Cosmic Explosion Smoothie

I gave myself a big pat on the back after making this smoothie! Simply put, this one is amazing! I was hoping to incorporate a fruit I don’t normally use in my smoothies and just happened to have a couple of ripe nectariens lying around the kitchen. So, I looked around to see what else I had and ended up using some frozen strawberries I had just put in the freezer the day before, added a banana and then tossed in the nectarine and pure amazingness happened.

The Recipe

  • About 8 oz of frozen strawberries (or one BIG hand full)
  • 1 pitted nectarine (ripe is essential)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of almond milk

Blend in high speed blender until smooth. Optionally, you can add greens to this as well. I actually ended up adding a huge hand-full of spinach after taking the picture and it didn’t affect the taste too much at all. This will definitely be a repeat smoothie for me. The nectarine really added some punch to what would normally be a mundane strawberry banana smoothie.

    Great to know! I love strawberry banana flavor, but my s-b smoothies are always bland. The nectarine is a great addition.
