This year we are all about different milkshake recipes. So far, the peanut butter chocolate milkshake ,mango milkshake , Coconut Milkshake are our favorites. If you’re new to making this summer treat at home, make sure to check out our tutorial on how to make milkshake. I think it’s also helpful to have a healthier milkshake recipe like this no ice cream one at hand for the times you don’t want to indulge.

About this recipe

Milkshakes are very indulgent and delicious. Sometimes, I crave the taste of a milkshake but want a lighter variation that doesn’t use ice cream. This healthy milkshake uses frozen yogurt and is still creamy and satisfying. It’s very customizable and you can use your favorite fruit or flavors to make it.


Healthy Milkshake ingredients are peaches and nectarines, frozen yogurt and non fat milk.

For this delicious and easy milkshake recipe you need the following ingredients:

  • Frozen yogurt: My favorite to use is the vanilla flavor since you can make different flavors of milkshake with it.
  • Milk: You can use 1% or fat-free milk for this recipe. Nut milks such as almond or cashew milk work too.
  • Flavors: I used nectarines, but you can use any other fruit such as bananas, mangos or strawberries.

Pro tip: Place the serving glasses in the freezer for 10 to 20 minutes before serving the milkshake. Cold glasses will keep the milkshakes cold for longer.


You can add protein powder to you milkshake to make it even healthier. For this particular recipe, add vanilla flavored protein powder.

Other ways to jazz up this milkshake is to use other fruits such as strawberries or bananas. If craving a healthy chocolate milkshake, use chocolate frozen yogurt and leave out any fruit and add a tablespoon of peanut butter if you like.

Frequently asked questions

Can I use dairy free milk?

Yes, you can use almond, cashew, soy or coconut milk for this recipe.

Is it possible to use frozen fruit instead of fresh?

Absolutely. Frozen fruit makes this healthy milkshake even creamier.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Milkshakes don’t keep well after some minutes so it’s best to serve them right after making them.

This easy milkshake recipe is perfect for kids and adults. Top with a slice of peach and drink with a straw.

    Another recipe for when the peach season comes along this year. Frozen yogurt and milk substitute ice cream so well, I wonder how I ever made smoothies without them. Thanks for sharing!
