I love using chia seeds in smoothies and have shared a couple of my favorites here including my Strawberry Banana Chia Seed Smoothies and my Chocolate Banana Chia Seed Smoothies. Today, I’m sharing another favorite, these delicious Peach Banana Chia Seed Smoothies.

Peach Season

Late summer is peach season here in New England and peach picking is a favorite family activity. We are currently up at our lake house in Grand Isle, Vermont. There aren’t any peach orchards here on the island, so, peach picking will have to wait until we return to our house in Massachusetts.


Luckily, the local island market and some of the larger farm stands often carry fresh off-island peaches, and my husband was able to pick up some fresh peaches at the market this week.

Yesterday, after my morning run, I spied the peaches in the fruit basket. I decided to make a batch of these delicious and refreshing Peach Banana Chia Seed Smoothies.

Peaches and bananas are such a nice combination. The chia seeds add additional fiber and protein. This recipe makes two smoothies, one was the perfect post-run snack. My husband, who was working from home, enjoyed the other.

Chia Seeds are Natural Thickeners

I love using frozen bananas in smoothies, such as this, as then you don’t need to add ice, which can melt and water down the smoothies. Chia seeds are also natural thickeners. They expand when they absorb liquid. So, if you can’t enjoy the whole batch immediately, these smoothies keep quite nicely in the refrigerator.

    This smoothie looks so fresh, I love adding chia seeds to my smoothies too to make them a little healthier! I also love peaches in my smoothies, this seems like a great recipe for using peaches that are getting over ripe that you need to stick in the freezer.
