The simple things in life are the best. That sums up how I feel about this nectarine smoothie.
This nectarine smoothie is light, refreshing, and has a delightful sweet flavor and incredible creamy texture because of the ripe fresh nectarines.
Nectarines come second only to mangoes for me in their solo ability to cream up a smoothie. Because of their natural velvety texture, nectarines are brilliant additions to smoothies. and you don’t need to add bananas, avocado or raw nuts. Their natural sweetness also cuts through the earthy gritty taste of some greens.
This smoothie is literally all about the nectarines. You could make this smoothie green by adding some baby spinach or romaine. Use filtered water instead of raw coconut water if you don’t have it. You can also leave out the ginger, if you don’t want the heat. I like salting the rim of my glass to turn this into a mocktail. Make this recipe your own. Just don’t compromise on the quality of your nectarines. Use high quality nectarines at the peak of ripeness and flavor for the best results. Just blend and add ice for flavor fever.
Don’t miss this nectarine smoothie. It’s blendsational.
