Nectarine + Orange Smoothie

Nectarines

We got a 5lb box of nectarines at Trader Joe’s last week. The Hubster was dubious that we (and by we, he totally meant me) could finish them before they went bad. It was a challenge that I happily took on. Particularly as I bit into that first sweet, juicy, and delicious nectarine.

To say it was love at first bite would be a gross understatement.

That first 5lb’s? Gone in 4 days. When we went back to get another 5lb box, they were out. So we had to settle for the smaller pint. And while they are equally as delicious, they are seriously going way too fast.

And while I’ve been enjoying eating the nectarines as is, I thought it was time to try incorporating their juicy flesh into something new. A smoothie seemed like a good place to start.

I think I had the same fascination with nectarines this time last year, as evidenced by the Pear Nectarine Smoothie.

And just in case you were wondering, that is an avocado thrown in for good measure.

The only thing missing from this bad boy: strawberries.

I was slightly heartbroken that we didn’t have any more fresh-picked strawberries from Simmons Farms in the house. Those would have taken this smoothie from the level of “pretty darn awesome” to “amazzzzzzzzzzing”.

Next on the list of things to make with nectarines: a nectarine crumble.

I’m drooling just thinking about it…
