Blending up a peach melba smoothie is a fantastic way to satisfy a dessert craving. When you fancy something sweet but healthy, smoothies like this are the perfect option.
In this article – we share an easy peach melba smoothie recipe that’s both healthy and delicious.
This peach and raspberry smoothie is perfect for breakfast, as a snack between meals, or served as a healthy dessert. Peaches and raspberries are both in season during late summer, between August and September. This means they’re super-sweet, ridiculously juicy, and at their nutritious peak in terms of vitamin content.
It also has around 10% of your vitamin A, dietary fibre, and potassium, which keep your eyes healthy, digestion balanced, and energy levels up.
Peach Melba Smoothie Recipe
Traditionally, peach melba is made up of peaches, raspberry sauce, and vanilla ice-cream. Our simple, 3-ingredient version is vegan-friendly and even healthier, yet maintains the sweet, creamy flavours of an indulgent treat. You can either enjoy it as a blended smoothie or delicious layered dessert.
Here are all the details you need…
- 1 fresh peach, with stone removed
- 1 handful of raspberries (fresh or frozen)
- ½ cup or 125g of dairy-free yogurt (vanilla or coconut)
Blend all the ingredients until smooth - we don't go in for complicated recipes here ;)
Prefer it as a layered dessert?
You can also enjoy this as a layered dessert instead of a blended smoothie…
- Slice half the peach and arrange in the bottom of a mason jar or bowl.
- Spoon the vegan yogurt on top to create a second layer.
- Then blend the remaining peach half with the raspberries, and pour on top.
Is this peach smoothie vegan?
We like to make all our recipes vegan because we’re not big fans of milk. Using a dairy-free yogurt made from soy or coconut means there are no animal products involved. But if you prefer dairy then it’s super-easy to adapt it based on your tastes.
Can I make this peach smoothie without yogurt?
If you prefer your peach smoothie recipe without yogurt (even vegan yogurt), then simply swap it out for frozen banana whip. You can find the instructions in our article on How To Make a Smoothie Without Yogurt or Milk.
Is it OK to use tinned peaches?
For a really healthy peach smoothie, it’s best to use fresh produce. But if that’s not possible then we think tinned is better than no fruit at all. Just be sure to buy the versions in fruit juice or water rather than syrup.
