Why We Love This Easy Peach Raspberry Smoothie Recipe
We are huge smoothie fans in this house, both Mom and Dad and all the kids. We love smoothies with simple ingredients, and our smoothies are mostly all vegan and dairy free because we have one kiddo with allergies and we are trying to eat a more plant-based diet.
This smoothie has three delicious fruits plus fruit juice and sesame seeds – all low calorie foods that are high in fiber (except the apple juice) and packed with vitamins and minerals.
It tastes great and is super refreshing, especially on a hot summer day. Try it frozen as smoothie pops!
Ingredients in Our Raspberry Peach Smoothie Recipe
Apples are wonderful sources of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They are also low in calories and have a high water content.
It’s fine to use either red or green apples in this smoothie. It really depends on the level of sweetness you want, how much sugar you want in your smoothie (even though it’s natural) and what you have on hand.
Peaches are a great source of fiber, vitamins A and C, potassium, and magnesium. They are also low in calories and have a high water content.
You can use fresh or frozen peaches in this recipe. In the summer when peaches are fresh here in the South I will use a nice fresh peach, but all the other times of the year I buy frozen peach slices for convenience.
Raspberries are an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C, manganese, and zinc. They are also low in calories and have a high water content.
I love using raspberries in smoothies because they add a delicious tart flavor. You can use fresh raspberries or frozen raspberries. I usually have frozen raspberries on hand so that’s what I use most often in smoothies.
Apple juice helps to thin out the smoothie and make it easier to blend. It also adds sweetness.
You could use any type of liquid in this recipe, but we like the taste of apple juice best with the other ingredients.
Sesame seeds add a little protein, fiber, and healthy fats to this smoothie. They also give it a bit of a nutty flavor.
If you don’t have sesame seeds on hand, you could use chia seeds, flax seeds, or hemp hearts. Or you could omit them altogether.
How to Make Our Peach Raspberry Smoothie
This smoothie is really easy to make! Just add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
If you’re using fresh peaches and apples, you may want to peel them first. I don’t usually bother because the skin is thin and it’s just an extra step, plus there is more nutrition in the skin.

How to Customize this Healthy Smoothie Recipe
Make it a green smoothie: Add a handful of spinach or kale to the blender. These greens blend well with most flavors and you’ll add an amazing amount of nutrients with leafy greens.
Add protein for a protein smoothie: Add a scoop of protein powder or 1/2 cup Greek yogurt. I find that vanilla protein powder works especially well with this recipe, and it’s a great breakfast smoothie with protein to keep you feeling full.
Make it sweeter: Add a tablespoon or two of honey, agave nectar, or pure maple syrup. A frozen banana is another great option.
Thicken it up: Add 1/2 cup oats or 1/4 cup chia seeds. These ingredients will also add some protein and fiber. You can easily make this recipe into a smoothie bowl by adding one of these ingredients or even just reducing the amount of liquid. Then, add some delicious toppings to your smoothie bowl, like granola, fresh sweet raspberries or fresh sliced peach.
Change the liquid: Use almond milk, cashew milk, or coconut milk instead of apple juice. You could also use plain water, orange juice or coconut water.
Add superfoods: Add a few pieces of fresh ginger, a scoop of green powder, or a handful of blueberries. You could also add spirulina, greens powder or other superfoods for a nutritional boost.
As you can see, there are endless possibilities for customizing this recipe to make it your own. I hope you enjoy it!
