Creamy Peach Smoothie Recipe | Ambitious Kitchen

Okay, I’ve been the biggest peach lover for years now and have found ways to sneak the lovely summer fruit into any type of recipe. If you haven’t yet grilled peaches or added them to salmon tacos, get ready for some real magic.

I truly can’t believe I didn’t have a deliciously creamy peach smoothie recipe on the site until just a couple of years ago! I’ve, of course, had this recipe on my must-make list for a while now and when I finally tested it out back in 2022 I knew I needed to get it on the blog ASAP.

I call this my “pretty in pink” because it has the most beautiful color and incredible flavor from the addition of raspberries or strawberries. I love that they don’t overpower the peach flavor, but just add subtle hints of sweetness and berry flavor. This peach smoothie is ultra creamy and packed with protein thanks to greek yogurt (feel free to use dairy free!) and you seriously only need 5 total ingredients to make it. This one’s a must before summer ends!

5-ingredient peach smoothie recipe

This healthy peach smoothie with yogurt has simple ingredients but an incredible, creamy peach flavor! Here’s what you’ll need to make it:

  • Peaches: you’ll need frozen peach slices for that delicious peach flavor.
  • Berries: I like to add frozen raspberries or strawberries for additional fruit sweetness and a pretty pink color.
  • Yogurt: get that peaches and cream flavor and a boost of protein with vanilla greek yogurt.
  • Milk: to help the smoothie blend up you’ll add your favorite regular or dairy free milk.
  • Vanilla extract: a little vanilla brings out all of the natural sweetness. Learn how to make your own at home with this tutorial!

Customize your peach smoothie

This easy peach smoothie recipe is great for customizing with your fav smoothie ingredients, toppings, and more. Here’s what I can recommend:

  • Make it vegan/dairy free: simply use your favorite dairy free yogurt and dairy free milk to keep the peach smoothie both dairy free and vegan. I think a coconut-based yogurt would be delicious!
  • Choose your extra fruit: I love the flavor and color that raspberries and strawberries add to this peach smoothie, but it would also be delicious with blueberries or even banana.
  • Have fun with toppings: try adding my homemade granola on top, plus some extra fresh fruit slices for the ultimate treat!

Looking for more sweetness?

Because this peach smoothie is made without banana, the sweetness depends on the ripeness and/or seasonality of your frozen fruit. To make it sweeter you can add 1 pitted date or a little bit of honey/pure maple syrup and blend again until it’s sweet to your liking.

Try these easy nutritional boosters

Looking for another boost of nutrition in this creamy peach smoothie? Try adding any of the following, and remember to blend in a little more milk along with any of these additions.

  • Nut butter: for an additional boost of healthy fats feel free to blend in 1 tablespoon of your fav nut butter. I think almond butter would be perfect in this peach smoothie!
  • Flaxseed meal: this is one of my favorite ingredients to add to smoothies for a boost of fiber and minerals, and is especially great for nursing mamas as flaxseed can help increase milk supply. Here’s a brand I love.
  • Chia seeds: try adding in a tablespoon of chia seeds for a boost of healthy fats and fiber.
  • Hemp seeds: feel free to throw in some hemp seeds for another boost of healthy fats, omegas and minerals.
  • Avocado: add healthy fats and extra creaminess by adding ripe avocado. Usually, 1/4 or 1/2 of an avocado will be sufficient and also help to keep you satisfied thanks to those healthy fats.
  • Protein: Easily add more protein to this turmeric smoothie by adding 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder (vanilla would be delicious!) I recommend Vital Protein collagen peptides or Four Sigmatic Plant-Based Protein Powder.

Our best smoothie-making tips

With these tips and tricks you’ll have the creamiest peach smoothie every time:

  1. Use frozen fruit. This will help keep the smoothie cold and thick. Sometimes ice doesn’t blend as well, so it’s best to skip it unless absolutely necessary. If you only have fresh fruit, try adding 1 cup of frozen cauliflower.
  2. Add liquid. Don’t be afraid to add more liquid if your smoothie is too thick or won’t fully blend. High powered blenders tend to blend frozen fruit much better, so if you have a regular or personal size blender, you may need to add more coconut milk.
  3. Start low, go high. Start the blender on low speed, then gradually increase to high to help blend all ingredients. Finally, end with the blender on low speed.

Prep Time 5 minutes

Total Time 5 minutes

Serves1 serving

Creamy and delicious peach smoothie made with 5 simple ingredients for a refreshing, filling breakfast or snack! This easy peach smoothie recipe gets a boost of protein from greek yogurt and has the perfect amount of sweetness from ripe peaches and berries. Enjoy as is or add your fav nutritional boosters!


  • For the smoothie:
  • 1 heaping cup frozen peach slices
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries or strawberries
  • ½ cup vanilla greek yogurt (or sub dairy free yogurt of choice)
  • 1 cup unsweetened dairy free milk of choice (i use almond milk but coconut milk would be YUM)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • To garnish:
  • Granola and fresh raspberries/peach slices


  • Add all ingredients to a high powered blender: frozen peaches, frozen raspberries, yogurt, milk and vanilla extract. Feel free to add any optional add-ins to your smoothie if you’d like. Blend until smooth, adding more milk to thin, if necessary. Taste and add honey to sweeten as necessary then blend again; this is totally optional but some might prefer a sweeter smoothie. Pour into a glass and enjoy! Serves 1. Feel free to double the recipe to serve 2.

Recipe Notes

Feel free to add 1 tablespoon almond butter for a boost of healthy fats. I also love to add a tablespoon or two of hemp seeds but it’s up to you.
If the smoothie isn’t sweet enough, which typically depends on the ripeness/seasonality of your frozen fruit, you can add 1 pitted date or a little bit of honey/pure maple syrup and blend again until it’s sweet to your liking.
If you want a boost of greens, add in 1-2 cups of spinach; the color will change but the flavor will not.
