This healthy Peach Smoothie is made with summer fruits and is naturally sweetened. It’s refreshing, hydrating and packed with vegan protein.
Smoothies are frequent in my home all year round. However, I try and use seasonal produce for my smoothies most of the time. Since peaches are in the season so it had to go into my beverage.
I enjoy blending variety of fruits and veggies together with some dairy free milk along with some protein seeds into it to make it wholesome and healthier. So, therefore, this peach smoothie recipe is one of my kind.
I am very excited to share it with you here because I would love you to enjoy this easy peach smoothie.
Ingredients for Peach Smoothie
Frozen mango chunks
Dairy free milk
All these are easily available ingredients. I have not used any expensive or exotic ingredients for this vegan smoothie recipe.
- Peaches – I have used fresh yellow peaches for this recipe but you may use frozen as well. I love the juice and softness of this fruit. Moreover, I wanted to enjoy it seasonal so I used the fresh produce. If it’s not in the season then go ahead blend the frozen ones but make sure that you use yellow peaches or yellow nectarines.
- Banana – Usually, I blend fresh bananas along with the rest of the ingredients but this time I went with a frozen one. I was happy that it gave this smoothie a thick and creamy texture. I must tell you that freezing a banana is extremely simple and it actually makes your smoothie creamy.
- Hemp seeds – It’s a vegan protein seeds that comes under the super food category. Its high in fiber and other nutrients. I usually like to add some protein to my beverages and this time I decided to go with this. Also, I did not want to change the original colors of the blended fruits so hemp seeds worked very well with my smoothie recipe.
- Almond butter – It gives a subtle almond like taste to the smoothie making it rich and flavorful. If you have nut allergy then simply skip this altogether.
- Dates – they are absolutely optional in this recipe. If you are watching calories or are not fond of dates then simply skip it. However, my family loves a little sweetened smoothie so I blended these for them in this peach smoothie recipe.
How to make Peach Smoothie
Firstly, I combined all the ingredients in a blender (except dates) and then blended it smooth. At this stage I quickly taste tested it. For me, it tasted perfect so I poured my share into my glass. Then, I added dates to the rest of it and blended it again.
Lastly, I poured it in the serving glasses and served immediately.
- When you freeze banana make sure to peel it. You may freeze it overnight or if you are short of time just one hour of freezing will work too.
- It is important to use a high-speed blender to make sure that the dates are well blended or else there might be bite sized pieces in your beverage.
- Please do not get tempted to use peanut butter in this recipe for simple reason that we do want peanut flavor in it.
I know it is extremely easy to blend so I urge you to not wait and quickly try it out since summer is already here and the sun is shining bright.
I used fresh yellow peaches to give it a seasonal touch. If it’s not available then you use frozen ones but not canned.
This peach smoothie tastes best when served immediately.
No, blend it with the skin to add fiber and taste to this drink.
I have blended fruits along with protein rich hemp seeds and dairy free milk. Therefore, this vegan peach smoothie is very healthy and kid friendly too.
As I mentioned earlier that you do not need peel peaches for this recipe. So, wash it thoroughly and simply slice them and dispose of the middle big seed.
