I am seriously loving peach season this year. It has come at us full force with the help of a local farm fruit stand that is less than a block away. It is nearly impossible not to stop there daily and pick up a few of those beauties!

We have been adding peaches to our snacking for the last few weeks and have slowly been incorporating them into breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Last week my eleven year old requested a smoothie. Who am I to deny him?

A quick search in the refrigerator had me pulling out a few basic ingredients. I tossed them into the blender, gave it a good pulse, and presented the creation to my very picky eater. He instantly declared this his FAVORITE smoothie of all time.

Peach Smoothie Ingredients:

I cannot stress enough how simple this recipe is. It uses only three easy ingredients.

  • Frozen Peaches- Fresh can be used in place of frozen. I like to use frozen fruit instead of fresh to avoid adding ice. If you do opt for fresh, add 1/2 to 1 cup of ice to the blender.
  • Vanilla yogurt – you could also use plain with a touch of honey if you’d like!
  • Juice- I had this can of peach nectar which was AMAZING. However, we have also used orange and mango juice with equally delicious results!

Optional add-in ingredients: Granola, pinch of ground cinnamon, honey or agave.

Best liquid to put in a smoothie:

I would not say there is one best liquid to use in a smoothie. It will really depend on the flavor profiles, what you have on hand, and what you like. Here are a few of our go-to liquids to add into our smoothies:

  • Milk- 2% is what we always have on hand, but we also use almond milk, coconut milk, or cashew!
  • Juices- Orange, apple, or other fruit juices. These are normally higher in sugar, so I do try to limit the total amount I use or water it down slightly.
  • Water- Specifically, coconut water. Adds just a touch of flavor and is super yummy.

Optional smoothie additions:

Alright, let’s break this down. It is a fantastic base smoothie and very kid friendly, but what can you add to take it to the next level? The options below are some of my favorite ways to make my smoothies a little more filling:

  • Spinach or Kale- Full disclosure, this will make your smoothie a not so fun color, but you can hardly taste the added flavor.
  • Protein powder- This is a simple and easy addition to add a little more of a filling factor.
  • Cottage Cheese- Seems different, but it adds protein and tastes great!
  • Chia, hemp, or flax seed.

Always remember, less is more. This smoothie already has a decent amount of protein with Greek yogurt.

How to make a 3 ingredient peach smoothie:

  1. Pour the peach nectar, or other juice, into the blender. Top with the yogurt and frozen peaches.
  2. Blend, starting at a low power and working up, for 1 to 2 minutes or until the peaches are pureed and the drink is fully mixed.
  3. Divide between two glasses and enjoy!

Smoothie making tips:

  • When making a smoothie add the ingredients to the blender in the following order; liquid, yogurt, fresh fruit, frozen fruit, ice. This will help the blender fully puree all of the ingredients.
  • Use frozen fruit in place of ice for a more bold flavor.
  • If using frozen fruit, consider using half fresh or thawed. This will help your blender cut through all of the ingredients easier.
  • If your smoothie is too sweet, add a touch of lemon juice.
  • If you find your smoothie too tart, add a bit of honey or agave.
  • Add ice if your smoothie is not thick enough.
  • More liquid or yogurt can help thin a smoothie with a too thick texture.
  • Always use a high powered blender.
