As the weather warms up, cool down with a chilled glass of Strawberry Peach Smoothie. A mixture of ripe fruit, yogurt, and citrus juice makes for a quick breakfast or midday snack.
Ripe strawberries have a jammy flavor, that’s sweet with a hint of acidity. When paired with the slightly tart flavor of yellow peaches they are the perfect pairing.
I like to add some Greek yogurt and banana slices, for a creamier texture and extra protein in each serving. The natural sweetness and acidity in the orange juice brightens and balances the taste of the smoothie.

Tips for Making Smoothies
I use frozen strawberries and peaches to create the perfect consistency and you’ll use less ice so you won’t dilute the flavor of the smoothie. They’ve been picked and frozen at their peak ripeness, so they taste just as delicious as fresh fruit in this application.
Add the ice and fruit first, so that the blender blades have more time to break them into tiny pieces for a smoother texture. Next add the bananas, yogurt, and orange juice. The liquid will help process the ingredients. Add more liquid as needed to adjust the consistency.
Ways to Prep Smoothie Ingredients Ahead of Time
I like to portion individual servings of fruit into resealable zip-top bags. Go ahead and add the sliced bananas to save on time as well. When you’re ready to make your smoothies, just add the frozen items to the blender, along with your yogurt and juice, then blend.
Strawberry Peach Smoothie Swaps and Substitutions
Here are a few swaps and substitutions to mix up your smoothie game:
- To make the beverage dairy-free, substitute the yogurt with coconut cream, or plant-based yogurt.
- If you’d like a sweeter smoothie, add in a few teaspoons of honey, agave syrup, or pure maple syrup.
- For a more tropical flavor, use pineapple, guava, mango or passion fruit juice as your liquid base.
- For a creamier taste, use coconut milk, oat milk or almond milk instead of orange juice.
