What You Need to Make Peach and Banana Smoothie
- Frozen peaches: The frozen fruit helps to thicken up your smoothie. You can keep frozen peaches in the freezer for when a smoothie craving strikes.
- Banana: The recipe calls for ripe bananas with a few spots because they are naturally sweet.
- Milk: I use full-fat milk to achieve a creamy smoothie but you can use any kind of milk you like.
- Vanilla yogurt: Vanilla yogurt adds a touch of sweetness and a luscious and creamy texture.
- Maple syrup: Maple Syrup adds a perfect touch of sweetness to the smoothie.
Pour all the ingredients into the mixer and give a few pulses until it is completely smooth and there is no large piece of fruit inside. You can also add a few pieces of an ice cube to have an icy texture smoothie. Top your smoothie with chopped peaches and sprigs of mint.
The good news is that you can always play around with the ingredients and flavors in smoothie recipes.
- Milk: You can replace dairy milk with almond milk, coconut milk, or any vegan milk of your choice.
- Sweetener: I think this smoothie made with vanilla yogurt, is sweet enough on its own but if you prefer a sweeter smoothie, add a dash of maple syrup, agave syrup, or honey.
- Protein Powder: To boost the protein content of your breakfast try adding a scoop of your favorite protein powder to the smoothie.
- Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract adds a subtle vanilla flavor to the smoothie.
- Peach nectar: Smoothies have a liquid base such as fruit juice and milk. In this recipe, you can swap the milk for peach nectar. Of course, if you use peach nectar in this recipe, you don’t need to add sweetener.
Can Smoothies Be Made Ahead and Refrigerated?
I prefer to enjoy smoothies right away. This peach and banana smoothie is best eaten immediately, or at least within 1 day. So if you’ve got some leftover smoothie pour it into an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator. If the smoothie starts to separate with time, just shake it up before drinking or use a spoon to mix it.
