Smoothies are one of our most favorite snacks during the warm spring and hot summer months. They come together quickly, they are healthy and they are also delicious. This raspberry peach smoothie is one of our go-tos when it gets warmer outside. I make sure we always have the ingredients on hand for when we get a craving. The flavors just burst in this smoothie. You get a burst of peach flavor and then raspberry. We used raspberry yogurt for an extra punch but vanilla yogurt or even greek yogurt will work just as well.
What’s in the Raspberry Peach Smoothie?
The ingredients are pretty self-explanatory and you can customize it any way you want. It’s simply the fruit you want with some milk and honey as a sweetener. The fruit is usually sweet enough, but we love adding honey to anything we can! This tasty smoothie makes a healthy breakfast as well.
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup frozen peaches
- 3/4 cup frozen raspberries
- 1-2 TBSP honey
Instead of using frozen fruit you can use fresh peach slices or fresh raspberries, just be sure to add some ice. The frozen berries are what help with the smoothie part. If you don’t want to use regular milk, you can use one cup almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk instead.
To make this smoothie, all you have to do is add the ingredients to a high-speed blender and press BLEND! Some blenders work better than others so just add more or less milk to reach the desired thickness. We like ours nice and creamy so we can drink it with a straw.
How Do You Make a Good Smoothie At Home?
Maybe you’ve had trouble blending smoothies on your own before. Some blenders don’t love the solids being near the blade and prefer the liquids to be the base of the smoothie. Try adding your liquids and then the solids to the blender before hitting blend. If you have to add ice cubes, add it last so it doesn’t get stuck to the blades.
What Are Other Healthy Things I Can Add to My Smoothie?
While this smoothie isn’t meant to be a green smoothie, you can add anything you want to it. Some people love to add chia seeds and spinach to their smoothies, especially if it is a breakfast smoothie. Add your favorite fresh fruit or orange juice to make a tart smoothie. Greek yogurt and protein powder are other great options for smoothies. They are filling, healthy, and hardly detectable in the taste.
Can I Eat This Smoothie in a Bowl?
The amounts for the ingredients may be a bit watery to put in a bowl, but you can alter the amounts. With the smoothie-bowl craze, it only makes sense to mention that this raspberry peach smoothie recipe can be eaten with a spoon if you would like. Add less milk and more frozen berries to make it a thick smoothie. Top the frosty base with fresh peaches and one cup raspberries and it’s a great snack or meal for any time of the day.
