Ingredients + Notes
The ingredients for this vegan smoothie are fresh and simple. Enjoy!
- Banana: Ripe bananas add that natural sweetness without having to add any sugar. If you want things a little sweeter, you could also add maple syrup to keep your smoothie vegan. Frozen banana can also work too, giving it a thicker texture.
- Peaches: Using frozen peaches means you don’t need to wait for them to be in season at your grocery store. If you have fresh peaches, a great way to ensure you don’t let them go to waste is by freezing them.
- Oat Milk: I used oat milk in my easy banana peach smoothie, though you can use your milk of choice. If you’re not vegan, you can use whole milk, but any other non-dairy milk will work for those who want to keep things vegan.
- Hemp Hearts: Hemp hearts add protein to your smoothie. If you don’t have them, you could also use a scoop of protein powder.
- Ginger: Keep inflammation at bay with ginger which adds a naturally lovely flavor to your smoothie recipe. The kids won’t even notice!

- Maple Syrup: I am a fan of letting the fruit sweeten smoothies, though if you want things sweeter, maple syrup is the way to go.
- Plant Milk: I tend to use unsweetened oat milk or unsweetened almond milk because that is what we usually get at the grocery store. I recommend using whatever plant milk you might have on hand, though. Soy milk is another great option.
- Yogurt: Plant-based yogurts such as coconut yogurt, almond yogurt, or vegan unsweetened Greek yogurt can add to the creamy texture of this banana peach smoothie recipe.
- Protein powder: This easy banana peach smoothie can get a boost of plant-based protein by adding a scoop of protein powder.
Peach Smoothie Topping Ideas
- Chia Seeds: These are really absorbent and can make for a super fun texture, like a pudding!
- Flax Seeds: If you like thick smoothies, flax seeds can enhance the thickness for a richer texture.
- Sliced Peaches: Garnish your banana peach smoothie with some sliced peaches on top. There’s nothing more delightful than fresh peaches!
- Granola: Homemade granola adds a delightful crunch to any easy smoothie recipe.
- Herbs: A sprig of fresh herbs such as rosemary or thyme can really add to this cold smoothie. You can use them with the ginger that is called for in the recipe or in place of it.
I always recommend consuming your smoothie the same day. If you don’t get around to it, here are my top tips!
Leftover smoothie can be stored in an airtight glass jar in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
Pour any leftover smoothie into a popsicle mold for a cold peach treat to enjoy later. Alternatively, pour the extra smoothie into an ice cube tray to add to the next vegan smoothie you make.
Strawberries and mangos are other fruits that blend so well with peaches. You can add them together with the bananas as well or use them as swaps to make this smoothie your own.
You don’t need to peel your peaches for a smoothie. When using frozen peaches, you can just toss them into your high-speed blender, and it will all come together. Besides, there is so much nutrition in the skins of our fruits and vegetables. By peeling it away, we tend to miss out on the very things we need.
Whole fruits give you more fiber content than smoothies. However, to get a quick burst of nutrition and energy, especially when you have trouble eating enough fruits, a smoothie can really help. If you add spinach to make a green smoothie, you’ll be ensuring you’re getting those essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that you may not always be keen about eating on your own.
A smoothie can definitely replace a meal, though it should check all the boxes. It’s great for a healthy and quick snack too, but if you want it as a meal, make sure you’re getting protein in it so that you have all the nutrients your body needs to power through until your next meal.
