This banana peach smoothie is perfect in its simplicity - just frozen banana, fresh peach, ice, yogurt, and honey. It's super thick because there's no added liquid, since peaches are so juicy!

Here's what you'll need to make this banana peach smoothie:
- Frozen banana: by freezing the banana, this helps keep the smoothie nice and thick.
- Peach (unfrozen): I used fresh, not frozen peach. Keeping the peach fresh helps the smoothie blend without having to add a lot of extra liquid. If you have frozen peaches that you want to use, see the FAQ section below where I give tips for substituting frozen peaches.
- Ice: this keeps the smoothie cold longer and helps give it a thick texture.
- Greek yogurt: provides creaminess and a little bit of extra tang.
- Honey: this is optional, but I like to add a touch since it helps to enhance the peach flavor, in my opinion!
You can if you want to, but I made this smoothie with unpeeled peaches, and I didn't even notice the peel at all! So, if it were me, I wouldn't bother.
You can use frozen rather than fresh peach, but you need to make a couple modifications. First, use non-frozen banana. Also, you will need to add a splash of liquid, because the frozen peach is much harder than frozen banana, and it won't blend well otherwise. You can try adding milk, or even peach nectar!
This recipe calls for 1 - 2 tablespoons of honey. This is just enough to add a touch of sweetness. But, depending on how ripe your peach is, and your personal tastes, you may want to add a little more sweetness.
You can always add more honey, but too much could become overpowering, depending on how strong the flavor of your honey is. For a sweeter smoothie, I like to use flavored Greek yogurt instead of plain. Peach or vanilla would be delicious!
I have my own little technique for freezing bananas - basically, I add it to a zip top bag whole, remove the air and then squish it with my finger through the bag to break it up (no chopping required!). You can read more about freezing bananas in my Kiwi Banana Smoothie post.
Smoothie making tips
Here are a couple quick smoothie tips to help you make the best banana peach smoothie possible!
- Blend up the peach, banana, honey and yogurt first, before adding the ice. These ingredients are softer and wetter, so they blend more easily. Then, the blender won't have to work so hard once the ice is added in.
- Don’t over blend, this will cause your smoothie to get watery as the ingredients start to warm up!
- If your blender needs a bit of help to get started, add a tiny splash of water, milk, or juice. But, just enough to get the ingredients going. If you add too much your smoothie will be too watery. I love using my Vitamix blender (affiliate link). It’s super powerful so I never need to add extra water.
- I also highly recommend this tamper tool (affiliate link) that helps stir up ingredients while they blend. This will enable you to blend a thicker smoothie without having to add any extra liquid.
- This banana peach smoothie recipe makes about 16 ounces (or maybe a little more), enough for one large smoothie. If you want to double the recipe, work in batches so the blender has enough room to properly combine the ingredients.

Banana Peach Smoothie
An easy and quick smoothie featuring the flavors of banana and peach, with Greek yogurt and a touch of honey.
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 5 minutes
- Yield: 1 smoothie 1x
- Category: breakfast, drinks, snacks
- Method: blend
- Cuisine: American
- 1 medium banana, frozen
- 1 ripe peach
- ¼ cup Greek yogurt (plain or flavored)
- 1 - 2 tablespoons honey (optional)
- 1 cup ice
- Cut the peach into large chunks. If necessary, break or cut the frozen banana into chunks.
- Place the peach, frozen banana, Greek yogurt, and honey (if using) into the pitcher of a blender. Blend just until smooth. (Only if necessary, add a tiny splash of milk, water or juice to help the ingredients start to blend. Better yet, use a tamper to help the ingredients combine!)
- Add the ice and blend again, just until smooth. Serve immediately.
If you have frozen peaches instead of fresh, you can still use them! Just swap the frozen banana for a non-frozen one. And, because frozen peach is much firmer than frozen banana, you will need to add some additional liquid to help the ingredients combine (water, milk, or juice). Start with a small amount of liquid and add more as needed to avoid making the smoothie too watery.
