Nectarine Smoothie

This recipe was born out of a need to quickly use up a 15-lb case of organic nectarines before they would spoil. It has become an absolute favorite in our house! Nectarines, like peaches, are on the "dirty dozen" of conventionally grown produce, so look for organic ones. In the summer, our local Sam's Club carries 4 lb boxes of organic nectarines for about $6.50 - maybe yours does, too. Peaches make a great substitute for some or all of the nectarines.





Ingredients

about 6 - 8 nectarines, washed, pitted, with skins
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup raw honey
about 2 cups ice cubes
about 3/4 cup water
Add ingredients to mixer in order listed. Blend on high until smooth, adding more or less water as necessary.

  2. These look amazing. If I buy commercial peaches or nectarines, at the very least, I peel them to remove some of the pesticides. Blessings!
