Banana Nectarine Smoothie

I never made or drank smoothies in my dairy indulging days.  Now they are a staple in my diet.  A good friend of mine introduced me to smoothies without milk products and I remember thinking that was unusual.  I had just assumed that smoothies had to have yogurt or milk.  But lo and behold…they do not need milk and yogurt and they can still be thick and creamy and maybe even dreamy.  I have been hooked ever since.

Smoothies make great breakfasts, snacks or a side with your lunch.  You can dump in just about any fruit combination and they will turn out great.  And add vegetables too!  I usually use spinach in my smoothies.  You cannot taste the spinach, but you are getting the good nutrition of spinach.  My little munchkin thinks it is perfectly normal to put ‘salad’ in smoothies.  However, in this one I use carrots.

I usually do not plan my smoothies or follow a recipe.  I just put in the blender the fruits and vegetables I have on hand.  However, I did take note of what I did today and this was my result.  And it was yummy!  Give it a try!

    Delicious recipe! I love adding vegetables to smoothies, especially
    when it doesn’t alter the taste negatively… Perfect way to sneak veggies
    in for my toddler who isn’t a big veggie fan. Thanks!
