Unlike other smoothies, this simple recipe doesn't use any artificially flavored ingredients or refined sugars. The fresh flavors of mango and peach are highlighted by the cozy flavors of cinnamon and vanilla for a nutritious smoothie that tastes more like a milkshake.

Ingredients and Substitutions
The grocery list for this easy peach fruit smoothie recipe is short and sweet. Please note that for the best consistency, you should use chilled ingredients.
- Greek Yogurt - I love how thick, creamy and protein-rich greek yogurt is. Feel free to swap in a non-dairy version if you prefer, or use another thick yogurt product like labneh or skyr. If you use dairy, you can use skim, low-fat or whole milk yogurt per your liking.
- Peaches - I opted to use fresh sliced peaches for this smoothie recipe, as they are being sold in abundance at the moment. Don't feel like you have to peel them, either! If peaches aren't in season, or if you prefer a thicker smoothie, you can easily swap in frozen peach slices instead.
- Frozen Mango - I chose to use frozen mango cubes for this smoothie for two reasons: First, I love the texture that this frozen fruit has when blended! Frozen mango becomes creamy all on its own when blended, giving this peach smoothie a lovely consistency. Second, convenience! There's no need to peel or chop a mango if you're using frozen.
- Milk - I used dairy milk for this smoothie. Feel free to use anything from skim to whole milk here. You can also easily opt to use your favorite dairy free milk; just note that the nutritional facts will change depending on what type you choose.
- Vanilla Extract - This is technically an optional ingredient, but I love the depth of flavor it gives to this frozen beverage. The added depth of flavor is worth it, if you have vanilla on hand.
- Cinnamon - Cinnamon is a friend of peaches, and using it in this smoothie recipe gives the flavor an air reminiscent of a peach pie or peach crumble. It also happens to have a whole host of nutritional benefits, so just go ahead and add it, okay?
- Maple Syrup - Adding just a tablespoon of this liquid sweetener does enough to bring the flavor of this smoothie into dessert territory. You can opt to omit it if you prefer, or swap in honey or agave syrup instead.
TIP: you can freeze peach slices and use "frozen peaches" in this smoothie recipe. "Frozen fruit" gives nice and thick smoothie especially if you are willing to turn it into smoothie bowl. Also, freezing in bulk helps you enjoy this smoothie when they are not in season.
How to make My Peach Smoothie
Smoothies are one of my favorite ways to sneak in some nutrition very quickly. Once you see how easy this peach smoothie recipe is, you'll know why!
Combine all the ingredients on a high powered blender in the order they are listed. If you are using frozen peaches instead of fresh, you may need to adjust the amount of liquid added to help the blender process the fruit.
NOTE: In my many years of smoothie making, I have learned that adding the liquid ingredients to the blender first helps the blades pull the frozen fruit pieces in.
Blend everything well until smooth and uniform. Taste and adjust to your liking - add a bit extra sweetener for more of a peach shake vibe; add more frozen fruit to thicken it up (or turn it into a smoothie bowl!); add more liquid to loosen it.
Pour in serving glasses and enjoy!
If you're vegan, you can easily make a few substitutions to make this peach mango smoothie fit your lifestyle. Simply swap in your favorite non-dairy milk and non-dairy yogurt. Just be sure to opt for unsweetened to preserve the nutritional integrity!
Absolutely! Just be sure to opt for peaches packed in juice rather than peaches packed in syrup. They syrup is code for LOTS of added sugar. As a bonus of picking juice-packed fruit, you can also swap in the juice for part or all of the milk in the recipe!
Technically, sure. You will still end up with a frozen smoothie without the addition of yogurt, but you'll also skip out on a lot of probiotic and protein packed goodness. If you don't have any yogurt on hand, you can substitute cottage cheese or silken tofu to replace some of the creamy consistency and nutrition from the yogurt.
If you'd rather eat your peach fruit smoothie with a spoon, more power to you! Simply reduce the amount of liquid added and opt to use frozen peaches to help thicken the consistency. After blending, pour the smoothie into a bowl and top with your favorite fresh fruit, crunchy granola and/or toasted nuts and seeds. YUM!
As with most frozen drinks, this peach mango smoothie is best served immediately after blending. I recommend investing in an insulated cup with a straw to preserve the life of the drink over a few hours.
You can also pop any leftovers into the fridge for up to a day. Just note that the frozen element (if using frozen peaches) of the smoothie will defrost over time and will affect the overall consistency.
You sure can! Any leftovers can also be poured into popsicle molds and frozen for a cooling, healthy dessert on another day.
Variations and Add-ins
While my Mango Peach Smoothie recipe is pretty perfect as is, you should feel free to customize it to your heart's content. Here are a few ways to make it your own:
- Add (or substitute) different fruits : Try using your favorite berry, frozen avocado, pineapple, or banana in addition to the mango and peach, or swap the mango out for whatever frozen fruit you have on hand. You can also try pear, kiwi, or apple!
- Healthy add-ins : Amp up the nutrition by adding in a tablespoon of your favorite protein powder or supplement. You can also easily sneak in some veggies by adding a handful of spinach to the mix. You can also bulk up this smoothie by adding in whole grains, nuts or seeds. Try oatmeal, chia, hemp hearts, or flaxseed.
- Liquid swaps: Don't have milk on hand? Try using kefir for an added dose of probiotics and a touch more tang. You can also use fruit juice in place of milk; try mango juice, orange juice or peach nectar.
- Flavor boosters: Add a splash of lemon or lime juice for more acidity; add fresh grated or ground dried ginger to make it spicier; swap in coconut milk for a more tropical vibe.
However you make your mango peach smoothie, it's bound to be delicious!
