Just 5 ingredients and 5 minutes is all you really need to throw it together, so it’s perfect for busy mornings (or anytime you could use a little energizing snack).

🍑 Ingredients you need to make it
Strawberries: You can use fresh or frozen strawberries for this recipe, so you can enjoy it all year round!
Peaches: Fresh or frozen peaches will both work great. If using fresh, you don’t have to peel them before adding to your blender.
Banana: I love the natural sweetness and the thick & cream texture that frozen bananas add to smoothies, but you can also use a fresh banana instead.
Almond milk: Almond milk is a super convenient option for making creamy smoothies, but you can use any milk you like (including regular dairy milk or other non-dairy options like oat milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, hazelnut milk or hemp milk). You can also use water or juice instead.
Lemon juice: If you ever feel like your smoothies are a little bland or one-note try adding some citrus juice. Bottled lemon juice is super convenient to have on hand to make smoothies but you could also use fresh squeezed lemon juice. Lime juice, orange juice and pineapple juice also work great.
For a copycat version of the Daily Harvest Strawberry + Peach Smoothie: Add ¼ cup frozen raspberries, 1 tablespoon of oats, and ½ tablespoon of ground flaxseed along with the other ingredients.
💭 Top tips
Whenever possible, use frozen fruit instead of ice: Frozen ingredients make your smoothies thick and satisfying without watering down the flavors the way ice can. Bonus points that if the smoothie warms up, it’ll still maintain the same great taste and thick, creamy texture.
If using fresh fruit, you can add ice for a thicker texture: This smoothie can be made with fresh or frozen fruit, so feel free to add ice cubes to the blender if you want it to be thicker and colder.
For a thinner smoothie add more milk: I love thick smoothies! In testing this recipe found using frozen fruit for at least 2 out of the 3 fruits used creates the best texture. But for a thinner more easy-to-sip smoothie, increase the amount of almond milk used.
Ways to adjust sweetness: In testing this recipe, I didn’t find it needed added sweetener. But the sweetness of any fruit can vary greatly depending on the season and source, so feel free to adjust to taste by blending in a bit of honey, maple syrup, pitted dates or liquid stevia drops.
🍍 Add ins & variations
With spinach or kale: This mango spinach smoothie recipe is proof of just how well greens like baby spinach or baby kale go with tropical fruits. Add 1-2 cups before blending for an easy strawberry peach green smoothie.
For a boost of fiber & healthy fats: Add in 1 tablespoon of chia seeds or ground flaxseed, or ¼ of an avocado. You can also use ground psyllium husks but be sure to enjoy it soon after blending (since they gel up quickly in liquid).
For a strawberry peach protein smoothie: Add 1-2 scoops of any type of vanilla protein powder, just be sure to use one you like the taste of.
With yogurt: For extra creaminess or for an extra boost of protein (that isn’t from protein powder) add ½ cup of plain unsweetened Greek yogurt.
With coconut water: For an even fruitier & more hydrating smoothie, try substituting coconut water in place of milk.
Without banana: If you want to make this recipe with no banana, you can double up on the peaches, add more ice, or try using frozen riced cauliflower instead (it doesn’t add any flavor and is a great low sugar banana substitute in smoothies).
For a smoothie with pineapple: Add ½ cup pineapple chunks.
For a smoothie with mango: Add ½ cup mango chunks.
🍨 How to make a smoothie bowl
You can turn almost any smoothie recipe into a thick and delicious smoothie bowl just by reducing the amount of liquid you’re using.
It also helps to use as much frozen fruit as possible to help you get that signature, spoonable smoothie bowl texture.
To make a strawberry peach smoothie bowl, reduce the amount of milk down to ¾ cup and be sure to use frozen strawberries, frozen peaches and frozen banana.
You can use any toppings you like, but here’s a few that go really well with this smoothie:
- For texture and crunch: coconut flakes, granola, sliced almonds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, bee pollen
- For fresh fruit: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, banana, mango, kiwi, passionfruit
- Fun extras: honey, coconut butter, almond butter, peanut butter, coconut cream
🧊 Storage, meal prep & freezing tips
This smoothie is very easy to prep ahead, just add all your ingredients (except the milk) for grab and go freezer smoothie packs that you can blend fresh each morning.
Of course, smoothies are at their best when enjoyed right after blending but it is totally possible to store leftovers in the fridge and freezer - here’s a few ways I’ve stored mine.
If you want to enjoy it within the next day or two, you can store it in the fridge in a tightly sealed lidded container (or pop cling wrap or beeswax wrap on top of your smoothie glass). There may be some separation as it sits in the fridge but you can reblend it again, and even add ice, chia seeds or more frozen fruit to thicken it back up again.
If you plan to enjoy it past a few days, you can pour the leftover smoothie mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze it for up to a month. Then when ready to use just pop the smoothie cubes into a blender and add more milk to blend again.
