Ingredients

  • Peaches – the peaches make this smoothie bowl pop with flavor. I use frozen peaches as they are already pitted and peeled and easy to keep in the freezer and make the smoothie thick and creamy. You can use any peaches you prefer including fresh or canned (in juice, drained). Be sure to add about 1/4 cup of ice to the smoothie to help create the same consistency as frozen peaches do.
  • Banana – the banana naturally sweetens this smoothie. The riper the banana you use the sweeter the smoothie will be. If you are using a frozen banana it will help to create an extra thick and creamy smoothie. If you don’t have frozen banana, no problem. Just add in about 1/4 cup of ice to create the same texture. Freezing bananas is super easy, learn how to freeze your own fruit.
  • Greek yogurt – yogurt really helps to create a super creamy consistency and adds protein to the smoothie.  Feel free to use regular yogurt or dairy free yogurt.
  • Dairy free milk – I typically use and recommend using any kind of dairy free milk you have on hand to keep this recipe vegan and dairy free friendly. Use almond milk, oat milk, cashew milk, coconut milk (in the carton or in the can), flax milk, etc. If you are not dairy free you can use regular dairy milk here.
  • Chia seeds – these little seeds are a great source of fiber. Chia seeds also help to make the smoothie super filling and absorb the liquid in the smoothie to thicken the smoothie. If you don’t have chia seeds, you could use ground flax seeds.
  • Protein powder (vanilla) – protein powder helps make this smoothie a well-balanced meal by increasing the protein which helps to make it filling. Additionally, the protein powder helps sweeten the smoothie slightly so if you are using an unsweetened protein powder or prefer to omit protein powder, be sure to add 1-2 pitted medjool dates, honey, or maple syrup to sweeten slightly. I typically recommend using a vegan protein powder as they help thicken the smoothie verses whey-based proteins. However, you can use whatever you have on hand. Be sure to review my article on the best protein powders for smoothies.

How to make a peach banana smoothie bowl

  • Measure the ingredients into a high-speed blender in the order listed.
  • Blend on high until smooth.
  • Pour into a bowl and add your favorite toppings.
  • Enjoy immediately.

Top tips

  • If you don’t have a super strong blender, I recommend buying chia protein, which is just finely ground chia seeds that easily mix into your smoothie. It also helps the chia seeds not get stuck in your teeth which is a bonus.
  • Depending on how you like your smoothie bowl, you can adjust the thickness by adding more or less water/milk to the recipe. This smoothie bowl is very thick so it can support all the toppings, if you want a thinner consistency add 1/4 cup. I don’t recommend reducing the liquid much more or your blender may have trouble breaking down the frozen fruit.
  • If you don’t have any peaches, you can substitute any combination of berries or fruits such as: mango, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries or even dark sweet cherries.
  • If you don’t have a banana on hand you can substitute mango or 1/3 cup of oats and 1 tbsp honey, maple syrup or 2 pitted dates for sweetness.
  • I always recommend using all frozen fruit as I prefer the creamier consistency and texture of the smoothie. But you can use a variety of fresh, canned, and frozen or just fresh. If you want to use fresh fruit, be sure to add about 1/2 cup of ice to get the same texture.

Other additions

  • Sweetness – you can dial up the sweetness by adding a tablespoon of honey or maple syrup or 1-2 dates (pitted). You could also add some strawberries or dark sweet cherries.
  • Veggies – get in a serving of vegetables by adding 1/2 cup of cauliflower rice, spinach, kale, carrots or steamed beets to get some veggies. The fruit, yogurt and protein powder will hide any taste that you snuck in some veggies.
  • Creaminess – to make this a super thick smoothie bowl you could add 1/2 avocado, 1/4 cup oats, cauliflower rice or nut butter.
  • Spices – add a little extra spice by including cinnamon, ginger, cardamom or pumpkin spice.

Topping ideas

  • The best part about peach smoothie bowls are the toppings so be sure to pick your favorites! Here are some great ideas:
  • Fresh fruit – bananas, peaches, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries
  • Cereal or granola for crunch
  • Chopped nuts or seeds
  • Nut butter – almond butter, tahini, cashew butter, peanut butter, sunbutter
  • Coconut flakes (regular or toasted)
  • Hemp hearts, flax or chia seeds

Common questions

What is a smoothie bowl?

A smoothie bowl is a thick and creamy blend of fruits, vegetables, and other ingredients. While a smoothie is typically served in a cup to drink, a smoothie bowl is served in a bowl with a mixture of delicious toppings, such as granola, nuts, seeds, fruit, and nut butters to add texture and flavor. Smoothie bowls are an easy and nutritious breakfast or snack and are easily customizable to fit any taste preference or dietary need.

How to make a smoothie bowl.

Making a smoothie bowl is simple with one added step to your traditional smoothie.

  • Measure out the ingredients.
  • Blend and pour into a bowl.
  • Add your favorite toppings and enjoy.

Is this peach and banana smoothie bowl healthy?

