This Banana Peach Smoothie recipe is creamy, sweet and loaded with protein! This smoothie is naturally dairy free, whole30 friendly, and autoimmune protocol friendly. You can have breakfast ready to go in 5 minutes with this recipe and you would never know it can be made without yogurt! This recipe is not only healthy and nutritious but is also refreshing and can help satisfy that sweet tooth.
This recipe was inspired by my hubby. The banana peach combo is one of his favorite easy snack or easy breakfast. The ripe bananas and healthy fats give this smoothie the perfect creamy texture. You could make these ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator for a quick breakfast in the car or an easy delicious snack for both adults and kids.
Any easy recipe that I can dump and go is a favorite of mine! I’m always looking for healthy snacks for on the go and this is one of the best things to take with me. If it is a hot day, I will use frozen fruit so that it comes out like a thicker smoothie and will eat it from a bowl to get the same refreshing and cooling effect as the sorbet from my childhood without all of the added sugar and fillers. If you choose to use fresh peaches, you could also make my Vegan Peach Cobbler with the extra or freeze them for the next time you want this smoothie.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe
- It is so simple! You just dump everything in a blender, blend it up until smooth, and enjoy!
- This recipe is paleo, gluten free, dairy free, whole30 friendly, autoimmune protocol friendly, and soy free.
- Kids will love this recipe too. The whole family will!
- This easy recipe is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth without having to turn on your oven and has plenty of nutritional benefits you can feel good about
- You can switch this recipe up by also using it for homemade popsicles or a smoothie bowl.
- Not only is it easy to make but the clean up is just as simple! It takes just a little bit of time to pull this one together!
- Dairy free milk-I like the canned coconut milk from Trader Joe’s. It doesn’t have any additives and is delicious. If you are not dairy free or doing the whole30 or AIP you can use regular milk.
- Fresh peach-Make sure it is ripe for best results and optimal peach flavor! The best way to tell if a peach is ripe is if it is soft. Frozen peaches will typically go through the freezing process at the peak of freshness. This recipe is great for peak peach season!
- Ripe banana-I like to eat my bananas with a few brown spots. The riper they are, the sweeter they are. You could also use a banana that you previous froze. You will just want to allow the banana to thaw completely before blending.
- Collagen peptides-I use collagen peptides over protein powder. Whey protein contains dairy and I do not do well with dairy nor do I do well with pea protein. If you are not doing the Whole30 or do not have dietary issues, you can use regular protein powder. I like these collagen peptides HERE.
- Optional-Mixed greens to get more vegetables in. If you are doing the Whole30 or autoimmune protocol, be sure to add the veggies! I love to add spinach to my smoothies!

Substitutions and Variations
- If you do not have fresh banana and peach, you can use frozen! It will change the consistency of the smoothie though since the fruit will be frozen. You can allow the fruit to thaw first so that you can ensure there is no change to the consistency and no added liquid.
- You can use your favorite dairy-free milk of choice! I prefer almond or coconut milk. You can use soy milk, oat milk, or any other vegan options. You just want to make sure that you choose a milk that is unsweetened and unflavored.

Step by Step Instructions
Photo 1: First, place all of your ingredients in your blender. Then, blend until smooth.
- Tip # 1: To save additional time, you can pre-measure your fruit and place in individual bags so that all you need to do is dump your fruit, add your liquids, and blend!
- Tip # 2: Make sure you scrape down the sides of the blender and then blend more to ensure the smoothie is fully combined.
- Tip # 3: You can change the consistency of the smoothie to smoother by adding additional liquid. Or you can have it be more of a slushy consistency by using frozen fruit or adding ice.
Yes! What matters is what you put in your smoothies. Typically we suggest staying away from fruit based smoothies when doing both of these diets, however if you add the collagen peptides and greens, you are good to go!
For sure! I made them at the start of the week for my husband to drink on his way to work. We put them in mason containers, I like these containers. I suggest storing them in the fridge for up to 5 days.
