Healthy. Easy. Delicious. This dreamy almond butter smoothie with bananas and peaches is a favorite around here, especially with my daughter! I know you’ll love it, too!
4 healthy ingredients
This is one of the easiest smoothies we make. Just 4 ingredients are needed.
Peaches – Rich in vitamins C, A, E and K, potassium, fiber and plenty of antioxidants, peaches are a nutritious addition to any diet. [source] I use frozen for convenience all year round and because it gives the drink that cold, frosty texture we all love.
Almond Butter – Look for almond butter that has only one ingredient…almonds. Organic if possible. Costco sells a big container of Organic Creamy Almond Butter at a good price. You’ll get healthy fats, protein, vitamins and minerals. It has less saturated fat, more healthy monounsaturated fat, and more fiber than peanut butter. [source]
Banana – Bananas are known for their potassium content, which may help reduce blood pressure and fluid retention and contribute to good bone health. [source]
Almond Milk – I like unsweetened almond milk for smoothies, but you can use your favorite milk variety. Soy milk or oat milk would both be great choices.
Cinnamon – This is an optional ingredient. You definitely don’t need it as the smoothie is super tasty without and I know it can be a strong taste for some people. But, if you do like cinnamon, I highly recommend adding a pinch for a little extra something that is so yummy!

Do I have to add ice to make a smoothie?
No, you definitely don’t have to use ice to make a smoothie. I prefer using frozen fruit and skipping the ice. You certainly can use ice, though, if you only have fresh fruit available.
What is the best liquid to use?
The liquid you choose is mostly based on your own preferences. I tend to choose almond milk more often than not because we always have it available in our fridge. Any creamy dairy-free milk is a good choice, but water can also work. I like to use coconut water in berry flavored smoothies. If you like a really thick consistency, dairy-free yogurt would be delicious as your liquid.
How to make an Almond Butter Smoothie
Place all the ingredients in a high speed blender and purée until smooth and creamy.
If it’s too thick for your liking, feel free to add more liquid and blend again. On the other hand, if it seems too thin, add more frozen peaches or a bit more almond butter.
Following the original recipe ingredients and instructions will give you the best results, but here are some adaptations that will work if need be.
Nut free – For a nut free option, try using sunflower seed butter and soy or oat milk. You could also add 1/4 cup of raw rolled oats instead of nut/seed butter.
Sweetener – If you don’t like bananas, try throwing in a few pitted Medjool dates. You could also add a tablespoon or two of pure maple syrup to give even more sweetness, but don’t JUST use maple syrup because the banana and/or dates will add creaminess that maple syrup won’t.
Peaches – Don’t love or don’t have peaches? Blueberries or strawberries would be delicious. Or simply double up on the bananas and add some ice (or use frozen bananas).
Liquid – Use your favorite dairy-free milk in this recipe. Water would work as well.
Optional add-ins – Feel free to add in a scoop of protein powder, handful of raw nuts, a tablespoon of chia seeds, flax seeds, or hemp seeds, maca powder (which will give it a malty taste), or a dash of nutmeg. Please note, the more you add, the more liquid you’ll need, so adjust as necessary.