The peach banana smoothie bowl benefits are numerous. It is packed with vitamin C, potassium, antioxidants, calcium, fiber and protein, making it a super filling meal. Made with healthy and delicious ingredients, this recipe is well-balanced compared to a smoothie you would buy from your favorite smoothie shop or coffee bar. Because of the potassium and protein, this peach smoothie bowl would be a great post-workout meal too!

How to select the perfect peach

If you are going to use fresh peaches and want to make a peach banana smoothie bowl right away be sure to get ripe peaches that have a little give when you’re handling them. Make sure they don’t have any bruising. Remember, the softer the peach is, the riper and juicier it will be.

If you won’t be making this recipe for several days, I would recommend getting a firmer peach and allowing it to ripen on your kitchen counter before use.

How to make this smoothie more filling

To make this smoothie even more filling add from one or two of the below groups.

  • Fiber – this recipe has banana and chia seeds which adds fiber. Additionally, you could add about 1/2 cup of veggies such as spinach, cauliflower rice, kale, zucchini, beets, carrots or 1/4 – 1/2 cup of rolled oats to increase the fiber.
  • Protein – this smoothie already has a good amount of protein from the protein powder and Greek yogurt, but you can increase it more by adding collagen peptides (not vegan) or hemp hearts and/or almond butter either blended or as toppings. Be sure to check out all my favorite ways to add protein to smoothies.
  • Healthy fats – healthy fats can make a smoothie more satisfying. The addition of nut butter, coconut butter, coconut or whipped cream or coconut flakes would be so good with this smoothie. Other good options would be nuts, seeds, tahini, sunbutter or avocado.

How to make a smoothie bowl thicker

This smoothie bowl is already really thick. I would test out the recipe as is first before making adjustments. However, to make this banana peach smoothie bowl thicker you could add a 1/2 avocado or 1/4 cup oats.

Do you have to use frozen fruit for smoothies?

No, you can use a combination of fresh, canned, and frozen fruit or all fresh fruit. To get the very best creamy texture I do recommend using frozen fruit. If you are going to use fresh fruit or canned fruit, be sure to add 1/2 cup of ice.

Can you make this banana peach smoothie bowl recipe in advance?

Since smoothies can start to separate after they are blended up, this smoothie bowl is best when fresh. If you need to make this in advance, I recommend re-blending the smoothie bowl ingredients with a few ice cubes to help thicken it up and ensure it has the best texture.

You can also make freezer prep bags to prep this smoothie bowl in advance. Simply measure out all the ingredients, except the liquid into a freezer safe container. When you are ready to make the smoothie, simply dump everything into the blender, add the liquid and blend. No measuring required.

Can you use any blender to make a smoothie bowl?

Yes, however, I recommend a high-powered blender with a strong motor and sharp blades. This makes sure your smoothie bowl comes out smooth and creamy. Because there is less liquid in smoothie bowls than traditional smoothies, it’s really best to use a high speed blender or even a food processor instead of an older blender with dull blades.

Frozen fruit, ice and nuts can be tough to blend in older less powerful blenders. A blender with a tamper tool or built in tamper can be helpful to push down ingredients and ensure an evenly blended and consistent texture.

Storing leftover smoothie

Depending on your toppings I would use caution when storing leftovers. Toppings such as granola, cereal and fresh fruit can become soggy if left for too long. I recommend removing any remaining toppings before storing and then using one of the following methods:

  • Fridge– You can store any leftover smoothie bowl in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Re-blend with a few ice cubes for the best texture and consistency before serving.
  • Freezer– Freeze leftover banana peach smoothie bowl recipe in the freezer for up to a month once blended up. Pour any leftover smoothie into an ice cube mold or into a Soupercube mold to freeze. Once frozen, transfer to a freezer safe container such as Stasher bags. When you are ready to enjoy, you can blend the cubes into a different smoothie for more flavor or blend the cubes together with milk for a quick smoothie without any added ingredients.

Substitutions

  • Peaches – use fresh, frozen, or canned peaches. If you use canned be sure it is canned in juice and drained before use. Peaches can be substituted with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, dark sweet cherries, or mango.
  • Banana – If you don’t have banana, you can replace it with avocado, mango, sweet potatoes, canned coconut milk or 1/3 cup of oats and 1-2 tablespoons of honey, maple syrup or pitted dates.
  • Yogurt – you can replace the yogurt in this recipe with 1/2 an avocado or 1/2 a frozen banana. You can also simply omit it from the recipe and increase the milk from 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup.
  • Dairy free milk – use whatever milk you have on hand or love. You can also use water or coconut water for even more electrolytes.
  • Chia seeds – use ground flax seeds to replace chia seeds or you can use ground chia seeds (sometimes labeled chia protein) in place of the chia seeds. If you don’t have chia seeds or a replacement, you can simply omit them.
  • Protein powder – if you don’t have protein powder, you can add 1/4 cup of rolled oats plus 1-2 tablespoons of honey, maple syrup or 1-2 pitted medjool dates.
