There are only 5 basic ingredients in this 5-minute peach shake recipe. You need:
- Ripe peaches – pitted but with the skins left on
- Vanilla ice cream – store-bought or homemade
- Granulated sugar – or your preferred sugar alternative
- Vanilla extract – to get most delicious shake flavor

Frequently Asked Questions
Definitely! Use 2 cups of frozen peaches in place of the fresh peaches. If you leave the slices frozen they will make the shake extra thick, so you can defrost them first for a shake with “regular” thickness.
This recipe is super easy to make vegan-friendly! Simply swap the regular ice cream with your favorite brand of non-dairy ice cream or homemade Coconut Milk Ice Cream. Top with vegan whipped cream and a cherry for the full authentic shake experience.
