This peach banana smoothie is one of my favorite summertime recipes when the farmer's market is loaded with sweet, juicy peaches.
It really is perfect for warm summer days when you need something cold and refreshing to cool off and relax.
If you love fresh peaches be sure to check out my peach pie overnight oats recipe, as well.
As you've probably noticed from my smoothie recipes I love making weight-loss-friendly smoothies without yogurt! They are wonderfully thick, creamy, and tasty even though they are yogurt-free.
Now, ready to get blending?
You will need a few whole foods to make this simple peach and banana smoothie for weight loss:
- Fresh peach - you can blend in frozen peach but in this case, use a fresh banana. They are a rich source of fiber, natural sugars, and antioxidants.
- Frozen banana - for a nice and thick smoothie base. Also, it's an excellent source of potassium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C.
- Almond milk (unsweetened) - you can use your favorite plant-based milk, as well.
- Chia seeds - for plant protein, healthy omega-3 fats, and rich, thicker smoothie texture.
- Pure maple syrup - or your preferred liquid sweetener, for added sweetness. Skip it if your peach and banana are ripe and sweet.
- Turmeric powder - contains curcumin, a natural compound that has huge anticancer, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.
As always, you can find the full recipe with a list of ingredients with measurements in a printable recipe card at the end of this post.
Combine. Add sliced peach, frozen banana chunks, chia seeds, maple syrup (if using), turmeric powder, and almond milk in a high-speed blender.
Blend. Blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust the sweetness with maple syrup if needed. Serve immediately with fresh mint spring, chopped fruit, or crispy granola.
Hint: Don't have frozen bananas?
Simply peel and slice fresh bananas, spread in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and freeze for 1-2 hours. Take the sheet pan out of the freezer and transfer frozen banana chunks to a freezer-friendly bag or storage container.
- Peach - replace it with fresh nectarine. They both have a similar flavor and nutritional profile.
- Banana - for a peach smoothie without banana, replace it with ½ avocado, ¼ cup rolled oats, or ½ cup frozen cauliflower florets.
- Chia seeds- use flaxseed, hemp seeds, or pumpkin seeds instead of chia seeds.
- Almond milk - oat milk, coconut milk, cashew milk, soy milk, or plain water are great alternatives.
- Maple syrup - you can substitute it with agave nectar, liquid stevia, or 1-2 dates.
- Turmeric powder - swap it with ½ tablespoon grated fresh turmeric.
Give this banana peach smoothie a nutritional boost by including some of these healthy ingredients:
- Add other frozen fruit - add frozen pineapple, orange, mango, blueberries, or strawberries instead of banana for an icy cold multivitamin fruity shake.
- Add protein - blend in a scoop of plant-based protein powder or non-dairy Greek yogurt for an extra boost of protein.
- Add greens - a handful of baby spinach, kale, or a mix of leafy greens would be a nice addition for immunity boosting and healthy weight management. Quick note: greens will change the color of the smoothie but won't affect as much to its taste.
- Add herbs - a few leaves of fresh mint or basil will add a bright and fragrant twist to your peach smoothie for weight loss.
All you need to make this no-yogurt peach smoothie recipe is a high-powered blender.
I highly recommend you consume this smoothie immediately. Alternatively, you can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
Since separation may occur, make sure to give it a good shake before consuming. Also, note that it may change color due to oxidation but don't worry, it's totally edible and delish just less visually appealing.
Optionally, you can put it in a freezer-safe container or ice cube tray and keep it in the freezer for up to 2 months.
- Use ripe, organic peaches and bananas. You may want to skip the addition of maple syrup or any sweetener if your fruit is naturally sweet and flavorful.
- Taste it first. After you blend up, check the level of sweetness to your smoothie. Only then use a sweetener of choice and adjust it to your taste.
- Don't peel your peaches. You don't want to miss that extra fiber and antioxidants found in the peel.
- For an extra thick and frosty texture use either frozen bananas or frozen peaches.
- If fresh peaches aren't available you can use frozen. If so, use fresh banana instead of frozen.
- If your smoothie is too thick add more milk to thin it out.
Peach Banana Smoothie Benefits
This scrumptious smoothie with peaches and bananas is packed with nutrients and surprisingly good for you.
Actually, peaches and bananas are loaded with immune-boosting vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.
Moreover, chia seeds are full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and plant protein.
Furthermore, turmeric powder contains a natural compound curcumin that has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
When all these ingredients are blended with low-calorie almond milk (an amazing source of vitamin E) you will enjoy a super nutritious drink that will hydrate your body and skin, aid your digestion and gut health, and promote a feeling of fullness.
This will help you burn calories faster, reduce belly fat, and aid in weight loss.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The simplest method is to cut your peach in half all the way around. Hold each half, twist it in opposite directions, and remove the pit. Place each half on a cutting board, cut into quarters, and slice (or dice).
Alternatively, hold your peach in your hand and with the other slice each piece directly from the pit (fast and easy way).
Any unsweetened dairy-free milk (oat milk, almond milk, soy milk), coconut water, or plain water can be a great option for your smoothie base. Also, coffee + milk can be a yummy liquid combo to add to your smoothie mix, just like in my chocolate coffee breakfast smoothie.
No, you don't need to throw away the peach skin. It's edible and perfectly safe to eat. Unpeeled peaches contain significantly more fiber and disease-fighting antioxidants than peeled peaches.
Drinking smoothies made of clean whole foods like fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds without added sugar or processed ingredients can be an effective way to slim down and lose weight. However, eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and having a good night's sleep are key to achieving long-term health and wellness.
