why we love to make this peach smoothie recipe.

  • You can make them with fresh peaches or use the ones from the frozen section of the grocery store.
  • With only four ingredients, peach smoothies make for easy mornings.
  • It tastes so amazing, like a peaches-and-cream milkshake — but better!

Ingredients

These peach smoothies are super simple to make. Here's what you'll need to make them:

  • frozen peaches - You can buy these in the frozen section of the grocery store. You can also use fresh peaches. See the section below called "how to par-freeze peaches."
  • banana - A fresh banana will do, but you can also use frozen banana. Bananas help to thicken smoothies.
  • plain, unsweetened yogurt - You can use any type of yogurt, even non-dairy yogurt. I like to use Greek yogurt in smoothies sometimes.
  • unsweetened almond milk - You can use regular dairy milk or another non-dairy milk if you prefer.
  • granola - Totally optional, but I like adding a little pinch of crunch. I started adding granola after having an acai bowl with my son on a trip to Austin. Even if it's a small amount it adds fun texture to the smoothie!

How to par-freeze peaches

If using fresh peaches it is best to par-freeze them first. This will help keep the smoothie thick!

There is no need to peel the peaches first, there is extra nutrition in the skin!

Slice the peaches and lay them on a baking sheet in freezer for 10-20 minutes.

How to make peach smoothies

Add ingredients to blender. I recommend adding the yogurt and almond milk first, then the fruits. This helps the blender work in stages as gravity and centrifugal force of the blade sink the fruit toward the blade at the bottom.

Then, blend until smooth. About 45 seconds on medium-high speed should do the trick. Pour into glasses and enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

Feel free to use non-dairy yogurt or omit it completely if needed. This recipe is delightful with unsweetened coconut yogurt.

If using store-bought frozen peaches, the smoothie color may be lighter and less sweet than peaches that are fresh and in season.

If smoothie is too thick, add more almond milk ¼ cup at a time. If too thin, you can add additional peaches or yogurt.

Top with chopped peaches or granola! Or both.

Are you cleaning your blender well? There's nothing like old caked-on gunk — or worse, an odor — to ruin your smoothie. Here's how to clean a blender properly.

Peach smoothie variations

  • Peach mango smoothie — Replace half the peaches with frozen or fresh mango.
  • Strawberry peach smoothie — Replace half the peaches with frozen or fresh strawberries. (We got this idea from our strawberry banana smoothie!)
  • Peaches and cream smoothie — Instead of pouring your smoothie all the way into your glass, start with a little bit. Layer the peach smoothie in your glass with more yogurt, then more smoothie, then more yogurt, and top it off with the rest of the smoothie.
  • Peach smoothie bowl — Pour the smoothie into a bowl instead of a glass. Add fresh peaches, strawberries, blueberries, granola and more yogurt, then enjoy with a spoon.
  • Dairy free peach smoothie — Use non-dairy milk and non-dairy yogurt to make this smoothie.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have to peel peaches for smoothies?

Once blended the skins will blend in (only adding pretty speckles to your smoothie). There is no need to peel the peaches first, there is extra nutrition in the skin. Just be sure to properly wash your peaches first.

What fruit goes with peach?

Bananas, strawberries, or pineapple are great compliments to peaches, especially for smoothies.

What liquid to put in fruit smoothie?

Regular dairy milk or another unsweetened non-dairy milk is generally used for a fruit smoothie. Some fruit smoothies will use coconut milk or a fruit juice.

How do you cut peaches for smoothies?

Peaches for smoothies can be cut into chunks or slices.

How do you peel peaches for smoothies?

The easiest way to peel peaches is to place a few at a time in boiling water for about 30 seconds, then transfer them with tongs to an ice bath (a bowl of ice and water). This softens the skins enough to use a vegetable peeler without removing too much of the flesh.
