This strawberry peach smoothie is perfect for summer and so easy to prepare. With fresh peaches, strawberries and cottage cheese for added protein, this smoothie is perfect for a quick breakfast or snack.
I drink smoothies almost everyday.
I’m always looking for new combinations of fruits and added ingredients to keep them both interesting and healthy.
This strawberries and peaches in this recipe work well together and the addition of cottage cheese gives it a creamy, cheesecake like flavour, while adding some protein.
I like to make sure at least half of the fruit I add to my smoothies is frozen, this will help keep the smoothie both creamy and thick.
If you have a high powered blender, like the Vitamix, you can even use a higher ratio of frozen fruit for a smoothie so thick you need a spoon (which is actually my favourite way to enjoy smoothies.)
Why this recipe works
This strawberry peach smoothie recipe uses simple, easy to find ingredients and requires minimal prep time.
It is easy to customize and you can substitute ingredients to suit your personal preference or food allergies.
The addition of cottage cheese gives the smoothie and extra creamy texture while adding protein.
- Almond Milk – I like to use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but you can use whatever you prefer.
- Cottage cheese – Makes the smoothie extra creamy and adds protein. If you don’t like cottage cheese, replace with Greek yogurt
- Peaches – Fresh works best, but can used canned
- Strawberries – use frozen strawberries to make the smoothie extra cold and creamy
- Honey – adds a bit of additional sweetness, can be eliminated or replaced with maple syrup.
If you want to make this smoothie higher in protein simply add a scoop of your favourite protein powder. This recipe works well with vanilla flavoured protein powder and either whey or vegan works well.

Turn this smoothie recipe into healthy popsicles by pouring the blended ingredients into your favourite popsicle moulds and freeze until solid.
Top Tips & FAQS
If you don’t like, or are allergic to almond milk, you can use traditional dairy milk, or you can use oat, soy or pea milk.
You actually can make this smoothie ahead of time. While it is better when it’s consumed right away, it will keep for a day or two in the refrigerator.
I store my unused portions in mason jars with tight fitting lids and give them a shake before drinking them.
If you don’t like cottage cheese, Greek yogurt is a great substitute in this recipe.
