A quick and simple breakfast, this Peach Strawberry Smoothie comes together easily and will help keep you full all morning!
This Peach Strawberry Smoothie is one of my all-time favorite go-to fruit smoothie recipes. I love how simple and basic it is, but I also love how easily you can adapt it to suit your tastes. As written, there are no additional vegetables in the smoothie, but you can easily add many different veggies to up the nutrition content.
You can also add various fillers to add extra protein and complex carbohydrates to keep you fuller for longer.
It also comes together incredibly quickly – total time to make it is about 3 minutes from start to finish.
- Frozen Peaches
- Frozen Strawberries
- Greek Yogurt
- Water/Orange Juice/Non-Dairy milk of choice
- Honey or the sweetener of your choice
- Chia Seeds

Flavor: the peach flavor really shines through in this one, which is why it’s an all-time fave.
Texture: thick and creamy, like all good smoothies should be 😊
Ease: 1/10 – just throw everything together in a blender and blend until fully combined.

Tips and Tricks:
When building the smoothie, always make sure to start with the liquid and go from there starting with the softer ingredients. In this case, I went: water, yogurt, peaches, strawberries.
When adding extra vegetables to the smoothie, always start off slow and taste as you go. You can always add more, but you can’t take it away once it’s in there. Other than spinach, most vegetables have a distinct flavor that you can taste in the final product. One of my favorite additions to smoothies is cucumber, but it can overwhelm the smoothie easily.
Don’t use plain sugar to make these smoothies, as it doesn’t dissolve in cold liquids. If you don’t want to use honey, you can use simple syrup, which is just a equal mixture of sugar and water that’s mixed together and boiled for 3 minutes until the sugar crystals completely dissolve. It’s easy to make and lasts for a month in the fridge. I always try to keep a bottle on hand.
What can I use instead of Greek yogurt? If you’re trying to keep it vegan, you can sub out your favorite non-dairy yogurt. You could also use banana as a thickener, or avocado. You can also blitz up some minute oats in a food processor until they’re basically oat flour and add that. I like to pre-blitz them before adding because I never feel like the blender can get the texture right.
What about ice? You can definitely add in ice cubes, but keep in mind that the as the ice melts, it will cause the smoothie to thin out considerably.
How much liquid is optimal? Honestly, this is one of those things where it’s really up to you. I generally start with a cup of liquid (usually water) and then go from there. Sometimes that’s enough, but most of the time I’ll end up adding at least another half a cup of water to the smoothie as I go.
Why do you use water? For me, it’s a calorie saving device. Juices and such DO add flavor to the finished smoothie, but they tend to be pretty flavorful without them, and I don’t see the need to add the extra calories when it’s not needed. I’d rather add more ingredients I love (like extra fruit) than unnecessary fillers.
